Here is the 10th and final October Polish Pickup shade I have to share! After a brief little much needed break, Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer is back! I missed her so, and she’s coming back with a bang. Here is Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Not Winding You Up!
I’ve been working with Julie for a couple of years and even have a custom Siren with her. When I saw she was participating in the Polish Pickup for October I was super excited to see her come back! Yay!
Okay first we’re going to go through my spiel on Polish Pickup for those not familiar with it!
Before I get into this lovely shade shown above, we’re going to talk about this new Facebook group and I’m going to describe it’s concept. The group is Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. It’s NOT a box though. I think when it formed that was the major misconception of it.
Now, I love polish boxes, however, some purchasers shared their frustration in only wanting 1 or 2 polishes from a box and needing to unload the polishes in the box they didn’t want. So essentially they were paying $40 and up for 1 or 2 polishes and hoping they could sell the polishes they weren’t interested in.
Polish Pickup is different. While the concept of picking themes and voting isn’t new, instead of buying the whole box, you can shop online for JUST the single polishes you want. There can be many indie makers involved with the theme, but you only have to pay for the exact polishes you wanted rather than 4-8 polishes you may not have been interested in.
Then every month the theme and makers change and you get a whole new set of polishes to pick and choose from. So while it has a box like feel (with the voting and themes) it doesn’t carry the box commitment.
This set of polishes will be available from October 6th at 11am EST through October 9th 11:59pm EST.
The October theme is ‘Monsters & Mythical Creatures’
