Good morning! Before my work day starts I wanted to post another Polish Pickup shade! Here is Cameo Colours Lacquers Happy Holi!
As always, 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 December 1st at 11am EST through December 4th at 11:59pm EST.
The December theme is ‘Holidays Around The World’ so we’re going to see various holidays, some you might be familiar with, some you might learn a little something about through this Polish Pickup theme. I will be adding info about each holiday I cover this month. I know of many of them, but I’m not completely familiar with all of them so this is a learning experience for me as well. If I have inaccuracies about a given holiday, please don’t hesitate to correct me.
Here is the Cameo Colours Lacquers inspiration photo!
Cameo Colours Lacquers took on Holi! Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, also known as the “festival of colours” or the “festival of love”. The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. It is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest. The first evening is known as Holika Dahan or Chhoti Holi and the following day as Holi, Rangwali Holi, Dhuleti, Dhulandi, or Phagwah.
Let’s see what Cameo Colours Lacquers created!
Cameo Colours Lacquers Happy Holi
Cameo Colours Lacquers Happy Holi is a pink leaning magenta jelly based scattered holographic packed with multichrome flakes that show off just about every color of the rainbow, as well as turquoise and gold microflakes, and blue iridescent glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
