Ellagee Sophia, Queen Of The Side Eye

Press Sample Next up for the August 2017 Polish Pickup I have Ellagee Sophia, Queen of the Side Eye! There are 40 indie makers involved this month, so that’s a LOT of polishes to choose from. 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…

Ellagee July 2017 Hella Holo Customs

Press Sample I’m running a tad behind here, but really… when am I not? It feels like time is just slipping by so quickly! For real though, I’m not late or anything and I’m half caught up on swatching, so I’m doing ok over here in this heat! Tonight I have the Ellagee July 2017 Hella Holo Customs to share! Ellagee and Heather’s Hues are the 2 makers for Hella Holo Customs this month, so make sure you join Hella Holo Customs on Facebook to see more swatches! The link to the group is here. Let’s jump in and see Ellagee’s creations! Each bottle has a ring on the cap, each purchase gets these rings on the polish bottles (my photos show which ring goes with which polish!) Let’s take a look! Aquatic Aquatic is an aqua linear holographic with blue and silver shimmer, silvery white microflakes, and rainbow iridescent microflakes. I used…

Ellagee Hard Cider

Press Sample Last polish I have to share for the July Polish Pickup! Now it’s time for Ellagee Hard Cider! 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…

Ellagee Throne Shippers Collection

Press Sample I have some more Ellagee multichromes on the blog to share, this time with a little Game of Thrones inspiration thrown in! This is the Ellagee Throne Shippers Collection! All 4 of these shades are stunning multichromes with additional “sparks” added for a little more depth. They are inspired by Game Of Thrones (YAY!) which Laura (Ellagee) is a fan of. Each shade is inspired by some of Laura’s favorite couples that she’s hoping to see get together in the upcoming Season 7 of Game of Thrones. When Laura first mentioned the collection concept, I thought it was a really good one! Nick and I watch Game of Thrones, so we were able to discuss the concept while I worked on swatches (he actually agrees with the pairings too!) Let’s jump into the polish and lemme know what you think! Daenorah This polish represents Daenarys Stormborn and Jorah Mormont. We all know…

Ellagee Fireside Wine & Rhapsody In Blue

Press Sample I have several posts to type up this week, but I’ve been slacking a tad (I’m not behind though!) because there are some super exciting things in the works over here and some big changes coming up. I can’t fully get into details yet, but I will need to do a massive blog destash to fund the excitement and costs. It will take some time, I need to contact makers to see if they are okay with me selling samples they sent over the years. Nick spent Saturday building a storefront on my blog (it’s hidden at the moment) so the sale can actually take place on my blog directly. You’ll be able to throw polish in a cart and checkout right here. So basically watch for that if you wish to. I have over 11,000 polishes and will be attempting to destash nearly half of that, if…
