July 2019 Polish Pickup | After Party

Press Sample of July 2019Polish Pickup | After Party We are back for part 2 of the July 2019 Polish Pickup – this time it’s the After Party! Last week we looked at the Flashback/Throwback – which allowed makers to bring back a previous shade in the Polish Pickup shop. The After Party allows each maker to bring yet another polish/product back and host it within their own stores. Most of these polishes have already been on my blog, so this is less of a review and more of a “let’s see what else is coming back!” post. I will be copy/pasting a lot of the info rather than trying to reaching into the depths of my mommy brain and trying to remember everything. The majority of these are 3 thin coats in application. It’s been a long time for some – but I generally do 3 coats. I never…

July 2019 Polish Pickup | Throwback 2019

Press Sample of the July 2019Polish Pickup | Throwback 2019 This month has been super crazy with appointments and everything, but I’m finally getting this post up for the July 2019 Polish Pickup Throwback 2019 shop! So I wasn’t going to dig through and find every polish I’ve previously done for Polish Pickup that was coming back. This is kind of my low-key month so I can take a little time off and decompress. I went through and grabbed photos from previous posts that I’ve done that are back for July. There will be a whole separate post for the After Party polishes coming back as well. I almost did them in 1 post, but it would be too many photos and too confusing – so that will be posted later. For full disclosure – I’m short on time, so I am straight copy/pasting info for this post. This is…

June 2019 Polish Pickup | Weather

Press Sample of the June 2019Polish Pickup | Weather Well… I guess it’s that time again. This whole month of May threw me off with school ending and all the fun stuff that comes with it. It’s now time for the June 2019 Polish Pickup Weather themed post! At the time of starting this post – I have 73 individual listings to share. My USPS Informed Delivery says I have 16 packages arriving tonight and another 12 tomorrow and 4 on Monday. It’s possible there’s a straggler in there, so if there is I will add it into this post once photos are done. The theme this month is Weather! This is the theme I wanted to win when I saw the voting going on, so I was really excited about it. The makers did not disappoint, but the assortment I got does lean heavily in the blue/purple/green/grey category colorwise.…

May 2019 Polish Pickup | 1980’s

Press Sample of the May 2019Polish Pickup 1980’s This is my biggest Polish/Indie Pickup review to date, minus the times I was the official Blogger of the Month. Right now I have 71 items to share for the May 2019 Polish Pickup 1980’s theme! My USPS console just showed that I have 9 packages being delivered tomorrow – and I think 1 more PPU item is in there (that I know of) so I’ll be adding what that one (Delush Polish) tomorrow when it arrives. My tax season ended April 15th, so most of these photos took place between the 16th and this morning. Luckily from now on I should be a little more ahead without the extra work hours and days. Okay so the theme this month is 1980’s! I was born in 1982 and even though I have momnesia and my memory isn’t as sharp since I had…

April 2019 Polish Pickup | Famous Works of Art

Press Samples for April 2019Polish Pickup | Famous Works of Art This month has been an incredibly stressful month, and I almost thought this April 2019 Polish Pickup Famous Works of Art post would be right up against the deadline, but somehow I pulled through. Of the 18 tax seasons I’ve been through (12 with my current employer) this has been the most stressful. This isn’t entirely due to tax season itself though. With Polish Pickup, Polish Con coming up, Tax Season and 7th grade projects that were due this month, I was totally freaking out that things would slip. So far though, I’ve been working lots of overtime (only Sundays off so far this month..) we’ve successfully completed 5 large projects for Jacob, and while my swatching is a bit behind – overall I am doing an okay job of keeping up with that. 2 more weeks though and…
