Jacob is getting ready for a party, so I thought I’d bang out another Polish Pickup post while he’s doing that. We’re going to take a look at Contrary Polish The Juice Fiend!
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 November 3rd at 11am EST through November 6th at 11:59pm EST.
The November theme is ‘Fandoms’ so we’re going to see a large variety of fandoms across the board. Contrary Polish picked Buster from Arrested Development
Here is the Contrary Polish inspiration photo!
Let’s take a look at this gorgeous polish!
Contrary Polish The Juice Fiend
Contrary Polish The Juice Fiend is a red toned grape crelly base packed with multichrome pigments to shift from bright purple to a blue to pinkish red, multichrome flakes that shift blue to purple to red to gold and scattered holographic sparkle. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
