I’m hoping to get 2 Polish Pickup posts up a day at least leading up to release! This month has some spectacular shades in it, and I think I read somewhere that July has the most makers participating to date! Next up I have Contrary Polish Sweet Poison!
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.
You following me still?
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 July 7th to July 10th, and at the end of this post I will have the list of July makers so you can see what to expect.
July’s theme is ‘Cocktails & Mocktails’
Here is the Contrary Polish inspiration photo!
Doesn’t that look delicious?
Contrary Polish Sweet Poison
Sweet Poison is a medium blue leaning green creme based linear holographic with aqua shimmer and sapphire blue microflakes. The holo is very subtle in this polish and adds little flecks of rainbow sparks here and there, but the shimmer is actually the star in this base.
I used 2 easy coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
