Ready for the final shade I have for the August 2017 Polish Pickup? Remember, you can check out the links at the bottom of my post to see all 7 shades I covered this month! Last up we have DIFFERENT dimension Dorothy Dandridge!

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 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 August 4th at 11am until August 7th, and at the end of this post I will have the list of August makers so you can see what to expect.

The August theme is ‘Old Hollywood’

Here is the DIFFERENT dimension inspiration photo!

Dorothy Dandridge was an actress, singer and dancer and was best known for being the first African-American actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the 1954 film Carmen Jones.

DIFFERENT dimension Dorothy Dandridge

Dorothy Dandridge is a black jelly base with a nice scattering of silver holographic micro flecks. The flecks added are the perfect amount so you know they are there, but it’s not overcrowding the nail. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
