I have several of the Polish Pick Up shades to share with you over the next couple of days. First up we have Ellagee Dancing With The Wind!
In case you missed a previous post about the Polish Pickup, here is a recap explaining the group.
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.
The first set of polishes will be available from April 7th until April 10th, and at the end of this post I will have the list of April makers (as well as links to any April Polish Pickup post I’ve done) so you can see what to expect.
The theme for April is “Famous Works Of Art”
Laura from Ellagee created Dancing With The Wind which was inspired by Wheatfield With Cypresses by Van Gogh.
Now let’s take a look at Ellagee’s creation!
Ellagee Dancing With The Wind
Ellagee Dancing With The Wind is a silvery lavender tightly scattered holographic with pink to blue shifting shimmer and iridescent shifting flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
The holo effect in this shade is breathtaking. It has the more fluid looking holo vs the small particles (if that makes any sense to anyone but me) and reminds me of some of the AEngland’s holographic shades.
The shimmer shift was hard to capture, but one of the photos closeup got it a bit. You can also see it in the bottle shot. Absolutely beautiful!
Look at that shift!
