Eep! It’s June 1st already?! Where is the time going? I still have 3 shades for the June Polish Pickup Shop to share and they launch tomorrow! Looks like all of today’s posts will be dedicated to the June Polish Pickup!
First up today I have Fair Maiden Polish Ready For This Jelly!
I’m going to go over what the Polish Pickup is for those joining us this month:
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 June 2nd to June 5th, and at the end of this post I will have the list of June makers so you can see what to expect.
June’s theme is ‘Under The Sea’
Here is the Fair Maiden Polish inspiration photo!
