That’s right, I’m back with another Polish Pickup shade! This time we’ll take a look at Girly Bits Glass Scale Dragon!
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”
(sorry if this is super repetitive to a few of you, but it’s just in case someone hasn’t seen the explanation!)
Pam from Girly Bits created Glass Scale Dragon was inspired by the mosaic dragon sculpture by Gaudi at Park Guell in Barcelona.
Now let’s take a look at Girly Bit’s creation!
Girly Bits Glass Scale Dragon
Glass Scale Dragon is an aquatic blue scattered holo, with a mixture of blue and silver holo, bronze, red, blue and violet flakes, and blue and violet shimmer.
I used 2 coats of Glass Scale Dragon and 1 coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze top coat. If you have a thinner top coat, you might need 2 coats to completely smooth this polish due to all the gorgeous microglitters and flakes. It’s mildly textured otherwise.
