Ready for another October Polish Pickup shade? Next up we have Great Lakes Lacquer O’Rlyeh?
Another shifty stunner!
I think there are 48 indie makers involved this month (give or take a couple if my math is wrong, it usually is) , 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.
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 October 6th at 11am EST through October 9th 11:59pm EST.
The October theme is ‘Monsters & Mythical Creatures’
Here is the Great Lakes Lacquer inspiration photo!
I’m really loving the inspiration photos used for this month’s theme!
Let’s take a look at the polish!
Great Lakes Lacquer O’Rlyeh?
Great Lakes Lacquer O’Rlyeh? is a deep moss green linear holographic filled with multichrome shimmer that shows shifts of red, gold, green and at certain lighting you can see flashes of purple. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
