January 2019 Polish Pickup | Mythology

Press Sample of the January 2019
Polish Pickup | Mythology

It’s officially been 1 year since my debut as Blogger of the Month for the Polish Pickup – and in the year since, I’ve had the opportunity of working with so many incredible makers and have consistently had the privilege of showing 35+ Polish Pickup shades each month.

It’s been an incredible year, and with the beginning of 2019 – I can only hope to continue that. Today I have the January 2019 Polish Pickup Mythology to share!

I have 47 products to share today and I do believe this is everything. As far as I am aware, nothing is in transit as the final 3 arrived last night.

Fair warning, this will be photo heavy. 47 polishes, about 4-6 photos per polish. If you are here to look at a specific shade (and you’re on desktop) go ahead and hit CTRL + F and search the brand name to go to the specific shade. Otherwise, settle in for a photo heavy post.

The January 2019 Polish Pickup shop will run from January 4th until the 7th. Indie Pickup will be running at the same time and you’ll have the ability to buy from both shops in one easy fell swoop! My Indie Pickup Shop post will be up tomorrow!

Let’s get this party started!

With the base and shimmers – it comes across more blurple in the cold state. It’s also freezing here and I couldn’t capture the periwinkle state in full. My hands are ice cold and no matter what I tried I couldn’t hold it long enough for photos.

I used 1 coat over a navy blue creme (OPI March In Uniform) for these photos.

While the base is tinted, it’s so sheer that you can easily use it over any color.
