Press Sample of July 2019
Polish Pickup | After Party

We are back for part 2 of the July 2019 Polish Pickup – this time it’s the After Party!

Last week we looked at the Flashback/Throwback – which allowed makers to bring back a previous shade in the Polish Pickup shop. The After Party allows each maker to bring yet another polish/product back and host it within their own stores.

Most of these polishes have already been on my blog, so this is less of a review and more of a “let’s see what else is coming back!” post. I will be copy/pasting a lot of the info rather than trying to reaching into the depths of my mommy brain and trying to remember everything.

The majority of these are 3 thin coats in application. It’s been a long time for some – but I generally do 3 coats. I never do 4 coats for Polish Pickup – so expect each polish to be 2-3 coats max.

Ready? Let’s do it.

Baroness X | Acetone Antidote in Cap’n Crunch Berries

This acetone additive has glycerin and jojoba oil to help protect and moisturize your nails, skin, and cuticles during polish removal. The added emulsifier will ensure your mix actually stays mixed after shaking once prior to each use. Most acetone additives do not have this ingredient which causes you to have to shake the acetone bottle at least a few times during polish removal.

Polish Pickup After Party Scents:

  • Almond Orange Spire – this scent is reminiscent of a blend of orange and almond liqueur. (it’s on the fruity, sweet side; but a grown up version, not really a candy or straight fruit scent)
  • Cap’n Crunch Berries – just like the cereal
  • Cherry Ice Cream Smile – a creamy scent mix of cherry ice cream with a bit of pie crumble topping. There’s NO fake medicine-like, pungent, cherry smell here…this smells just like actual cherry ice cream.
  • Sharks w/ Frickin’ Laser Beams – a saltwater marine based scent with a mix of the following added: iced tea, coconut water, green apple, lemon and kiwi

$3.75 | Click Here To Buy | Special: Orders $35+ will receive a free 8ml of either Liquid Crystal Top Coat or Riveted Base Coat and the PPU polish is discounted to help cover the shipping.

BLUSH Lacquers | Electric Bloom

Shown is the original Electric Bloom – it has been reformulated as a 2.0 version.

Electric Bloom 2.0 (2019) is a completely reformulated version of our May 2017 “Science” themed Polish Pickup shade, Electric Bloom. We are unable to bring back the original polish due to fading issues with the neon pigment and because the original shimmer pigment used in this polish is no longer available. While Electric Bloom 2.0 (2019) is not an exact match to the original, it is very, very, close and equally as beautiful! The main differences are that the new version is a little darker and less “neon” (though still quite “bright” in color). The new shimmer is a slightly larger particle size and has a subtle purple shift. We describe Electric Bloom 2.0 (2019) as a magenta based polish with a blue-purple shifting shimmer and holo flakes.

KBShimmer | If You Want My Bodice

Some women have a dirty little secret: every night they escape to a world where a handsome man lusts after their busty figure, and not even a laced up bodice could still the passion that burned between them. At the end of the day, when that beloved book with racy cover gets placed in the nightstand, the pages worn and dog-eared, those women thank Harlequin and Silhouette for the tales of intrigue, romance, and of course, lust. Based on the cover of a “bodice ripper” romance, KBShimmer’s If You Want My Bodice is full of lusty goodness. This shifty polish starts with a blend of multichrome pigments that in indirect light, help this polish travel from a cool minty teal to a deep lavender. Flecks of unicorn flakes shift in a rainbow of colors that dance among the colorful base. In brighter light, micro holo flakes sparkle, while deeper hues of magenta and blue come out to play.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer | Your Name Belongs to Me Now 2.0

Inspired by Yubaba (also from “Spirited Away”) and her name-stealing ways, this shade is a navy blue crelly that suspends red/green shifting shimmer, rust/red/green shifting multichrome pigment, and holographic flakies. Please note that due to pigment changes at the manufacturing level, the 2.0 version of this polish is visibly different from the original in several ways. The new shifting pigment causes the base to lean a darker shade of navy, but there is definitely more multichrome shift!

July 2019 Polish Pickup | After Party

There we have it! This post was compiled by readily available information I could find, or that was provided by each maker to me directly. I may have missed some that I did if I was unaware it was coming back.

I did create a spreadsheet with all returning polishes, as well as links to each shop – you can find it HERE.

If any info has changed, or was not submitted – then I apologize if it’s not 100% correct. Most of it should be though.

Most of these are available from July 9th through the 31st. If it’s a different date, I tried to notate that under each one.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the July Throwback/Flashback as well as Afterparty!

  1. The amount of work you put into this is amazing. I wish I’d kept a spreadsheet of what I’ve bought already.

  2. Thanks for the summary Lisa! The spreadsheet link appears to be broken?
