Press Sample of the July 2019
Polish Pickup | Throwback 2019

This month has been super crazy with appointments and everything, but I’m finally getting this post up for the July 2019 Polish Pickup Throwback 2019 shop!

So I wasn’t going to dig through and find every polish I’ve previously done for Polish Pickup that was coming back. This is kind of my low-key month so I can take a little time off and decompress.

I went through and grabbed photos from previous posts that I’ve done that are back for July. There will be a whole separate post for the After Party polishes coming back as well. I almost did them in 1 post, but it would be too many photos and too confusing – so that will be posted later.

For full disclosure – I’m short on time, so I am straight copy/pasting info for this post. This is more a “What’s coming back!” style post and not a real review type post. There will be a giveaway for 5 VIP Passes and 5 PPU Gift Cards at the bottom though – so there’s that.

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.

Let’s do this.
