Well… I guess it’s that time again. This whole month of May threw me off with school ending and all the fun stuff that comes with it. It’s now time for the June 2019 Polish Pickup Weather themed post!
At the time of starting this post – I have 73 individual listings to share. My USPS Informed Delivery says I have 16 packages arriving tonight and another 12 tomorrow and 4 on Monday. It’s possible there’s a straggler in there, so if there is I will add it into this post once photos are done.
The theme this month is Weather! This is the theme I wanted to win when I saw the voting going on, so I was really excited about it. The makers did not disappoint, but the assortment I got does lean heavily in the blue/purple/green/grey category colorwise.
As usual, if there’s a particular polish you came to look at and don’t want to scroll through everything – hit CTRL + F if you are on desktop and search the brand name.
June’s Shop opens on June 7th and will be open for Wishlisting on June 2nd-ish.
