Press Samples for March 2019
Polish Pickup | Album Covers

Where did February go? I know it’s a shorter month, but it flew by. I spent the last week sick, so this is going up a few days later than I planned. I’m starting to work on this on a Sunday night, but it most likely won’t be live until Monday night… but here’s the March 2019 Polish Pickup Album Covers post from me!

This month is a whopper. I have 66 items to share with you. 9 are part of Indie Pickup and 57 are for Polish Pickup. I won’t lie, this was a rough month. Not because of the amount of items I received, but because it’s a shorter month – and I was sick for 9 days. It’s still lingering, but I’m more functional.

Due to being sick, all thermals I had this month are only photographed in transition. I had a fever and none would stay in cold state long enough for photos, but you do see all transitions in each shot – so that works fine.

Since Polish Pickup and Indie Pickup is now a combined shop (The Pickups) I am doing one giant post vs 2 separate ones. 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.

1850 Artisan Polish | Lunar Eclipse

Inspiration: Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon

Description: Lunar Eclipse is a black (cold) to pale grey (warm) linear holographic with scattered holographic micro flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The first coat is on the sheer side, and the pale grey (warm) state is closer to clear. I bet this would work as a topper if you did 1 coat over a cream base in another shade to make it a black to whatever the undie color is. I haven’t tried it, but it’s definitely possible.

Price: $13.00 | No Cap

77 Nail Lacquer | It Was All Her, All Along

Inspiration: Liz Phair’s Girly – Sound To Guyville

Description: It Was All Her, All Along is a red leaning purple multichrome that shifts red to purple topink to orange to gold at extreme angles. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 85 Bottles

Alter Ego Body Care Products | Little Green Apple Wax Melt

Inspiration: The Temptations “Puzzle People” album, 1st song on side B is “Little Green Apples”

Description: Little Green Apple Wax Melt has a very light and sweet green apple scent. On dry sniff, you do have to get fairly close to smell the green apple. It’s not super strong. When melted though, it’s still on the lighter side – but the scent of green apple fills the room. I’d say the scent leans more into green apple candy like scent vs fresh green apples.

Ingredients: 100% soy wax, fragrance oil

Price: $5.00 | No Cap

Alter Ego Nail Enamel | In A Gadda Da Vida

Inspiration: The Iron Butterfly hit song in the 70s.

Cuticula | Timeless Top Coat in Cherry Red Lips

Inspiration: Taylor Swift ‘Red’ Album

Description: Timeless Top Coat is a high gloss top coat that is 5 Free. While it does dry on the faster side, it is not a typical quick dry top coat.

You can use it over nail art, but you have to be careful to float the brush over the design so the brush barely touches the nail.

Much like the Nail Nectar and Static Base – this has a lovely scent of cherries and champagne.

Price: $8.50 | No Cap

Dollish Polish | A Strange Day

Inspiration: …The Cure’s Pornography album & named after my favorite song from the same album

Description: A Strange Day is a dusty violet tinged mauve crelly base with red to gold shifting aurora shimmer, red and silver holo micro shreds and red to copper to orange ultrachrome chameleon flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

There is some texture due to all the flakes. May require 2 coats of top coat if you go beyond 2 coats of polish.

Price: $13.00 | No Cap

ellagee | Funhouse

Inspiration: Funhouse album cover, by P!nk

Description: Funhouse is a coral red (cold) to coloreless (warm) thermal and loaded with pale gold flakes and hot pink to gold shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

My photos pull the coral more orange, it’s actually not that orange in person and has more red.

Inspiration: Taproot, Our Long Road Home

Description: Hide The Sun is a teal green jelly base loaded wit silver holographic micro glitters and iridescent flakes that shift orange to gold to green. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Despite the flake content appearance, everything lays flat and there is no texture.

Ethereal Lacquer | Superposition

Inspiration: Young The Giant

Description: Superposition is a cobalt blue jelly base with red to green color shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This polish is on the sheerer side and does build up nicely, but it would also work nicely over a cobalt blue base if you want a bit more opaqueness.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 330 Bottles

Ever After Polish | Under The Iron Sea

Inspiration: Keane – Under The Iron Sea Album

Description: Under The Iron Sea is a deep navy linear holographic with blue shifting aurora shimmer and navy blue holographic hex glitters and micro flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Description: Parachutes is a gold to bronze to copper multichrome with magnetic multichrome flakes that shift gold to copper to red, as well as holographic microglitters.

I personally found the magnetic effect to be on the subtle side. It is more visible in person.

Description: Sweet Spanish Doll is a soft peachy beige crelly base with chameleon chrome flakes that show flashes of purple to blue to fuchsia, as well as iridescent flakes and blue to purple iridescent glitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade dries down matte naturally so you can also wear it that way!
