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.

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

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.

March 2019 Polish Pickup | Album Covers

And that’s all folks! Of course this is only about half of what’s available in the Polish Pickup/Indie Pickup shop. This month offers a ton of gorgeous shades and again, I’m loving the mix. In the early months of PPU it felt like a ton of purple variations, and the last few months it feels more leveled out.

Again, as far as thermals go, I usually show hot and cold states completely – but I had a fever through 80% of the swatch load, so it just wasn’t possible.

I know the collage shows 66 items, but 1 item showed up this morning as I was typing this, so 67 is the final count.

Where To Buy: Polish Pickup Shop

Shop Dates: March 1st at 11am EST through March 4th at 11:59pm EST

The Polish Pickup Shop is open for previews, so you can start loading up your wishlists! A few items still need to be added, but I think the majority of polishes and items I have are on the site and ready.

Hope everyone has fun this month!
