Can I just let everyone know that I’m just as bad at 6th grade math now as I was back in 1993? All I can really say is that I’m thankful for Google and that my son pays attention in math class. For a teacher who hates giving homework, she sure gives him a lot of it! Now, while my son does his 30 minutes of nightly reading, I thought I would sneak another October Polish Pickup shade post! Here is Pahlish Wild Rumpus!
I just got the Pahlish Holo-ween collection in too, and ugh. I’m dying over here. So many pretties and I don’t know where to start!
Okay first we’re going to go through my spiel on Polish Pickup for those not familiar with it!
Before I get into this lovely shade shown above, we’re going to talk about this new Facebook group and I’m going to describe it’s concept. The group is Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. It’s NOT a box though. I think when it formed that was the major misconception of it.
Now, I love polish boxes, however, some purchasers shared their frustration in only wanting 1 or 2 polishes from a box and needing to unload the polishes in the box they didn’t want. So essentially they were paying $40 and up for 1 or 2 polishes and hoping they could sell the polishes they weren’t interested in.
Polish Pickup is different. While the concept of picking themes and voting isn’t new, instead of buying the whole box, you can shop online for JUST the single polishes you want. There can be many indie makers involved with the theme, but you only have to pay for the exact polishes you wanted rather than 4-8 polishes you may not have been interested in.
Then every month the theme and makers change and you get a whole new set of polishes to pick and choose from. So while it has a box like feel (with the voting and themes) it doesn’t carry the box commitment.
This set of polishes will be available from October 6th at 11am EST through October 9th 11:59pm EST.
The October theme is ‘Monsters & Mythical Creatures’
Here is the Pahlish inspiration photo!
That photo takes me back!
Let’s see what Pahlish created for it!
Pahlish Wild Rumpus
Pahlish Wild Rumpus is a medium greyed out taupe crelly base laced with purple to gold shifting shimmer and a scattering of silver holographic flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
