Polish Pickup December 2023 | Maker’s Choice

Disclosure: I am a paid employee for Polish Pickup. While this post is not sponsored, I do have a relationship with the hosting collaboration shop.

Here it is… the final post for Polish Pickup 2023! For December our theme is Maker’s Choice and I have several offerings to share!

Okay so Maker’s Choice is pretty much the new set theme for December. In general – December is a slightly more low key month and several makers take the month off from Polish Pickup to focus on Black Friday sales and such. It just made more sense to give them more creative freedom for the final month of the year.

As usual – you can check it all out on my YouTube channel – I swatch each polish, show their special effect (if any) and sort of demo each product so you can see the consistency or how it is used

For the fine details – for all photos shown – I used Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Peel Off Base, and for the glossy photos I did Monarch Lacquer Hi-Def Shine Top coat (sent as PR and I’ve also purchased).  For all textured polishes, I did use Glisten & Glow Glitter Grabber (PR) and Monarch Lacquer top coat over it. For matte photos I used Anchor & Heart Lacquer Sea Glass (Gifted and Purchased by me)

For my lighting set up I use artificial lighting due to my day job, my set up involves 2 Neatfi XL Lamps from Amazon (affiliate link) as well as this Daylight Company Duo Daylight Lamp (affiliate link).

For my nails – they are Apres Gel X nails throughout this post, and the style is Extra Short Stiletto.

Let’s get going…

DA-BALMER BY RED EYED LACQUER | BOTTOMS UP (PAID PR)

Inspiration:  My 5th Indieversary

Description: Da Balm-er is a cross between a balm and body butter. It’s creamy like a body butter but has a more emollient feel like a balm would. It’s an intensive treatment you can use anywhere (I love it on cuticles of course) but a little goes a long way. If you use too much – it will feel very oily (like a balm would) so start with a little and build up if you need more.

Bottoms Up is a blend of citrus and cherry and it’s such a bright and fruity scent! I absolutely love it.

White Christmas – peppermint swirls through bright winter citrus with leafy mistletoe, reminiscent of freshly fallen snow days.

This is winter/holidays in a jar. It’s not a super strong fragrance, but that peppermint bite is perfection.

Honestly, my #1 pick is the octopus cat toy. My cats will love it! I’ll probably get two. I’m also looking at Rogue Lacquer, Colores de Carol, and Noodles.

#1 is hands down Garden Path Lacquers Threads your Friends Wove Together, although the Watcha offering is also calling to me.

My #1 is Party Down by Red Eyed Lacquer. I also love the Cuticula Away We Glow! I’m trying to keep it to three this month, so I’m debating between DRK Pure Joy and Lemming Euphoric Embers. Actually, the Kathleen and Co is my fave, but it’s a near perfect dupe for LynBDesigns Onism, which I already own.

Reply

Kathleen & Co. and Rogue.

Lumen and DRK Nails are tied as my #1’s. They captured my glittery, glowy-loving heart! The Christmas ones like Hearts & Promises and By Dany Vianna are also super cute. Oh, and Atomic…whew! what a stunning red.

The Monarch Snowball Frenzy is at the top of my list, especially after seeing it on black. I had a similar polish and destroyed it with acetone by mistake.
Atomic polish, Sassy Cats, Whatcha, Lucky 13 because snowflake goodness!
Thank you again for all the swatches! You do a wonderful job!
