Press Samples from the Polish Pickup
February 2022 | 90’s TV

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.
Affiliate Links // Some Paid PR – Items that I Received Compensation for will be Noted in Reviews

Happy Sunday (possibly Monday when this goes live… depends on how many distractions I have) and the blizzard here has passed, so I can post without the worry of losing power (and my work.) Here’s a look at the Polish Pickup February 2022 shop, and the theme is 90’s TV!

Right now I have 71 items to share – but I am still expecting some. They were supposed to arrive yesterday – but the blizzard delayed mail delivery, so hopefully they will be here tomorrow.

For the fine details – for all photos shown – I used Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Peel Off Base, and for the glossy photos I did use a combination of the top coats including Vibrant Vinyls which was sent as PR this month, and Night Owl Lacquer’s Patience Not Required, as well as Anchor & Heart Sea Glass. I purchased the Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues and the top coats were sent as pr or as gifts.

I do use artificial lighting for my photos. I work during the day and weekend afternoons I’m with Nick and Jacob, so I do most swatching when the sun is setting or gone. My current setup uses GlamCor Pro LIghts and I use the Ultra X Model and this Daylight Company Duo Daylight Lamp (affiliate link).

My nails are not my natural nails – I’m using ENailCouture Full Coverage Gel Nail Tips in Active Almond shape.

Wishlisting opened today – so lets jump on in and take a look.

Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Music Television

Inspiration: It was a time of Daria, Road Rules, Celebrity Deathmatch, Loveline and *gasp* MUSIC TELEVISION! So in tribute to my teenage obsession, I pulled inspiration from the various bold and bright MTV logos of the 90’s. I hear you can still watch music videos, but if you can’t do it in 30 minute themed blocks, I don’t want it. 

Description: Music Television is an turquoise crelly base with peach to pink to purple shifting shimmer and brightly colored glitter in various finishes, sizes, and shapes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Baroness X | Hydromancy Top Coat

Inspiration: Inspired by the 90’s Liquid Television’s animated shorts on MTV

Description: Hydromancy is one of the top coats offered from Baroness X. This is the glossy top coat that has a gel like appearance and a slightly thicker consistency to kind of go along with that look. It isn’t “stringy” thick though, it still glides on with ease.

The thicker formula makes it really nice for glitters and makes it easy to “float” on for nail art.

This is not a quick dry top coat, however it does dry to the touch (for me) within 8-10 minutes, and fully within about 25.

Price: $9.00 | Cap: 300

Baroness X | Wet Shorts (Magnetic)

Inspiration: Inspired by the 90’s Liquid Television’s animated shorts on MTV

Paid Press Sample

Inspiration: Inspired by The Street Sharks animated series 

Description: Jawsome is a sheer blue to purple pastel multichrome with gold reflective glitter. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Description: Glisten & Glow brought their cuticle duo back in time to help out our winter nails.

Cuticle Remover is scented in strawberry. This smells like fresh strawberries but a tad sweeter.

Cuticle Oil is scented in watermelon. I love watermelon scent for this!

Glisten & Glow’s Cuticle Remover softens and removes excess cuticle as well as eponychium skin and comes in an easy to use twist-up pen style applicator.

Directions: Apply generously to the cuticle area and let sit for 60 seconds. Next, gently push back with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water.

These work incredibly well and I’ve primarily used them in my nail routine for over a year now.I generally get sets to review for PPU, but then I buy an additional set each time so I never run out

In the last photo I put a standard BIC ballpoint pen on top of the bag so you can get an idea of size. Product Size: 4″ tall x 10 1/2″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep

Hit the Bottle Polishes | Pigment Kit in Luxe

Inspiration:

Description: This is for a kit that will come with a black sticky stamping polish called Stuck on You, Luxe holo chrome pigment and a dual ended applicator (think eyeshadow applicator)

To use this set you would paint your base color and then apply a matte top coat. Once done, use the black sticky polish (Stuck on You) to stamp your selected design on. Wait 20-30 seconds, then gently apply pigment to stamping with applicator.

The pigment will not stick to the matte portion of nails which makes this a bit easier. Plus this way you can use the pigment without using the method that requires your stamper (which can make it permanently cloudy)

Once done, either use a water based top coat to protect the design, then the top coat of your choice. You can also skip the water based top coat and float your top coat of choice over, but it does run the risk of dulling the holo effect.

I chose to leave the background matte because I liked the look with the rose gold holo chrome pigment.

Price: $14.00 | Cap: 100

Hit the Bottle Polishes | Retro Patterns – 80’s & 90’s

Inspiration: Inspired by Geometric patterns from the 80’s and 90’s.

Price: $13.50 | Cap: None

KBShimmer | Hand & Body Scrub

Inspiration: Inspired by 90’s Fragrances

Description: KBShimmer’s sugar scrubs are good for all over the body or as a hand scrub, the sugar particles are medium grit so they do a good job getting dry spots on your body situated.

Cucumber Melon was one of the main body spray scents I remember for girls when I was in junior high and high school. I actually didn’t mind the scent – but everyone wore it so I stuck to Victoria Secret Enchanted Apple (I think) and Endless Love instead.

Now you barely smell it around, so I actually love it again (Cucumber Melon) and it doesn’t smell like anyone bathed in it this time around.

Cucumber Melon is a sweet blend of honeydew, watermelon and cucumber. It’s slightly sweet but also has this calming note from the cucumber. As soon as I opened the lid to this body scrub – I remembered the scent without an issue.

Lucky 13 Lacquer | Take Chances, Make Mistakes, Get Messy! (Quad Thermal & Glow In The Dark)

Inspiration: Inspired by The Magic School Bus

Description: Take Chances, Make Mistakes, Get Messy! is a quad thermal that goes orchid pink (hot) to periwinkle (warm) to midnight blue (chilly room temp) to eggplant purple (cold) and has teal to purple color shifting shimmer and gold to green color shifting crystal flakes. This also glows an aqua blue in the dark and comes with a clamshell of space themed silver holo glitters.

Two things:

1. This polish is thick. This is probably due to the thermal pigment, glow in the dark AND flakes all combined in one. I personally don’t mind thick – but for those of you who do – here’s your warning to get that thinner ready. However – this is important – it’s also freezing here (I believe it was 6 degrees out when I did this one) so it could very well have been the temp here that made it thick at this time. I still want to give the heads up so you know what you may experience.
2. I usually do the natural progression of thermals (tips being darker) but … it’s 6 degrees outside and about 60 inside. Natural wasn’t gonna happen. I mostly saw the midnight blue to purple transition (as seen with the glitters below)

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 120

Description: Churn, Baby Churn is inspired by the ice cream episode of Good Eats from season one. This is a maple walnut ice cream scented wax blend.

All the terms like Talk to the Hand, Whatever, etc. Dude was a big one too. Everything was dude. My notebook was dude. My lost pen? Dude. My mom? Dude.

Red Eyed Lacquer | Am I Spooky? Da Balmer

Inspiration: Inspired by Mulder from X-Files

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.

The February scent is a blend of pecan praline and pretzels.

The pecan praline scent is the most obvious, and while I didn’t place pretzels immediately – the salt was evident and it gives the sweet praline type scent a nice balance.

Price: $7.50 | Cap: 100

Inspiration: Inspired by Let’s Get Dangerous! is inspired by the one and only Darkwing Duck!

Description: Let’s Get Dangerous! is a juicy grape purple jelly base loaded with grey to green to magenta shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $10.50 | Cap: 150

The Soapy Chef | Isn’t that Special? Cuticle Scrub

Inspiration: Inspired by the iconic Saturday Night Live character, the Church Lady, played by Dana Carvey. “Well, Isn’t that special?” was her most famous line to say while scrunching up her face to the camera!

Description: Isn’t That Special? Cuticle Scrub is a scrub and balm combined and is super gentle. The sugar buffs away dead skin around the cuticles and nails, while the balm’s oils and butters melt into the skin and soften it at the same time. Simply rub the scrub into nails and cuticles in a circular motion then wash off excess with warm water.

This is a scent mix of ripe mango, papaya, watery melon, blackberry, dark plum, vanilla.

The scent reminds me of the bubblelicious gum that was blue. I think it was blueberry – which isn’t in the scent description – but it just triggered that memory of that particular 90’s gum. It smells amazing.

Price: $8.50 | Cap: None

Treo Lacquer | Some Kind of Prison

Inspiration: Inspired by My So Called Life, specially the quote: “Sometimes it seems like we’re all living in some kind of prison. And the crime is how much we hate ourselves.” I watched this show back in the 90s when I was an angsty teenager and it resonated with me so much. It delivered complexity and depth that I craved and rarely found on TV. It also sparked a huge crush on Claire Danes!

Description: Some Kind of Prison is a vampy maroon jelly base with violet to blue aurora shimmer and red, orange, green ultrachrome flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

If you have a strong VNL, it might show through this polish.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 160

Unicorn Magic Skincare | Beverly Hills 90210 Deluxe Acetone Additive

Inspiration: Inspired by the 90’s TV show Beverly Hills 90210

Description: The use of acetone can wreak havoc on nails and surrounding skin, leaving those unsightly dry white marks. The use of acetone additive will help diminish the stripping of natural oils from your hands & nails, helping them look healthy and beautiful. Contains skin loving oils such as jojoba & argan oil for maximum benefit.

This acetone additive is in a plastic bottle that you squeeze to dispense. Shake before using, add the desired amount and give the acetone a shake then use.

I do suggest adding a little, testing it to see if it needs more, then add more. I usually add 1/4-1/3 of the 1 ounce bottle to a 10 oz amount of remover (I used zoya remove+)

The February scent is Beverly Hills 90210 – an alluring floral bouquet of gardenia, tuberose, sweet vanilla and exotic musk.

To my nose this is a sweet and slightly musky floral mix. I really get the gardenia coming out which can be powerful, but the sweeter vanilla helps to soften it a bit. You do need to like florals for this one because it packs a punch.

Price: $5.50 | Cap: 150

Unicorn Magic Skincare | Strawberry Glazed Donuts Hand Lotion

Inspiration: Inspired by The Simpsons

Description:  Deluxe Triple Butter Hand Lotion is a thick and rich, decadent hand cream, made to sooth, moisturize and protect your delicate skin. Handcrafted with quality ingredients many of which are organic, in small batches.

This stuff is a staple and a little goes a long way! Their hand lotion has helped me through the winter!

The February scent is: Strawberry glazed donuts – the aroma of sweet buttery vanilla batter topped with freshly sliced strawberries.

My nose picks up a strawberry buttercream like scent. My aunt makes a frosting that smells a lot like this with extra bits of fresh strawberry mixed in. It’s divine.

Price: $8.50 | Cap: 200

Vapid Wax | Crimson Glow

Inspiration: Inspired by My So-Called Life

Description: This month’s Vapid Wax scent is a mix of watermelon and cherries. It’s a nice fruity concoction that’s actually on the soothing side. It’s created with the scent of a nostalgic temporary hair color in mind.

My nose picks up a mild blend of watermelon and cherry – but it’s not super fruity somehow. It has a mellow note that I can’t quite place. It’s not vanilla – but it’s along that vein to tone down the tartness of the cherries and strong watermelon vibe.

This wax also has a lot of shimmer in it so the melt effect is beautiful.

Price: $6.00 | Cap: 70

Vibrant Vinyls | All That Scented Double Bond Base Coat

Inspiration: Inspired by Orange Soda
“Who loves orange soda?”
“Kel loves orange soda!”
An ‘All That’ favorite of mine is the skits where Kel is drinking orange soda. He’s absolutely obsessed and this scent smells just like that fizzy orange drink

Description: Double Bond is a ridge filling base coat and sticky base coat in 1. Best of both worlds. I also sometimes like wearing it alone cause it gives a healthy, sheer, milky look to the nails.

The February scent is orange soda, and its a mix of California oranges, Brazilian orange peel, lemon zest, Japanese grapefruit on a vanilla background.

This is a lighter scented product and I can smell the oranges, but it’s not overpowering.

Price: $8.00 | Cap: None

Vibrant Vinyls | All That Scented Fast & Hard Top Coat

Inspiration: Inspired by Orange Soda
“Who loves orange soda?”
“Kel loves orange soda!”
An ‘All That’ favorite of mine is the skits where Kel is drinking orange soda. He’s absolutely obsessed and this scent smells just like that fizzy orange drink

Description: Fast & Hard is a super glossy quick dry top coat that can be applied over wet polish without issue. It also works over stamping, just make sure you float the top coat!

The February scent is orange soda, and its a mix of California oranges, Brazilian orange peel, lemon zest, Japanese grapefruit on a vanilla background.

This is a lighter scented product and I can smell the oranges, but it’s not overpowering.

Price: $8.00 | Cap: None

Polished by Days, bluebird and colores de carol are my top picks this month.

Also, I love the background print(?) you used on the non polish items. It has all the best shows!

“The blue is calling to me” (Game of Thrones open to the air prison cell). Krisable and Cuticula are calling so I must answer (even though I have a bunch of similar blues, they’re not the same )

That cuticula tho

Reply
Janie Hotchkiss February 2, 2022 - 9:29 pm

BILL! BILL! BILL! might be a must since it reminds me of a deep navy galaxy polish that finally died on me! :.-/ ;-)

If I ever see a true, nonflaked gunmetal “armor” polish that shifts undertone based on lighting and angle, that’ll be a must. Had one once, but the company is long defunct.

There are so many good ones! But I’m really excited about I Drink Coffee Like A Gilmore (despite being a BtVS fiend), because a good warm brown like that is yummy

It is so hard to narrow down my wishlist! I keep adding instead. One of my top picks is Hunkules, but all of the reflective glitters are calling me. I also have a question-what is vnl? In that “some kind of prison” you mentioned vnl might show through.

Reply
Lisa Heath February 3, 2022 - 6:15 am

VNL is Visible Nail Line. So when people have more opaque nail tips – some sheerer polishes might show that.

I think I’m going to snag a pair — or two — of the Nail Artisan Cosmetics : Wonders At The Wormhole earrings. They are so cute and would look amazing in my helix piercing and second hole.

I’m dying for the Vanessa Molina “Sabrina” polish! I swooned when I saw the first swatches of that one. You’re also the first swatcher I’ve seen for SHP this month, so thank you for that (plus all of the other gorgeous swatches!) This is a hard month to pare down the wishlist, for sure.

Reply
Cat February 3, 2022 - 8:18 am

There are so many good ones! The ones that stand out to me most are the ones inspired by Sabrina the Teenage Witch (“She’s a What?” and a purple thermal that I didn’t see here). I’ve never ordered from Polish Pickup before and hope to place my first order tomorrow!

I’m also super excited for all the reflective polishes that have been appearing lately! I’ve been trying to limit my new purchases to “things I don’t have anything else like” instead of just buying more and more reds (my fav), and reflective polishes fit that bill.
