Polish Pickup July 2020 | Rewind For Maker’s Shops

Press Samples for the Polish Pickup
July 2020 | Rewind For Maker’s Shops

Here we are again with my final Polish Pickup July 2020 Rewind post, and this time we are going to look at offerings I have previously reviewed for the maker’s shops.

There will be less reviews highlighted in this post because non polish items are not exclusive to the Polish Pickup shop. So several items you have seen like Acetone Antidote, waxes, jewelry, cosmetics, etc can be found throughout the year in the various shops. Only polish items are actually exclusive. Have a non polish item you love or missed out on? Contact the maker and find out if they will bring it back at all. If they have the supplies, you may be in luck! It’s not a guarantee, but you can always email them and ask.

Since this post will focus on the polish, and there isn’t one clear cut spot to grab them, I will be diving back into old reviews to find my notes about each one. If the makers have any specials I know about, I will also include those. Some will have a percentage off sales, others will have reduced shipping. Please keep in mind that not all could offer a discount.

There are also a few stockists that are hosting for some brands. Within each review I will try to add a link for where you can find a particular polish and the date range they will be available, as well as any discount they might be offering. I can only do this for brands that offered up this information. I honestly don’t have the time to chase down each maker to find out, however – if you head to their fan groups – you can probably find the information for the polishes you are interested in.

If I have the link to where it’s being sold – I will hyperlink it where I put “Available: x dates” and you can click to go to the shop.

Most info for this post as far as links and information came from a spreadsheet created by Bri Cousineau in the Polish Pickup group. To view the spreadsheet – head HERE

All of these photos are pulled from past posts. I only redid 6 of them for reformulated polishes, or because I didn’t receive it the first time around and they wanted to be included.

Alter Ego | Magical Amber (Thermal)

Inspiration:” Amber Boosts optimism, facilitates self-expression, attracts friends and helps to find partner in life, brings victory. Amber bead on a red thread repels witches and malicious spirits. It was believed in the old days that there is no such ailment the Amber would not heal. The Amber was taken internally to help with metabolism deficiencies, hearing problems, and stomach ailments. In Poland the Amber tincture is still considered an effective remedy for colds, throat and respiratory problems. The Amber powder is inhaled to bring relief from acute respiratory disease. Amber pieces are given to babies to chew when they have their first teeth appear. How to explain Amber’s healing powers? It turns out that Amber contains up to 8 weight percent of the amber acid, which has vitamin-like properties. By enhancing endocellular metabolism, the amber acid brings about general improvement of body condition, slows down ageing processes, and normalizes cardiac blood circulation. Protects from evil spells and an evil eye. Amber always was considered an anti-demonic amulet. It is also believed that an Amber bead, hidden in baby’s clothes, will counteract any malicious forces.” (September 2019 – Magic & Alchemy)
