It’s that time of month again and it’s been another doozy. I am prepping to do another blog sale (which I planned on having up today but it’s being delayed another day or two, sorry!) so if there are older PPU shades I’ve featured, you might find them in that post. I do have a lot of stuff to show you for the Polish Pickup May 2021 Shop, and this months theme is Guilty Pleasures!

Remember – giveaway is at the bottom of the post!

This month I have 109 items to share. I am 99% sure everything is here, but if there are any stragglers – I’ll pop them in when they arrive.

This month is all about Guilty Pleasures. I am definitely someone who doesn’t feel guilty about what I find enjoyable, however – Guilty Pleasures was always a phrase for less popular or hidden things. Because of school and working 2 jobs in my teen years through to 22ish – I missed a lot of tv shows and movies that were popular back then – so a guilty pleasure of mine to this day would be watching those. Even the super cheeseball ones like Dawson’s Creek. Aside from that, reading is a big guilty pleasure of mine.

If people ask though – I feel no guilt in saying it. I like what I like and that’s how it’s gonna be. And I don’t care what other people find joy in, there’s no shame in that as long as it isn’t hurting anyone or against the law.

First things first – I’ve said this before but I’m repeating it. My nails aren’t “mine” for this entire post. I had a bad break in January before starting on PPU swatching, and I broke out the Kiara Sky Gelly Tips kit in Short Coffin. I did do a full post on those, so click the wording if you want to see. So yes, my nails look different because they are for now. I also am really enjoying the tips so I don’t know how long they will be on, but they are clear and don’t alter anything – so … I’m enjoying it!

For the fine details – for all photos shown – I used Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Peel Off BaseSweet & Sour Lacquer Gloss Sauce (except for when I used Vibrant Vinyls and Cuticula), and Sweet & Sour Lacquer Secret Matte Sauce. I purchased the Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues and Sweet & Sour Lacquer Secret Matte Sauce, Sweet & Sour Lacquer gifted me their Gloss Sauce.

I do use artificial lighting for my photos. I get the most done at night, so I swatch a lot at night. My current setup uses GlamCor Pro LIghts and I use the Ultra X Model and this Daylight Company Duo Daylight Lamp (affiliate link).

This is an EXTREMELY photo heavy post. If there is something specific you are looking for – on desktop hit CTRL + F and type what you are searching for. Otherwise, enjoy the long scroll down the page, and of course the giveaway at the end.

The May shop will be open May 7th – May 10th and wishlisting opens tomorrow.

Let’s jump in.

Acetone Additive | Alter Ego Body Care Products

Inspiration: Inspiration was: “Thinking of someone who claims to eat healthy, sneers at people who do not, but then sneak a hot dog when no one is looking! I found this unique hot dog fragrance oil last year and have been waiting for the opportunity to offer it. It came from Australia and took 2 months to get here, this is why such a low cap on it.”

Description: A pair of mini acetone additives, 8.5 ml each, 1 scented in hot dog fragrance oil and 1 in bread scented fragrance oil. That’s right – hot dog and bread scented acetone additive duo. If you really love these scents or want to give a good gag gift – this is it

Inspiration:Inspired by thinking of someone who claims to eat healthy, sneers at people who do not, but then sneak a hot dog when no one is looking!

Acetone Antidote by Baroness X | Strawberry Jelly Donut

Description: This month’s Acetone Antidote scent is Strawberry Jelly Donut and it smells exactly like the real thing. The fruit note really makes this bakery scent very additctive.

Acetone Antidote is an additive for your acetone to protect your skin from the harshness of acetone. It contains glycerin and jojoba oil to help protect and moisturize your nails, skin, and cuticles during polish removal. Plus, no more ashy, dry skin! Simply shake up the vial and pour into your polish remover. I generally pour a full vial into a 10 oz pump bottle, but I recommend shaking it and pouring half in and adding more if you feel you need more.

I’ll be buying backups of this scent, I already used all of mine, and it was delicious smelling!

Price: $4.25 | Cap: No Cap

Baroness X | Melon Crush (Fluid Art)

Inspiration: Inspired by noshing on watermelon and cantaloupe on a hot summer day.

Description: Melon Crush is a neon watermelon pink fluid art polish with lime green to yellow to orange shifting shimmer.  I used this polish alone in 3 thin coats, as well as with black for a fluid art look.

First I needed to make a decal. I recommend a silicon mat to do this, I personally use this one (affiliate link) but you can find them cheaper – I just like the size and having 4 to use.

The method that works best for me is to drop the polishes on top of each other a couple drips at a time (similar to water marbling without the water) so I did 3 drops of Evelyn, 3 drops of Sailing and Sight Seeing, 3 drops of 90’s blues, rinse and repeat until I had a nice little blob piled on itself in the center of the mat. Then I picked the mat up and just carefully moved it around to get the blob to warp and stretch and flatten out.

Once I saw the desired cells and spread of the polish, I set it aside for about 15 hours to dry (can take less, I went just waited 15) and then I cut out the desired size, painted my nails with a sticky base and applied the cut out decals. Then I manipulates and sealed them in with a cotton swab dipped in polish remover. I used an orange stick to help cut off any extra I didn’t need.

The base is tinted orange, but it doesn’t show on the nail. I also didn’t use it long enough (or on my real nails) to speak for the claims. But as a base coat – I did avoid staining while using it.

By Vanessa Molina | Sprinkled Guilty (Magnetic)

Description: That’s My Rose Jam Wet Skin Moisturizer is a body conditioner that you apply after your bath or shower to lock in moisture. It’s a thick lotion consistency that works well on wet skin. You can apply and lightly rinse, or apply and then pat dry with a towel.

It is a stronger scented product – so you don’t need fragrance and it lasts hours. My skin felt super soft after using it as well! It’s fabulous and I want more in a variety of scents

Scented in a dupe of Rose Jam from Lush: Pink peonies and red roses in full bloom, strawberry jam, apples, and a hint of citrus and vanilla.

Inspiration: Inspired by the guilty pleasure of constantly wearing lip products in quarantine/working from home, even though no one sees you.

Description: This gloss was formulated to leave your lips silky smooth and not sticky. Your hair won’t stick to it and cause tangles, which is one of the things many people want to avoid in a lip gloss.

This felt really nice and moisturizing on. I’m usually not a gloss person, but since this one isn’t sticky – I can wear it. The color is sheer and is a “my lips but better” type neutral shade.

Unscented and unflavored too!

Price: $5.50 | Cap: 47

Glisten & Glow | Glitter Grabber

Inspiration:

Description: Glitter Grabber gets applied after any glitter or flakie dense manicure is done and it’s fully dry and before your top coat. It aids in creating a smoother surface for your top coat or matte top coat all while “grabbing” that extra texture.

It works by filling in all the nooks and crannies without “sinking” in like top coat usually does.

Apply a coat of this and then top coat over it for a smooth finish.

Price: $8.00 | Cap: none

Glisten & Glow | Purple Rose

Inspiration: Purple Roses have been a long-standing guilty pleasure in my family for many years. My grandmother would buy herself one purple rose every month just to brighten her day! Her favorite color was purple and she just loved how unique and special they were. When she passed in May of 2006, we adorned her coffin with them. Yearly on the anniversary of her death all of the women in my family get a purple rose in her honor on that day.

Description: Purple Rose is one of those shades that morphs a tad when top coat is added. When applied, it’s a medium purple with a strong silver linear holo and blue flame. When top coat is added, it morphs to a deepened, but still vibrant purple with blue flame.

To preserve the linear and still top coat – a thin coat of water based top coat and then top coat will do that. Or enjoy the deepened, vibrant purple!

Price: $12.50 | Cap: None

Price: $8.75 | Cap: 330

Hit the Bottle Polishes | Keepin’ it Peel

Inspiration:

Description: So these are older photos – but I have used and loved this product (so much I used my entire bottle)

If you’ve used UNT before, Hit The Bottle Keepin’ It Peel feels like a thicker version of UNT so only 1 coat is required. It applies clear and takes approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds to fully dry for me, a little more in colder temps. Once dry, apply polish and top coat (remember to wrap your nails and extend the top coat beyond the base coat to “seal” it to your nail even more)

Most commonly, people ask for peel off base coats to combat glitter bombs. Removing them is a PAIN – so this is a great way to do it without the removal process. I picked out Different Dimension Ariel to do my test on. It’s a microglitter bomb that generally requires a little work to remove.

When it was time to peel off, I used an orange stick/cuticle stick and gently lifted around the cuticle and peeled off. None of my nails had lifted bits and it was a pretty clean peel.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 250

Indie by Patty Lopes | Sweet Little Dream

Inspiration:Inspired by model with donuts

Roll Out the Red Velvet has a red velvet scent that starts off with cream cheese frosting and chocolate devil’s food cake with a lingering scent of tonka beans.

Dance the Lemon Merengue is reminiscent of a warm lemon meringue tart – fresh lemon with hint of sweet vanilla.

Red Velvet cake is a favorite of mine, but I’m also very partial to citrus filled sweets too!

Price: $8.00 | Cap: 75

Jen & Berries | He Forced Me to Ruin My Dress

Inspiration: Inspired by Clueless

Inspiration: Inspired by Tropical Blended Drinks

Freshly Blended is a sweet and tropical medley of fresh berries, cantaloupe, and lychee. Sweet sugarcane and vanilla orchid round out this paradise-perfect scent. A soft, cream color is accented by swirling orange, and a hint of glimmering biodegradable glitter tops off the scrub for a sparkling, tropical treat that will have you wishing you had a freshly blended drink in your hand, too!

I mostly smell cantaloupe from this and it smells so delicious!

Price: $10.00 | Cap: None

Lemming Lacquer | HalloQueen

Inspiration: Inspired by my love for Halloween and Halloween decor.  I start shopping for Halloween decor every year as early as possible. I have a gothic and witch aesthetic that I look for but in a variety of colors–not just black and orange.  I thought about not just the colors used in Halloween like purples and greens but I also wanted to capture what I think a HalloQueen would wear.  My thoughts naturally went to this sexy, vampy multichrome with contrasting base.  When I wore this polish I did feel like a witchy queen.

Description: HalloQueen is a reddened boysenberry jelly contrasted by a turquoise to deep green to blue to purple to magenta multichrome with holographic microflakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Wax by LynBDesigns | Product Reviews

Inspiration: Inspired by “…my love of reading amazon reviews and specifically reviews of sugar free gummy bears”

Description: LynBDesigns is back with another delicious wax melt!

Scent described as top notes of Tangy Lemon, Juicy Orange and Peach. Middle Notes of Grape, Coconut and Raspberry. With base notes of Pear, Plum and Sugary Vanilla.

The vanilla base is stronger and tones down the overall fruitiness of the wax. You can still detect some tart notes from the citrus and raspberry, but it’s hard to actually pick out the individual fruits – then all blend together like a mega smoothie!
