Can you believe there is only 1 more month left after this for Polish Pickup in 2021? If feels like we just did December 2020’s post and here we are with the Polish Pickup November 2021 Game Night themed post!

Also, I’m really early for this post… and I’m currently on vacation from work. And by “vacation” I mean I’ve been there for a year and just found out I had a week of vacation time to use before my 1 year there on November 9th, so I’m staying home and sleeping in and dropping Jacob off at school in my jammies and unruly hair.

So for my vacation, I’ll be swatching and prepping the next blog sale because… my polish drawers overfloweth.

I do still have more items on the way due to USPS playing with all of our emotions. Currently though, I have 74 items ready to go, so we’re moving forward and I will add in the new arrivals as they show up (which I can do this week lickity split)

Okay onto the post. This month the theme is Game Night. It. Finally. Won. The. Vote. This was a long time coming. Game Night can be board games, card games, video games, shows/movies with game in the title, game snacks, gamer related phrases and … stuff. Just anything game related or loosely interpreted as.

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. For all matte swatches I used Night Owl Lacquer Gone Matte. 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).

The November shop will be open from November 5th until November 8th this month.

Hold on **PPU Admin Hat**

Please keep in mind that USPS has slowed shipments for the holiday season, and we are seeing delays across the board. While PPU does try to get packages out in a timely manner, some packages coming TO headquarters might be delayed arriving, therefore they will be delayed getting out. Plus there might be another delay getting to their new, happy homes. This is out of Polish Pickup’s hands. Please be aware that you might wait up to 2 weeks for your package to go from HQ in Minnesota to your home. Some USPS hubs are busier than others and they might have your package sit and chill out for a bit at their facility.

**Removes PPU Admin Hat**

You will notice the shop itself is a little lighter. Typically there’s 200+ items each month but it’s been toned down a little so there’s closer to 150ish items.

Let’s jump in.

Alchemy Lacquers | Dungeon!

Inspiration: Inspired by the game board from Dungeon!, a classic board game of dungeon exploration!

Description: Dungeon! is a magenta jelly base loaded with pink to orange to gold shifting shimmer and red to black shifting micro flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $12.50 | Cap: 250

All Mixed Up Lacquers | Skip, Reverse, Draw 4

Inspiration: Game of UNO

Description: Skip, Reverse, Draw 4 is a coppery red base loaded with a rainbow assortment of metallic flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The base has an almost chrome like finish.

Price: $13.50 | Cap: 250

Anchor & Heart Lacquer | Siren’s Cure Cuticle Crème

Inspiration:

Description: Siren’s Cure Cuticle Crème is a lightweight cuticle cream that feels almost whipped like and has a little bounce. It was formulated to promote cuticle healing and nail growth. It contains 75% organic ingredients such as aloe leaf juice, coconut oil, neem seed oil, jojoba oil, and white willow bark extract.

Siren’s Cure soaks in quickly and leaves a non greasy feel behind. A little goes a long way too! While it is a cuticle cream, I actually do sometimes use a dab as a hand lotion.

This is a vegan, bees wax-free product and therefore should not be left in direct heat (hot cars, near heaters, etc) as it could compromise the formula.

Scent Description: Woolen Blankets is a warm and sensual scent featuring aromatic rosewood and cedar over a rich blend of spicy clove, vetiver, and dark amber. Perfect for snuggling up in a warm blanket on a cold winter’s night.

My nose actually picks up the cedar and amber more than anything. It is a warm, comforting scent.I do love the light, woodsy tone of it as well since I expected an almost spicy scent.

Price: $6.00 | Cap: None

Anchor & Heart Lacquer | You Have Died Of Dysentery

Inspiration: Inspired by one of the first educational computer games created for schools (millennials know!) – The Oregon Trail! Anyone who has played remembers that there are a number of ways to “die” in this game: cholera, broken leg, snake bite – but dysentery was definitely the most iconic and can still be found in memes, on t-shirts, etc!

Description: You Have Died of Dysentery is a grey holographic base with multichrome shimmer that shifts gold to orange to pink to purple with pops of iridescent flakes that shift lime green to copper to blue. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Even though the holo dulls, I really love this polish matte.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

Aurora 5 Free Nail Lacquer | Don’t Make A Girl A Promise You Can’t Keep (Glow In The Dark)

Inspiration: Cortana from the Halo video game series

Description: Don’t Make a Girl a Promise You Can’t Keep is a deep shifty blurple polish with geometric sparkle that also glows blue in the dark. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The “purple” part of the blurple is more in the base, but it’s more apparent in person. It almost looks like a purple jelly base loaded with a stunning shimmery sparkle to create the blurple effect. For the glow in the dark “charge” i did use a UV Flashlight since I swatch at night.

Glow in the Dark pigment is heavy, before applying – shake shake shake it up to distribute that pigment throughout the polish.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 250

Baroness X Polish | Myst Effect Topper

Inspiration: Inspired by the video game Myst

Description: Myst is a clear based topper with a bright blue shimmer pigment and gold to lime shifting iridescent flakies (over darker colors). Over white it will show the opposite effect, gold shimmer and blue flakies. I did a skittles mani for this and show it over 4 shades (from pinky to index): Night Owl Lacquer Harvest (pr), Maniology Boys Tears, Vapid Lacquer Pessimist (pr) and Fancy Gloss Got Milk?

Price: $11.50 | Cap: None

Baroness X | Xpress Drying Spray in Lemon Blossom & Sea Mist

Inspiration: Inspired by the video game Myst.

Description: Xpress Drying Spray is a fine mist that you spray over your finished mani to help speed out the outer layer dry time. You can only use this on the final layer of polish.

This product contains ingredients that bond with the solvents in nail polish to help them evaporate faster, namely disiloxane. This is the ingredient that evaporates and bonds with solvents the fastest of all the silicones in drying products. Drying products that do not contain this ingredient, won’t dry your nails nearly as quickly as Xpress Drying Spray. Baroness X also added camellia and jojoba oil to help hydrate skin and cuticles at the same time as drying.

Xpress Drying Spray is scented in Lemon Blossom & Sea Mist. It’s described as the sweet scent of the ocean breeze with a beautifully balanced medley of dune grass, lemon blossom, and key lime.

This is a light, fresh and clean scent that is really pleasant. I wouldn’t mind having a hair perfume in this scent.

Price: $6.25 | Cap: None

Bee’s Knees Lacquer | Beware of Winter’s Cold

Inspiration: Demeter from BKL’s current favorite game, Hades

Description: Beware of Winter’s Cold is a pale blue based pastel multichrome which shifts from silver to pink to green. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The shapes are heavier and do fall to the bottom a bit. I put the bottle upside down before apply to get them to the top a bit, and I did do a little fishing to grab more shapes.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 400

Cadillacquer | Ellie (Thermal)

Inspiration: Inspired by the video game The Last of Us Part II

Description: Ellie is a very dark grey (cold) to light grey (warm) crelly based thermal packed with red to orange to gold togreen opal glitter. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.50 | Cap: 400

Cameo Colours Lacquers | Preying on Phantoms

Inspiration: My idea of a perfect game night, curling up under my tortilla blanket in a darkened room and dodging the typhon on a space station (or the moon) in Prey (2016).

Description: Preying on Phantoms is a medium grey crelly base with holo sparkle, indigo to purple to red shimmer, violet to pink to gold and lime to blue to gold ultrachrome chameleon flakes, as well as holo micro flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Colores de Carol | Sticky In 5 Base Coat

Inspiration:

Description: Sticky In 5 is a 5 Free sticky base coat that helps the adhesion of nail polishes to your natural nail. Using base coat will help prevent peeling and chipping and improve the wearability of your nail polish.

I also find sticky base coats like this good for when you make decals (like for fluid polish)

Crystal Knockout | Giggle

Inspiration: Girl Talk

Description: Giggle is a bright pink jelly base with iridescent golden shimmer, holographic silver and matte pink micro glitter, silver holo, matte turquoise stars and matte dots in lavender, neon pink, and light blue. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This will dry with texture due to the glitter content, especially the shaped glitter. You may need 2 coats of top coat, or a glitter grabber like top coat.

Price: $11.00 | Cap: None

This polish is part of a trio of participation, and I have 2 of the 3 in this post. The other I have is Lacquer Is In The Air with I’ll Be The Drummer.

Price: $12.50 | Cap: 300

DRK Nails | Splendor

Inspiration: The boardgame Splendor

Description: Remember Purifire that came out in PPU a few months ago from DRK Nails? Basically Katia took that shimmery element and made it a stand alone shade that can be solo or a topper. I show it as both.

Splendor is a clear base packed with iridescent shifty powder mix that flashes red to gold to green at extreme angles. I used 3 thin coats alone on the index and pinky, and I used 1 coat over Maniology Boys Tears.

Fox Fire Wax & Bath Co. | Clip On Crystal Skull Car Diffuser

Inspiration: Inspired by playing games outside in the fall, in the leaves, in the dark. That makes for spooky times as a kid, especially when the sun starts to go down earlier each day.

Description: First off – there is a plastic piece that comes with it to make it a clip on for the car vent… however, as I opened it up that piece jumped out and landed in one of my 6 polish bins and I have been unable to locate it. I am happy to report that it also doubles as an incredible desk scent diffuser as well.

This clip-on glass skull liquid car freshener/wood & reed diffuser is scented Leaves. It’s described as: fruit notes combine with enchanting spices to capture the magical essence of autumn leaves.

Notes:

Top – green stem, lemon, cedar Leaf
Middle – pine, spiced fruit, floral melange
Bottom – earthy musk undertones

My nose mainly picks up the spice fruit! I smell spiced apple cider with mild earthy musk.

The liquid inside will soak into the wood lasting up to 60 days depending on temps etc. (Refills will be available on the Baroness X site.)

When you receive this, unscrew the wooden cap and remove the plastic stopper under the lid. If using the clip on, place the white metal clip over the screw top, hold it in place and then replace the wood cap by screwing it back on. This will hold the clip in place. Insert the wooden stick in the hole at the top of the wooden cap, then clip to your vehicle vent, or use at your desk as a mini diffuser.

Price: $9.00 | Cap: None

Garden Path Lacquers | I Will Create The Perfect System

Inspiration: Inspired by 1982’s classic gaming movie “Tron”, and Clu’s endeavor to create the perfect system.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

Glisten & Glow | Glitter Grabber

Inspiration:

Description: Glitter Grabber is a “cushion” between textured polishes and top coat. It fills in all the nooks and crannies so you can apply top coat and have a smooth, glassy finish. Most of the time if you just use 2 coats of top coat – super textured polishes will still get little “sink holes”, but with Glitter Grabber you still get that smooth finish.

Always top it all off with your favorite glossy top coat. Glitter Grabber is not meant to be a standalone top coat, so it requires another top coat of your choice over it.

For the mani shown, base is Glisten & Glow On Thin Ice (which you’ll see next) and glitter topper is Vapid Lacquer Cadillac Ranch (pr)

Price: $8.00 | Cap: No Cap

Glisten & Glow | On Thin Ice

Inspiration: As kids we love snow days! After we had gone sledding and made snow angels, we would come inside to warm up with hot coco and play our favorite winter game of Thin Ice! Always trying to make sure our marble wasn’t the one that “broke the ice.”

Description: On Thin Ice is an icy, powder blue polish loaded with color shifting shimmers that shift from orange to red to yellow to green. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

Healthy Fawns | Classic Horror Pencil Pouch

Inspiration: The Classic Horror Pencil Pouch was inspired by the Horrified board game and all the classic monsters it features.

Description: Any fan of Classic Horror monsters like the Wolf Man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, or Dracula will love this Classic Horror Pencil Pouch. The pouch measures 4″ tall x 10 1/2″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep and has a rainbow zipper and aurora electroplated zipper to match. The inside has a spooky night fabric as well. This is a colorful pouch and I am currently using it to hold all my lip pencils.

Price: $16.00 | Cap: 44

Heather’s Hues | Spymaster (Thermal)

Inspiration: A game called CodeNames

Description: Spymaster is a deep magenta (cold) to colorless (warm) crelly based thermal filled with iridescent flakes and glitters and a touch of multichrome flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This is very flake and glitter packed, so it may become thicker with use. It’s perfectly fine to add a few drops of thinner if needed for preference.

Price: $15.00 | Cap: None

Heather’s Hues | WiTs Lotion in Gumdrop Mountains

Inspiration: Candy Land

Description: WiTs body lotion is a fast absorbing body lotion that doesn’t leave my hands greasy. The texture is light and creamy and a little goes a long way.

The November scent is Gumdrop Mountains. “Gumdrop Mountains” is a blend of sparkling sugared berries with pink cotton candy, hints strawberry and raspberry, and a base of sugared plum.

This is a sweeter scent, but not sickeningly sweet. The sweet berries is the most powerful note for me, but the sugared fruits and cotton candy are perfectly balanced for a nice, sweet blend that doesn’t make your teeth hurt sniffing it.

And fair warning – this item usually is one of the first to sell out – so grab it immediately if you want it.

Price: $7.25 | Cap:50

Indie by Patty Lopes | Senna

Inspiration: Senna – League of Legends

Description: Senna is a medium blue jelly base loaded with aurora shimmer shifting from pink to gold, as well as silver and black galaxy holo glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Inspiration: Nightmare, the VCR board game

Description: Yes, My Gatekeeper is a deep, cool toned purple jelly base loaded with blue to purple to pink shimmer, aqua flecks and holographic micro flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The base color and shimmery additives give this a very blurple look and depending on lighting it will lean more into purple or more into blue.

Price: $12.50 | Cap:120

Jior Couture | 6 and a Possible

Inspiration: Spades!A classic cookout game where you’re either victorious or come out with hurt feelings.Spades is not for the weak!

Description: 6 and a Possible is a black (cold) to charcoal grey (hot) jelly based thermal packed with color shifting chameleon flakes and 2 different metallic holo flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The warm shade is sheer since it’s a jelly so if you layer this over a red or another base – you would be able to play with it a little more and see a fun color combo

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

Jreine | Keep On Rollin’

Inspiration: Dice

Description: Keep On Rollin’ is a clear base loaded with flakes that shift green to blue to purple, as well as silver holo flecks, with shifting shimmer that goes from green to blue to purple. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade will look different depending on lighting source and angle. It’s super shifty

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

KBShimmer | Sugar Scrub in Peppermint

Inspiration: Peppermint Forest from Candyland

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.

Pure peppermint essential oil scents this creamy sugar base swirled with streaks of pink for a minty winter treat for your skin. Peppermint essential oil has a tingly, cooling effect to refresh and pamper tired legs and feet. We don’t recommend using peppermint scrub on any sensitive bits, as the cooling effect can be intense.

I am one of those people who love minty bath products in my morning shower – it helps give that little wake up boost for me. This one isn’t a sugary sweet peppermint, it’s a nice BLAST of peppermint that awakens all the senses.

Price: $10.00 | Cap: None

KBShimmer | That’s Taboo

Inspiration: Taboo Board Game

Description: Taboo is a heavily blue leaning teal jelly base loaded with silver holographic flakes, and fuchsia to lavender to rose pink shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Inspiration: Inspired by Voidwalkers. Voidwalkers are a race of creatures from Dungeons & Dragons.

When dealing with non-voidwalkers they tend to carry a variety of masks and wear lots of heavy clothing. Aside from being invisible Voidwalkers are masters of disguise and are able to cast spells without using a verbal component allowing them to cast spells without breaking stealth or when affected by silence.

Luna Wax | Crit! Wax Melts

Inspiration: inspired by Dungeons and Dragons.

Description: Wax melts in Dragons and Dice shapes scented berries, pineapple, kiwi, passion fruit, mango and an effervescence from soda.

I mostly caught the berries and effervescence for this one, but you can detect the tart pineapple a bit. This is a bright, fruity scent that is on the sweet side.

Price: $6.50 | Cap: 75

LynBDesigns | Game Night Charcuterie Wax Melt

Inspiration: wax melt inspired by game night snacks (don’t worry.. not the meat and cheese kind)

Description: Game Night Charcuterie is a wax melt with top notes of apple, pear and banana. Middle notes of cinnamon, sage, clove and cardamom, and base notes of pecan and vanilla.

My nose primarily picks up the cinnamon and clove as well as the apple and pear. It reminds me of a holiday like wax melt, but the cinnamon notes are better balanced with the fruit so it’s not overpoweringly cinnamon.

Price: $5.00 | Cap: 110

LynBDesigns | Professor Thirst Trap

Inspiration: Professor Plum from the game Clue

Description: Professor Thirst Trap is a blackened plum base with black to red to orange shifting multichrome and added holo sparkle. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

Michelle Mildred Art | Analog and Digital Vintage Sticker Duo

Inspiration: Inspired by Scrabble and Tetris, both analog and digital, are vintage even if the makers are still printing them and maintaining their web domain! Scrabble and tetris are beloved classics that stand the test of time. Tetris may not be Call of Duty but can you get away with playing COD under your desk at school? Probably not but you can get away with playing tetris under your desk which makes tetris as relatable as having math class. There may be new digital versions of Scrabble out but nothing beats the class wooden tiles and cardboard gameboard.

Description: Michelle Mildred Art created these adorable nail polish bottle stickers with both Tetris and Scrabble designs! The stickers are printed on thicker sticker demi gloss paper and if you’re crafty – you can add them to magnet backings.

I actually want to add the scrabble one to my car.

Price: $5.00 | Cap: 95

I accidentally discovered this is a surprise magnetic. It wasn’t supposed to be – but I got the bottle close to a magnet and.. it changed. So I tested it on a nail – and sure enough – it’s magnetic. I let the maker know so.. surprise!

You can wear it either way, so I show it both ways. I used a magnet on my middle and ring and let the pinky and index alone!

Price: $12.00 | Cap: 150

Red Eyed Lacquer | Gamer Snacks Da Balm-er

Inspiration: Twinkies!

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 November scent is Gamer Snacks.. and it’s scented in a golden creme filled spongecake that we all know! Definitely a sweet treat and while I can’t eat Twinkies… I sure do love the scent of them

Price: $7.50 | Cap: 100

Red Eyed Lacquer | Survival Mode

Starlight and Sparkles | Chess Page Marker Set

Inspiration: Chess

Description: A set of six page markers, each with white and black beads and a small antique silver colored chess piece! Each set has a pawn, a knight, a bishop, a rook, a queen, and a king.

Due to the shape of these rectangular paperclips, the charms can’t freely slide all around the clip. These type of paperclips to be quite secure, able to reliably hold quite a few sheets, and I usually find they’re less likely to leave paperclip imprints in the page they’re attached to.

Price: $12.00 | Cap: 60

Starlight Polish | How Many Dice Do You Need?

Inspiration: Dice!

Stella Chroma | Emulsified Sugar Scrub in Cotton Candy

Inspiration: Cotton Candy

Description: Stella Chroma’s Emulsified Sugar Scrub is an incredibly fine particle sugar that’s densely packed in. Dig a little out of the jar, massage into your hands then rinse and keep rubbing it in while rinsing. Your hands will feel smooth, soft and incredible.

This month’s scrubby concoction has the sweet scent of cotton candy! Reminiscent of the pink and blue spun sugar that turned our faces and fingers into sticky messes as kids.

This is sweet and almost makes you want to lick it. Don’t though.

Price: $6.50 | Cap: None

Supermoon Lacquer | Foresaken

Inspiration: The RPG game, Werewolf: the Foresaken, from the Chronicles of Darkness series, which is the sequel/successor to the original World of Darkness’s Werewolf: the Apocalypse.

Price: $10.00 | Cap: 150

It is scented with everyone’s favorite – orange creamsicle! Simply rub the scrub into nails and cuticles in a circular motion then wash off excess with warm water. Scent notes: fresh orange peel, vanilla bean, sweet cream.

This smells amazing and I want a giant tub to use all over.

Price: $8.50 | Cap:None

Unicorn Magic Skin Care | Deluxe Cuticle Oil in LSparkling Limoncello

Inspiration: Games nights are way more fun with a drink!

Description: Unicorn Magic Skin Care Deluxe Cuticle Oil is a carefully selected blend of intensive oils packed with vitamins and antioxidants, for healthy looking skin and nails. Not too greasy yet heavy duty, and fast absorbing. More than 50% jojoba oil, for maximum benefit. Comes in a tube with a doe foot wand applicator.

The scent is Sparkling Limoncello and it’s a vibrant burst of lemon with effervescence to make it fizzy. It smells bright and clean.

Price: $8.25 | Cap: 200

Vibrant Vinyls | Mr Mint Double Bond Base Coat

I’d even choose the KB Shimmer scrub to try since there’s finally a mint, but I have no idea if medium grit or fine grit is better, so it’s not worth getting the wrong one.
