My next Polish Pickup post has 3 products in it. It has a gorgeous polish, cuticle balm and a lotion bar! Here are Sassy Pants Polish’s offerings for the December Polish Pickup!
As always, we’re going to go through my spiel on Polish Pickup for those not familiar with it!
Before I get into this lovely shade shown above, we’re going to talk about this new Facebook group and I’m going to describe it’s concept. The group is Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. It’s NOT a box though. I think when it formed that was the major misconception of it.
Now, I love polish boxes, however, some purchasers shared their frustration in only wanting 1 or 2 polishes from a box and needing to unload the polishes in the box they didn’t want. So essentially they were paying $40 and up for 1 or 2 polishes and hoping they could sell the polishes they weren’t interested in.
Polish Pickup is different. While the concept of picking themes and voting isn’t new, instead of buying the whole box, you can shop online for JUST the single polishes you want. There can be many indie makers involved with the theme, but you only have to pay for the exact polishes you wanted rather than 4-8 polishes you may not have been interested in.
Then every month the theme and makers change and you get a whole new set of polishes to pick and choose from. So while it has a box like feel (with the voting and themes) it doesn’t carry the box commitment.
This set of polishes will be available from December 1st at 11am EST through December 4th at 11:59pm EST.
The December theme is ‘Holidays Around The World’ so we’re going to see various holidays, some you might be familiar with, some you might learn a little something about through this Polish Pickup theme. I will be adding info about each holiday I cover this month. I know of many of them, but I’m not completely familiar with all of them so this is a learning experience for me as well. If I have inaccuracies about a given holiday, please don’t hesitate to correct me.
Here is the first Sassy Pants Polish inspiration photo (we’re looking at the polish first, then the nail care) Sassy Pants Polish took on 3 holidays overall throughout this post. Christmas, Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day.
Sassy Pants Polish took a slight twist on Christmas, well maybe not twist. Her inspiration for “New England Christmas” focuses on the tradition of lighted candles in the windows and white christmas lights, a fond memory from her childhood traveling from WI to CT for the holidays.
Sassy Pants Polish New England Christmas
Sassy Pants Polish New England Christmas is a sheer, delicate champagne jelly based scattered holographic with red to green to gold shifting iridescent microglitters and a touch of red shimmer. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
This shade is on the sheer side, but it builds up nicely. It would also work as a layering polish
Sassy Pants Polish Cuticle Balm
The next offering is Sassy Pants Polish Cuticle Balm in the scent Sweet Pumpkin Spice! The inspiration photo for this cuticle balm is below, it’s Thanksgiving inspired and smells divine! It has a slightly sweet and spicy traditional pumpkin scent.
Handmade Natural Beauty Lotion Bar
The final item I have to share is Handmade Natural Beauty Lotion Bar in the scent Sweet Romance! This was inspired by Valentine’s Day. If you love Victoria’s Secret Love Spell, then Sweet Romance will be a sure hit for you!
For those not familiar with lotion bars, these are solid lotions that you can rub into your skin, and it melts with body heat. It’s usually less mess and for me, it usually is more moisturizing. While it’s in a container for transport, you easily pop the solid lotion out of the container to use.

No Cap on these for the December Shop
