Press Samples of the September 2018 Polish Pickup
Horror Movies

It’s been a really long, exhausting weekend. The whole house has been sick at some point this weekend plus some other family things going on. I’m finally sitting down and trying to play catch up. My desk kind of looks like an explosion took place, I ran out of remover and I almost forgot to include an item in the collage so I had to redo it. Just one of those weekend.

Anyways – tonight we’ll be looking at my review of 42 of the September 2018 Polish Pickup items!

I know I mentioned it last month (and did a post on it!) but there are fewer items in Polish Pickup now. You’ll see a couple non polish items sprinkled in, but Indie Pickup is now a thing! You can find your favorite non polish indie items there, and they will be up later this month (3rd Friday of the month!)

Okay, let’s get into what you came here for. You know the drill…

Before I get into this, 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 September 7th at 11am EST through September 10th at 11:59pm EST.

Let’s jump right in.

For the first 6 photos, I’ll show the polish on it’s own in both hot and cold state. The final photo is a “skittles” mani showing it layered over other shades, which transitions it a bit! I wasn’t feeling well this weekend, so the skittles mani is only shown in a mid transition state since my temp wouldn’t allow it to stay in the cooler state long enough for photos.
