We’re finally here – #13 of the Polish Pickup shades I have to share this month! This beauty is Top Shelf Lacquer Fang Banger!
Okay first 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 November 3rd at 11am EST through November 6th at 11:59pm EST.
The November theme is ‘Fandoms’ so we’re going to see a large variety of fandoms across the board. Top Shelf Lacquer took on True Blood for their inspiration!
Here is the Top Shelf Lacquer inspiration photo!
And here’s the polish!
Top Shelf Lacquer Fang Banger
Top Shelf Lacquer Fang Banger is described as a taste of TruBlood wine with the bronze flakes of Lafayette’s eye shadow, the red shimmer of lust, and the holo sparkle of innocence lost.
In my description, it’s a medium cool toned red packed with red shimmer, bronze flakes and silver holographic microflecks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
In the show – Fang Banger is a human who allows vampires to drink their blood and enjoys having sex with vampires.
