Press samples ahead!
Good evening, my little nerdlings! Today is my day off and I’ve been a complete bum. Mark had to go out of town for work again (just till tomorrow, thank goodness), so I curled my lazy ass up in bed and went back to sleep. Got up to get some yummy Chinese food, get this post up, and then I’m debating curling back up after a lovely tub journey. I’ve never really been one to just lounge around and relax. I’ve never been good at it, but man. This is nice.
This weekend starts June’s Polish Pickup launch for the month and I’m super excited because there’s some super gorgeous polishes that’ll be available. If you’re not familiar with the idea, it’s pretty neat! Each month, folks get the chance to vote on themes and then makers will create gorgeous polishes based on the chosen theme. From there, the weekend that they go live, you can pick and choose which polishes you’d like to purchase. Shipping is a flat $3 to the US and Canada regardless of how many polishes you purchase. Definitely beats buying a box for only one or two polishes and then hoping you can sell the other ones in the box that you didn’t wish to buy. I’ve got full details in an older post here just in case you’d like to learn a bit more!
Tonight, I’ve got Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer‘s contribution to the June box! The overall theme is Under the Sea, and she based hers on this picture of sea anemones! Aren’t they gorgeous?
Here we’ve got With Fronds Like These, Who Needs Anemones? GAWD, I LOVE THE NAME. IT’S TOO CUTE. It’s a blue base packed with bright purple sparks, purple and bright blue micro flakies and scattered holo and will retail for $9 before shipping.
The polish is absolutely gorgeous. It’s almost this gorgeous blurple in some lighting but it’s so bright and just BAM. Nichole from Bedlam Beauty pointed out that it’s a Whovian blue, and she’s so so so right! My photos show three thin coats plus top coat, but most folks will only need two. My VNL is a mighty bitch. The formula on this is absolutely perfect. It went on so smoothly and intensified in color with each coat. I messaged Lindsay immediately after swatching it telling her that she was a damn magician because this is straight up magic. Seriously. It may be my favorite out of all the polishes I’ve seen for the June PPU, but I may be just a little biased because I love Lindsay to bits. Either way, it’s gorgeous.
I went back and added some bubbles from one of my favorite hēhē collections, the Miyazaki Collection – plate 066. As usual, the stamping was done with my trusty Baroness X stamper and Dia from Moonflower polish!
Ugh, I’m just so in love with it! You’ll be able to snag this from June 2nd to the 5th, along with the 27 (!!!!!) other maker creations! Remember, shipping is a flat $3, so you can order a bajillion polishes without worrying about shipping costing an arm and a leg.
For more photos and links on what’s releasing for preorder on Friday, you’re going to want to check out the Polish Pickup Pack on FB.
Don’t forget to check out the Night Owls Just Wanna Get Lacquered Up facebook group and Night Owl Lacquer’s instagram as well.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m going to curl up in bed and watch creepy movies and shows for the rest of the night. Hope y’all have a good one!
