Y’all. I had this whole effing post written last night. My dashboard locked up, so I copied a small part because it said it had saved. IT LIED, Y’ALL. IT LIED. So here we are, yet again.
Take two. 3 hours after the US shop went live.
I’m back after a very long hiatus from the nail world – I won’t go into details, it’s a buzzkill, but you can read more as to why, here. That, however, is not why you’re here. You’re here for the polish, yeah? Yeah!
The January 2020 Polish Pickup just opened with the amazingly awesome Written in the Stars theme and y’all, I’m jazzed. I’m a failure of a leo with a great purple mane and a deep love of astrology and astronomy. There are so many good offerings this month! If you’re unsure of what the Polish Pickup (along with the Indie Pickup) is, I recommend checking out this post here. The only thing that’s changed is that shipping to Canadialand is now $5, but that’s it.
First up is Moon Shine Mani‘s offering, Through the Heavens – $12 | no cap. It is described as a midnight blue crelly sparkling with a rainbow of iridescent micro glitters, red to green shifting shimmer, and silver holo glitters.
My photos of this beauty show two coats plus top coat. It goes on smoothly but does have a tiny bit of texture with those gorgeous micro glitters. A good top coat smooths it the rest of the way! It’s so lovely, there’s so much packed into it, much like the heavens above. Phoebe kicked ass with this one, my dudes.
The second polish I have to share is from Lindsay of Night Owl Lacquer. The Archer ($12.50 | no cap) is a violet base filled with 3 different color shifting crystal chameleon flakes in shades of purple/red/orange/gold/green and red/gold ultrachrome chameleon flakes.
Being a jelly, the base can be a touch sheer, so my photos show 3 coats plus top coat. My VNL is pretty dark, though, so YMMV. Even with any sheerness, the flakies sing and bring an intense wow factor and I am so here for it.
So, what do you fine folks think? What’s on your wishlist? I may have snagged a few polishes myself. I can’t resist star and space stuff!
The Polish Pickup and Indie Pickup both opened today 11am EST, and will remain open until the following Monday at 11:59pm. As usual, shipping is a flat $3 for the US and a flat $5 for our neighbors North of the wall! International shipping is also available at cost. For more photos and links on what is offered, you’re going to want to check out the Polish Pickup Pack on FB.
And with that, I’m out! I started The Vampire Diaries (because I didn’t when it first came out for some odd reason??? Ian Somerhalder is totally swoon-worthy) so I think I’m going to put an episode on and nap before my next shift.
Thanks for stopping by!
So, have fun, make good choices, take your meds, and drink your water. <3
