Polish Pickup November 2017: Lollipop Posse Lacquer Spirit of the Kohaku River

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! Tonight I have Lollipop Posse Lacquer's contribution to November's Fandom-themed Polish Pickup. Karen created Spirit of the Kohaku River with inspiration from the movie "Spirited Away", and is a showstopper! This month's Polish Pickup will start on November 3rd and will run until November 6th. Spirit of Kohaku River will be priced at $12 and it will have a cap this month so do not dawdle if you want to snag one for yourself (though Karen says it is a really generous cap).

Oogie's Boys Trio with CrowsToes Nail Color, Illyrian Polish, and Octopus Party Nail Lacquer

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have two out of the three polishes in the Oogie's Boys Trio to share with you! CrowsToes Nail Color, Illyrian Polish, and Octopus Party Nail Lacquer have come together to create this Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired trio just in time for Halloween! The trio is available now in each maker's shop for $32 with the maker's individual shades being available in each of their respective shops. The pre-order event will end on Tuesday, October 17th at 10 PM Eastern time. Since this is a pre-order, the estimated turn-around time will be 14-21 days after the pre-order ends.

My bottle of the OPNL contribution is currently MIA due to USPS shenanigans, so I decided I would share the CrowsToes and Illyrian contributions before your chance to order is over! Check out Snacks on Rotation's blog post to see Dave's beautiful purpley-mauve holo called Shock:

Polish Pickup October 2017: Le Polish I'm Sexy and I Gnome It

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! Today I have Le Polish's addition to the October 2017 Polish Pickup. The October theme is Monsters and Mythical Creaturesand Le Polish has created a polish inspired by the gnome Shmebulock from the show Gravity Falls (that apparently vomits rainbows...and now I want to watch this show!). The sales dates for this month are October 6th-9th in the Polish Pickup shop

I'm Sexy and I Gnome It is a teal jelly filled with red, green, and silver holo glitters of various sizes, blue/purple and red/green color shifting flakes, and large particle red/green color shifting shimmer. Formula was very nice and easy to work with, having a great glitter load a smooth spread. I used 3 thin coats for full coverage and 1 coat of topcoat for a smooth finish. This polish has a ton going on, but man it is gorgeous! The shimmer is absolutely stunning and really sets everything else off. Allison did a fabulous job of combining so many fun elements into one polish and still have the final result remain sophisticated.
