One of the things I enjoy most about Polish Pickup is seeing how different makers interpret the month’s theme. With April’s theme being “Across the Universe – Planets & Galaxies”, we’re seeing so many outstanding creations inspired by the immeasurable skies above us. We also have makers like Sacha of Jior Couture, taking inspiration from the fearless, red-headed, green-skinned, dangerous Guardian of the Galaxies, Gamora. Now, before I get too hyped and proceed into Avengers: Infinity Wars theories where we meet her ugly daddy, let’s catch up on what Polish Pickup is all about!
Polish Pickup is a fun Facebook Group where members submit and vote for one theme for the month. Afterward, indie makers create a polish or product based on the decided theme. Members can make purchases through the Polish Pickup website during the four-day shopping window, where you can pick as little or as many items as you desire. The flat rate shipping price of US $3.00/CAD $5.00 is the cherry on top. Evidenced by its rapid growth, PPU is a very clever concept that has introduced me to many new indie brands, as well as given a wider stage for smaller, well-loved ones.
You don’t have to know anything about Gamora to fall in love with Jior Couture’s “Gamora Doesn’t Dance”. If it helps, I can tell you that she’s an alien, known as one of the deadliest women in the (Marvel Comics) Galaxy, comes from a dysfunctional family and is the last of her kind. Since joining the Guardians, Gamora has found a family and is slowly warming up to the idea of love. Believe me, I can go on; I haven’t even touched on Zoe Saldana who plays Gamora in the live action films! Let’s get on, shall we!
Gamora Doesn’t Dance
Gamora Doesn’t Dance is an unapologetic holographic multichrome, shifting from gold to green to pink to purple. Sprinkled in are small and medium-sized holographic flakes. The flakes are nicely mixed in and apply easily with the consistency of the polish. The first coat is pretty light but after the second to third coat, it builds up very well. You can also wear this over black for a quicker, more intense shade. Here, I’m wearing two to three coats with a glossy top coat.
The bottle shown in my pictures is a smaller size just for swatches. When purchased, buyers will receive a larger 12ml sized bottle.
Polish costs: $12.50, no limit on purchases
Available for purchase, Friday, April 6th, 11 am EST, to Monday, April 9th, 11:59 pm EST from Polish Pickup Online
