Who’s ready for intergalactic travels with Polish Pick Up!? April’s theme for the monthly indie shopping excursion is Across the Universe: Planets and Galaxies. But first, if Polish Pick Up sounds like Creole to you, let me give you the quick and dirty.
Polish Pickup is a fun Facebook Group where members submit and vote for one theme for the month. Afterwards, 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.
I have four polishes and one lotion to share with you inspired by this month’s theme. I will feature each in a separate post. First up is Cameo Colours Lacquers!
Cameo has a knack for mixing an unbelievable number of elements into something that is balanced, a polish that is pleasant to work with and, yet still manages to capture the essence of her inspiration. The fact that they’re gorgeous goes without saying, but I’ll still mention it; they’re gorgeous!
These traits can be seen here in Bubble Nebula. A dark oxblood jelly base awash with red shimmer, scattered holo and mixed sizes of red and silver holographic micro glitter. Also, there’s a sprinkling of larger and multi-sized silver flakes. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.
Inspiration: Bubble Nebula
NGC 7635 aka, Bubble Nebula. Bubble Nebula is way more fun to say; rolls right off the tongue.
Note: I found a few of the larger silver flakes lurking at the bottom, but a good shake of the bottle gets it all mingled. The polish applies nicely, no pooling or unevenness, with the flakes laying well.
Polish costs: $12.00, 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
