Kathleen & Co wraps up my Polish Pickup reviews for this walk down memory lane, aka, 90’s Pop Culture theme. Mia adds more music to the mix with Eminem/Slim Shady/Marshall Mathers. I can still remember that music video, it’s hard to believe it was really that long ago. Aging, so fun!
Let’s have a quick chat about the Polish Pickup concept then let’s ogle Mia’s thermal beauty.
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.
My Name Is…
My Name Is, in its cold state is a purple with leanings toward orchid. In its warm state, it goes to a cloudy, almost clear lavender. In both states, pretty shifty purple flakes add lots of interest. You can spot some bright pink in some of my transition shots which leads me to believe this might even be a tri-thermal. The application felt similar to that of a jelly polish and was opaque in three thin coats. It’s topped with glossy top coat.
Price: $11.00, only 125 available
Available for purchase, Friday, May 4th, 11 am EST, to Monday, May 7th, 11:59 pm EST from Polish Pickup Online
