I’m beyond thrilled that Krys from Vapid has joined Polish Pickup! She coming in hard with a favorite of mine, Selena! I can’t call myself a Tejano music fan, but I absolutely enjoyed Selena. Sometimes I still Google myself to sadness on the events of her passing, but watching the movie and butchering the Spanish lyrics is always so satisfying! It takes me right back home, watching and singing with my little sister and cousin. So yes, Selena has a soft spot in my heart and I’m very glad that Krys has given her a spot in this 90’s Pop Culture round of Polish Pickup. Time for my quick PPU rundown and on to the polish! This is gonna be pretty photo heavy since this is a thermal multichrome…what! Oh! And I arted!
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.
Anything For Selenas
If you’ve watched any of Selena’s performances or have watched the movie, then the cool state of this shade should take you right to her purple jumper! It’s pretty spot on. Anything for Selenas, a thermal multichrome, in its cool state is a deep purple which shifts to magenta and peeks of gold and sharp angles. In its warm state, it lightens up to a brighter magenta with shifts to pink. In both states, shifting purple and gold shimmer can be spotted along a handsome sprinkling of holographic flecks. The formula and application are pleasing, with the flecks laying nicely and drying to a matte finish. I’m wearing two coats with glossy topcoat.
I couldn’t resist doing some nail art for this Selena polish! I attempted her jumper and some freehand roses as my little ode to “Como La Flor”!
