The Polish Pick Up

I have been aware of the Polish Pick Up for months, but only JUST placed my first order in September and I can't fathom why I waited so long!

The Polish Pick Up is a group of Indie Makers who put out unique polishes and products the first weekend of every month.  Each month there is a new theme, which is voted on during the purchase window of the previous month.  Themes are suggested by the members of the Polish Pick Up Pack, then collected by the admins and voted on by the members.  On top of the chance to grab group exclusive polishes and products, there is also a flat rate of $3 for shipping to the US AND CANADA!  After making your purchase the first weekend of the month, you do wait 3 weeks for the items to be shipped and once they were shipped I did wait over another week to receive them (they did spend some time in customs limbo).  Which meant that I was already ordering for the month of October before I had September's in hand.  Once I did receive the three I ordered, I decided it was TOTALLY worth the wait! 
The theme for September 2017 was Fall Foliage and Fun.  There were over 40 polishes to choose from as well as nail vinyls and decals, cuticle butters and charms.  I chose two polishes from makers I was already familiar with and one that I hadn't tried yet, because what a great way to introduce yourself to a new brand!  

It turned out the new to me brand was my favorite of the three!  This is Night Owl Lacquer's contribution, Pining For Fall.  Described as an "olive green crelly filled with golden micro-shimmer and various shades of shifting UCC flakies" (by the groups guest swatcher for the month Lacquered Mama )

The second polish was Heather's Hues Autumn Nights Leaf Me Breathless. A purple base filled with 'unicorn pee' pigment, shifting micro-glitters, multi-chrome flakies and a little copper holo dust

The third and final polish of my September order was a favorite maker of mine, because she seems to love flakies as much as I do... Ever After Polish with Berries in the Leaves!  It is a nude leaning pink crelly full of multichrome flakies and gold shimmer and it's gorgeous!

So happy with my choices and the whole experience.  I already participated in the entire process for the October theme which was Monsters and Mythical Creatures and put my order in for a few more!  If you'd like to check it out for November where the theme voted for was Fandoms (seriously can't wait for some really cool creations there!), come join the Polish Pick Up Pack on Facebook to stay up to date with all the latest swatches and reveals!  

Hope you all are having the bestest of days! Thanks for reading! xo
