My April Polish Pick Up Purchases!

I was on a 'no buy'... But... it was my birthday! 🎁
So these few beauties somehow jumped into my cart and insisted I have them as my present! 😁

When I saw the swatches of Alter Ego's April Polish Pick Up offering I knew I had to own it!  It's like bottled sunshine!  The theme for April was Across the Universe, with the makers drawing inspiration from galaxies, planets, movies etc.  I could not resist the yellow orange glow of this polish and it was first on my wish list!  Altarf Aka Beta Cancri is a yellow/orange base with a hint of gold shimmer, filled with orange/red micro flakes, it goes on smooth and only required two coats.

Next to catch my eye was Drop It Like It's Hoth from Dollish Polish, I mean the name alone screamed I had to have it, hello... Star Wars!  I am after all a mid 70's kid!  When I finally got a sneak peak and saw the colours it was on the wish list.   It is a white/blue shimmer base speckled with green to blue duo chrome flakes.  It had good coverage in two coats but also required 2 coats of topcoat as there are some larger flakes in there that did not want to lay flat for me!  Such a pretty polish!

The third must have was from my go to for cuticle/hand care, Cuter Cuticles.  This amazing nail oil that smells like Reese's Pieces is called Phone Home, inspired by every 80's kids favourite alien ET!
Sammy has her summer box of goodies on sale now in her shop so be sure to check it out!  My drawers are full of her oils and butters!

 And just because we're talking about Sammy... here is some other nail mail that arrived this week also, but these are essentials so obviously weren't breaking my no buy.  😉

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and enjoys the coming week! ~Kelly
