Polish Pickup: January 2022

Polish Pickup's theme for January is Spices and Condiments. I've got a few items from KBShimmer to show you, these are launching on Jan 7-10 for pre-order.

Say It Ain’t Cilantro is a green polish loaded with reflective pigments. In low lighting, a cilantro leaf green hue catches the light for a muted twinkle. In bright light or with flash, the reflective pigment comes alive. Shown in 2 coats with topcoat. Without a top coat, this shade is textured. Removal is as easy as removing a cream or shimmer polish.

KBShimmer Restoration Drop Thinner
Restore your thick, stringy, goopy or even completely dried out polishes with this thinner. Add a few drops at a time and shake then test, until you have the consistency you desire. If the polish is fully hard, add about 20 drops and let sit overnight, shake the next day, test and repeat until it is thin enough. Glitter polishes are generally thicker and too much thinner can reduce the suspension properties.
The bottle comes with an extra dropper style cap for easy application. To prevent evaporation of the thinner, store with the flat top.

I used KBShimmer thinner for a long while before I became a blogger for her brand. It works well and does not contain any extra/unnecessary ingredients. In the photos, I included my current bottle and an empty bottle that I kept. In total, the PR sample is my fourth bottle and I'm so glad she chose the thinner for PR this round as I was almost out!

Daveen Lacquer: Night Lights

I got Night Lights back in November 2020, when Daveen first launched. I was excited to get to wear it finally, (swatcher life!) and thought I'd share some pictures and my thoughts on the brand. Their polishes are handmade in Michigan by Felecia. The brand is inspired by and named after her late mother, Daveen.
Daveen polishes are 5 free, this means all of their polishes are free of the following five ingredients: toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, camphor, and formaldehyde resin.


I love the contrast between the magenta/gold flakes and the grapey base shade, and when the flakes shift it is magnificent! The flakes seem to glow and the edges show the grapey base shade. Such a beautifully complex polish. I'm wearing two coats in the photos, topped with KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat.

The formula was buttery and so easy to apply. I love the 15ml cube bottles, the holographic label, and the brush! I have spoken with Daveen's owner, Felecia, a few times now and she is a delight to chat with!

If you haven't tried Daveen yet, you should!
There is an email subscription option at the bottom of their shop page, be sure to sign up for launch announcements!
