March Polish Pick Up: Album Covers


The March Polish Pick Up theme is Album Covers! Launch is 3/1 at 10am Central. All of the brands have great offerings this month, and I have four of those shades and an indie pick up item to share with you!

1850 Lunar Eclipse
based on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album.
a black linear holo thermal (cold) with holo microflakes that transitions to a silvery linear holo (warm).

Two coats shown with topcoat, during its transition phase, it goes to an in between charcoal shade. Formula was good, no issues to report. I cannot recall having seen a linear holo thermal before, how awesome is this?!

Colors by Llarowe Hello, Hello, Hello
Inspired by the album Nevermind.
a bright pool blue crelly base with purple to aqua Aurora pigment and violet to blue to green iridescent flakes.
Two coats shown with topcoat. The violet shimmer comes to the forefront when worn over a black cream. I only did a swatch wheel with this, but watch for Delanie's (Fat Cat Pawlished) live video on facebook for a view of this. She always shows them over black and I've confirmed that she received this one. :)

Ethereal Superposition
inspired by Young The Giant
A cornflower blue base packed with red to green shimmer! This is not UP.
Two coats shown with topcoat, formula was good and it is sheer enough to use as a topper with similar base shades, also looks great over black!

a vibrant purple with heavy violet undertones, accented with purple and blue shimmer, gold flakes, and colour shifting flakes in purple/blue.

KBShimmer The Kid (Tri-Thermal Polish)
The album cover for Purple Rain helped to inspire the KBShimmer March PPU shade.
a tri-thermal polish made to match the moody feel of the cover. When cold, a deepened eggplant shade is accented by micro flakes that shift from purple to copper and gold. When this shade starts to warm, a grape-leaning purple transitions into a violet-leaning fuchsia. Shown is 2 coats with a glossy top coat.

KBShimmer Raspberry Beret Sugar Scrub
The album cover for Purple Rain helped to inspire the KBShimmer March PPU shade.
Like freshly picked berries, this scrub’s scent is sweet, with tart and juicy notes, and is swirled in shades of purple and pink to match Prince’s outfit on the Purple Rain album cover.

The recommendation for scrub use is typically with water or in a shower where there's a lot of water; but I prefer to use it dry for part of my manicure prep. I find that the oils sink in deeper without water for a better moisturizing effect. I then add a little water and scrub it around til most of the sugar dissolves, then rinse. I pat dry with a towel to help keep the oils on the skin. I enjoyed this scent thoroughly, raspberry is one of my favorite scents for body products.
