Polish Pickup: Everything Is Fine

The theme this month for Polish Pickup is Everything Is Fine! Launching Dec 4 at 10a Central through 7, 11p Central. A lot of great brands have offerings this month, and I have some of them to show you!

xoxoJen's swatch of Polish Pickup: Everything Is Fine


KBShimmer Cats & Pajamas
A blue-leaning gray crelly base is flecked with glowing holo flakes. Color-shifting flakes shift between fuchsia, pink and orange.
Inspired by flannel pajamas and the animals that keep us company while at home
No Cap

I love a grey polish with pops of color and this one delivers! Shown in two coats with topcoat.

KBShimmer Cozy At Home sugar scrub
A hint of vanilla, tonka bean, subtle floral notes from jasmine, and a hint of patchouli anchors the blend
Inspired by the simple pleasures of home such as a warm blanket, a fuzzy pair of socks, or a loving nudge from a pet.
No Cap

I'd describe this as a balanced blend of clean, spicy and warm.
I definitely get vanilla and a certain spiciness. I smell a clean top note, which I am guessing is the jasmine but it doesn't really smell like straight up jasmine to me. This is how you know all the scents are blended really well, when you can't pick out a single scent on its own.

Lollipop Posse Relentless
Inspired by a crab and his cigarette. Life is relentless, isn't it?
A navy blue jrelly base packed with red/green/orange/gold shifting iridescent flakes and finely milled Aurora shimmer that shifts between red, gold, and green.
No cap

The flake against the dark base just pops! Such a morph of color in this! While the base is described as navy, I see more of a dark royal and coupled with the shimmer it almost looks as if it were slightly teal leaning. Shown in two coats with topcoat.

LynB Designs Don't Be A Trash Can't, Be A Trash Can
A violet(cool) to white(warm) thermal filled with flakes that shift purple, lime, teal, copper, and pink. The polish also includes cosmic holo micro flakies and pink to gold to green shifting shimmer.
No cap

Did ya'll know this is really a tri-thermal?! I had no idea until I was editing the photos and there it was, a middle blueish version of the cool violet. Shown in two coats with topcoat.

The Soapy Chef Self Care Lotion Bar
Taking extra time to care for yourself with this delicious smelling lotion bar comes easy. It has a softer core of deep chocolate in the center and a slightly harder outer. Made with skin loving ingredients like Shea and cocoa butter, avocado and coconut oil the bar will moisten and soften your skin. The aroma will comfort you with notes of cardamom, chocolate, roasted espresso, allspice and a hint of vanilla bean.
Cap: 70 US, 5 UK

I thoroughly enjoyed trying this lotion bar, the scent is intoxicating and comforting at the same time. One of those 'close your eyes' moments as you inhale the scent. My skin just drank this up as seen in the last photo, super moisturizing. I really appreciate that the tin has a screw top lid rather than the type that pulls off - definitely saving my nails from breaks with that!

KBShimmer: Love At Frost Sight collection

"It starts slowly, but before we know it, tepid air becomes chilly. Swirling flakes litter the frosted ground, and sweaters and jackets are unpacked to fight off the cold. As the outdoors freeze, we turn our attention to making our homes warm and inviting for the winter. Flannel pajamas, hot cocoa and fuzzy blankets keep us cozy while binge-watching a favorite show. Sparkling holiday d├ęcor amplifies the precious time spent with family and friends, while scents from homemade foods usher in memories of holidays past."

Inspired by being home for the holiday season, KBShimmer’s new 10-piece collection celebrates those special moments that will make this winter one to remember.
The Love At Frost Sight Collection launches Wednesday, November 25th at 10a ET.

Sip Back & Relax
A deep red, wine-colored linear holographic polish. This shade is shown two ways in my photos, first under my usual studio daylight bulb lighting which really shows off the wine shade and then under a light further away and warmer in color temp which shows off that striking linear holo rainbow!

Sol Amazing
Thin flakes in a clear base that shift to shades of red, orange, gold, green and at extreme angles, aqua. Most flashy when worn over darker colors. This is the topper you have all been waiting for! The same flakes as used in Sol Blue and the Endless Summer collection! Don't sleep on this one!

Stream on, Stream Away
A deepened navy blue creme.
Even though this is described as a cream, I'd say it leans jelly or at most crelly. I really love the formula of this one, so smooth and glossy!

Next are quite a few combos of a variety of polishes from the collection!

I layred Sol Amazing on top of Celebrate Good Shine, because why not? I wanted to see just how much sparkle we can get from this combo and well, ya'll ain't ready for this!!

All polishes are shown in two coats with topcoat unless otherwise stated. The formula for all of these were fantastic, as I've consistently found with all KBShimmer polishes.
