Great Lakes Lacquer for Polish Pick Up: Redrum

The Polish Pick Up theme for September is Horror Movies, and Great Lakes Lacquer brings us a vampy red inspired by The Shining.

Redrum
An oxblood based linear holo filled with shifting magenta to orange shimmer and finished with holo microflake.
No Cap

I can't even with this polish! The sparkle, the shift, the holo. ALL.THE.YES. I wore two coats with topcoat.

Look how it looks with flash! The pinks/magenta and holo really comes out to play.

And turned away from my bright studio lights the orange shimmer shows itself really well.

KBShimmer for Polish Pick Up: The One Soul

The Polish Pick Up theme for September is Horror Movies, and KBShimmer brings us a thermal polish inspired by Constantine.

The One Soul
A hauntingly muted mint green base that leans blue-gray sparks of shimmery turquoise and a hint of holo sparkle. Giving a nod to the horror aspect of the film, this shade is thermal and changes from a deep midnight to near black depending on how cold your hands are. This shade is best in 2-3 coats depending on nail length.
No cap.

I wore two coats with KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat. Horror movies aside, this would make for a fun Christmas or St. Pat's day mani!
While this may appear teal on your device, it is described by Christy as green. My photos do appear color accurate to me on my pc monitor and phone (GalaxyS8), just keep in mind that greens and teals both can be difficult to shoot with accuracy across all devices.

Get your bottle of The One Soul on September 3rd-6th.

She’s the Doctor
an intense linear holographic blue polish that is a nod to the Doctor’s favorite mode of transportation.

Wowza! The holo in this is insane, ya'll. It has that purpley flame that's lit from within and just seems to glow. It can even be seen in low light situations. I wore two coats, but one coat could be used in a pinch and no one would be the wiser. If you have not seen Nikki's video in her fan group, def give that a look!

Oh, Brilliant!
a shimmering multichrome that shifts primarily between purple, pink, and gold with green at extreme angles. It is packed with a stunning collection of aurora shimmers and a tiny touch of micro holo shimmer that enhances its sparkling shifts.

Hold on to your seat because this one is a wild ride! The shifts were really easy to capture in photos and there are so many more variants that I could have shot many more photos. You'll just have to get this one to see for yourself. Two coats shown.

Regenerate
This duochrome flakie thermal transitions from white with purple/fuschia shifting flakies when warm to a blue to purple shifting duochrome with coordinating flakies when cold.

The shifty pigment in this is so neat looking under my lighting. Where the light shines brightest is different from the rest of the nail, plus it's thermal and has flakes. Legit. Two coats shown.

Would You Be My New Best Friends?
Copper shimmer and aurora pigments throughout a blurple base with coordinating flakies make this polish a glowing, shimmering masterpiece.

The copper shimmer under the purple jelly gives it a reddish shimmery glow and the flakes add pops of color. Two coats shown.

This Is Gonna Be Fun
a complex silver scattered holographic with periwinkle undertones and purple to red shifting shimmer.

If you haven't checked out the fan group yet, there's a swatch wheel and boomerang video that I shared where this polish is used as a topper. Two coats shown here.

The Key to the Universe
a dusty multichrome that shifts between rose, mauve, lilac, and gold with gold microflakes and a light touch of holo microflakes.

Do you like rose gold shades? You might love this one! It has a subtle shift to a light purple hue! Very shiny and sparkly, two coats shown.
