Polish Pick Up: April 2019

The April Polish Pick Up theme is famous works of art! Launch is 4/5 at 10am Central. All of the brands have great offerings this month, and I have four of those shades to share with you!

xoxoJen's swatch of Polish Pick Up: April


1850 Artisan Ballerina
Inspired by the many ballet paintings of Edgar Degas.
A ballet pink that glows with copper and aurora shimmers, and it is filled with iridescent red to green flakes and delicate gold microflakes. Shown is two coats with topcoat, delicately sheer and beautiful.

Heather's Hues Sunshine is the Best Painter
Inspired by the gorgeous stained glass of La Sagrada Familia.
A black crelly packed with a rainbow of different shaped flakes. Shown in two coats with topcoat, this polish has such depth and the way the light bounces across the metallic flakes is mesmerizing.

KBShimmer Wave After Wave
Inspired by "The Ninth Wave," a painting by Ivan Aivazovsky.
A stormy base of gray with subtle lavender tones. A strong coppery red to gold magnetic shimmer is set off by gold flakes, while bits of micro holo flakes add a hint of sparkle. When used with a magnet, the base's lavender tones and gold flakes really take center stage. Or, use like a regular polish and let the coppery shimmer shine! Shown in 2 coats magnetized. Formula was good, no issues to report.

Atomic Polish & Nailart

I was given the opportunity to review a new to me brand that just launched on February 28. All the colors you see here and more are available at the Atomic Polish shop.

Pd (Palladium)
a teal creme nail polish.

Not just any teal cream though, this one is buttery and easy to apply. 2 coats shown with topcoat.

AU (Gold)
a clear base filled with metallic gold micro flakes.

What a vibrant and sparkly polish, it stamps really well too. Shown is one coat polished and the second coat sponged on to avoid a stroked finish.

Palladium, Carbon, and Silver watermarbled over Silver. The spread is small for the two creams, but they still work well for this!

Ghost Train
a forest green jelly base full of colorful flakies and a pink to gold magnetic effect.
I've shown it below in two coats, both magnetized and not. It is crazy how different this polish looks, I did a double take and wondered if I had labeled my images wrong! But nope, this is just one polish.

Not magnetized is first, look at that green shift!

Magnetized with a Masura bar magnet. The trick to getting a tight line is to magnetize as soon as the polish is applied to each nail. It takes a little more time to do them one by one like that, but so worth it! I can't get over how duochromey it looks!

Day Tripper
a periwinkle holographic with bright blue to green shifting shimmer, a mix of holographic glitters and shimmers, and iridescent flakies.
My favorite of the trio. It shifts so much that it keeps you guessing what color it actually is! Shown in two coats below.
