Blush for Polish Pick Up: Lasso The Moon

The theme for April's Polish Pick Up is Across the Universe - Planets & Galaxies.
Victoria from Blush created a lunar-ific polish! Her inspiration is "It's A Wonderful Life" - specifically the scene where George tells Mary that he'll lasso the moon for her.
*While this is a black and white movie, she went with her own dreamy idea of the moon to go along with George's endearing sentiment of capturing the moon for Mary.

Lasso The Moon
A soft silvery-taupe base with a violet-blue shimmer, holographic pigment and holo flakes.

The formula is fantastic and almost a one coater, but I used two in the photos. The Blush brush is amazing as always. If you have not tried Blush you need to just for the brush! What better time than now with the beautifully glowy shimmery polish!? I don't think I have seen one quite as glowy as this. Lit from within!

Lasso The Moon will be available 04/06/2018 – 04/09/2018 at https://www.polishpickup.com

Tux Let's Dew Spring
Medium Teal with green holo glitter and contrasting purple shimmer.

This is much more of a teal than my camera was able to capture. The polish is not this blue. :)

All photos show two coats with topcoat. The formula was fluid on all but the Ever After polish, I found it to be thick with drag in some spots, so I added a few drops of thinner for my second coat.

I hope you've enjoyed the review and photos. Will you be picking up the April Showers box?

The theme for April's Polish Pick Up is Across the Universe - Planets & Galaxies. Chrissy from Turtle Tootsie created a magnetic galaxy in a bottle! It even comes with a magnet!

Bolide
a dark chocolate brown magnetic polish that shimmers a light brown when using the included magnet to bring the pigment to the surface. It’s accented with silver holographic micro glitter. Photos show two coats, and the formula was great!

a large meteor that explodes in the atmosphere.

Girly Bits for Polish Pick Up: Felt With The Heart

The theme for April's Polish Pick Up is Across the Universe - Planets & Galaxies. Pam created a polish inspired by The Little Prince which is a lovely story about learning the importance of looking beneath the surface to find the real truth and meaning of things. It teaches us to see with our heart instead of just with our eyes.


Felt With The Heart
a sparkling turquoise foil-ish finish, with an abundance of holographic pigments, gold flakes, blue flakes, and green-blue-gold colour shifting flakes. I wore two coats with topcoat and Pam is so right, definitely foil like!

Felt With The Heart will be available for pre-order at Polish Pick Up April 6-9. This polish does have a cap, but the amount has not yet been determined.

Have I mentioned that green is my second favorite color? It is, and this one is that! Reminiscent of antique glassware and how it has that depth to it. Two coats, perfect formula.

Watermarbling fun with the creams! They spread over the water perfectly and with very little effort! I did not use filtered water - it was straight from the tap. I stuck my hand under the faucet until it no longer felt cold and then I filled my little Oui! yogurt glass and got busy making the bullseyes! For two nails, I changed up the order of colors and it gives an entirely different looking marble! So in love with these!



The whole set will be launched at Indie Shop Atlanta on March 24th followed by the Turtle Tootsie website on Sunday March 25th at noon.

Leesha's Lacquer: Bunny Loaf

Leesha's Lacquer created Bunny Loaf for her monthly OOAK for March and it is a charity polish!
The polish launches on March 21st at https://www.etsy.com/shop/LeeshasLacquer

Bunny Loaf
a sky blue based polish with a dash of holo, color shifting glitters with turquoise shimmer and rainbow flakes. The turquoise shimmer sometimes gives the polish a greenish look in warmer lighting, pretty cool! I wore two coats with topcoat and the formula was great!

xoxoJen's swatch of Leesha's Lacquer: Bunny Loaf

$2 from every sale of Bunny Loaf will be donated to a "bunderful" non profit called Midwest Rabbit Rescue & Re-home, which is based in Michigan. This is a no-kill rescue that is entirely operated by volunteers and donations. Leesha is directly working with this rescue so they are aware of this special polish event.

kbshimmer for Polish Pick Up: Hubble'd Together

Hubble, the world's first large space-based optical telescope, has taken many beautiful pictures of the planets and stars. kbshimmer's April Polish Pick Up contribution pays homage to the Hubble with this polish based on a photo it took of Jupiter, its three moons and their shadows.

xoxoJen's swatch of kbshimmer Hubble'd Together


Hubble'd Together starts with a teal leaning mint base that is loaded with holographic micro flakes for shimmer and shine. Unicorn flakes echo the pastel shades of the colorful inspiration photo, while glow powder gives this polish a green toned glow in the dark. Shown here in 3 coats and I have to say, this is the best GITD formula I have ever used. It is super smooth and gel like, no grit at all.

Christy suggests layering over black for a unique flake filled look.

xoxoJen's swatch of kbshimmer Hubble'd Together

Glow in the dark, flake, jelly, teal, holographic, space inspired - what a perfect combo!
