June Polish Pick Up: Video Games (part 1)


The June Polish Pick Up (PPU) features video game inspired products! How fun is that? The pre-order time frame is June 1st - 4th, after that they will not be available at PPU.

I am an official blogger for June's Polish Pick Up and I am sharing products from the letters Li through Z. I've reviewed them by day received, rather than alphabetical so that I am not holding up a review waiting for one or two polishes that fall in the alphabetical range. That said, this is everything I have swatched as of the time of this post and accounts for half of what I'm reviewing. The rest are coming, but it is going to be a bit. :)

Lollipop Posse
The Sending inspired by Final Fantasy X
A magnetic rose-gold/pink/gold/green multichrome with silver holo flakes, green/blue/purple UCC flakes, and purple/red/pink UCC mega flakes. The magnetic shift is subtle, but gorgeous. When applied, the magnet brings up the rose-gold shimmer and adds a dimensional shift to the color
Free bar magnet included with polish!
no cap
$12.50

The first shot of each pose is not magnetized, the second shot of each pose is magnetized.
Although it is difficult to see in photos, the magnet brings out more of a pinky coral shade than when not magnetized. The magnetized pigment is glowy and shimmery just like other magnetic shimmers. Two coats with topcoat, formula was good.

Ribbits Stickits
Water Slide Decal Set inspired by video games
Pack of two full size decal sheets, clear backing
cap 150 sets
$10.50

I have never used water slide decals before and I have to say these were really easy to apply. Instructions are included and I discovered that holding onto the decal while it is in the warm water is easier than dropping it in and fishing for it to get it out. :)

Vibrant Vinyls
Peach Beach Fast & Hard Quick Dry Topcoat inspired by Princess Peach
Free bracelet included
The scent is a tropical blend of juicy peach, sweet papaya, and luscious mango
cap 250
$6.99

I've used this topcoat on the polishes shown after this and I really like how quickly it hardens up. After it dries, the scent is fruity and bright. My blogger pack came with vinyl samples, so I've added an accent here with one of them. :)

Stella Chroma

Slightly sweet, very fruity and while the coconut is there it is not overpowering; a very well balanced fragrance.
