Polish Pickup: May 2019 The 1980's

The May Polish Pick Up theme is 1980's! Launch is 5/3 at 10am Central. All of the brands have great offerings this month, and I have six of those to share with you!




CbL went like totally 80's with the classic Valley Girl. Inspired by Julie's penchant for wearing pink and lilac and the sweats Leah Ann just had to have that outfit she wore while talking to Randy. Yes, she bought the same outfit and was like totally tubular.

Colors By Llarowe I'm SO Sure!
a soft pink crelly base with lavender shimmer and blue to purple Aurora shimmer. This shade will not gag you with a spoon fer sure!
No Cap

I love how this pinkish shade leans purpley; it's a perfectly blended best of both shades. Quite a unique color!

For May, Meagan was inspired by one of her absolute favorite 80’s movies. Her dad used to watch this movie on repeat and to this day whenever Danger Zone comes on they sing it together. She has such awesome memories of this movie so it only felt right to make a Top Gun Inspired polish!

Ethereal Danger Zone
a bright and deep purpley base with very strong red to gold and green shimmer

You guys. This is the polish you've been waiting for. :)

Who remembers Sweet Secrets!?! This super fun solar polish inspired by them will be headed your way from Heather's Hues.

Heather's Hues Friends From Gems
a colorless to purple solar polish packed with blue/indigo aurora shimmer, iridescent purple-pink flakes, silver holo microflakes and micro-shreds, lavender holo microglitters, and lavender, neon purple and pink microflakes.
No cap

I used a UV light to make it change, as it is dark when I swatch. The macro shot is how it would look in full sun, super vibrant! I also took a photo in the dark so you could see how it would glow at an event with black lights!

Illyrian was inspired by Predator! This movie has a lot of memories behind it for Vanessa and her brother growing up and they still quote this movie all the time! Vanessa is super excited that her brother will also be doing custom art for the bottom labels!

Illyrian Predator
A dark teal green base with a soft blue/purple magnetic pull, scattering of micro holo flakes and iridescent flakes in aqua/purple, green/purple & green/teal/blue.

Such a deep polish with beautiful magnetic shimmer. I love the brush, it makes the polish so easy to apply! I've used a Masura bar magnet to magnetize. Shown with 2 coats, no top coat.

As a kid, Christy loved colorful toys. She wanted the pony with rainbow hair, Cheer Bear with his colorful tummy, and of course, Rainbow Brite! Rainbow Brite helped the Color Kids spread color throughout the world with color crystals and star sprinkles.

Kbshimmer The Brite Stuff
Inspired by the colorful Rainbow Brite. A bright blue thermal base sets off a rainbow of small glitters which really pop when the base turns a lighter blue, and then white, with heat. Each bottle will come with a bag of star sprinkles so that you, too, can help bring color to the world!
No Cap

I placed the starts on top of wet polish with a wax tool, then topcoated. (there are still water droplets on my nail in the macro shot, sorry about that!)

KBShimmer Wacky Watermelon Popping Bath Powder
When Christy first had Pop Rocks as a kid, she was blown away. That sweet yet tart flavor and fun popping experience in your mouth made for one amazing treat! KBShimmer's Popping Bath Powder is inspired by Pop Rocks. They started with pure luxurious cocoa butter and then added moisturizing coconut milk powder for a silky, skin-softening soak. Using the provided scoop, add to water and listen to the magic popping sound while the cocoa butter melts into the warm water. The sweet and tart watermelon fragrance scents the inviting foam just waiting to moisturize your skin! Use 1-2 scoops as a hand or foot soak, or add 3-4 scoops from the 9.5 oz bag for a decadent bath. Does not contain Pop Rocks candy.

In my photo, that bowl is a Corelle bowl, second from the smallest size they offer. I put less than an inch of water in the bowl, filled the scoop, and then gently sat the scoop in the water. Just look at how that foams up and fills nearly half the bowl! It is insane. And I took a shot of the bottom of the holo bag, because why not!?

The scent is strong and deliciously sweet watermelon, almost candy like. The foam is luxurious and plentiful and my skin felt really soft afterward. The milks in the bath powder are likely what do that...And it pops! What a fun lighthearted feel for bath time!

Night Owl Lacquer chose the movie Dirty Dancing. Lindsay says, "I can't even tell you many times I watched this. My best friend and I watched it at every sleepover, sometimes more than once!"

Night Owl Lacquer It's a Feeling, a Heartbeat
a delicate blush tinted base filled with two different aurora shimmers that make it glow.

The shimmer is difficult to capture in photos, as the camera isn't good at detecting monochrome shimmer polishes, especially lighter shades. This is definitely apparent and almost blingy in person though. Don't miss this pink, it is perfection.
