Polish Pickup:Urban Legends (part 1)

Blush The Blue Lady
Inspired by a local legend from Story Inn in Story, Indiana. It is rumored that she haunts one of the rooms at the inn and turns on a blue light.

A silvery blue linear holographic nail polish with a shifting blue to purple shimmer, holographic flakes and small blue holographic glitters.
No Cap

Are you nails dripping in diamonds? The Blue Lady is super sparkly, holo and look at that shimmer! Shown is two coats with topcoat. I typically paint fairly heavy coats, for thinner coats, three may be needed to eliminate vnl.

KBShimmer Hidden Agenda
Inspired by the urban legends of Area 51 and the rumors of hidden aliens and spaceship sightings. It is so ingrained in our culture that there's an event planned this year for people to storm the area and find the truth.
No Cap

Hidden Agenda
A matted finished, thermal, glow in the dark polish with a slate blue base when cold and dusty pink when warm. The polish is packed with shimmer, an alien shade of green. In the dark, the polish can glow in a range of yellows to greens and sometimes both if the thermal look is activated.

What a fun and unique polish! I cannot recall having seen a polish that is both thermal and glows different colors depending on its temperature, in the dark. Truly unique and a first. Two coats, no topcoat to show off it's matte effect.

KBShimmer Pumpkin Patch Sugar Scrub
Inspired by It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. A tale where Linus believed that The Great Pumpkin would fly around and visit children, and leave toys for children who believed.

Pumpkin Patch starts with sweet notes of baked pumpkin and is accented with spicy clove and warm vanilla. Cinnamon and nutmeg combine with deeper woody notes and hints of incense. This is not your standard pumpkin!
No Cap

Like Christy describes, definitely different from other pumpkin scented items I've sniffed. This is warm and baked pumpkin, with a dusting of spice. Usually, I'm off put by strong cinnamon but this is just the right balance for my nose to love. :) Outside that, Christy's scrubs soften my skin really nicely. I use them primarily for my hands, and in winter for my legs. The scrub helps seal the moisture in my skin to combat those harsh dry winter winds.

Lollipop Posse Victorian Oddities
Inspired by the haunted Victorian homes of Cape May, New Jersey. Specifically, the parlor in the haunted Emlen Physick Estate.

A bright turquoise crelly with gold flake accents, topped off with gold/green shifting Aurora shimmer.
No Cap

A turquoise lagoon swimming in a galaxy of flakes, this polish is one you won't want to miss! Giving a nod to summer, and perhaps a prelude to winter. Shown is two coats with topcoat.
