Polish Pickup: Flora and Fauna

xoxoJen's swatch of Polish Pickup: Flora and Fauna


1850 Sedum
a thermal that transitions from softest pale green to a blue-green that has a blue multichrome effect on the edges. It sparkles with scattered holographic microflakes and also has multichrome flakes that shift from emerald green to gold, rose gold, and pink.
Cap: 150

No topcoat used, as this has a semi-gloss/satin type finish that I wanted to show.

kbshimmer Let It Beetle
Inspired by the multichromatic Cetonia aurata beetle.
Starting with a bright gold shimmer, this sparkly shade quickly shifts to a bold green. Hues of blue and aqua dance on the edges and in some lighting, the gold gives you subtle hints of soft pink. This shade is best in 2 coats or 1 coat over a darker cream.

kbshimmer Freesia Sugar Scrub
starts with that distinctly bright and floral freesia note followed with hints of Muguet (Lily of the Valley) and white musk that deepen the tone. The scrub is a crisp white with pink and purple swirls. Bring a little springtime into your atmosphere!

Such beautiful polishes and delicious smelling scrub! Let's give it up for these brands, shall we?

Each polish is shown in two coats with glossy topcoat except where noted. Formula for each was good, as I typically find with indie polishes.
What are you picking up this month?
