Polish Pickup: March 2020

The theme this month for Polish Pickup is Ancient History! Launch is March 6 at 10am Central through March 9, 11pm Central. Tons of brands have awesome offerings this month, and I have some of them to share with you!

xoxoJen's swatch of Polish Pickup: March 2020

Blush In The Beginning
A pale silver-toned lavender nail polish with a strong linear holographic flame, reminiscent of a flash of light.
No cap

The last three photos are taken under a different light to demonstrate just how holo this polish can be! It's very striking! If I were to rank the intensity of it, I'd put it at the high end. Two coats shown, with topcoat.

KBShimmer Sól What?
A soft purple jelly base accented by color shifting flakes that shift from orange to gold and green. Micro holographic flakes reflect throughout.
The polish is inspired by the artwork based on the Norse story of Sól and Mani.
No cap

Shown in two coats on its own and in one coat over black. What a stunning polish! The formula is smooth for as many sparkly things as are in it!

KBShimmer Pomegranate Scrub
Inspired by the Greek mythology story of Hades and Persephone.
The pomegranate scrub features a hint of musk, with tropical notes of pineapple and guava for a bold pomegranate scent.

When I opened the jar, I saw swirls of pinks, reds and white and when I sniffed, I smelled the most creamy smelling pomegranate blend I've ever smelled. It's dreamy, even if you're not fond of pomegranate. The guava note really rounds it out and softens the pom. I promise, this is not sharp or tart at all - it's creamy and fruity and just delicious smelling!

Lollipop Posse The Sister Guardians
A sky blue crelly packed with two Aurora shimmers that shift vibrant pink, gold, and green.
Inspired by the Zorya sisters of ancient Slavic folklore. They are often referred to as the Auroras, and are the guardians of the morning and evening skies.
cap 220 - 215 US / 5 UK

I am super in love with this polish, this exact vibrant shade of blue and shimmer combo has been floating around in my "wish it existed" list for quite some time now.
I love seeing redbud trees and cherry trees in full bloom with their pink blossoms and vibrant green leaves in springtime and this polish is all that! I've worn it for a few days and people have noticed it and commented (that just doesn't happen to me, like ever) ok, enough mushy/nostalgia - I'm showing this here in three coats with topcoat.

Nail Hoot Golden Mask Dynasty
Inspired by a photo Brandie took when she attended The Golden Mask Dynasty (金面王朝) show. The story tells how a queen who wears a golden mask creates a splendid dynasty through wisdom, tolerance, trust and boundless love.
Cap: 280

A flood of green/orange/blue iridescent moon flakes fill the neon pink pearlescent base. Shown in 2 coats. Also works well in one coat as a topper over red toned creams, dark pinks and purples.

Wowza! This color packs a punch! Definitely eye catching and the intense sparkle going on just adds to that! Shown in two coats with topcoat.

  1. Beautiful swatches! I likely would have given the Lollipop selection a pass, but your glowing review has got me giving it a second look. It is about that time of year when the cherry blossoms start coming out-- and on a day with a blue sky... stunning! And I am totally seeing that in this polish. :)

    1. Thank you so much for visiting and for the comment! I'm glad to hear you're thinking about this one! The shimmer is very vibrant and noticeable in person.
      I feel like my still shots don't fully do it justice. I'd encourage you to take a chance, and give it a try! You can always gift it away and make someone happy if you decide not to keep it.
