Polish Pickup: Guilty Pleasures

The theme this month for Polish Pickup is Guilty Pleasures. Launching May 7 at 10a Central through Monday, 11p Central. A lot of brands have offerings this month, and I have some of them to show you!

Alter Ego Get Yer Red Hot Dog Here
An almost velvety looking metallic red
Inspired by the original hot dog cart saying, Get your red hots here!

In love with this polish. I don't think I've worn or swatched anything like it in the 12 years I have been blogging. If you love reds, you need this one. Shown in two coats with topcoat.

KBShimmer Everything is A-Bouquet
A deep, grape-purple jelly nail polish. A strong green to blue shimmer accents the purple hue, showing off a vibrant indigo blue in lower lighting. In brighter lighting, the green glimmers and shifts at angles into gold and royal blue
Inspired by fresh flowers that often mark life’s special moments

The jelly base had a reddish violet hue on first coat and morphed to a grapey purple on the second. The shimmer is insanely vibrant and shifty - totally love this polish!

KBShimmer Freshly Blended
A sweet and tropical medley of fresh berries, cantaloupe, and lychee. Sweet sugarcane and vanilla orchid round out the scent. Swirls of cream and orange colors topped with a hint of biodegradable glitter.
Inspired by freshly blended beverages served at a tropical getaway.

This scent is diffcult to describe! It is refreshing, sweet and creamy at the same time. I enjoy KBShimmer's scrubs moisturizing oils, it's a one minute mani in a jar!

Lynb Designs Surreal Estate
A green to blue to purple shifting magnetic multichrome with green to blue to purple to pink shifting UCC flakies and holo flakies
Inspired by Jenalyn's love of all things house hunting and her obsession with stalking houses on Zillow and Realtor.
cap 300

Like little galaxies right on your nails! Such a pretty magnetic. Shown in two coats with topcoat.

Nevermind A Forbidden Ride
A black polish packed with so much chrome and holo flake you won't be able to stop staring at your nails. (comes with standard brush, wide brushes can be purchased separately)
Inspiration: The black and chrome harley from EB Slayer's book "The Bearded Lumberjack"

Definitely an edgy polish and I totally get the inspiration when looking at this polish. Ride or die! Shown in two coats with both matte and glossy topcoats.

The Soapy Chef Does This Coffee Make Me Look Alive?
This spa manicure treatment is a combo scrub and rich moisturizing mask. Rejuvenate your skin, leaving it soft and smooth after just one use.
Inspired by the best guilty pleasure of all - coffee!
Scented like roasted coffee, aromatic cocoa, sweet cream, vanilla, herbaceous tobacco, almond and burnt sugar.
cap 120

Super sweet, creamy and coffee - this reminds me of a Starbucks Frappuccino. The scent is long lasting after rinsing too! The butter is solid in the jar and quickly melts on warm skin and the exfoliant is very gentle. Quite a luxurious spa-like treatment.
