Polish Pickup January | Makers D-Le

Some items in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

I’m back with the rest of the Polish Pickup shades for January! The Polish Pickup store will be open from 4-7 January to get all of these shades. I’ve already shared the A-C brands and Sarah has posted about the Li-Z brands on her blog. Today I have the D-Le brands and there are some real beauties in here! I’ll start things off with a brand that’s new to me and to Polish Pickup, Danglefoot Nail Polish.

Danglefoot Nail Polish

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Danglefoot Sword of the Rightful King - January PPU

Danglefoot Nail Polish Sword of the Rightful King is inspired by King Arthur. It is described as a grey to purple thermal with pink/green aurora shimmer.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Danglefoot Sword of the Rightful King - January PPU

Well, isn’t that lovely? I really like both purple and blue polish, so a thermal that shifts between the two is sure to appeal to me. The official description says grey to purple but it reads more as icy blue (warm) to purple (cold), perhaps because how packed it is with that gorgeous icy blue shimmer.

In these pictures, I’ve used two coats of Sword of the Rightful King plus top coat. The formula was great and it was easy to get a thermal shift. Here it is in its fully cold state:

Sword of the Rightful King will be priced at $12.50 per bottle. There will be 100 bottles available.

Dollish Polish

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dollish Polish Make Like a Tree and Leaf - January PPU

Dollish Polish Make Like a Tree and Leaf is inspired by a Dryad (tree nymph). This polish is described as a stunning duochrome, flashing from sage to a rose pink, and loaded with holo micro flakes in shades of silver, carnation pink, and magenta pink, and UCC emerald/olive/magenta micro flakes.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dollish Polish Make Like a Tree and Leaf - January PPU

I think sage is a good colour descriptor! Such an earthy, brownish green. It’s packed with magenta-gold flakes, holo microflakes, and green shimmer. In these images, I’ve used two coats plus top coat. I was very happy with the formula on this polish.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dollish Polish Make Like a Tree and Leaf macro - January PPU

I really like how earthy shades look on me, and of course all the little flakes in this one are lovely!

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dollish Polish Make Like a Tree and Leaf - January PPU

Make Like a Tree and Leaf will be priced at $13 for a bottle and will not be capped.

Dreamland Lacquer

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dreamland Lacquer Release the Kraken! - January PPU

Dreamland Lacquer Release the Kraken! is inspired by the kraken, a massive sea beast most closely resembling a giant octopus or squid. The kraken has its roots in Norwegian folklore, and was said to inhabit the water off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. This polish is described as a bright cobalt blue jelly with shifty iridescent flakies, shimmer, and holo flakes.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dreamland Lacquer Release the Kraken! - January PPU

The description is pretty accurate on this one – it’s a vibrant blue that shifts a little purple, packed with iridescent flakies, holo microflakes, and shimmer. I used three thin coats plus top coat, and had no issues with the formula.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dreamland Lacquer Release the Kraken! macro - January PPU

I think this one would probably look amazing matte, as well!

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Dreamland Lacquer Release the Kraken! - January PPU

Release the Kraken! will be priced at $12 per bottle. This polish is uncapped.

Ethereal Lacquer

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Ethereal Lacquer Grímnismál - January PPU

Ethereal Lacquer Grímnismál is inspired by Huginn and Muginn from Norse mythology. It is described as a smoky amethyst with a vibrant red to green shimmer.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Ethereal Lacquer Grímnismál - January PPU

This is such a unique polish, and it’s definitely ethereal! The base is almost grey, but it’s so packed with the coppery red shimmer that it reads as more of a taupe. The shimmer shifts strongly to green, with a little gold coming out at the right angles.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Ethereal Lacquer Grímnismál macro - January PPU

I’m a sucker for shifty and contrasting shimmers, so I love this one! The formula was great. I used three thin coats plus top coat in these images.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Ethereal Lacquer Grímnismál - January PPU

Grímnismál will be available for $12.50 per bottle, and will be uncapped.

Fair Maiden Mnemosyne is inspired by Mnemosyne, and is described as an earthy multichrome that shifts amber-olive-spruce with aurora shimmers, holo glitters, and iridescent color shifting flakes pink-gold-green.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fair Maiden Mnemosyne - January PPU

Well this is a gorgeous one! Lots of holo glitter, lots of pink-gold flakies, and that delightful brown-green shift. Here I used two easy coats plus top coat.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fair Maiden Mnemosyne macro - January PPU

I like Fair Maiden more every time I try another one of their polishes! This one is just perfect for me.

Fanchromatic Nails

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fanchromatic Nails Great Horned God - January PPU

Fanchromatic Nails Great Horned God is inspired by the Celtic god Cernunnos. This was a god of wild places. The polish contains earth tones to represent his furry, foresty side, and blue in homage to woad, a blue dye that the Picts used as face and body adornment. Great Horned God is described as a cinnamon brown crelly with lots of blue, bronze & gold glitter in an array of sizes.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fanchromatic Nails Great Horned God - January PPU

Great Horned God is a warm brown base with large gold hex glitters, medium blue, turquoise and copper hex glitters, small glitters in all of those colours, and a coppery shimmer. In these images I am showing 3 coats plus top coat. I was very happy with the formula on this one.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fanchromatic Nails Great Horned God macro - January PPU

I’ve really been loving all of the earthy shades in this month’s Polish Pickup! This is such a great shade of brown, and the right way to do a glitter crelly in my opinion.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fanchromatic Nails Great Horned God - January PPU

Great Horned God will be uncapped and available at $12 per bottle.

Femme Fatale

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Femme Fatale Ouranos - January PPU

Femme Fatale Ouranos is inspired by Ouranos, the primal god of the heavens from Greek mythology. It is described as a berry base with blue-purple shifting magnetic effect, and scattered holographic silver glitters.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Femme Fatale Ouranos - January PPU

Ouranos is such a pretty colour – it contains so much blue shimmer that it becomes kind of an icy fuchsia. It’s also filled with those holo glitters. Here, I’ve used three thin coats of Ouranos with top coat. The formula was good and easy to work with.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Femme Fatale Ouranos macro - January PPU

Unfortunately, I wasn’t aware that Ouranos was a magnetic polish at the time that I swatched it, so I didn’t apply a magnet to it. I did try it on a test nail once I found out, and found the magnetic effect to be extremely subtle. I’d look for more swatches if you’re interested in seeing how the magnetic effect could change the look of the polish.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Femme Fatale Ouranos - January PPU

Ouranos will be available at $14 per bottle, and will not be capped.

Fiendish Fancies Weaver’s Wrath is inspired by Athena and Arachne. It is described as an olive metallic glitter bomb with green and black glitter and multi-coloured flakes.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fiendish Fancies Weaver's Wrath - January PPU

I see a tarnished gold base filled with small flakies in green-gold and orange-magenta.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fiendish Fancies Weaver's Wrath macro- January PPU

The formula on this polish was great. It went on smoothly and easily, and flakies distributed themselves well. Here I am showing 3 coats plus top coat.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fiendish Fancies Weaver's Wrath - January PPU

Weaver’s Wrath will be available at $12 per bottle. There will be 100 bottles available.

Flirtin’ Cosmetics

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Flirtin' Cosmetics Sacrificial Flame - January PPU

Flirtin’ Cosmetics Sacrificial Flame is inspired by Hestia. It is described as a red base with orange & red holo glitters.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Flirtin' Cosmetics Sacrificial Flame - January PPU

Sacrificial flame is a vibrant vermillion jelly base with plenty of iridescent holo glitter. It’s a nice squishy, jelly base that really lets the glitter shine. In these images, I used 3 coats plus top coat. This polish had a great formula.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Flirtin' Cosmetics Sacrificial Flame macro - January PPU

As you can see in the macro, the jelly base means I still had a tiny bit of visible nail line. I was fine with this amount, personally.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Flirtin' Cosmetics Sacrificial Flame - January PPU

Sacrifical Flame will be priced at $11 per bottle, and there will be 75 bottles available.

Geekish Glitter Lacquer

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Geekish Glitter Journey to the Underworld - January PPU

Geekish Glitter Lacquer Journey to the Underworld is inspired by the River Styx. It is a glow in the dark polish, described as a black green shimmery base that has green glow in the dark pigment with copper holo microglitter and gold-silver UCC flakies.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Geekish Glitter Journey to the Underworld - January PPU

It’s like a dark night in the woods, with mysterious sounds and glowing eyes looking out at you! This is a green so dark it’s almost black, with loads of green shimmer, copper glitter, and gold flakes. I used two coats plus top coat, and the formula was good and easy to work with. This polish does dry with a slight texture, so you may need a second coat of top coat if you like an absolutely smooth finish.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Geekish Glitter Journey to the Underworld macro- January PPU

The glow in the dark effect was a little subtle, but definitely there and I was able to at least kind of capture it. I loved that this was such a dark polish, and then had the glow in the dark – it was unexpected for me in such a dark shade.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Geekish Glitter Journey to the Underworld - January PPU

Journey to the Underworld will be priced at $11 per bottle and there will be 75 bottles available.

Grace-full Nail Polish

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Grace-full Wind and Rainbows - January PPU

Grace-full Wind and Rainbows is inspired by the god of winds and goddess of rainbows tale. It is described as a tri-thermal linear holo that is light pink/mauve – dusty mauve – purple with UCC flakies and aurora shimmer in pink.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Grace-full Wind and Rainbows - January PPU

A thermal shifting through shades of purple is another sure winner for me! Not sure if I feel like light purple or dark purple polish? Well how about both? 🙂

Wind and Rainbows shifts from a pale lavender (warm) to deep purple (cold) and is packed with colourful flakies and holo.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Grace-full Wind and Rainbows macro - January PPU

In these pictures, I used two easy coats of Wind and Rainbows plus top coat. Here it is in its fully warm state:

Heather’s Hues

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Heather's Hues The Triple Goddess - January PPU

Heather’s Hues The Triple Goddess is inspired by Diana. It is described as a deep indigo blue jelly filled with gold holo and flakes and a mix of multichrome flakes in gold/bronze/silver and copper/green/blue/violet.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Heather's Hues The Triple Goddess - January PPU

The Triple Goddess has such a gorgeous mix of flakes! I see a deep blue base, packed with blue-green and pink-gold flakies, holo glitter, and coppery microflakies.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Heather's Hues The Triple Goddess macro- January PPU

Those flakes look beautiful against the deep blue base! The formula on this polish was great. In these pictures, I’ve used 2 coats of The Triple Goddess plus top coat.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Heather's Hues The Triple Goddess - January PPU

The Triple Goddess will be capped at 125 bottles, and priced at $12.50 per bottle.

Jior Couture

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Jior Couture Goddess Yemoja - January PPU

Jior Couture Goddess Yemoja is inspired by Yoruba goddess Yemoja, mother of all orishas. It is described as a blackened teal to blue multichrome holo with blue magnetic pull.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Jior Couture Goddess Yemoja - January PPU

This is a nice deep teal blue with lots of added holo. I used three thin coats plus top coat. It was a little sheer on the first coat, but built up well and had a good formula.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Jior Couture Goddess Yemoja macro - January PPU

I used a magnet after each coat and after the top coat. I found the magnetic effect to be very subtle. I can see it, but only because I know it’s there. To me, it’s not worth messing with a magnet for so subtle an effect; I’d just wear this like a regular polish.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Jior Couture Goddess Yemoja - January PPU

Goddess Yemoja will be priced at $11.50 per bottle, and will be uncapped.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - JReine Through Iris Eyes - January PPU

Jreine Through Iris Eyes is inspired by Iris, the goddess of rainbows. This polish is an OG Unicorn Pee topper polish, described as a pink/purple sheer jelly topper loaded with OG UP with red, gold, and green flakes and holo.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - JReine Through Iris Eyes - January PPU

This is just packed with flakes and shimmery goodness! For these photos, I used a base of Tip Top Kingfisher (a navy blue creme) and then added two coats of Through Iris Eyes and top coat.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - JReine Through Iris Eyes macro- January PPU

This polish looks very different depending on the base shade – check out some of the other swatches to see the range it’s capable of! It’s packed with iridescent flakies that give a fiery orange-red effect over this dark base, and shift green. It’s also packed with the red-green ‘unicorn pee’ shimmer. I used two coats to give an intense flake-packed effect, but this looks lovely in a single coat over a base polish as well.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - JReine Through Iris Eyes - January PPU

Through Iris Eyes will be available for $15 per bottle, and will be uncapped.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - KBShimmer Gaia - January PPU

What a beautiful blue! I love blue polish, and this one is such a good vibrant shade, and so packed with flakie goodness. I see a vibrant blue jelly base, lots of holo glitter, and iridescent blue-turquoise-purple and green-gold flakies.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - KBShimmer Gaia macro- January PPU

Doesn’t it look incredible close up? The formula was great, here I am showing 2 easy coats of Gaia plus top coat.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - KBShimmer Gaia - January PPU

This polish has a gorgeous deep purple base, absolutely packed with colourful flakies and tiny holo microflakes. The red shimmer comes out at the right angles and makes this polish nice and warm.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - KBShimmer Gaia macro - January PPU

Another great formula on this polish! It looked a little sheer on the first coat, but built up well on the second with flakies disributing themselves well. Here I am showing 2 coats plus top coat.

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Lemming Lacquer Lotus Eaters - January PPU
