Fair Maiden Cosmic Confection | Polish Pickup Swatch

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe it’s already Monday! This weekend went by far too fast. There’s just not enough time to get everything done! I hope that you enjoyed my drip marble theme week last week, I had a lot of fun with it and now we are back to regular programming.

At least I can brighten this Monday a little with some swatches of a gorgeous polish. Today I am sharing my pictures of Fair Maiden Cosmic Confection, which is their contribution for February’s Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup has exploded onto the indie scene over the past few months with its creative way of offering polish and other products from a huge variety of makers, all in one store. Each month, makers create a polish inspired by a theme voted on by the group members. February’s theme is Sugar Rush. There are a lot of polishes available, so if you’re interested in seeing more, I recommend joining the Facebook Group!

Family Secrets | Northern Star Polish March PPU

Hi everyone!

Can you believe that it’s already almost the end of February? In a couple of days, it’ll be March, and with March comes the books theme for Polish Pickup! The books theme was a long time coming, almost making it in over the past couple of months and then just being voted out. Finally, the books theme won, and I for one am really excited about it! I have been seeing a few books that I know and enjoy, and others that I haven’t read before – along with lots of pretty polish!

If Polish Pickup is new to you, here’s how it works: prior to each month’s Polish Pickup weekend, there is a period for nominations, and then voting for a theme. These are announced in the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook group, if you’d like to keep up with them there. Once a theme has been selected, participating makers all make a nail polish or other nail care and related items according to the theme. These are revealed in the weeks leading up to the pickup weekend. Finally, on the first weekend of the month, all of the items are available for purchase in one convenient shop. For March, the shop opens at 11 am EST on March 2 and is open for three days, until March 5. That is the only time that this nail polish is available! Enough talk – time for swatches!

Swatch: Northern Star Polish Shark Bite

The polish shown in this post was provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

When I first moved to Minnesota I looked up which indie polish brands were local to Minnesota. I saw Northern Star Polish but to my disappointment, they were on hiatus at the time. I am happy to say that they’re back! They made their return a couple of months ago and have been participating in the monthly Polish Pickup initiative. I was over the moon when Kristin, the maker behind Northern Star, approached me about swatching this month’s polish. So, here is my first ever Northern Star polish – Shark Bite!

The Digital Dozen Does Stamping | Plate BeautyBigBang 07

Hi everyone!

I’m still behind, but chugging along – today I have my 4th post of the Digital Dozen’s stamping week to share with you. So far this week, I’ve combined my posts with stamping plate and polish reviews – firstly plates BeautyBigBang10 and BeautyBigBang09, and then I shared stamped looks with the Moonflower Polish Spring collection. Today I am continuing the trend with a review of plate BeautyBigBang07.

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Basilisk

Hi everyone!

I managed to get my final look done for the Digital Dozen’s mythical creatures week, just one day late. Phew! So far this week, I’ve shared nail art looks inspired by dragons, fairies, phoenix, and unicorns. I had so much fun with this week’s theme, and honestly I think it’s been one of my best Digital Dozen weeks! The only look I didn’t absolutely LOVE was my unicorn one.

For today’s look, I needed to get something done in a hurry after my giant Moonflower stamping polish post set me a day behind. I looked through the pictures from the other Digital Dozen members this week and this basilisk look by Manis & Makeovers really stood out to me. My look turned out quite different from hers, but she definitely inspired me.

Swatch – Supernatural Lacquer Como se Llama-corn?

Hi everyone!

Well, we’ve made it through the first day of 2018! Let’s hope the year just keeps on getting better 🙂 Today I have a swatch from a new-to-me brand, Supernatural Lacquer! I’ve been eyeing their polishes for a while, and finally decided to try my first one during October’s Polish Pickup. That’s something that I really enjoy about Polish Pickup – it enables you to try just one polish from a new brand without having to pay for shipping multiple times. I’m really glad I tried this one! Let’s take a look:
