Polish Pickup January | Makers 1-C

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

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to be one of the two official bloggers for January’s Polish Pickup! January’s theme is Mythology, and the shop will run from 4-7 January. I was really looking forward to this theme, knowing that many polish makers would come up with unique and interesting interpretations. Although that would be the case with any theme, we’re really seeing month after month of phenomenal polishes in PPU!

I am blogging the first half of the alphabet this month, with makers 1-Le. Sarah from 25 Sweetpeas is doing makers Li-Z, and her post is already up. I have divided my half into two parts to make the posts a little more manageable, so today I will be sharing the polishes from makers 1-C. I’ll start off with the numbers, so 1850 Artisan Polish!

Hi everyone!

It’s the fifth and final day of the Digital Dozen does holo! For today’s look, I’ve done something very fast but still lovely and still with plenty of holo. I needed to get this final look done quickly, so I went with some stamping used a few of my Color Club Halo Hues.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Holo! As always, this week is flying by. I feel like Digital Dozen weeks go faster than any other time! So far this week, I’ve shared a holo needle drag, some holo-on-holo rose stamping, and a Christmassy holo water marble.

Today I’ve kept the Christmassy theme going, although I’ve used a not-quite-traditional colour scheme. I really like the look I’ve done for today and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of The Digital Dozen does Holo, and it’s also Water Marble Wednesday! I love it when I’m able to get a water marble out of the Digital Dozen themes. This month, with the broad theme, it wasn’t very difficult to figure out a marble – I just had to pick a few holographic shades that marbled well and looked good together.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This month’s theme is Holo. It’s a pretty broad theme, so I’m sure we’ll be seeing a little of everything this week from Digital Dozen members. It was interesting for me to focus on using one particular finish of polish for all of my looks this week. I found myself searching through my drawers for all of my holo options, then seeing which shades would go well together and what types of nail art would work well with them.

Textured Roses

Hi everyone!

Back in September, I unfortunately missed Digital Dozen week. I really liked the theme, which was ‘recreating your first blog posts’, and I was so sorry that I wasn’t able to take part! I did have one look that was ready to go and so I am finally sharing it with you today. It’s a simple yet effective textured rose look.

Hi everyone!

I have a simple but lovely look to share with you today. I don’t use nail decals or stencils very often, but I used some here together with two beautiful polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer to create a look that would be perfect for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or really any time.

Glowing Abstract Stamping

Hi everyone!

Today I have a look to share where I used some of my multichrome nail powder in an interesting way. Since some of these powders look so different over a black vs a white base, I realised that I could create a cool effect by simply starting with a base of black and white stamping, and then adding the powder over everything.
