Family Secrets | Northern Star Polish March PPU

Painted Fingertips | Northern Star Polish - Family Secrets

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! (more…)

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! (more…)

Swatch – Supernatural Lacquer Como se Llama-corn?

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Supernatural Lacquer Como se Llamacorn?

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: (more…)

Hi everyone!

January’s Polish Pickup is rapidly approaching and today I have this month’s Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer polish to share with you. I’ve posted about Polish Pickup a couple of times before, but in case you’re not familiar with it yet, this is a monthly pop-up nail polish shop with a new theme each month. January’s theme is Crystals & Gemstones, and at this point dozens of makers are participating with their own themed polishes, cuticle oils, nail decals, etc. All of the products are available through a pre-order on the Polish Pickup site from 5-8 January, and you can join the Facebook Group for more swatches and updates on coming months.

The Digital Dozen Does My Home – Snowy Winters in Minnesota

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is ‘my home’. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to participate every day this week, as I am out of town at a conference and didn’t get time to finish all 5 nail art looks. I will have a couple to share, though, and you can check out the other Digital Dozen member’s blogs for more nail art looks this week! We also just had a few new members join the group – I think most are only starting next month, but we might have a couple of new faces joining in this month already! (more…)

Supermoon Lacquer – Party Monarch

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

Hi everyone!

By now you’ve probably heard of Polish Pickup – I’ve shared a couple of swatches from previous Polish Pickup themes. If not, it’s a monthly group theme with an ever-increasing number of makers joining in to each create a single polish to fit the theme. December’s theme is ‘Holidays around the world’ and each maker interprets this and finds whatever inspiration they would like to create their polish. All of the polishes for the month are then available on the Polish Pickup site – this round’s polishes can be purchased from 1 December to 4 December. It’s a great way to get to try a variety of brands and all of the polishes that are being created are stunning! To make the whole process more interactive, you can also vote on what themes you would like to see in coming months. More details are available in the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook group. (more…)

Supermoon Lacquer: The Hound of Hades

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Supermoon Lacquer The Hound of Hades

Hi everyone!

Have you heard about Polish Pickup yet? If you’ve been paying attention to my blog, you have – I swatched a couple of Northern Star Polish contributions to Polish Pickup in the past. This was an idea that was started a few months ago to get various polish makers together, each creating their own polish to fit a certain theme. Each month there is a new theme and all of the polishes created for that theme are available together on one site during a brief pre-order. It is a great way to try out a variety of brands!

I made my first Polish Pickup purchase during the month of October. The theme was Monsters & Mythical creatures and there were a couple of polishes I just couldn’t pass up! Today I have one of those I purchased to share with you – Supermoon Lacquer The Hound of Hades. (more…)
