Contrary Polish – Cocoon Galaxy // Polish Pickup April 2018


Hi everyone! Today’s mani is from the last Polish Pickup earlier this month. If you’re not familiar with Polish Pickup, it’s a group of indie makers coming together around a central theme each month to offer exclusive items for one weekend. That is the condensed version, you can read all about how it works HERE. You can find a lot of variety too: polishes, wax melts, lotions and oils, jewelry, stamping plates plus more! Every month has different things. Get ready for a new sale weekend too, this weekend (May 4-7, 2018)  the website will be open and the theme will be The 90’s!

A great thing about Polish Pickup is you get charged a flat fee of $3 shipping within the US ($5 to Canada) no matter how many polishes you buy or how many orders you make throughout the weekend it’s open! If you place multiple orders, you will be refunded excess shipping charges later in the month when shipping starts.

April’s theme was ‘Across the Universe: Planets & Galaxies’.  I bought quite a few from April and this Contrary was the first one I chose to wear. If you like this from Contrary Polish, you can find her other polishes HERE. I am not affiliated with Polish Pickup or Contrary Polish.

Girly Bits Cosmetics – I Licked It, So It’s Mine // February 2018 Polish Pickup


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from the Polish Pickup back in February 2018.  The theme that month was Sugar Rush.

Unfortunately, it’s no longer available as Polish Pickup has exclusive items, centered around a central theme, only available for four days each month. It’s open on the first Friday through Monday of each month and you can find it HERE.

I had to get this one when I saw it because it totally sounds like something I would have said when I was a little kid (I was a bit of a brat!). 🙂

Peachtree Polish – Choc-o-mint // Polish Pickup Exclusive February 2018 “Sugar Rush”


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure was an exclusive polish from the February 2018 Polish Pickup. If you are unfamiliar with Polish Pickup, it’s a website that brings a number of indie polish makers together to sell polish around a central theme each month. The webstore is only open the first Friday – Monday of each month and every polish that is for sale is exclusive to that month’s sale. This concept has really taken off and indie wax vendors, and cuticle care items have been added. There are usually over 70 individual items for sale so it’s hard sometimes to whittle down your wish list! You can read about the concept HERE.

Great Lakes Lacquer – Glass On Fire // January 2018 Polish Pickup


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from Great Lakes Lacquer. Unfortunately this was an exclusive polish from January’s Polish Pickup, so it’s no longer available. If you like this one, check out all the other gorgeous things on her website HERE.

If you are not familiar with Polish Pickup, it’s a way for a bunch of indie polish makers (plus wax makers, cuticle care makers and jewelry makers) to get together to do an exclusive polish (etc.) around a central theme, and have them up for sale for just a few days each month.

What I like about this concept is you can try different and ‘new to you’ brands (plus old favorites) and shipping is just $3 within the US no matter how many polishes you buy or how many orders you make within that 4 day period the shop is open.  So the shop is open the first Friday through Monday of each month. If you place 4 orders in that time frame, you will only pay $3 shipping (once the extra shipping is refunded). If you buy 20 polishes within that weekend, shipping is still only $3 (and you are very lucky!!) 🙂

The Polish Pickup has really taken off and grew quickly. These days there are often over 60 unique offerings so it’s hard to whittle down your shopping list!! You can read all about Polish Pickup HERE and shop to your hearts desire  March 2-5, 2018. That is the next opening weekend for the store. March’s theme is Books and the sneak peeks in the Facebook group look Gorgeous!! This is going to be an expensive month I’m afraid!

Polish Pickup – A New Concept


Hi everyone! There’s a new website that is getting some indie nail polish makers together to create a polish around a central theme. So for April, 18 makers came together to create one polish each. You can buy one or all or any number in between. The theme for April is Famous Works of Art. I found out about it on Facebook, but I don’t think you have to be a member of the group to buy.
