Jior Couture - We Built This | August 2018 Polish Pickup


Picture overload warning, this is a magnetic!

Yoooooo, I did something I haven't done in so many years (remember when magnetic polishes were in the drugstore?), I used a magnetic polish! August's Polish Pickup theme is musicals, which just means I understand half of the references and I have to look up the other half. This polish is based on Black-ish's Juneteeth episode (one I haven't seen but I am working my way through Black-ish). The polish is $12.50 and there's no cap!

Polish Pickup is a monthly polish shopping extravaganza! Each month, there's a new theme (voted on by group members) and makers individually decide if they want to participate and create their own polish to meet the theme. This month, the store is open from 8/3-8/6, and you can buy as many or as few polishes as you want. The shipping is $3.00 total (US), no matter how many polishes you get, and they combine shipping if you make more than one order during the weekend!

Necessary Evil Polish - Stainless Steel Punani Review | Swatch My Stash


Hi, y'all! Today I have another semi-recent release from Necessary Evil Polish, and this one has a fun(ny) name because the maker has a twisted sense of humor.....something I completely appreciate! This is perfect for those Deadpool/Colossus manis because this so much reminds me of him shiny self.  

I have a mini bottle to show you but it's available in full-size. Also, think kind thoughts for my camera that had to deal with this crazy reflection.



Stainless Steel Punani is a silver chrome polish.

The Howling Boutique's Supermoon Lacquer - The Hound of Hades | October 2017 Polish Pickup | Swatch My Stash

♪ Guess who's back, back again. ♪ So if you missed my update post, I don't blame you...I rambled a lot. Anyways, I'm back to doing things thanks to a lot of help from others and the general need to get back to blogging and swatching. (I have the products, I might as well do something with them!)

This is for the July Polish Pickup Rewind. Brands are hosting one of their polishes on their own websites so make sure to check all of your favorite brands to see if something was brought back that you missed the first time! THB brought back The Hound of Hades from October 2017 which sold out in minutes due to limited stock so it's back here for $12.50 (get free US shipping for this polish with code ILOVEPPU) now until the 9th and then again during her Shenanigans Week (which is gonna get real expensive real quick, my list is absurd). 

Let's just get to the polish!



The Hound of Hades is a blackened navy blue scattered holographic with blue/purple/copper and red/orange/green (a more sparkley 'Unicorn Pee' dupe) chameleon pigment, red-to-gold color shifting pigment, blue and turquoise shimmer, copper and gold sparks, iridescent red-to-green color shifting microglitter, and holographic copper and silver microglitter.
