Polish Pickup Pack November 2018 - Et-Le | Polish Reviews


Hey, y'all! I disappeared partly because of life (adulting is fun) but partly because I was asked to participate as one of the Bloggers of the Month for Polish Pickup for November 2018! Because this post (and the accompanying one) is for PPU, it's a different layout than my normal posts. If you're looking for more pictures from me, make sure to check out the Polish Pickup Group! Please note that this is not the entire selection for PPU November, it's just the ones that makers chose to send to me.

If you're looking for the A-Em portion, click here!

This collage looks just about as good as the other one...which isn't saying much.

Moonflower Polish - Gemstones Pt 1 Review | Nail Polish Reviews


So, this is something completely different for me. I am sharing nail art! This collection is a stamping one (all of her polishes are actually stamping polishes) and I leaned into the Halloween theme because it's been Halloween at my house for at least a month. I have the minis but there are also full-size ones available! This collection is in preorder through tomorrow at 11:59PM EST, so go grab it now! The full-size polishes (15mL) are $14 each and the minis (7mL) are $8 each! 

Here's the Gemstones Collection, Pt 1!



Y'all, these minis are so cute! And the brushes are actually 'regular' ones!

Night Owl Lacquer - Banshee Scream Review | October 2017 Polish Pickup | Swatch My Stash

Hey, y'all! I've been so bad about sharing newer brands (both to me and to the world) on my blog. I have quite a few polishes from Night Owl Lacquer and while there have been/will be so many new releases on here, I'm still going through my crazy backlog of polishes I've purchased and swatched. This polish is from Polish Pickup last year where the theme was Monsters and Mythical Creatures (one of my faves!). 

Let's get to the polish!



Banshee Scream is a black tinted linear holographic with a green/blue/purple chameleon shift, midnight sparkle flakies and lots of ultra chrome chameleon flakies in cyan/violet and jade/blue/purple.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Scarlet Flame Review | Polish Pickup October 2018


Happy Wednesday! This week I actually have things I have to do out of the house this weekend, which I'm happy about but also irritated about because that requires putting on non-comfy clothes. It's Polish Pickup weekend and I have Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's polish on my blog today! The October '18 theme is Villains and BEGL's inspiration is none other than Smaug from the Hobbit. 

This polish is a magentic and it has an option to purchase with or without a magnet. With magnet: $15.00, cap of 75. Without magnet: $13.00, cap of 100.

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 10/5-10/8, and you can buy as many or as few polishes as you want. The shipping is $3.00 total (US) (there's a $5 flat rate for Canada), no matter how many polishes you get, and they combine shipping if you make more than one order during the weekend! 

Polish Pickup's info:

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's info:


Scarlet Flame is a burgundy/eggplant (depending on the angle) base with gold sparking shimmers, red microflakies, gold and rusty red glass flecks, and a gold to red shifting magnetic pigment.

Quixotic Polish - Aegean Waters Review | Swatch My Stash

So...remember that time when I told y'all that I had worked through the old bottle style of Quixotic's polishes...I was so wrong. I found a few more bottles that I had grabbed up a while ago. That said, I will eventually have some of the new bottle style. As a bonus, this polish is still available here!



Aegean Waters is a beautiful turquoise jelly with linear holo effect and color shifting flakes.
