Polish Pickup May 2018 ~ LevelUP Lacquer

*Provided for review


Hi everyone! I am sure you are all busy making your Polish Pickup decisions. Let me throw 2 more things at you real quick! I know it’s last minute but I didn’t want this to get lost in the flow of things. It is an amazing crelly polish and glitter gel! How freaking 90’s right?! Ashley is always so very good at matching her theme pics! So let’s see what we got shall we?


Who played this??? I did not own this system so I sadly did not. BUT, I have seen it played by friends. Does that even count? Anywho, Shaken, Not Stirred is a soft grey crelly base with gold crushed glitters, gold flakes, and a scattering of large black flakes. So .007!! I used 3 thin coats for my swatch with top coat. As usual, you could totally get away with 2 coats. I just polish differently I think.

How about another 90’s icon?


Almost every girl out there has seen this version of Cinderella. Except me of course. I don’t do well with movies that make me cry. I’m more of an out loud sobber lol!! Which has kept me watching scary and/or action movies. Either way, this moment here gives me chills. I can feel how she is feeling and it’s intense. To go with the chills and mood, Ash brings you a glitter gel to match Drew Barrymore! It looks just like this glittery gif and it only has 3 ingredients! 100% pure unscented aloe gel, liquid glycerin, and cosmetic grade glitter! You can use this gel anywhere you want except near you eyes and mouth for safety reasons. It’s awesome in your hair!! Once dry this glitter will stay put until you wash it off with soap and water. Rub it in with your fingers or use the included sponge for a more intense look.


Now for the deets. Shaken, Not Stirred has NO CAP!!! This polish will be $10.50 USD. The body glitter will be $6.50 USD and WILL BE CAPPED at 150 2oz. jars. Polish Pickup opens tomorrow May 4th and will close May 7th! DON’T MISS THESE. Links are below. Have a great day my loves ❀

Polish Pickup May 2018 ~ LE Polish

*Provided for review


Hi all! I’m still here! I have had a tooth infection this week so I have been really quiet. If you have ever had a toothache then you know how debilitating it can be. Just ugh… So let’s make this quick so I can get back to my ice pack lol. LE Polish is back again for Polish Pickup. The theme this month is the 90’s! I was born in 1984 so the 90’s were a HUGE part of my growing up. I was the kid who had friends that were into a little bit of everything. I always stayed toward the grunge, metal, piercings, dyed air, angst stuff. The rebel! If that sounds familiar to you then you are going to need this polish. If you know grunge, then you know the name Courtney Love and the band Hole.

The ultimate Queen Of Grunge. The polish of the same name is exactly what I think of from that inspiration pic! Seriously, spot on.


Queen Of Grunge is a nude crelly polish with dark grey micro flakies, color shifting flakes, and an aurora shimmer. Get ready for lots of pics! I have little nubs now and wasn’t sure what looked best lol. Feel free to let me know what you like or don’t like!! For my swatch I used 2 perfectly perfect coats with top coat for my swatch.

I added some “grunge” era nail art! Super 90’s πŸ™‚


The flakies make this polish. They are subtle but fantastic with the neutral base. This polish will be $12.00 USD and there are only 200 bottles available! Don’t forget, Polish Pickup is only open May 4th – May 7th 2018. Things literally fly off the shelves so get your order ready and be prepared!! Links below πŸ™‚

Polish Pickup May 2018 ~ Joy Lacquer

*Provided for review


Hello πŸ™‚ It’s another rainy, yucky day here in CT. I am really hoping that you have warmer weather! So, I just shared a collage and video of this Joy Lacquer in the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook page and y’all went nuts! Is it because of the inspiration or because of the polish itself? I will totally take both as an answer!! Let’s get right to it.

Anthony Kied-YAASS! is a fabulous candy-apple red jelly polish packed with both opalescent and chrome shifting flakies. The inspiration is the Red Hot Chili Peppers album, Blood Sugar Sex Magic. This album includes the popular songs: “Under The Bridge”, “Give It Away”, and “Breaking The Girl”. This album has since gone platinum 7 times!! Let me tell you my favorite part: First coat is RED! Not pink. Not magenta, RED! If a lighter red is what you want, one coat of this is perfect. 2 coats makes it a little deeper and adds flakie dimension. You really won’t need a 3rd coat but you know me. I used 3 coats plus top coat purposely because I love flakies. I wanted the most depth I could get. It’s SO SQUISHY ❀ The flakies make the polish look like it has been sprinkled with chili pepper flakes! How freaking clever.


Fabulous right?! And even better, you get a few nail vinyls/decals with each bottle of Anthony Kied-YAASS! The decals will be in the shape of one of Anthony Kiedas’ smaller, but very recognizable tattoos. A black asterisk symbol (or Star Of Affinity). This symbol was also later used as a band logo.


Are you sold yet? I am super happy to have this one. I am wearing it on my sad little nubs, matte, right now! You will have to buy it to see though because I didn’t take pics of it lol! The price for this polish, including vinyls, is $11.00 USD. There will be a cap of 100 bottles so you better act fast! Polish Pickup opens May 4th and closes May 7th 2018.Β  I will leave the links below! Have a “Highly Fantastic” weekend πŸ˜‰

Sassy Pants Polish ~ Polish Pickup March 2018

*Provided for review


Sunday… a pretty crappy one too 😦 Rainy and chilly. Totally ready for warmer weather! Maybe this ocean looking polish from Sassy Pants Polish will help!! So, this is my first time using this brand. Wow was I impressed ❀ This polish is a part of the March 2018 Polish Pickup and will only be available from March 2nd – 5th 2018! HERE is where you can get the info about PPU and how it works! The theme for March is Books!!! Let’s get to that polish.


Where The Wild Things Are is the inspiration behind Wild Things. It’s an azure blue, holo, jelly polish with micro holo glitters and shreds. My favorite part is the purple/red shimmer! The formula was SOOOOO good for a jelly polish. The first coat was a bit sheer but it built up in 3 thin coats. It did not get totally opaque but the squishiness and glitter will keep you occupied so you won’t even mind the VNL πŸ™‚ It is like looking into a carribean ocean. 3 coats with top coat!

Here is a little of the inspiration! This is from the movie The Virgin Suicides. I have never seen this so I can’t comment on it. I am, however going to be watching it tomorrow because it’s what I do πŸ™‚Β  “Women in Disguise is a bright blue polish full of color shifting flakies and an aqua to gold shift.” It is the perfect cerulean color ❀ ❀ ❀ MY FAVORITE!! I have been wearing my swatch for days and I am going to be sad when I take it off. Perfect jelly formula. Builds up perfectly in 3 thin coats. I also used top coat!

LevelUP Lacquer ~ Polish Pickup March 2018

*Provided for review


Hello! Are we all addicted to Polish Pickup Pack yet? If not, click HERE to see what it’s all about. The theme for the month of March is BOOKS!!! Ladies are EXTREMELY happy for this month. Ash, from LevelUP Lacquer, is back with an awesome shifty polish.


“The inspiration picture is A’tuin the Great Star Turtle who travels through space with the Discworld atop his shell. This Discworld is the setting for the book inspiration, The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett.”



Bottled Magic is the perfect polish from this description! I did not take my regular pics for this post. Bottled Magic was not easy to photograph. The polish looks black almost. It is actually a dark purple base with a green multichrome effect. You can see slight gold/red at extreme angles. The green shift makes this polish. It also has crushed silver holo shreds. The first coat was a bit patchy but the second coat built it up perfectly. I used 2 coats with top coat for my swatch.

LevelUP Lacquer ~ Polish Pickup February 2018

*Provided for review


Hey guys! Trying this wordpress thing again! I love the way it looks for now πŸ™‚ I’m trying to be all fancy like lol. So, it’s almost that time again! Have you made your wishlist for all the goodies offered this month? Polish Pickup just got first place in an awards category. Go visit Polish Pickup Pack to see all the deets. Also, check HERE for all the info on how PPU works.


The February theme for PPU is “Sugar Rush” and Ash from LevelUP Lacquer has brought us a sugary, sweet, pink polish inspired by the boss “Baroness Von Bon Bon” from the game Cup Head. Got all that?


Baroness Of Sugarland is a creamy pink polish with silver holo flakes and color changing iridescent flakes. For me this polish was a tiny bit thick. PLEASE be easy on our indie polish makers. It is winter and a lot of places are cold. If you open it too quickly after you receive it, it will be thick and goopy. The polish is unharmed. Just add a few drops of polish thinner, give it a good shake, and you should be good to go. After I added thinner, the polish applied very smooth and very even. It does not dry with a texture but a good top coat to smooth the glitters will be best. Don’t forget to use a peel off base coat to make removing a breeze! I used 2 fabulous coats with top coat for my swatch.

I added some swirls. To me that said “candy and cute”. Not sure I pulled it off but here it is anyways!

After you drain your bank account… come share with me what ya got! I love to see sparkly hauls. Set your clocks and don’t be late because these things FLY! I hope you love Baroness Of Sugarland as much as I ❀ Have a fantastic Sunday. XOXO
