🎶 It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter (sung to the tune of It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas). 🎶
That’s right, winter has officially hit Arizona, which means jackets and heaters in the morning and at night and short sleeves and open windows during the day. I feel personally victimized by this cold weather. Please send warm thoughts to my 100+ degree loving heart.
Winter has also hit with December’s Polish Pickup with a theme of Winter is Coming. Will we see Game of Thrones inspired polishes? General winter inspired polishes? Winter movies inspired polishes? Winter food inspired polishes?
The possibilities are endless!!
PPU usually runs from the first Friday to Monday of the month, but a slight change has been made to the dates to celebrate Cyber Monday and to give makers a slight break for the holidays. December PPU will run from Monday, December 2nd to Friday, December 6th at http://www.polishpickup.com.
Let’s take a look at a few of the December polishes.
