Polish Pickup | Ancient History | March 2020



The theme for this month’s Polish Pickup is Ancient History. For me, this theme was a bit of a wild card. I’m not at all a history buff, so I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with what makers have come up with (and even more surprised that I was actually somewhat familiar with some of the inspirations).

Polish Pickup will run from March 6th (11am EST) to March 9th (11:59pm EST). During the shopping window, you can buy bucket loads of indie polishes, beauty products, jewelry and more for a flat rate shipping price of  US $3.00/CAD $5.00.

Ready to start window shopping?? Polish Pickup is now open for wishlisting and pre-sale browsing. Take a look here!

I have seven PPU polishes to share with you all. Let’s get started!

All swatches done using Vapid Lacquer – Commitment Issues Peel Off Base Coat and Cuticula Nail Care – Limitless  Quick Dry Top Coat. Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite.
