As a fan of the beach and ocean life, I was very excited for the Aquatic Wonders theme for April Polish Pickup. There were so many different angles that makers could draw inspiration from and I was super pleased with the range of polish colors and finishes that makers brought to the table. There are also several non-polish indie products that I have my eye. April is shaping up to be a big buy month!
Polish Pickup will run from Friday, April 3rd to Monday, April 6th. The PPU website is currently open for wishlisting. Visit here to see all of the products being offered in April!
If you are like me, you end up placing multiple orders over the weekend as you keep going back to the website “just to window shop.” Luckily, PPU offers $3.00 flat rate shipping for all US orders and tiered shipping for all Canadian orders. International shipping is also available!
I have 13 products to share with you all today. Let’s take a look!
