The theme for November Polish Pickup is Red Carpet. While I don’t watch a lot of award shows, I do like looking through the best and worst dressed lists the next days. Outside of homecoming and prom in high school, I have not had any major opportunities to wear ballgowns or fancy dresses, so I will continue to live vicariously through the best/worst dressed lists.
Polish Pickup will be open from November 6th through November 9th. $3 flat rate shipping for US orders. Canadian and International shipping available.
All swatches done using Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Base Coat and Get Your Shine On. Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite.
