The theme this month is Monsters & Mythical Creatures. In case you didn’t already know, Polish Pickup is a Facebook group and pop-up shop that offers monthly pre-orders of indie polish and crafts made to themes voted on by members of the group.  I have products from KBShimmer and Pretty Beautiful Unlimited. Let’s check them out!

KBShimmer Rise Up is a blue-gray jelly with red-gold-green multichrome flakes. I wore it in four thin coats, but two or three will cover. It has a medium dry time and needs top coat for smoothness and shine. I love how firey the flakes look in contrast to the muted base!

Pretty Beautiful Unlimited From the Ashes is a black-to-red multichrome shimmer with black-to-red multichrome flakes, red and black holo microglitters, and purple-red-gold multichrome iridescent crystal chameleon flakes. I wore it in four thin coats, but two or three will cover. It has a fast dry time and needs a couple layers of top coat to fully smooth. The red shift on this one is super-firey! It is the ultimate vampy fall polish.

Pretty Beautiful Unlimited Sweet Fire Wax is a 2.5 oz. soy wax clamshell with smoke, clove, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, fruit, musk, leather, marshmallow, honey, chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon notes. To me it smells like fruit with nice bit of campfire/fireplace in the background.
