Although I have decided to cut down on my swatching for Polish Pickup every month, I still have a few beautiful shades to share with you all today! Included in this post are the upcoming March PPU polishes from Emily de Molly, Ethereal Lacquer, 1850 Artisan Polish, and Colors by Llarowe.
New to Polish Pickup? Every month, PPU has a theme voted on by fans. Tons of indie makers then create a polish inspired by that theme. You can order as many shades from any maker participating that month for a flat rate of $3 shipping in the U.S. You can learn more about PPU on their website here! This month’s theme is “album covers”, and these shades will be available from March 1-4th on the Polish Pickup website.
Emily de Molly was inspired by the album Our Long Road Home from the band Taproot to create “Hide the Sun”. This shade has a teal base and is packed with orange, gold, and green iridescent flakes as well as silver holographic microglitters. This shade was opaque in 2 easy coats of polish for me and will retail for $11.00 with no cap.
Ethereal Lacquer was inspired by the song Superposition by Young the Giant to create “Superposition”. This shimmer shade has a vivid cobalt blue jelly base with red to green color shifting shimmer. This polish was opaque in three thin coats for me and will retail for $13.00 and has a cap of 350 bottles.
Colors by Llarowe was inspired by album Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana to create “Hello, Hello, Hello”. This shade has a bright pool blue base with purple to aqua shifting Aurora pigment and violet/blue/green iridescent flakes. This shade was opaque in three thin coats of polish for me and will retail for $11.00 with no cap.
1850 Artisan Polish was inspired by The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd to create “Lunar Eclipse”. This shade is a dark grey to clear nude transitioning linear holographic thermal. This polish was opaque in two coats of polish for me and will retail for $13.00 with no cap.
