Polish Pickup opens for the September 2022 pre-order with the theme Scary Vibes, which will be available from September 2 at 11AM EDT to September 5 at 11:59PM EDT. 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. This month I have products from Anchor & Heart Lacquer, KBShimmer, Pretty Beautiful Unlimited, and Wildflower Lacquer.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer Pumpkin Head Dwight is a taupe gray jelly with pink-orange-green multichrome iridescent shimmer and flakes and small and medium orange holo glitters. I wore it in four thin coats, but two or three will cover and it had a good formula and dry time. It needs top coat to be completely smooth, but the glitters don’t make it too bumpy either.

Pretty Beautiful Unlimited I Smell Children has a clear base with red/bronze/copper multichrome flakes, lavender metallic flakes, pink/orange/gold/lime multichrome iridescent crystal chameleon flakes, and gold reflective particles.

Wildflower Lacquer Ghostly Good Time is a deep royal purple jelly with red/gold/green, pink/orange/purple, and aqua/green/purple multichrome iridescent crystal flakes. I wore it in four thin coats, but two or three will cover. This dries quickly and needs top coat to smooth.
