May Polish Pickup | The 1990's

12:50 PM

PRESS SAMPLE
Hello! It's the beginning of the month which means Polish Pickup is this weekend! woo hoo! I have 20 plus polishes/products to share with you today! I have been pretty sick going on two weeks now and only just now starting to feel a little better so I was unable to write and post 20 something different PPU blog reviews. So I decided on one big one and honestly, I think I will do this from now on instead of 20 something individual blogs. This saves me in time and makes it a lot more organized for all of you to be able to find everything. And be sure to watch my Live swatch video below or on my YouTube [here]

Anywho, if you don't already know, Polish Pickup is a Facebook group where makers create a polish/product based on a certain theme and all of the polishes are sold in the Polish Pickup store at the beginning of each month. Customers then get to pick which polishes they want and pay a flat rate shipping of $3(US)!

May's theme is The 1990's!
My favorite decade and the time that holds most of my childhood memories! I most definitely did good amount of flashbacking swatching all these polishes! haha!
