Polish Pickup | Oct 2018 | Villains | Le-A

5:14 PM

PRESS SAMPLE
Hello Sweeties! It's the end of the month which means Polish Pickup is next weekend! woo hoo! Exactly a year ago I was the Blogger of the Month for October and this year I am again except this time I enlisted some help! I sucked Lisa in from Cosmetic Sanctuary to help me out! Both of us usually get about half of the polishes to review each month anyways so figured as a team we could bang this out rather well and I hope you think we achieved that! We are exhausted but we did it! haha!

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)!

Octobers theme is Villains! We switched things up a bit this month, rather than post in Alphabetical order A-Z we are doing it Z-A! Lisa posted her half yesterday, Z through Li, which you can find [here]. 

And here is my half, Le-A
As of right now both Lisa and I have 50 polishes/products to share. I have a few others that USPS decided to take on a trip so they are taking longer then they should to get to me. As soon as they come I will add them here.

Also note; I was asked numerous times what magnet I used for the magnetic polish swatches and that is [this one] from Lantern & Wren.
