Polish Pickup | April 2022 | Periodic Table of Elements

 Press Sample/Some Paid Sponsorship

Hi loves! I have this months Polish Pickup to share with you. 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 polish/products are sold in the Polish Pickup store at the beginning of each month. Customers then get to pick which polishes/products they want and pay a flat rate shipping! (shipping info at the bottom of the posts)

The April 2022 theme is The Periodic Table of Elements!

And I have 31 of those polishes and products to share with you today!

Live Swatches:
Please don't forget to thumbs up/subscribe/click the notification bell to get notified whenever I upload a new video! :)

*All photos are taken indoors under 30W Daylight Bulbs with a Canon DSLR Camera.
*I angle my hand in direct lighting as well as low lighting to capture as many of the shifts as I am able.
*All photos shown with a fast dry top coat unless otherwise stated.
*All Magnetic Particles in a polish disperses over time, in my experience 9 times out of 10 I am unable to keep a thin, crisp line to stay put (unless using a gel magnetic polish); my photos are shown with a 20+ minute dry time so the magnetic line may seem more crisp then if I were to have kept the polish on for longer.
*My Reflective swatches are also shown with low lighting and camera flash.

Glisten & Glow-Glitter Grabber
Described as an amazing product that gets applied after any glitter or flakie dense manicure is done and it’s fully dry and before your top coat. It aids in creating a smoother surface for your top coat or matte top coat all while “grabbing” that extra texture!

Directions: 
After you have applied your glitter or flakie polish and have fully let it dry, you add a nice layer of Glisten & Glow Glitter Grabber on top. It is a shiny formula upon application and will add that extra layer of protection and smoothing action to that texture. Allow to fully dry and then add your glossy or matte top coat!

New Polish Pickup Shipping Info:
-Packages weighing 0.0oz - 7.0oz will still be $3. Think of this as about three polishes. For most folks, this means that shipping will be just the same as it always has been. If you like to grab just a few polishes or items over the weekend, then you'll continue to pay the same $3.
-Packages weighing 7.1oz + will now ship for $5.

How does this apply to combined orders? 
Don't worry, fellow chain-shoppers! This change applies to the total weight of all the orders you place over the weekend. So if you grab a polish and top coat on Friday, you can still go back and grab the waterslide decals on Monday and still stay under the $3 weight class.

Will I still get my combined shipping refunds? 
Yes, absolutely! No matter what insanity the USPS engages PPU are 100% committed to keeping the combined shipping x refunds concept.

How will refunds work? 
Basically the same as they always have.
If you make three purchases over the weekend, each over 7.1oz, then you will see a $10 refund later in the month.
If you place three 4oz orders over the weekend, your final shipping total will be $5. You can expect a $4 refund coming your way soon.
