Polish Pickup | March 2022 | Makers Choice

Press Sample/Some Paid Sponsorship
Hi loves! I haven't been feeling well the past month or so and right as I started feeling better my family unfortunately had a devistating sudden loss so the past couple of weeks swatching got delayed yet again. Due to this I was late in getting PPU swatches and videos done any earlier then now and I apologize for that. So just like last month, I apologize for cutting my blog post and YouTube video so close to release and I thank you so much for your patience and understanding!

Anywho, It's time for Polish Pickup March 2022!

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 March 2022 theme is Makers Choice!

And I have 43 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.

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.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I appreciate the time it must take to do such a post. While all the colors are beautiful I just can't love the reflective glitter. I don't want my nails so blingy and it's a pain taking it off. Maybe for special occasions it is fine . Thankfully there is many to choose from this month. Take care .
