Polish Pickup | December 2022 | Maker's Choice

Press Sample | Some Paid PR
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 December 2022 theme is Makers Choice!

And I have 30 of those polishes and products to share with you today!
*Just a heads up, I am taking a break from swatching in December to spend time with family and friends for the Holiday season so there will not be a video or blog post for January Polish Pickup. I will be back for February though! <3

Photo Disclaimers:
*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.

Extended wear time, durability, and overall look.
