Polish Pickup December 2017: CrowsToes Zero

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! Tonight I have CrowsToes' offering for December's Polish Pickup! The theme for December is "Holidays Around the World" and Lauri chose Nightmare Before Christmas (so Halloween!) to use as her inspiration. This month's Polish Pickup will start on December 1st and will run until December 4th (it's starting a few days early this month to allow for makers to get polishes out by Christmas!). This polish will be capped at 175 bottles this month, so grab it while you can!

Polish Pickup December 2017: Scofflaw Pale Blue Dot

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! Tonight I have Scofflaw's offering for December's Polish Pickup! The theme for December is "Holidays Around the World" and Finch chose Earth Day to use as her inspiration. 
This month's Polish Pickup will start on December 1st and will run until December 4th (it's starting a few days early this month to allow for makers to get polishes out by Christmas!). 

For Earth Day, Finch drew inspiration from a quote by Carl Sagan about Earth, when viewed from deep space (approximately 3.7 billion miles away) in a photo taken by a space probe. 
"Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

Pahlish 12 Days of Christmas Collection + Black Friday GWP

Hi everyone! Today I've got Pahlish's new collection and it's a throwback to Pahlish of yesteryear! Pahlish originally released her 12 Days of Christmas Collection back in Winter 2012 and it was (and still is) a highly coveted collection. This brand new 12 Days of Christmas Collection looks nothing like the original collection, just shares the same name but I love that it gives reference to that iconic collection. Disclaimer: I swatched these on vacation so I didn't have my most ideal lighting setup, but I made it work. I don't feel like I captured all of the glorious shifty aspects of some of these because of that, but I tried! This collection will be available for pre-order during Pahlish's Black Friday sale (which extends to 11/27) with a small discount and will be restocked in small amounts when the shop reopens in December. These polishes will not be available again after January 1st, so grab them while you can! Read on for more Black Friday sale details!

Lemming Lacquer You Are What You Worship Collection: Part 1

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Long time, no see! I've gotten to have a little bit of down time this month (a little getaway last week was very welcomed since I haven't been able to take a vacation since LAST DECEMBER!) Anyway, today I have the first installment of Lemming Lacquer's You Are What You Worship Collection. This collection is inspired by the first season of the show American Gods (and this is just Part 1...Part 2 will be released soon!). 

Here is what Cassie has to say about the inspiration:
Once upon a time... See? It sounds good already. You're hooked. 
Gods are real if you believe in them.  Either the world is crazy or you are and there are bigger sacrifices one might be asked to make than going a little mad. 
You Are What You Worship is a collection inspired by the gods and beings introduced in the first season of American Gods.  Inside is a rich world of ancient myth and folklore at war with technology, modern media, and globalization against the backdrop of America's byways. 

Lemming Lacquer's You Are What You Worship Collection: Part 1 will release on November 23rd at 11 PM Central time in the Lemming Lacquer shop. Lemming Lacquer is participating in the Indie Brand Collective sale (click the link to join their FB group to see all participating brands) during Black Friday sales and the same discount code can be used across all shops in the IBC. Use the code IBCFRIDAY to receive 25% off any purchase of $20 or more (this includes everything in the shop, including the new collection). The sale ends at 1:59 AM Central time on Monday.

Hi everyone! Tonight I have Lollipop Posse Lacquer's contribution to November's Fandom-themed Polish Pickup.
