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."
Scofflaw Pale Blue Dot is a blackened-blue jelly filled with tons of blue shimmer, blue/green multichrome flecks, as well as silver, turquoise, and green holo glitter. Formula had great glitter density and spread smoothly and easily. I used 3 thin coats here (plus 2 coats of topcoat) for a smooth finish. I just adore how this is a different spin on a Earth Day polish! Viewing Earth from space is a totally different vantage point, and I think that Finch totally nailed it! What a fantastic intro for Scofflaw into Polish Pickup!

Polish Pickup is an interactive shopping experience where a theme is voted on by the Polish Pickup Pack group and a selection of makers will make polishes inspired by that theme. All of their polishes will be available to purchase from the Polish Pickup shop and you can pick and choose which polishes to purchase (there is no box commitment) and just pay one $3 flat shipping fee. The Polish Pickup shop is live the first Friday of each month at 11 AM EDT.  It stays open for four days, until the following Monday at Midnight EDT. There will be a 2-3 week TAT after the polishes are purchased.

Scofflaw Nail Varnish is available in creator Finch's shopBe sure to follow Scofflaw's Facebook page and Instagram for updates on restocks and new collections (as well as to see lots of pretty swatches.) Thanks for looking everyone!
