Noodles Nail Polish September 2019 Polish Pickup Magic and Alchemy: Three Wishes

*press sample*

Hola! Summer's almost over, huh? A co-worker went to Starbucks today because the pumpkin spice latte was released today. I mean, on August 27th?! Is it just me, or is that too early? #controversialtopics Anyway, can you believe the September Polish Pickup (PPU) is upon us once more? I just got my August order yesterday, so I'm all ready to go shopping. Not sure how PPU works? Here's a little refresher: first, definitely join the Polish Pickup Facebook Group. You don't necessarily need to actively participate in the group, but it will give you a look at the polishes that will be available in the coming month. PPU themes are chosen by the people, often a few months in advance (brands need time to find their inspiration and test their polish). Any indie brand that has been around for at least a year can participate and each has their own specific inspiration picture and polish for that month. All you need to do is go to the Polish Pickup site during the pre-order window (the first Friday-Monday of the month) to make all of your purchases of these exclusive polishes. There's no need to pay for multiple shipping charges; since this is a pre-order, all polishes get sent to Polish Pickup and they send you the polishes you ordered. Yup, it's that simple. Oh, and shipping is a flat-rate of $3 to the US ($5 for Canada and more for international). Recently they also opened a UK site which you can find here. Since all orders are pre-orders, shipping will take place about 3 weeks after the end of the pre-order

PPU starts Friday, Sept 6th at 11:00 AM ET and ends on Monday, Sept 9th at 11:59 PM (but if a polish has a cap and sells out before the end of the pre-order, it's gone, unless you get lucky and the cap gets raised...which is rare) on the PPU website. This month's inspiration is Magic and Alchemy, which is quite a broad spectrum. I've got 3 shades to share with you this month, so should we get into Noodles Nail Polish's contribution? 

Noodles Nail Polish Three Wishes (3 coats)
Price: $11:50
Cap: None
Inspiration: The Genie from Aladdin

I'll always think of the Genie like this:

not this:

And I'll always think of Robin Williams in the role. Anway, Three Wishes is a bright cornflower blue crelly with blue/gold glitter, holo/gold flakes, and blue shimmer. So much blue and gold, just like the genie! I found it be to be on the sheer side, but it built up to full opacity with 3 coats. The formula was smooth and easy, but it dries with texture from the glitter. If you want easy removal, bust out that peel-off basecoat, or use the foil method. 

This one is super sparkly, and I love a good cornflower blue polish.  You can find out more about Noodles Nail Polish on their websiteInstagram pageFacebook page, and Facebook Fan Group while you can learn more about PPU on their Facebook page and website. Have a great night!
