Polish Pickup December 2021 Cozy Vibes: Noodles Nail Polish

 *press samples*

    Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving for my readers from the US. I'm actually celebrating tomorrow since my family will be coming into town to watch our animals while we leave for the BTS concert. Speaking of, I can't wait to leave for our trip! I know you don't want to hear about how excited I am about the concert, so shall we talk about another thing I'm excited about this week? Yes, it's Polish Pickup week again! 

     New to PPU? If so, here's how it works: 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. *Shipping Price Update 2021* Orders weighing up to 7 oz will still ship to the US for $3 while all other US orders will ship for $5 (more for international and they just had to increase the pricing to Canada). Since all orders are pre-orders, shipping will take place about 3 weeks after the end of the pre-order.

     PPU starts Friday, December 3rd at 11:00 AM ET and ends on Monday, December 6th at 11:59 PM (but if a polish has a bottle limit 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. Shall we get to some pictures? 

Noodles Nail Polish Rosy and Cozy (2 coats)
Inspiration: photo of a relaxing lavender bath
Price: $12
Bottle Limit: None

    When I was a bit younger, I used to take a bunch of baths. For some reason I haven't taken one in a few years, even though I know they are good for relaxing. And a lavender bath? That sounds even better! Rosy and Cozy is a dusty mauve crelly base with pink shimmer, rose metallic microflakes, silver holo flakes, and rose hexagonal glitters. This is one of those neutral colors that is work appropriate, but with a fun twist. I really love the different flakies in this one. It applied easily in just 2 coats, but it dries with some texture from the glitters, so either use a glitter topcoat or 2 coats of a regular topcoat to smooth it all out. 

    The website is now open for wishlisting, so make sure to stop by the Polish Pickup website before Friday in case anything has a low cap. It's best to add your items to your cart the night before the sale goes live (you need to have an account and sign in first before adding your wish listed items to the cart). Easy peasy. What do you think? Which ones will you be picking up this month?
