Polish Pickup January 2022 Spices and Condiments from Noodles Nail Polish

 *press sample*

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! I hope 2022 is the best year ever (with how crappy the past couple years have been, the bar is really low, right?). It feels like a hot minute since the last Polish Pickup for some reason. This month's inspiration is spices and condiments which is a bit weird, but I'm so excited for it. The more interesting themes tend to bring out the best in the makers. 

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, January 7th at 11:00 AM ET and ends on Monday, January 10th 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 Winter Warmer (2 coats)
Inspiration: Spice Rack and Condiments
Price: $12.50
Bottle Limit: None

Tonight we've got Winter Warmer from Noodles Nail Polish which is a deep dusty blue crelly base with teal/purple/blue/green/aqua color-shifting flakes, light blue matte glitters, metallic ice blue glitters, and some silver holo flakes. There's so much green and blue in this one that it reminds me a bit of a mermaid if that makes sense. The amount of flakes and glitters in this one will make it dry with some texture, so I recommend a glitter topcoat if you've got one. If not, a couple coats of a thicker topcoat will do. I expected to need 3 coats, but I was happy with just 2. Love it! 

 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?
