Polish Pickup September 2023 Haunted History: Noodles Nail Polish Bewitching Bridget

 *press sample*

Hello hello! Guess who is super tired? Yup, I flew to San Francisco for work last week, and had to take a red-eye back the other day. I'm just not cut out for red-eyes anymore. I have a feeling I'm gonna need multiple naps this week. Anyway, can you believe Polish Pickup (PPU) is upon us already? This month's theme is Haunted History which is appropriate for Halloween which is quickly approaching. The website is open now for making your wishlists, so stop on over and set that up if something you want has a bottle limit. It seems like things have been selling out fairly quickly which is great for the brands participating. 

The shop officially opens at 11:00 AM ET Friday, September 1st and ends on Monday, September 4th 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. Just a heads-up, PPU raised their base shipping rates from $3 to $4 for the lightest packages. If you get heavier items, I believe shipping prices get higher from there. Let's get a closer look at this month's Noodles Nail Polish offering. 

Noodles Nail Polish Bewitching Bridget (2 coats)
Inspiration: Bridget Bishop. She was executed during the Salem Witch Trials and was believed to be a witch due to being outspoken, deliberately dressing differently, and “bewitching” people. She is said to haunt “Turner's Seafood” in Salem, which was built on land that she owned.
Price: $12
Bottle Limit: 300 bottles

When I saw the bottle of Bewitching Bridget, I knew I'd love it. It's described as a deep navy crelly base with gold/copper/green color-shifting flakes with green/orange iridescent glitters, copper holo glitters, and metallic caramel glitters. While this is described as a crelly, it seemed a little more squishy and jelly-like than a true crelly. I wasn't quite sure if it would be a 2 or 3 coater, but I'm happy to report that I needed just 2 coats for full opacity. It will dry with texture, so I recommend a glitter-smoothing topcoat followed by a QDTP for that glass-like finish. If you prefer 2 coats of a thicker topcoat, that should work as well. Most months Natalie is able to not have a bottle limit, but this month there is a cap of 300 bottles, so be aware of that. 

There you have it, folks. What do you plan on picking up this month? Start your wishlist now so you don't miss out on any capped items. You can find out more about Noodles Nail Polish on their websiteInstagram pageFacebook page, and Facebook Fan Group
