Polish Pickup June 2024 Cartoons Noodles Nail Polish Use Your Noodle

 *press sample*

Hello hello! I hope your week is going well. It's going to be a long work week as I have to work about 10 days in a row for a pen show. Luckily I don't have to travel for this one. Polish Pickup starts a little late this month, but this is the last one before the July Rewind where a previous month's polish is re-released based on demand (and ability for the brand to procure the ingredients needed). 

This month's theme is Cartoons and I'm so excited! I'm super old school and watched Looney Tunes as a kid, and I'm still watching cartoons to this day. The inspiration for this month is pretty much endless. Wish listing is already available, so get that cart ready!

The shop officially opens at 11:00 AM ET Friday, June 7th and ends on Monday, June 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 can happen, but you have to be in the Facebook group for the notification) on the PPU website. 

Noodles Nail Polish Use Your Noodle (2 coats with 1 coat of glitter-smoothing topcoat and a coat of QDTC)
Inspiration: PB&J Otter
Price: $12
Bottle Limit: 200 bottles

I'm not gonna lie, I had to look up PB&J Otter. I'm not surprised I didn't remember it because I was a bit old for it (it debuted in 1998). That said, Use Your Noodle is a beautiful deep violet jelly base with violet/red/purple shifting flakes, and fuchsia/pink/magenta/purple hexagonal glitters. It's so squishy! Since it's a jelly, I expected it to need 3 coats, but I'm happy to report that 2 coats was plenty and it applied flawlessly. I did find it was easier to dab the first coat a bit to sort of place the glitter and flakes, and then use regular strokes for the second one. It does dry with lots of texture due to the flakes and glitter, so I recommend a glitter-smoothing topcoat followed by a layer of quick-dry topcoat for that glassy finish. If not, you're going to feel the polish on the nails and the polish may end up "eating" the topcoat a bit. I love it! 

Don't forget, this one does have a bottle limit, so if you're interested, don't wait too long to purchase. You can find out more about Noodles Nail Polish on their websiteInstagram pageFacebook page, and Facebook Fan Group
