Who’s in the mood for a Black Friday-style elbow jab to the face? NOT ME! In fact, I steer clear of most outdoor activities. Cuz EFFORT. Also PANTS. And Lazy, Level EXPERT. I can’t even tell you the last time I went out shopping. The idea of it makes me tired. Buying myself clothes is a nightmare with a meltdown and a pity party on top cuz what is cute on the rack is a frumpy hobo in the dressing room. That’s not even a typo.
However, I do buy things cuz occasionally I am forced. Like, when I run out of underwear and laundry is a not a decision I feel committed to. Or maybe it is my mother’s birthday and I need to have a panic attack in the middle of Bed Bath and Beyond. But sometimes a shopping opportunity just falls in your lap – and it requires no effort, no chaos, and most importantly NO PANTS. I’m talking about Polish Pickup. Otherwise known as all your nail polish dreams come true, plus pajamas. Well, if you’re me.
Polish Pickup is the best new thing. It’s a cross between a collaboration box and a pop up shop, and a most awesome way to buy polish from several favorite indie makers all at once. I’m so freaking excited, I’ve got my maxi pad on in case of accidental peeing. I mean, one never knows when the mood to gleefully jump up and down will strike. Even this comatose body forgets to sit still every once in a while.
Aside from the polish, us customers can get in on the fun from the beginning. Each month, we all submit and vote on a theme and then the makers create polishes based on that theme. I missed voting on the first two themes, but I’m totally tossing Ode to Leonardo in there for next time. Cuz a polish named Gilbert Grape just makes sense.
So the party’s getting ready to start and it’s basically a polish emergency, so y’all need to focus now. I have the Blush Lacquers offering for the month of April and you’re gonna want this all over your surfaces. Here’s Modeled in Marble:
Told ya. How you’re getting out of this blog without 27 bottles minimum defies allllll the logic. Even the rocket scientists are like I dunno.
April’s theme is Famous Works of Art, and Victoria chose Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s Ecstasy of Saint Teresa as her inspiration. Take a look at this:
Now take a look at this:
Ummmm, what? NAILED IT doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario.
This polish has a delicious grey-green base with a blue to purple shifting shimmer and these spectacular gold and holo flakies. It’s so unique and one of the most beautiful things I ever saw. Seen. Have ever seen. Ugh. One can’t grammar at a time like this.
Grab your drool bucket! Now scroll:
Gah! I just died. I done did.
So here’s the deal. This polish along with 17 others are in the April shop. Shop opens Friday (today, by the time you might be reading this), April 7 at 11am EST. You have until Monday, April 10 at midnight to shop, then every last one of these polishes are gone. FOREVER. As in, a sad state of affairs for you if you don’t prioritize immediately. Are you properly panicked? You should be.
Each polish in the shop has a variety of prices, and Modeled in Marble retails for $11.50. You can buy one polish or all 18 of them – it’s up to you – and shipping will only be $3. Why, that’s practically free! And we love free things, oh yes we do. Click here for shopping!

Congratulations on your good decision.
