Top Shelf Lacquer: Polish Pickup June 2017


Oh good gracious, I’m behind again.  You know how hard it is to get back into the swing of things after a vacation?  Like, I spent an entire week lounging in pajamas (well, except for that disastrous hiking escapade forced upon me against my will .. ugh); having to get back to my normal state of pajama lounging but with a side of swatching and blogging is proving to be nigh on impossible.

In other words, brace yourselves for 18 years worth of blog posts today, cuz there’s a huge mess over here, and WE. ARE. IN IT.  Lessss go!

It’s time for the Polish Pickup again, and I have several offerings to show you today.  Who’s ready to hoard some pretties?  (Answer:  YOU.  Every dadgum time.)  Here’s something beautiful from Top Shelf Lacquer:


The theme for the month of June is Under the Sea, and Amy made us something glorious! A non-traditional take on the theme, but fits perfectly within the Top Shelf Lacquer brand. She’s named it Caribbean Storm Cocktail, which is quite honestly the only outdoor water-related activity I’ll accept anyway.  Cuz last time I tried to be a sport, I cried in front of strangers since snorkeling IS JUST NOT NATURAL. No, it’s simply good logic to set me up under a cabana and have me look as cute and sweat-free as possible.

Take a look at the inspiration:

Now get a load of this:

Whyyyyyyy, practically twins!  Amy, you’re magic.  Is Leonardo happening next? You know, while you’re making dreams come true and all …

So this one is a denim blue shimmer with pink glass fleck and pink to gold to green color shifting flakies. It’s a mouth gaping, tongue lolling, drool EXTRAVAGANZA!  Get it on yer nails, stat. 

Under lamps:

Macros, in case staying upright is too much effort to bear. Cuz noodle legs, everywhere. 

Yep, you’re about to spend some money, I just know it. Bye bye checkbook!  Although a perfectly justified reason cuz polish emergency = trillionth degree.

I know we’ve discussed the premise of the Polish Pickup before, but in case you need a refresher, click here for the FAQs.  The Cliff Notes, though? Well, here then:

WHAT:  27 indie polish brands all coming together for a one-stop shop event; you buy one or all, it’s up to you!  Flat $3 shipping no matter what. 

WHEN:  Friday, June 2 at 11am EST thru all day Monday, June 5


The prices will vary from brand to brand, but Top Shelf’s Caribbean Storm Cocktail will retail for $12. Although a billion dollars would be fine too. FLAKIES, guys. Flakies.
