Pahlish: Polish Pickup December 2017



The blogging frenzy continues!  Real quickie this afternoon cuz I’ve already fallen asleep like 18 times since typing this sentence.  One of these days, I’ll sleep like a normal person, I swear it.

More Polish Pickup goodies! Take a look at what Shannon with Pahlish made for us:

It’s the neutral to end all neutrals! Cuz somebody tossed a bunch of flakie business in there, and now my brain’s officially stopped holding my mouth shut. Drool is imminent plus 27 levels of other ladylike scenarios.

A reminder in case you haven’t been reading all my Polish Pickup blogs – in which case, we need to have a chat about priorities – but the theme for December is Holidays Around the World. Shannon chose cookies. Shannon chose CORRECTLY.

Stupid diet. Am I skinny yet?  UGH.

The inspiration pic:

Inspired by the German Lebkuchen cookie, which is a holiday tradition in my family. As long as I can remember, one of my aunts has been baking these and sending boxes out to family across the country. Getting your annual box of Lebkuchens in the mail is sort of the unofficial start to the holiday season for us!

— Shannon, Pahlish

The cookie, in polish form:


DESCRIPTION:  A soft gingerbread brown with iridescent flakies and scattered holographic sparkle

OPACITY:  Three coats, even though two was pretty good

And there’s just enough darkness in this color to make my sad, white sausages look not so sad and sausage-y.  Hooray!  Formula was nice as well; applied smooth and even and without any effort.  Which is good considering it was probably 2am and one eye was sleeping.

Macros for good measure:

If you’ve got a thing for flakies, how happy are you right now?  (VERY.)  Get this one on the shopping list, cuz you’re a decisioning kinda lady, that’s why.

Price:  $11

And now, some very important cut-and-paste information. I’m soooo good at blogging, you guys!

WHAT: 50-plus 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. Combined shipping is offered as well so go ahead and make 42 separate orders; it’s all good (crazy, but good).

WHEN: Friday, December 1 at 11am EST thru all day Monday, December 4
