Fair Maiden Polish: Polish Pickup December 2017



OMG, are we done yet?  NO.  Welcome to your Bonus Blog! Y’all better be loving this cuz who carpal tunnels for no dadgum good reason?  NOT THIS LADY!

Making it short and sweet once again cuz I’m really trying to keep the momentum going.  I mean, I finished some swatching about three hours ago and then spent the next eternity changing the wallpaper in my fake bakery, sooooo .. things are going quite well on the blogging front, clearly.  How I’m not finished with all 7,397 drafts in the queue is beyond allll the comprehensions.

In my defense, I also did dishes without being asked 17 times, so obviously there is something var var wrong with my brain.  Although I refuse to do the cat poop in a timely manner; perhaps there is hope for me yet.

Okay.  Nail polish.  Take a look at what Sarah and Adrienne from Fair Maiden Polish made for the December Polish Pickup.  Brace yourself for the noodle legs!


Ooooooh, flakies!  I’m not even gonna pretend normal things are happening over here.

Once again, the theme for this month is Holidays Around the World.  Sarah and Adrienne chose Ramadan, a holy month of fasting observed by Muslims worldwide that culminates in the Eid al-Fatir festival, an important religious holiday celebrating the end of the fasting period.

Wow, in a blog full of ridiculousness, every once in a while … WE LEARN STUFF.

The inspiration photo is breathtaking:

But the polish?  Ugh.  I am no longer upright.


DESCRIPTION:  A dusky raspberry wine with fiery flame, loaded with violet purple chroma shifting flakies and both linear and scattered holo

OPACITY:  Two coats but could’ve done a billion; a legit Polish Mountain-type scenario

Do you hear angels?  I hear angels.  And I swear this thing is glowing.  I can’t even begin to express how much I love this polish.  I want it everywhere, on all the surfaces.  Cuz now is not the time for rational behavior.  18,000 bottles, and in the cart they go!  Weeee!

And now the macros.  Soooo super swoon-y!

BIG. PUDDLE. OF GOO. Well, you didn’t come here for the ladylike composure. Tongues are lolling, everywhere!

Price: $11

Be sure to read this cut-and-paste thing I did below.  Contains useful information, i.e., the most normal part of this blog.  Lap it up, y’all!  We’ll be stupid again tomorrow.
