Anchor & Heart Lacquer: Polish Pickup December 2017



Judgy eyes, LOOK AWAY!  I know the Polish Pickup has already started. I know the blogs aren’t done. I know that proper blogger attempt has failed ONCE AGAIN with a big fat ZERO on top. Ugh. In my defense (cuz I always have one), this disturbing lack of Cheetos has got my brain all sorts of stoooopid.  And then I went and did actual work at work today and all lunchtime blogging plans = out the dadgum window.  Not sure whose idea it was to have me walking around the building doing things I get paid to do, but someone needs to STOP IT.  Cuz sadly – and surprisingly – the blogs don’t write themselves.  Booooo.

So welcome to your late but still sorta on time (as in, I still wrote the dang thing) Polish Pickup post.  I’ve got a real beauty from Anchor & Heart to show you today.  Take a look at this thing:

Ummmm, purple lovers you seeing this?  I seriously just CAN’T.  If there was ever a good time to cry over nail polish, right now would be it.  COMPLETELY NORMAL BEHAVIOR, though, in case you didn’t know.

As mentioned before, approximately a trillion times, the theme for December is Holidays Around the World. Taryn chose International Talk Like a Pirate Day, a holiday that someone FREAKING MADE UP – possibly involving wine coolers – and it somehow became famous and stuck around for more than 20 years.

WHAT? You mean, I can just invent my own holiday?  Seriously, this whole Leonardo thing has officially reached an entirely new level.   Leonardo Delivers Starbucks Day, guys. IT’S COMING. 

The inspiration:

And now, some MAGIC:


DESCRIPTION: A rich purple/red with strong blue/red/purple shifting shimmer, gold micro shreds and a smattering of turquoise holo microglitter

OPACITY:  Two coats

Glitter! (DEAD.)  Shimmer! (MORE DEAD.) If you’ve come here for the ladylike composure, you’ve picked a really terrible day.  This polish is truly glorious and everything we’ve come to love and expect from our friend, Taryn.  She voodoo’ed all of us real good this time.  Cuz you’re about to buy a cart full of nail polish, that’s why.  27 bottles plus backups for your backups.  Get on it, boo boos!

This macro, though.  Ugh.  I want to eat every last bit of that.  Except I won’t, cuz SOCIETY.  They are zero fun sometimes.

Y’all better be getting this one.  In fact, considering how the sale’s been open for about 10 hours, if you haven’t tossed her in the cart by now, well I feel var var sad about your brain.

The deets to end all deets.  Plus a cut-and-paste EXTRAVAGANZA!  Enjoy.

Price: $11

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
