OMG, we made it. Not quite on time, but that is beside the point. Cuz there’s still two and half more days left of the Polish Pickup sale and all the blogs are done. Weeeee! Seriously, if PROFESSIONAL BLOGGER EXTRAORDAIRE is what you’re thinking, you’d be CORRECT. Send bonus points! And a Starbucks just in case.
Okay, now FOCUS. Cuz it’s Polish Emergency plus jazz hands and some serious business up ahead. It’s Anya’s with Lucky 13 Lacquer’s first time in the Polish Pickup, y’all, and now we have to buy up all the things. Take a look at what you’re getting:

Purple lovers, pay attention! This thing’s got your name written allll over it. (For real. I checked.) According to Anya, it’s full of brightness and joy, and I’d truly have to agree. It’s happiness poured in a bottle, and for that – we lub it lots!
Last reminder that this month’s theme is Fandoms, and Anya was inspired by that one time she drunkenly yelled, “Hodor!” at actor Kristian Nairn who was getting ready to DJ at a club in Seattle. I’ll admit I had to look this one up, cuz anything outside my Leonardo DiCaprio frame of reference gets a bit lost on me sometimes. Apparently Kristian plays Hodor in Game of Thrones, a show that I wish I have been watching but it’s now on it’s 9,000th season and if I can’t get through this pile of 57 back issues of US Weekly sitting on the table, I’m prettttty sure I can’t get caught up on GoT.
And now the polish:
THAT ONE TIME DRUNK ME YELLED “HODOR!” AT HODOR
DESCRIPTION: A periwinkle crelly base with silver, ice blue and hint of lime green holographic glitters with ice blue shimmer
OPACITY: Two coats were pretty good, but I did a third to make sure all the spots were covered. Most of you won’t need a third, but I did this swatch at 2am on a work night and with one eye sleeping because I can’t go to bed like a normal person.
More convincing (and ultra swoon-y scenarios) down below!
Cuz hers a pretty lady, that’s why!
In addition to the nail polish, Anya also has a scented top coat up for sale. It’s called Fire and Blood and it smells like burning wood and dragon’s blood. Assuming on that last bit cuz I don’t watch Game of Thrones; however, if you’d like to know who played the Bachelor each year since 2002, I got you boo boo. Regardless, it’s a warm, comforting scent; a bit musky with a touch of something spicy, maybe nutmeg or cinnamon or perhaps some patchouli.
In other words, it’s a crapshoot. It just smells good, and that’s all you really need to know. It lasted on my nails the entire next day before I was forced to take it off (ugh, responsibilities) and I could smell it even when my nails were nowhere near my nose. It’s sooooo good! Totally worth a toss in the shopping cart, if you ask me.
Now here’s where that emergency comes in. The Polish Pickup sale ends at 11:59pm EST on Monday, November 6 and then the polish goes away FOREVER. And I swear, if you’re waking up on November 7, sad and polish-less, I am var var concerned about your brain. CUZ WE’VE BEEN OVER THIS BEFORE, about a trillion times at least.
Oh, and the polish retails for $7 and the top coat retails for $5. But happiness is PRICELESS, just so you know.
