Night Owl Lacquer for Polish Pickup February 2018 | Sugar Rush!

I have a two-fer from Night Owl Lacquer today! This post is gonna be a longer one, so best settle in. The Polish Pickup is serious business this month. These sweet treats are just begging to come home with you. Hell, I might need to buy a back-up of this wax!

Night Owl Lacquer Tastes Like Purple | Polish Pickup February 2018 | Sugar Rush!

This beauty is a royal purple jelly filled with silvery holo sparks. It is just jellied enough to let the sparks glow in each layer but thick enough to be opaque in just two coats. I love how vibrant this is. It definitely tastes like purple. I didn't eat it, but I'm guessing. Polish is not food.

I hit it with my flash, and the rainbow popped right up. I wish we had sunshine here, because I bet this would be stunning in the sunshine. I really think I need this shade in every color.

And here is the live-swatch! I am actually really enjoying doing these lately! I set up a whole spot in my work space just for these now!



Caramel Popcorn Wax Melt
The other offering for the Polish Pickup this month is a wax melt in a caramel popcorn scent. It is possibly the strongest wax tart I have ever used. The scent is clean, with almost a single-note simplicity. There is a slight, faint, delicate shimmer that seems to appear when it is fully melted. I admit, this isn't my favorite scent family. I am more inclined towards clean/crisp or the woodsy, nature-inspired scents. But I found that I actually kind-of enjoyed this scent. My mom came over and liked it so well I had to share a chunk with her. My kids looooved it. The only person who didn't love it was my husband, but he is notoriously hard to please when it comes to scents.

texture: this is a very firm wax, bordering on slightly brittle. I actually like the harder texture because it makes it easier to portion out. Especially with a wax this strong, you only need a little bite.
throw: holyepicthrow, Batman! I used a tablespoon's worth, and this throw was crazypants. I could smell it for days. Every room of my 1400sqft house was filled with the warm caramel scent. I even had some windows open during the melt. Best throw ever. Ever.
cost per ounce: $1.12.  These are retailing for $2.25 each, and they are about 2oz each. I feel like that is a totally reasonable price. Definitely right in that sweet spot for impulse buys in my book.
repurchase: hells to the yes. But this wax lasts so long, I don't know when I will need more! I think I may get some other scents to mix this one with, since it is such a clean scent.

Now for the live melt!




The Polish Pickup opens February 02, 2018 at 11am eastern. Will these be on your list?

  4. LOL, definitely do not eat the polish! But if I were to put a flavor to it I'd say it's that fake grape taste.

  7. That polish is gorgeous and I'm interested in the melt but I'm worried it will be too sweet for my preference. I like the smell of caramel but it doesn't like me and tends to trigger migraines if its super sweet. I'm curious what scent you would mix this with?

    1. I like caramel with apple scents, I think the crispness mellows the sweet.
