B Polished Astrum | Polish Pickup April 2018 | Across the Universe: Planets & Galaxies

It is Polish Pickup season again! This time, B Polished has an inky bottle of chaos and majesty...but I might be biased because the theme is Space this month!

(promotional samples ahead)


This is a blackened jelly filled with multichrome flakes, indigo shimmer, and the occasional red spark. It is a delight. It applies deceptively opaque in two coats, and has just enough squish that it really does look like a nebula on my fingers.

I really like the finish of this one. Sometimes with dark colors, you lose all the fun stuff...especially in photos. This one is just sheer enough that the blue shimmer gives your fingers a glow.

The inspiration for this polish is Barnard 68, which is a molecular cloud in the constellation Ophiucus. The coolest thing about this particular cloud is that in the next two or three hundred thousand years, this cloud might collapse and turn into a star.

The second product from B Polished is another zesty cirtus scent in the Make It Dry drops. These drops protect your manicure from smudges and dents while speeding up the drying process. I don't have much call to use these, but I have a few scents. My eldest child is obsessed with them, and snatches them every time they arrive. I had to hide these from her just to take this photo (don't worry. They are safely in her clutches now)
