I have some sweet, sweet Sweet Heart Polish to share today. I am feeling bloggerly, and Polish Pickup is always there with something to talk about
The theme this month is 1980s, which...if I am honest...I was not excited for. The 80s, for me, is avocado green, weird denim, and asbestos dolls. But I am happy to say that I am blown away by the variety from our makers this month. No, really. Some people have really gone for it with their inspirations, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of "phoned in" items. There are both neon crazy things and some really restrained, beautiful things. It's all pretty rad.
This month, I have a single shade from Sweet Heart Polish. It is a neutral gray cream-jelly filled with multi-sized hexes in pinks, white and black. I love how the bottle itself works with the polish. It iscoordinated and purposeful. Cassandra was inspired by Pretty in Pink, which is a classic 80s movie. I think I watched it at a sleepover in the 90s for the first time, but it definitely informed my friends and my fashion choices for a few months.
"One of my favorite movies ever is Pretty In Pink! As soon as I heard that the 80's had won, I immediately envisioned this very polish. [It] is named after the scene where Andie is in the record store waiting for Blane to pick her up for their date."
I used two coats, plus a layer of Seche Vite for this pictures. It dried fairly smooth, though if you like that glassy finish I would slap on a top coat sammich. I wore this for about a week, and I got a lot of compliments on it. For lacquerheads, it is a very classic formulation...and it is done so well. You get the depth and sheerness of the base that lets the glitters shine through, but it is opaque enough to not have four thousand coats.
This will be available from The Polish Pickup on 03 May at 11am eastern. It is priced at a super friendly $9 and there will be 75 bottles available. If you have to wear neutral shades for work, but you love a sneaky punch of color I definitely recommend this one.
