Polish Pickup February 2018 Sugar Rush Brands F Through M

I'm back with more wonderful products from the Polish Pickup! The Polish Pickup is an exciting monthly pre-order extravaganza for all kinds of indie polish and complimentary indie beauty and jewelry products. Every month, members of the Facebook group Polish Pickup Pack vote on a theme, and all the makers produce products on that them. Then the products go up for pre-order the next month and you can buy one or all! And the shipping is flat rate $3 for US customers, no matter how much you buy. Amazing! For February the theme is Sugar Rush - inspired by all things sweet and delicious, I ate waaay too much candy while trying out all the products. This month you can pre-order these from February 2 at 11AM EST through 11:59PM EST February 5. This month I have received the majority of the products this month and have been on an adventure photographing them all! I have almost 400 photos to show you and it will be split up over three posts. Today I have brands starting with letters F through M. Click on the title of the product to a direct link to the item's listing in the store.

Fair Maiden Polish Cosmic Confection  is a teal-to-violet multichrome scattered holo with holo microglitters. It has such an interesting unusual shift, and the glitters lie pretty flat so it is easy to smooth out with top coat. Perfect formula. I wore it in three thin coats, but two will do.

Price: $11

Femme Fatale Cosmetics Mermaid Candy is inspired by mermaid candy bark. It is a sheer turquoise shimmer polish with aqua/pink multichrome flakes, holo glitters, blue-green iridescent duochrome flakes, and violet holographic shards. It will work as both a regular polish and a topper. I wore it here in four thin coats and it dried quickly. There was no problem getting an even coverage of glitter and though it requires top coat to smooth, it was not excessive considering how glitter packed it is.

Price: $12.50

Forty Winks Jewelry Chirin-Chirin Earrings and Ring are named for the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound of the bells on an ice cream truck. They are inspired by Japanese rose ice cream.

You can select an adjustable ring, or two different diameters of earrings.

It Girl Nail Art Mini Stamping Plate LE 101 Sugar Rush is a custom designed and US-made stamping plate just for us, guys! It is 6 by 4 cm and features candy-themed images. It is nicely etched.
