Polish Pickup February 2018 Sugar Rush Brands A Through E

It's almost time! 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 numbers through letter E. Click on the title of the product to a direct link to the item's listing in the store. Let's get started!

The Polished Hippy's 2017 Favorites Part 1

I'm a little late getting started, but I am no less excited to share with you the favorite polishes featured on the blog in 2017! These are in alphabetical order and there will be three posts in total, because there was so much fantastic polish I tried in the year. This doesn't include *all* of my favorites, because I didn't have time to photograph everything I wore, but there is still plenty to look back on with fondness. Click on the name of each polish to see the original review. Let's get started...
