Polish Pickup Fairy Tales November 2019

Bee's Knees Lacquer When Water Sang Fire is a green-toned gray jelly with holo microflakes and red-to-green multichrome shimmer. It is worn here in three thin coats and has a nice formula. This has a wide brush with rounded end.

Inspiration: Inspired by the tale When Water Sang Fire by Leigh Bardugo, this polish reflects Ulla unusual skin tone, her ambition to do the impossible, and her determination.

Price: $12 / no cap

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Chicken Legs & Mortars & Pestles, Oh My! is a gray-black jelly with holo microflakes, red-to-green multichrome flakes and multichrome iridescent flakes. It is shown here in three thin coats and it had a quick-drying formula.

Inspiration: Here at Lollipop Posse Lacquer, we love a good old weird witch! That's why we decided to pay tribute to the Baba Yaga, an enigmatic figure from Russian/Slavic folklore who may appear to help or hinder. She traverses the forest in her chicken-legged hut, and flies through the air in her steel mortar and pestle.

Inspiration: Belle's dress and the gold details in the ballroom scene of the live action version of Beauty and the Beast.

The Soapy Chef Off to Work We Go Scoopable Wax is inspired by Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and features layers of seven different wax colors and scents! It comes with a plastic scoop or you can scoop it out with your fingers (I also like the brand's scoopable waxes as cuticle balms!) It has a fresh but not overpowering herbal fruit scent. I've also included a video of 10 minutes of melting sped up to 1 minute.

Description:  This 8 layer, 4 oz, scoopable wax is a blend of traits of each of the dwarfs and a little bit of Snow White on top.

Scents From bottom to top:
Bashful(red with pink glitter): White tea, ginger
Sleepy(blue with yellow glitter): Lavender, honey
Sneezy(Pink with black glitter): Pepper, rosemary
Happy(Orange): orange sorbet, coconut cream, vanilla
Dopey(Lavender with green glitter): fruity cereal and milk
Grumpy(Brown): bergamot, citrus, cognac, tobacco
Doc(Green): Spearmint
Snow White(White with white glitter): orange, allspice, clove, pine

Instructions for use: Simply scoop as much as you like into your wax warmer and enjoy the amazing aroma!

Ingredients:  Soy Wax, paraffin wax, coconut oil, fragrance oil, essential oil, wax colorant, cosmetic glitter


Price: $8.50 / no cap
