Polish Pickup Written In the Stars January 2020


Grace-full Nail Polish Balance and Harmony is inspired by a Libra makeup photo (I love this, being a Libra myself!) It is a light blue (warm) to periwinkle thermal with gold flakes and pink-to-gold duochrome shimmer. I wore it in three thin coats, but two will cover and it dries quickly and matte, but is shown here with top coat.

Price: $12.50 / 80 cap

Great Lakes Lacquer The Scorpion, the Serpent, and The Phoenix is inspired by the Scorpio sign. It is a a magenta-green-blue multichrome in a deep, cool base. I wore it in three thin coats and it had a fast-drying, smooth formula.

Price: $12.50 / no cap

Nail Hoot Indie Lacquers Andromeda is inspired by the Andromeda Galaxy. It is a toffee brown jelly with lots of pink-to-gold duochrome shimmer, scattered holo shimmer, and a couple sizes of silver holo glitter. I wore it in four thin coats for maximum depth but two or three will do. It dries quickly and the glitters smooth out pretty well with a single layer of top coat. They also don't require soaking off - you can remove this polish just like normal, which is awesome for being so glitter packed!

Price: $9.99 / no cap

Pretty Jelly Nail Polish Eyes on the Prize was inspired by a Capricorn photo shoot by Tejal Patni. It is a deep plum purple with purple-to-red multichrome shimmer, blue-to-gold multichrome flakes, and holo microflakes. I wore it in three thin coats but two will cover. It dries quickly and needs top coat to smooth and shine.

Price: $12.75 / no cap

Starlight Polish I'll Make My Own Destiny is a holo topper in a clear base. It has four kinds of holo pigment - linear, scattered, microflake, and microglitter. I wore it in four coats on its own and it had a quick dry time, and I also tried it in one coat over Believe Beauty Duchess. It needs a glossy top coat if you want it super-shiny.

Price: $10 / 200 cap

The January 2020 Written In the Stars-themed Polish Pickup is open until 11:59PM EST, and remember that you can always get refunded on your shipping for going back for more items, as shipping is a flat $3 domestically. I have to admit I did that more than a few times this weekend... Have you made your picks yet?
