Polish Pickup Flora and Fauna February 2020
Anchor & Heart Iron Anchor Strengthening Base & Nail Treatment in Blackberry Magnolia scent. This is one of my favorite indie bases - it dries quickly and the scents are nice!

Anchor & Heart Lacquer Shake It, Nudibranch is inspired by the toxic and flamboyant Spanish Shawl Nudibranch. It is a purple-based blue-red-gold multichrome shimmer with red-to-green multichrome iridescent flakes. I wore it in four thin coats, but two or three will cover. This has mega shift and a nice, fast-drying formula.

I wore it in four thin coats for maximum flakies, but two or three will cover. Nice, fast drying formula. It dries matte but is shown here with top coat.

Nail Hoot Indie Lacquers Rockin Robin is a robin's egg blue with black square and hex glitters. It has a touch of pink-to-gold duochrome microflakes in the bottle, but it is pretty opaque so those hide on the nail. It has a fast-drying good formula and there is no problem getting glitters out. It needs top coat for shine and smoothness. It was inspired by the robin's egg.

Price: $9.49 / no cap

Peachtree Polish Lilacs In Bloom is inspired by the Georgia-born maker's first time seeing (and smelling) lilacs in Wisconsin! It is a lilac jelly with green-to-blue multichrome flakes and the tiniest green matte and holo microglitters. I wore it in four thin coats, but three covered - note the maker is increasing the opacity for the customer version, so it should be opaque in two coats. It had a great formula and the glitters lie pretty smooth.

Price: $11 / 75 cap

Pretty Beautiful Unlimited Neon Rainbow was inspired by rainbow tulips. It has a greenish-white jelly base with green-to-pink duochrome shimmer, holo shimmer, and matte neon glitters in various sizes, colors and shapes. I wore it in four thin coats, but three will cover. This does benefit from putting the bottle upside down a bit before using for maximum glitter coverage. It needs top coat to smooth.
