September Polish Pickup: Trick or Treat

 Press Sample

Halloween is my favorite holiday so this is a theme I will always be excited for. Give me Halloween polishes year round. While these are not your typical black and orange polish, I can see imagine pumpkin and witch nail art on all of these. Plus you’ll get them in time for Halloween, since they are available on September 3!

SHOP, Facebook, Instagram

Alter Ego Pink Pumpkin: 3 coats. Then matte.
Cost & Cap: $10, no cap.
Inspiration & Color Description: Pink shimmer with holo flakes and glitter.
Thoughts: I have definitely seen fun pink pumpkin Halloween decor. While I’m more dark and muted colors, I love the idea of pastel Halloween haha. This builds up nicely but still has a bit of sheerness. I believe this is the last PPU offering from Alter Ego, and I will definitely miss her unique colors!



Warm Apple Cider Sugar Scrub
Cost and Cap: $10, no cap.
Scent: Warm Apple Cider scrub is the perfect nod to fall and all its comforts. The warmth of simmering cinnamon is accented by the sweetness of juicy apple.  The spice of clove adds depth, while a subtle hit of bourbon adds interest to this fall scent.  A soft, cream-colored scrub is accented by a cider-like, rust-colored swirl.  Our new heat-sealed lid will ensure your vegan hand and body sugar scrub arrives to you leak-free!
Thoughts: I love the new heat seal and I definitely have some leaks from these scrubs since they are heavy with the oils. This scent is warm and yummy and perfect for fall!

KBShimmer Witch Please: 3 coats. 2 had tiniest VNL. Then matte.
Cost & Cap: $11, no cap.
Inspiration & Color Description: Witch Please nail polish is a grape-leaning purple crelly loaded with flakes. Color-shifting flakes shift from orange, pumpkin-like hues to gleaming shades of burnt orange and gold. Silver holo flakes add a unique sparkle to the polish, with a more glowy rainbow glimmer added to be reminiscent of a Halloween night sky.  Best in 2 coats, this cinema-inspired polish will be perfect for your next Halloween movie night.
Thoughts: Another famous KB flakie-bomb and I can't get enough. It has a nice purple base that is not too dark and then loads, and I mean loads, of shifting flakes. I could see some witch hat stamping on this! Lovely!


Stella Chroma

Chocolate Emulsified Sugar Scrub
Cost & Cap: $6.50 for 2.5 oz jar, no cap
Scent: When it comes to trick or treat, how much better does it get than chocolate? Our scrub is scented with a rich, pure chocolate scent this month. Scrumptious
Thoughts: This is literally chocolate! It's more like an in between of milk and dark (is that semisweet) as it's sweet but not too sweet. As always, I love the softening scrub but it also removes the yucky dead skin.

Stella Chroma Harvest Moon: 2 coats. Then matte.
Cost & Cap: $13 for 15mL, no cap.
Inspiration & Color Description: Inspired by the oh-so-gorgeous Harvest Moon (and the Neil Young song if you ask Mr SC), this shade has a deep purple base and a heavy helping of blue/red/gold shifting shimmer. It’s accented by holographic flakies. This multichrome shade is opaque in 2 coats. 
Thoughts: Gorgeoussss! This is one of those night sky polishes and would be a gorgeous background for a pumpkin patch at night art. The blue to purple to red is super shifty. At super extreme angles, you can see some gold! I also love this matte! Holo flakes are the best.


These polishes and both & body products will be available September 3rd-6th in the Polish Pickup shop. Shipping is flat rate $3 in the US and starts at $6 to Canada.
