Hello lovely readers! It’s that time again, Polish Pickup is opening this weekend to give us a blast from the past with an 80’s theme! Let’s get to some swatches!

Baroness X acetone antidote in Captain Crunch Berries

  • Inspiration: Captain Crunch Berries cereal, included is a fun scratch and sniff sticker!
  • Price: $4.25
  • Cap: None

I normally add an entire vial to an 8 ounce pump bottle of pure acetone and I don’t get the ashy dryness from the acetone on my cuticles, and a light lingering scent on my fingers afterwards.

Baroness X: Plasma Globe- a deepened dark base has multichrome magnetic pigment shifting though blue/purple/pink/copper/greenish gold with floating iridescent flakies shifting from pink/copper/gold/green and a sprinkling of hot pink holo shard microglitter.

  • Inspiration: Demi always wanted a plasma globe as a kid, so here we are!
  • Price: $11.50
  • Cap: None

Swatches show two coats magnetized with topcoat. The background is an inky black and the multichrome magnetic pigments mostly appears blue with shifts of purples, golds, and pinks on angles. This has a lot of movement in the final look, and no texture after topcoat.

By Dany Vianna: Ranger- A leaf green crelly filled with golden shimer, gold metallic flakies and gold UCC flakies, and holographic flakies

  • Inspiration: Hank for the Dungeons and Dragons animation
  • Price: $11.50
  • Cap: 100

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a rich, buttery feel on application and builds quickly on the nail. The shimmer and flakies are strong and give a lovely contrast to that rich green base.

Cameo Colours Lacquers- Princess of Power: an off white crelly base with a scattered holo sparkle, full of red/magenta/gold shimmer, copper/gold/fuchsia UCC, hot pink, silver holo and gold micro flakes.

  • Inspiration: She-ra
  • Price: $11
  • Cap: 185 US/15 UK

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula feels very crelly like, and builds up easily. The base color is what I would consider an off white with just the lightest touch of pink to it. There’s a dense sparkle all over. I’d recommend a glossy topcoat here to really make those sparkles pop.

Delush Polish: The Luck Dragon- a blackened multi chrome magnetic polish that morphs from turquoise to purple and features glowing aurora shimmer accented with captivating gold and ultra chrome chameleon flakies that come alive when you apply any magnet.

  • Inspiration: The Neverending Story
  • Price: $12.95 (with magnet)
  • Cap: 90US/5UK

Swatches show two coats magnetized with topcoat. Formula feels medium and builds up quickly to opacity. This has what I call the galaxy sparkles, they look like tiny holo shreds that give a dense sparkle. The magnetic pigment is very shifty and mostly appears as a turquoise and shifts to purple. The background has a lovely aurora pigment glow. I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to really make this one pop too.

Emily de Molly: Cute as a Button!- A purple that leans almost a light denim blue with iridescent flakes that shift through orange, pink and green.

  • Inspiration: My child doll
  • Price: $11.00
  • Cap: 135

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a dense, buttery feel on application and easily builds up. The base color is a bit of a chameleon; it has a very subtle blue undertone so depending on your lighting it’ll have a blue lean to it. It is however, what I would consider a lovely lilac. The flakes here give a very strong opalescent appearance and lay down flat. No texture after topcoat.

Indie by Patty Lopes: Little Scented Doll- Pink base with shimmer duochrome, micro holo glitters black/pink, flakies multichrome.

  • Inspiration: My Little Pony
  • Price: $12.00
  • Cap: 80

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels on the medium side, and builds up quickly. This has a metallic feel on the overall finish and has a very dense sparkle. The shimmer is strong and gives a golden glow overall. I’d recommend a glossy topcoat here as well to really make it pop.

Lemming Lacquer– The Magic of Colored Lights: a mix of aurora shimmers in purple/blue, green/gold, gold/orange/pink and orange/red and a full rainbow of iridescent flakes in a clear base.

  • Inspiration: Lite Brite
  • Price: $13.00
  • Cap: 250

Swatches show one coat over black. This one is super strong over any color and loaded with aurora shimmer and flakes. The flakes are of various sizes so you’ll see a really nice rainbow effect overall. Believe it or not, it’s actually being shy here. This is a good one to see on my swatch video 😉 No texture after topcoat.

Night Owl Lacquer: It’s a Feeling, a Heartbeat- a delicate blush tinted base loaded with 2 different shades of shifting aurora shimmers that give it a glowy look.

  • Inspiration: Dirty Dancing
  • Price: $12.50
  • Cap: 360

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula feels on the medium/light side and really allows for the shimmer to give a warm glow. I feel like the shimmer is being a touch subtle in my swatches, but it’s more glowe-y in person. Another to check out on my swatch video 😀

Pahlish: ’88 Countach- a neon aqua with a mix of iridescent pink/copper/green shifting pigment and mixed iridescent multichrome flakes.

  • Inspiration: Lamborghini Countach
  • Price: $12.50
  • Cap: None

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula feels like a plump jelly and builds up quickly. This is a tricky color to photograph but it’s definitely a bright aqua. The shifty pigments here appears as a warm, bright pink and easily shifts over to green and copper at angles. The flakes create a pond effect between your layers and behaved easily.

Pretty Beautiful Unlimited: Popples Make Great Pillows- a royal blue to colorless thermal jam packed with neon glitters in various shapes and sizes and a little sprinkling of silver holographic micro glitters.

  • Inspiration: Popples
  • Price: $10.00
  • Cap: 110 US

Swatches show three thin coats with topcoat. This is a super reactive thermal that is very sensitive to temperature. The glitters picked up easily for me and I did NOT have to go fishing for them. I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to make all the goodies in here pop.

Supernatural Lacquer: Sight Beyond Site- A black jelly base with teal/purple/red/gold multichrome shimmer, small and extra large platinum silver flakes and multicolored color shift flakes.

  • Inspiration: Thundercats
  • Price: $11.50
  • Cap: None

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This feels very jelly like on application, though for a black jelly it builds up very fast. I feel like my swatches are not doing justice to all the fun flakies, shimmer and silver flakes so just know that all of those goodies are not hidden by the black base. This is super fun, and I had no issues bringing up the flakes on the brush (even the larger ones) and have no texture after topcoat.
