Swatch & Review: Polish Pickup – Alter Ego


Hey y’all! Today I have new and exciting way to buy nail polish. Interested??? Keep reading!!!!

Perhaps by now you’ve heard, seen or read about Polish Pickup. But if you haven’t, this post is just for you.

What is Polish Pickup?

Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month.

How does it work?

1. SUBMIT – Theme ideas! Examples: flowers, butterflies, a movie, a tv show, a musical group, etc. Link:

2. VOTE – Organizers will choose the top 10 theme submissions and the fan group will vote on their favorite. Please note that you will be voting for a theme that will be released 2 months later. Example: Voting for May’s theme/release will take place in March. Link:

3. SHOP – You can pick which polishes you would like to purchase from the previously chosen theme. There is no box commitment. Purchase one or purchase them all! Shipping will take approximately 2-3 weeks. Link:

Overall Thoughts

Overall: Polish – I think Cynthia did a brilliant job given the inspiration theme and photo. As for the concept of the buy the polish, I love it. Its like the shopping mall of polishes. Where else can you find amazing makers/brands, equally amazing colors all in one place, that’s not a polish box. I love that you can buy what you want and don’t have to worry being stuck with those you don’t.

I do hope that you’ll join the group and get in on the fun that is Polish Pickup. I did miss the voting for the April theme, but I’m sure not to miss any more.
