Swatch & Review: November Polish Pickup – Fandoms Part 1 of 3 – Brands A – E


Hey, Precious! Today I am beyond overjoyed and excited to bring you 1 of a 3 part post featuring some of the hottest indie polish/products around. It’s truly an honor and privilege to be invited as the guest blogger for Polish Pickup. Because let’s face it, Polish Pickup is like THE exclusive, pop up shopping experience for polish.

For November, the Facebook group selected fandoms as the theme and man, oh man did they do these shows justice and then some. From Netflix to daytime television, and cartoons in between, the fandoms these makers selected, are guaranteed to make your nail crazed heart smile. 

Those shopping lists won’t create themselves, so, without further ado, let’s start with brands beginning with letters A thru E. Get your pen and paper ready!
