Moore Swatches: January Polish Pickup – Mythology


Hey Sugas!!! I hope that you all are having a wondering holiday. I won’t belabor this post, as I know many of your are travelling, spending time with loved ones etc., but I’d be remiss if I didn’t share a few of the January Polish Pickup (PPU) polishes that will be available Jan. 4th-7th.

The months theme is Mythology. Mythology is defined as a collection of myths or set of stories/beliefs, belonging to a particular religion, cultural tradition, institution, or situation, especially when exaggerated or fictitious. Makers were inspired by gods/goddesses, nature and creatures which resulted in amazing polishes.   


**All swatches are done using liquid latex Peel-off Base, glossy, QDTC and matte topcoat. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Alter Ego – Amphictyonis

Maker: Cynthia

Inspiration: Amphictyonis, goddess of wine and friendship between nations. The Olympians had wine parties and got drunk in her honor and her name is Demeter’s surname and means “a toast”. She is described as being a hilarious drunk, that she specializes in picking grapes and making them rot to make her wine-side note, not the way it is done these days, thank gawd! She loves hosting wine parties and getting drunk and she is usually seen wearing grapes attached by a leaf chain to her head, her dress is described as light as the color of wine, and she carries her basket to pick the greenest and/or the most purple of grapes.
