Polish Pickup Returns! Presenting Sandy by KBShimmer

Press Sample

After officially taking the month off for July, Polish Pickup is making an entrance with its Musicals theme for the month of August! This month, indie nail polish makers have been inspired by theatrical musicals, film adaptations, and television musical twists alike. Pull up a seat and get comfortable for the first act of my musical-themed reviews! For today's post, I have Sandy by KBShimmer to share with you. Let's check it out!

Brand owner Christy considers Grease to be one of her favorite movies, so when the theme of Musicals was selected, she already knew where she would be pulling her inspiration. The film starts with our two young lovebirds on the beach, and this is what inspired Sandy.

Sandy starts off with a base the colour of a sandy beach before being loaded up with a shimmer that shifts from the pink of sunset to the blue of Danny's eyes. Holographic glow flakes are then added to jazz up this gorgeous nude polish with sparkle to get you through even the longest of office meetings.

I'm a fan of musicals in general, but I do have a soft spot for Grease in particular. I was very involved with the drama activities in high school, and we performed Grease my freshman year. My part was very minor as an extra student throughout the show, but it was still so much fun to be involved! I was really excited to see KBShimmer use it for their inspiration, and the resulting Polish Pickup exclusive shade is stunning!

Those that are already familiar with the brand know that the formulas of KBShimmer nail polishes are top notch, and Sandy is no exception to the rule. Even with all the shimmer and glow flakes, Sandy applies with just a few smooth and easy strokes of the brush. While two coats might be enough for some to reach opacity and cover any visible nail line, I opted to add a third coat. I then topped my nails off with KBShimmer's Clearly on Top top coat so an extra shiny and lasting finish for these photos.

Sandy will ONLY be available for purchase from the Polish Pickup from August 3rd through the 6th. It will retail for $10 per bottle, and there is no cap on how many bottles will be made available. Please note that all Polish Pickup orders are submitted as a preorder and to allow three weeks for polishes to be shipped out to you.

Will you be adding Sandy to you Polish Pickup wishlist? What are your favorite musicals? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
