I don’t know much about video games because most of my time as a kids was spent out doors; riding bikes and playing at the playground and if the weather were bad and didn’t allow for outside adventure, I get lost for hours playing with my barbies and cabbage patch kids. My cousins had video games though and I remember the few times they would let me play Sonic the Hedgehog on Sega, Duck Hunt or Super Mario Bros on Nintendo. When I got older, I my parents bought me a Gameboy and I played Tetris for hours on that thing.
While I never got into COD, Legend of Zelda, Mindcraft or the new one….ummmmm… Fortnite, video games are one of those all-American pastimes that will never fade. This month the members have spoken and selected video games as the theme for the June Polish Pickup (PPU). And if your new to PPU, here’s how it works:
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.
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.
3. SHOP – You can pick which polishes you would like to purchase from the chosen theme. There is no box commitment. Purchase one or purchase them all! Shipping will take approximately 2-3 weeks.Easy! Right?! Good! June PPU is right around the corner and shopping begins June 1st and today I have 8 of the polishes that will be available!
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issues (liquid latex Peel-off Base) by Vapid, She Shines (glossy, QDTC) from Alter Ego and Matte topcoat (matte topcoat) by My Indie Polish. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
