Paint it Pretty Polish has been accepted into Polish Pickup! October will be their first month so I am super excited to get my hands on this shade early to swatch it. I have worn this a few times since getting it and so many people have commented on the glowy colour. I have been that annoying “sorry, I can’t tell you what I am wearing” person a few times.
The theme for all polishes in October’s Polish Pickup is Villains. Paint it Pretty Polish went for a family friendly Villain with Bruce from Finding Nemo. Fish Are Friends, Not Food has a blue/teal base with purple/indigo Aurora pigment. Then a smattering of green/blue/purple colour shifting flakes and a pinch of holo microflakes.
It seems like there is a lot going on in Fish Are Friends, Not Food from the description, but it works well together for a cohesive look. So glowy in light and you can really see the flakies in lower lighting.

I did need a third coat of Paint it Pretty Polish Fish Are Friends, Not Food to cover my often visible nail line under my lights. That is not unusual for me and “normal” nails will probably be fine with two. The third did give it a nice depthness that was not there with two as well. It dries quickly so a third is not a problem for me.

I swear, every time I put this polish on, the sun goes into hiding. So no full sunshine snots of it but I wanted to show the difference in lighting conditions as it brings out the redder flakies and gives the base a touch more green.
