It is Ancient History month at Polish Pickup and Paint it Pretty Polish has two polishes this month. The Lost City, shown in this post, and a topper named The Sunken Kingdom. Sadly, Polish Pickup just announced changes in shipping fees for Canadians so if you are outside the US, be sure to check out their facebook post for details. No more flat rate shipping but you can still pick up about 5 bottles of polish for $6 shipping. You may want to check Indie Pickup weights more carefully than usual though.
The Lost City by Paint it Pretty Polish is a dark blue to purple multichrome with blue flakes, turquoise microflakes and shifting red/gold microflakes. Shown here with the more purple shift. I am wearing two coats which looks fine in normal lighting but I probably need a third for my photo lights. The formula is good with a decent dry time. Even with flakies, it was smooth even before top coat.
And the blue shift which has a nice glowing look to it.
As always, Polish Pickup is limited edition and you won’t be able to buy this one later. It is $12US and only 70 available. Shop March 6th to 9th. Be sure to check out the previews from Fat Cat Pawlished (Delanie) and Cosmetic Sanctuary (Lisa) as they have promos for early access codes and more every month.
There are some bigger flakies as you can see on my thumb
