June 2020 Polish Pickup Swatches & Review

Friday, May 29, 2020

Provided for review

I am so happy to be sharing two nail polishes which will be available in the June 2020 Polish Pickup. June's theme is Cocktails and Mocktails which is making me all kinds of thirsty for a delicious fruity drink. I don't drink alcohol but I can definitely get behind a nice mocktail. There are some seriously gorgeous nail polishes for this month and the two polishes I have for your viewing pleasure are both from Canadian brands: Girly Bits and Paint It Pretty Polish.


If you want to check out live swatches of these two polishes and some of my thoughts, check out my newest YouTube video. And if you want to subscribe while you're there, that would make my day!

Paint It Pretty Polish Purple Rain ($12 USD | 15 mL | 3 coats | 70 US/5 UK cap) is a grey (hot) to purple (cold) thermal with a golden/pink magnetic shimmer and microflakes. I love love love this one! The shimmer is super intense PLUS it's a thermal PLUS it's magnetic. I used a neodymium magnet and got a pretty strong line effect which was visible in both the cold and warm states. The formula is wonderful: buttery, smooth and opaque. I used three coats but you could probably get away with two coats especially if you don't plan to magnetize it (BTW it looks great even without a magnet applied).

Girly Bits My Nink & My Drails swatch shimmer purple with blue flakes nail polish

Girly Bits My Nink & My Drails ($13 USD | 15 mL | 3 coats | no cap | 5-free | cruelty free) is a popsicle pink packed with a strong blue shimmer and blue multi-chrome flakes. This mesmerizing shade first appears to be a bright fuchsia then suddenly displays shades of violet blue and azure blue. Honestly, this polish is magical! I love it for summer and it looks amazing in the sunshine and especially the shade. Despite the super strong shimmer, the flakes really stand out. Buttery smooth formula and easy, peasy application.
