December 2019 Polish Pickup “Winter’s Coming”

December 05, 2019

Hello my fellow mermaids!

Today I have for you a swatch & review of the December Polish Pickup “Winter’s Coming” contributions from Colores de Carol, Cupcake Polish, Cuticula and Glisten & Glow.

In case you’re not familiar with Polish Pickup, it’s a pre-order event that happens the first weekend of every month (Friday 11am EST to Monday 11:59pm EST) where you can purchase products from different indie maker all in the same place, and all within the same theme, this time being “Winter’s Coming”. This month it will run from December  02 to December 06, and the dates are different so that makers can have time to process orders and send them before Christmas.

Polish Pickup offers US Shipping for $3, Canada is $5 and international varies.

Let’s get into the swatches!
