Swatch My Untrieds - PPU February 2018

Hello! Today I'm back with another swatch my untrieds post, with even more past Polish Pick Up goodies. If you thought that the ones I shared last time from June 2018's Video Game month (post here) were old, you're in for a treat as these are from even further back! Today I'm finally sharing my picks from February 2018's Sugar Rush month. Read on for my full swatches and a quick look at a few nail care bits I also purchased!

To make this post slightly more relevant, the Nail Hoot polish is actually available throughout this month for PPU rewind! I'll include more details at the end.

Nail Hoot 'The Snozzberries Taste Like Snozzberries' is a deep purple jelly base with purple glass fleck shimmer, and both pink and blue holographic microglitters. This was inspired by the snozzberries in Willy Wonka. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. The jelly base means that this is sheer to begin with, but it builds up. I added a thicker third coat for better opacity. Below is three coats with topcoat.

My Indie Polish 'Bubblegum Ice Cream' is a bright blue crelly base with metallic fuchsia flakes. This was simply inspired by bubblegum ice cream. The formula is smooth and easy to apply, and the flakes lie flat on the nail. I had a couple of lighter streaks after two coats, so added a third. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Dollish Polish 'Queenbee's Whizbees' is a watermelon coral base with shifty iridescent flakes, small glitters, and a red shimmer. The formula is smooth and even to apply. This starts off on the sheer side, but builds up nicely. I applied three coats to fully cover my nail line. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Now onto nail care items. Sweet, sugary scents are my weakness, so I really had to whittle my list down. I grabbed Stella Chroma's chocolate orange scented emuslified sugar scrub, Cuter Cuticles barrier butter in the fuzzy peach scent, and Ever After Polish's cuticle crelly in the scent candy crush (which also came with a mini candy crush cuticle oil). All smell just as good as I had hoped and have been keeping my hands/nails in top condition.

What do you think? This was possibly one of my favourite months for Polish Pick Up. It was the biggest order I've placed so far, and I could have easily picked up so much more! I have a definite sweet tooth which extends to sweet scents, and apparently to sweet-themed polish too!

As mentioned, you can purchase Nail Hoot 'The Snozzberries Taste Like Snozzberries' until the 31st of July for PPU rewind month. It is available on the Nail Hoot website here, and also on the Girly Bits website here.

Hope to see you in the next post!
