Hey everyone! Today I am sharing with you swatches of all the shades I own that are coming back for Rewind month! Some of these swatches are from over a year ago, since I didn’t have time to redo all of them, so you may notice some are in different styles. Regardless they all show the shades as accurate as I could get them and I hope they help you with your purchasing decisions!
Polish Pickup (PPU) is an online store that offers new indie nail polish, bath and body products, wax, and jewelry from 100+ brands every month, inspired by a different group-chosen theme. All products made each month are limited edition and can only be purchased during the first Friday-Monday of every month, when the PPU shop is open. The awesome thing about Rewind month, which is July of every year, is that some of these LE shades are brought back so you can purchase any you may have missed out on! So scroll on to see the shades that I already own. Because the makers can bring items back to both PPU and their own shops, I have listed beside each product where you will be able to find it! Rewind month can be a little confusing but I got you!
Apipila Cosmeticos Candy Land Stamping Plate | PPU Shop
This is the sweetest stamping plate you will find! From the times I have used it this plate is nicely etched, although the etching is a bit rough so cotton will grab on when you clean it. Just use a lint roller to get rid of any cotton that grabs on! Below are two manis I did with this plate. I definitely want to do that ice cream one again!
Atomic Silicate | PPU Shop
Silicate is a pink jelly with orange to pink shifting shimmer. This shade was inspired by a bicolour pink and orange tourmaline crystal. This shade is suuuuper glowy. When in direct light it looks more pinky, but in warmer or dimmer light it is quite orange and you can see some gold at extreme angles. Overall, the saturation is out of this world! Here I used three coats and one coat of glossy top coat. The last two pictures show this shade matte.
Bees Knees Lacquer Lion with a Thorn in its Paw | PPU Shop
Lion with a Thorn in its Paw is a cornflower blue jelly with an orange-gold-green shimmer and holo microflakes. This shade was inspired by the songbird from the Bioshock Games. Here’s another beauty with an incredible colour shift and microflakes! Here I used two coats, one coat of a glitter smoothing top coat, and one coat of a glossy top coat to smooth things out!
By Dany Vianna Card Captor Sakura | Maker Website
Card Captor Sakura is a thermal that shifts from warm pink (cold) to white (warm) and is filled with gold flakies and a scattering of small red glitters. This shade was inspired by the Japanese manga series Cardcaptor Sakura. This is such a beautiful feminine shade that is so perfect for Spring and Valentine’s day! I also really like that the red glitters don’t overwhelm the formula. Here I used two coats and two coats of glossy top coat. The last two pictures show this shade matte.
Bluebird The Ryan King | PPU Shop
The Ryan King is a deep hunter green jelly with a large amount of scattered holo microflakies. This shade was inspired by Ryan Gosling’s hunter green suit at the 2018 screening of the film First Man. Oh man is this green sparkly! I have already worn it twice, so that tells you how much I love it. Here I used three coats and one coat of glossy top coat. The last two pictures show this shade matte.
Fair Maiden Limey Bean | Maker Website
Limey Bean is a bright neon yellow-green with yellow-orange-green shimmer and iridescent flakies. The inspiration for this shade was lemon-lime jelly beans. This shade is LOUD and so fun! The formula is great and the flakes and shimmer really make it for me. Here I used three coats with one coat of glossy top coat.
Heather’s Hues Beat the Heat | Maker Website
Beat the Heat is a solar that shifts from a peachy orange when inside to a deep red plum when in direct UV light and is filled with iridescent purple-pink-gold-green shimmer, iridescent flakies in orange-pink-gold-green and holo shimmer. This shade was inspired by Tesla’s special “rainbow glass” designed to keep out UV rays and heat out which reduces the energy used by the electric car. I was shocked by how deep this shade gets in the sun! It’s been a long time since I’ve had a solar polish, at least 12 years. Both shades are really stunning. Here I used three thin coats and one coat of glossy top coat.
Lollipop Posse Lacquer Skip to the Sweet Shop | PPU Shop
Skip to the Sweet Shop is a bright neon purple jelly with loads of bright pink flakies, iridescent microglitters and holographic accents. The inspiration for this shade was pink and purple sprinkles. The depth in this shade is insane! It is chock-a-block full of flakies and glitters, making the more layers you use, the more detailed this polish looks on your nails. Here I used three thin coats and two coats of glossy top coat, since the glitters did cause it to dry with some texture. This shade also looks quite cool matte since there is so much going on in it.
Pahlish Crystal Ice Caves | Maker Website
Crystal Ice Caves is a sparkly aqua holographic with a strong green/blue shifting glow. This shade was inspired by Icelandic Ice Caves. This shade actually has a fairly transparent base but is so packed full of flakies that it easily builds up to opacity! I probably should have taken some angled shots to show off that blue glow it has at extreme angles, but alas, I dropped the ball. Here I used two coats, one coat of a glitter smoothing top coat, and one coat of a glossy top coat to smooth things out!
The Lady Varnishes She Lavas Me, She Lavas Me Not | PPU Shop
She Lavas Me, She Lavas Me Not is a deep indigo crelly with red to green flakies and glitters, red to gold shimmer and blue holo glitters. This shade was originally from the Mythology theme and was inspired by Pele, the goddess of volcanoes. So far this has been the only shade from PPU where I have been disappointed with the formula. It is quite thick and does not self level AT ALL so you really do have to pile on the top coat to make it look even halfway decent. However, once you do have the top coat on, look at how gorgeous the shade is! I can only hope the formula will be better with this third re-release. Here I used three thin coats and two coats of glossy top coat.
Tips Trolls | PPU Shop
Trolls is a light mint-blue crelly filled with different shapes and sizes of neon pink, neon yellow, neon green and orange glitters. This shade was inspired by the infamous Trolls dolls with all their different colours of crazy hair! This shade is so bright and so fun! Here I used three coats, one coat of a glitter smoothing top coat, and one coat of a glossy top coat to smooth things out!
