Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Excellent Day for an Exorcism Review | September 2018 Polish Pickup


Happy Wednesday! This week has been hectic but is looking more easy-going after today. As you might be able to tell, I'm trying to be a blogger again. We'll see if I can make a real run of it this time! This September theme for Polish Pickup is Horror Movies (YAY!) and this polish is inspired by The Exorcist. There is a cap of 150 bottles and it is $13.00.

Polish Pickup is a monthly polish shopping extravaganza! Each month, there's a new theme (voted on by group members) and makers individually decide if they want to participate and create their own polish to meet the theme. This month, the store is open from 9/7-9/10, and you can buy as many or as few polishes as you want. The shipping is $3.00 total (US) (there's a $5 flat rate for Canada), no matter how many polishes you get, and they combine shipping if you make more than one order during the weekend!

I have always been a fan of The Exorcism. It was one of my favorite movies as a kid and I still own it to watch when I'm feeling nostalgic, so I was thrilled when I saw it was the inspiration for this polish!


Look at the shimmer in this polish. It's stunning against the gorgeous grey base. This instantly became a holy grail polish.

The flakies really come to play with the matte top coat. I love how this turned out matte!
