Literary Lacquers - This Dish is Cheap Yet Tasty Review | October 2019 Polish Pickup | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

I received this polish in exchange for a review, all opinions are my own. Find out more here.

Back at it with a Polish Pickup Polish. This is This Dish is Cheap Yet Tasty. The theme is Urban Legends and the polish is inspired by the urban legend of having (first) a sweater with 'This Dish is Cheap Yet Tasty' knitted into it and (second) a tattoo on a woman's body in Chinese characters, not knowing what it really meant. This polish is $13.00 and there is no cap!

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 9/6-9/9, and you can buy as many or as few polishes as you want. The shipping is $3.00 total (US) ($5.00 Canada), no matter how many polishes or other indie goodies you get, and they combine shipping if you make more than one order during the weekend!

This Dish is Cheap Yet Tasty is a deep rich magenta holo, opaque enough for stamping.



Brush macro.


Bottle macro.


Glossy nail macro.


Lord, that flare. Sometimes I forget about the basics, a super holographic, vibrant polish. What I fell in love with in the first place. 


I used two coats and this polish became fully opaque. There weren't any dry issues and it dried down to a smooth, satin/shine finish.


Matte nail macro.


Nope. This deserves to be glossy. Plain and simple.
