April Polish Pick Up:Gem Glow Cuticle Balm

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Samples*
Polish Pick Up (PPU) is right around the corner and I'm about to unload some blog posts covering some of the items that will be offered!  If you are new to PPU, it is a shopping experience where a theme is voted on by customers and all brands that offer a product create something around the theme.  This month the theme is Across The Universe - Planets and Galaxies.  Today I'm sharing the Dream Polish contribution.

Let's get to the details!

This is something I've been waiting for....for literally FOREVER.  (OK, not forever, but at least a few years.)  I am a huge fan of black licorice and to align with the theme she created a Gem Glow Cuticle Balm in the scent Dark Matter (WHICH IS BLACK LICORICE SCENTED PEOPLE!!!!)  I can't contain my excitement.  I know this scent isn't for everyone, but for those of us that get shade thrown at us for liking the delicacy - this is a huge home run!!  I want black licorice EVERYTHING now!!

Loves: WOW!  Just WOW!  I am in LOVE with this product and believe me when I say "I WILL BE PICKING UP SPARES"....and then some!  I also love that Vanessa - the owner was brave to tackle this unique scent (knowing that not everyone loves it like I do) - I really really really appreciate that.

Wishes: I wish for Dark Matter scented cuticle oil, lip balm, top coat...you get the picture.

As a reminder - all Polish Pick Up products can be purchase on their website April 6th - 9th.  Everything is pre-order and $3 flat rate shipping.  Join their Facebook Group to find out all the details!

These will have no cap and will be $3.95 each.

  1. I love strawberry licorice so I'd buy the balm if it smelled like that! It's nice that there's variety in PPU.

  2. Interesting, Im not sure I would like the licorice scent but strawberry YES!

  3. Oh I'd love Dark Matter!!!!! But I have a feeling I'd start eating more candy too

  4. I love me a good cuticle balm! mine get dry so easily.

  5. I definitely need cuticle balm right about now. Mine are cracked!

  6. I love cuticle balms. They're convenient and so easy to use!

  7. I really like the concept of a cuticle balm. The scents sound very interesting.

  8. I'm not a fan of the licorice scent or taste to be honest but I do like the way that cuticle balm is applied. I'll probably skip the PPU offering but check out her shop to see if other scents are available.

    1. Spring scents are available - Cherry Blossom, Jelly Bean and Clovers and Dirt! :)

  9. Black licorice scent? OH YECK YES! I know it's a polarizing scent, and it is one that I love!

  10. Now if it was Strawberry Licorice I'd all over it!

  11. While I’m not a fan of black licorice (or really any licorice) I’m really excited for the licorice lovers out there! It’s always fun getting a new scent option that is a bit off the beaten path :)
    On another note, I need to look into cuticle balms like this one.

  12. That looks extremely easy to use, I'm all for that!

  13. I love licorice so this is very tempting for me.


Thank you for your comment. :)
