Pretty Beautiful Unlimited – October Polish Pickup

*Press Sample

“Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?” You know who said this quote! She’s been giving little girls nightmares since 1938. October is Villain month over at Polish Pickup and Pretty Beautiful Unlimited picked an OG, original gangsta, The Evil Queen.

Let’s do a quick recap on the ins and outs of Polish Pickup:

How it works!

First, we vote on a theme. Then, participating makers, get to work on their inspiration and creations, while dropping little teasers for us to drool over. Finally, the first Friday – Monday of the month is shopping time! Choose from as few or as many brands as you like and shop with the convenience of flat rate shipping.

Let’s look at Virginia’s Evil Queen inspiration photo.



Driven by her jealousy, the Evil Queen comes up with a plan. Disguising herself she convinces Snow White to eat a poisoned apple by telling her “one bite and all your dreams will come true.” Perfectly named Just One Bite, will give you your fairy tale ending without waiting for true loves kiss.

I love Pretty Beautiful Unlimited! It’s one of my favorite indie brands. I’ve never had any issues with formula or application. There are no issues to report, Just one bite applies smoothly and evenly with no hassle.

Release Information: Friday, October 5th – Monday October 8th on the Polish Pickup website. Just One Bite has two buying options. You can purchase the polish alone for $10 or with a bar magnet (oh yes it’s magnetic) for $12.50. There is a cap of 250 bottles.


Just One Bite

This is a blackened purple with blue to purple shifting magnetic pigment and silver holographic flakies. I wanted to show you a couple of options with it being a magnetic. The glossy swatch photos are using an arc magnet. The matte swatch photos are using a bar magnet like what you can purchase with the polish. Both give a beautiful effect. Just One Bite dries on its own to a satin finish. Since it is a magnetic, you do need to work  one nail at a time using thick-ish coats. There are no issues getting the magnetic effect and even using normal coats the polish comes to full opacity quickly. For the nail art I wanted to bring the fairy tale into play and of course we couldn’t forget the mirror.
