Since discovering Polish Pickup earlier this year, I’m obsessed. I haven’t been able to pass up a single month. The majority of themes have really interested me, and September’s Horror Movies theme is no different!
Christy Rose of KBShimmer said, “Horror movies; for some that means silent theaters, hearts pounding, audience held in suspense on the edge of their seats until the most evil of beings jumps out and all you can do is scream. For me, the best horror movies are those that make me think, that draw me in to the world of good versus evil, that have that bit of truth making you think that maybe this could be real and I just don’t know it.”
Given that, the KBShimmer team came up with The One Soul, inspired by the movie, “Constantine”!
“No jumping out, no bloody axes, but lots of demons, and good guys battling for our souls,” Christy said. “‘Constantine’ is plagued with the ability to see what is beyond the earth, into hell and see the half-demons and half-angels that are all around. The problem? Full-fledged demons are trying to break into earth along with the son of Lucifer. Constantine is of course our hero trying to prevent this abomination from coming through.”
KBShimmer’s September PPU shade is a nod to the only soul Lucifer himself would come to collect, Constantine.
This scene, the brand said, “with its shades of light green playing against the dark shadows, sets the stage for the movie’s climax perfectly. To pay homage to The One Soul, we started with a hauntingly muted mint green base that leans blue-gray. We then added a hint of sparkle, and sparks of shimmery turquoise color. Because we had to give a nod to the horror aspect of the film, this shade is thermal, shifting to a deep midnight to near black depending on how cold your hands are.”
Some of that sparkle is a gorgeous light touch of holo. Check out my swatches:
Thermal polishes really only have a shelf life of about six to 12 months; in other words, the polish will lose the ability to shift colors and you will have a polish just one color. KBShimmer recommends letting the thermal sit at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours to allow the thermal powder to recalibrate after its journey to your door!
This was easy to apply. I used two coats over Basic Training and with Clearly on Top over it. My mani wore for several days, with tip wear and one chip, because I was roughly tearing open boxes in my garage at some point – so total user error, haha!
When open, shop the PPU website here. Remember – you can only purchase this over the first weekend of September (Sept. 7-Sept. 10)! Don’t forget to keep up with the selling platform and KBShimmer – the Polish Pickup Facebook page is here, and KBShimmer here! The One Soul will retail for $11.00 each and there is no cap.
So what do you think?! Is The One Soul one you’ll pick up in Polish Pick Up?!
