It’s been quite the year with Beyond the Nail! We’ve been part of a group called Polish Pickup, and we’ve made new connections to other indie nail polish makers and customers. PPU is a monthly indie product shop, that features mainly nail polish, but also other beauty and handmade items. Each month’s concept is mainly decided the customers who get to vote on the next month’s theme. Makers and bloggers get to showcase their creations each month on the facebook groups, as well as instagram and blogs. It’s really fun for us (as makers) because we can create new polishes that we’d normally never create.
For March 2020, the theme is Ancient History. Our inspiration is none other than the show Ancient Aliens starring starring a gentleman with big hair and an orange complexion who likes to explain the mysteries of the ancient world with the most obvious answer: Aliens. (Aliens meme anyone?)
Our nail polish creation for March 2020 is called “Aliens? Aliens.” It’s a medium grey crelly with a strong copper shimmer and copper hex glitter. Cosmetic Sanctuary described it perfectly when she noted that the copper shimmer gives the base an almost taupish like appearance.
