Alter Ego - Not A Mother Day (Polish Pick Up December 2017)

Press Sample/Review

Hi everyone! I have the November Polish Pick Up Exclusive from Alter Ego for you today! 

Alter Ego - Not A Mother Day

This month's Polish Pick Up theme is 'Holidays Around The World'. Once again, Cynthia chose something a little outside the box. She originally was going to do a Mother's Day inspired polish but was prompted to do something a little different! Here is what she had to say about her inspiration : 

'The holiday Alter Ego chose really is not a holiday but I am making it one! A member mentioned in the holiday inspo thread that those who cannot be mothers should have a day and another agreed, as I do too. Such a shame that women who truly want children but by whatever life hands them cannot have any children and as much as some would say, “why not adopt”, that is a costly and years long effort most cannot afford. So I went searching for some kind of recognition. After many pages later, all I found was a support group for those are childless-by-circumstance, whatever those circumstances are. Although I never had children, I am old now & thought it may be deemed inappropriate for me to join so all I have is this link. The home page says it is US wide and offers support groups in several cities. “Not A Mother Day” will be the colors of this group’s logo. Please do not burn me at the stake for trying to give comfort, solace and recognition to those who need it.'

This is inspiration photo for the polish. Here is a group for those who are childless by circumstance. This is the group that Cynthia found and she used their logo as the color inspiration for her polish.




Not A Mother Day is a shimmery white full of black and red microglitter. I used 2 coats and finished with topcoat. The finish looks a little textured because of the microglitter but is actually quite smooth with topcoat. I used a thin topcoat but you could also use something thicker like Seche Vite to be sure. 

Alter Ego - Not A Mother Day

Not A Mother Day will be available from December 1st at 11am EST until December 4th at 11:59pm EST along with polishes from other brands with the 'Holidays Around The World' theme!
