Alter Ego - Macarena AAAY! (Polish Pickup May 2018 - 1990's - Pop Culture)

Press Sample/Review

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

The Polish Pick Up theme for this month is '1990's'. Cynthia from Alter Ego has made a polish inspired by the Macarena. So so 90's! Here is Cynthia's explanation for her inspiration and polish : 'It was and still is a fun sounding song and it will still bring people to their feet if they hear it. Back when it was first introduced, I felt it was a way to bring people together, everyone of all ages and abilities would start dancing it together with no concern about it other than to have a few minutes of fun!  The color is from one of the dancers, she is wearing pastel pink satin hot pants and I put a blue shimmer in it to give a nod to all the blues some of the dancers were wearing too.'

Macarena AAAY! is a pastel pink satin with blue shimmer. The colour is kind of frosty and metallic. I'm not generally a fan of frosts but this one doesn't streak or leave visible brushstrokes which is really nice. 

I used 2 coats of Macarena AAAY! and the formula was nice to work with. I finished with topcoat. I like how this is metallic but kind of pretty and girly too. It pulls between soft pink and a soft lavender/lilac because of the shimmer. 

Macarena AAAY! will be available from May 4th at 11am EST until May 7th at 11:59pm EST along with polishes from other brands with the '90's Pop Culture' theme!
