Alter Ego - Saturdays are for Sven (Polish Pickup September 2018 - Horror Movies)

Press Sample/Review

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

The Polish Pick Up theme for September is 'Horror Movies'. Cynthia from Alter Ego has made a polish inspired by Svengooliem a horror movie host from Chicago. He runs all the classic horror movies like Dracula etc and his show airs on MeTV. He has long time gags and gives trivia info about each movie and facts about the major actors in evening movie. 

I'm not at all familiar with Cynthia's inspiration this month but she explained that Svengoolie is often shown wearing a black suit with a red shirt and he opens and closes the show standing in a purple lined coffin. Cynthia took this colour inspiration to create her polish 'Saturday's are for Sven' which has a black base with red microglitter and metallic yellow and purple microflakies.

I used 3 thin coats of Saturdays are for Sven. The shimmer and sparkle in this one is lovely as usual with Cynthia's polishes. I'll apologise for my super nub, I broke a nail gardening and had to file them down and as usual, it happens when I've got swatching to do! Anyway, the polish is still beautiful and the formula was great. The first coat was a bit uneven but it levels out nicely with good opacity on the second coat. I only did 3 to be sure. I topped with topcoat as always. 

Saturdays are for Sven will be available from September 7th at 11am EST until September 10th at 11:59pm EST along with polishes from other brands with the 'Horror Movies' theme! 

The non-polish products from Polish Pickup, like last month, are now separate and sold during Indie Pickup. I'll be posting soon with Cynthia's product for that. Until then, here is the Polish Pickup info as usual! Enjoy!
