Hello Girls, I am kinna feeling back on my foot again after not being well for a long time. Hopefully my health stays on my side now. I am also happy because I got my latest big haul last week. I got 8 Picture Polishes, 4 Different Dimensions and 1o ColorPop Lippes. Woah!! so much goodness. And can you believe they are my first picture polish, I never had one! As a thumb rule, I start swatching with the shade I like the least and get over with it.
In this case it was Picture Polish Orchid. I am not a purple fan. Though I did a recent scanning of my stash and found that I somehow own way too many purples for even a purple lover!. How is that possible? Don’t ask. I have purples in cremes, textures, pixie dusts, mattes, mettalic mattes, holos , crellies, mettalic, stamping polish and what not! And I have the audacity to say I don’t love purples. Whatever, bottom line one should not try to find logic in our stashes, hauls leaning towand likings.Ever!
By giving one look to PP Orchid I thought , this is just an ordinary purple wih usual glitters and I ended up paying 16 AUD for it 🙁 . Without the PP bottle, this polish may be worth nothing, was my first impression. But once I applied it, my fingers loved it. They looked so spring and elegant.
It is a briiliant purple polish (in artificial light) and leaned towards mauve pink in sunlight. Yes it has scattered silver holo in it, which I would not say is very strong but pretty enough. I used 2 coats for this swatch , though I think a 3 coat would have been better. The top coat applied is Orly Sec n Dry.
Now, moving on to the nail art which I am not completely impressed with. However the compliments of my friends made me belive that I have not done a terrible job. They all seemed to like it a lot.
I used the BornPretty Store newly launched stamping plate Harunouta L009 which is primarily a dainty lace pattern plate. You can buy the here and get 10% off with code HQBQ10. The stamping polish is Cream from MDU. I am thinking of using other soft images from this plate for my next mani.
So what are your thoughts on PP Orchid and my lace mani?
