NAILS | Picture Polish Imperial Swatch

Now that I have been so focus on CBBxManiMondays, I haven't really gone back to just swatches of cool polishes that I have in my nail polish collection, but since I am on vacation I will spoil myself with doing my nails 3x in one week! I hesitated though because a big reason for my taking vacation is to massively clean and declutter the beauty room which has now bled over into the bedroom and living room. I just really want my life back so I'm slowing down a bit on accepting press samples and really working on blogging about what I think is interesting to me (and you!) and hasn't been talked about to death. You will notice that while I talk about brands, I don't talk about brands like Benefit, Too Faced or even Urban Decay even though I actively use their products. I figure you guys have seen swatches, reviews and enough talk about them that you don't need to hear more. Or do you? Anyway, I digress so let's get back to the matter at "hand" - the polish!

When it comes to nail polish, Picture Polish never ever lets me down and I constantly buy their polishes because each shade is just so stunning. Yes, they are mostly glitter or holo, but in my mind there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. Today's shade is a blogger collaboration with The Swatchaholic who I believe is exclusively on Instagram now even though I started this blog in part because of bloggers like her all those years ago. Imperial is a blue-based purple with holo and small gold hex glitter. The formula is on the more liquid side so you will need anywhere from 2-3 coats depending on how thickly you are applying them. The finish is matte, but I love shiny finishes way too much to keep it that way so I finished off my manicure with one coat of CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat*.

You can find Picture Polish at Nail Polish Canada and Harlow & Co.
