piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2012: Dorothy and White Wedding

I cannot even tell you how excited I am to get to participate on piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2012 this year. I was sent two brand new shades which are being released today to try out. Since piCture pOlish is all about creating a scene with their polishes, I decided to take a break from my usual swatch background and do something fun. I hope you enjoy...

Dorothy  - created for the land of Oz!
A red base packed with red, fuchsia and silver glitter. This is part of the "mesh" line of polishes. It is so densely packed that it covers the nail completely with just one coat. I did end up using two just for the heck of it. Application was great. It dries a bit gritty as I would expect from a shade like this so a nice thick topcoat is great to go with it....

I even used Dorothy to paint a pair of tiny shoes to match and accented them with none other than little rhinestone hearts for bows. I can just picture Dorothy clicking the heels of this tiny pair. The background, inspired by the pattern of Dorothy's dress really completes the scene for me...

As you can imagine, it is super sparkly and just gorgeous outside. Here a a few shots in full sun...

White Wedding (by Llarowe) - it's a nice day for this one!
A creamy jelly white with tiny multi-color and holo flecks. It is fairly sheer with the nail line still faintly visible after three coats. It would probably look just as great layered over a white polish for those that really dislike the visible nail line. Personally I think it looks great as it is, somehow the sheerness adds to the softness. I gave it a minute or two between each coat to let the jelly-like formula set a bit. No problems with dragging or pulling. Very nice, even coverage. These are with a top coat...

It is hard to see the multi-color flecks in the indoor shots and the camera had a hard time capturing any color at all. All the white flecks that you see are actually different colors...

A few shots in the sun. This is not full sun as it was playing hide and seek all day. Still you can see just how sparkly it is in the sunlight...

A closeup and finally a few of the colors captured on camera...

Since the sun was coming and going from behind the clouds as I was taking photos, I thought I would include this photo of how it looks when overcast...

I should mention that this polish was created in collaboration with Llarowe and is part of the piCture pOlish Collaboration Collection. There are lots of other gorgeous collaboration shades out there that I cannot wait to see swatches of...

Also, something new on these bottles are the QR Codes on the side. I do not own a smart phone to test it out, but those of you who do probably already know how it works. Scanning the code will take you directly to the piCture pOlish website or their Network member depending on where the polish as purchased. Pretty neat...

I'd love to know what you think of these!
