piCture pOlish has a new collection releasing on April 9th, 2012 and gave me the opportunity to swatch and review the collection! The Opulence Collection consists of 3 gorgeous nail polishes that look stunningly beautiful in the bottle. I saw a couple pictures online and thought they looked amazing, but my jaw DROPPED when I was opening the package! The 3 colors are Monroe, Peacock and Mask-a-rade.
Ready for some swatches? I hope so!
First up is a classic HOLLYWOOD icon – Monroe! Monroe is a blood red jelly polish with holographic shimmer in it. The shimmer is really fine and I am so glad they did it that way. Monroe’s linear holographic shimmer is incredibly subtle and absolutely gorgeous. This was definitely the smoothest of the 3 polishes to apply (mainly because the other 2 have glitter in them) . I used 3 coats for this picture, I could have stopped at 2, but I got the true blood red effect with 3 coats. (Click on the photo to really see the shimmer!)
Next, do you wanna see my Peacock? Peacock was probably my least favorite of the 3 polishes. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t a bad polish, I just liked the other 2 a little better ;) Peacock is a mixture of emerald glitter with blue particle that flashes purple and white in a purple jelly base that dries matte. I used a purple cream polish as a base color for this polish. It was a little on the thick side, but wasn’t horrendous to apply, the glitter wasn’t super chunky either, so once dry it didn’t feel like it would snag on everything. I used a glossy top coat over Peacock to really make it shine!
Now, look beyond the sparkle! Mask-a-rade! This was a gorgeous explosion of multicolor/multi chromatic particles in a clear base. The sparkle is amazing but even better is when the color shifts in the glitter! Ahhh! I LOVE this! I used Mask-a-rade over a black cream polish to really make it stand out! Straight on I see purple, blue and green particles, but as I look from an angle I see copper, red and orange particles. Application was smooth with Mask-a-rade, the particles are small and feels fairly smooth on the nail. With a top coat it complete smoothed out.
This is my first experience with piCture pOlish and I love trying out new brands to add to my ever growing collection, and I plan on adding more than just these 3 beauties!
