piCture pOlish Atomic - by Samarium's Swatches!!!

Hey guys!! Today is one of the most exciting days for me!
I finally get to tell you a secret that has been super hard to keep to myself!!
Do you remember my piCture pOlish Blogfest post from July?
Well because of that I was chosen (with many others) to help make a nail polish with piCture pOlish!
I got to work with the wonderful ladies from piCture pOlish to help create a Limited Edition collaboration shade with them!

Unfortunately I missed the package today so I didn't take my swatches with bottle pictures.
I do have a bottle atm but it isn't labelled but I did use it for some pretty macros later in this post!
I love my collaboration polish so much! It is very difficult to photograph though!

First lets talk inspiration. Of course my first thought was the element Samarium!
Which my blog is named after. Samarium is a silvery white metal, named from the mineral samarskite.
Samarium oxidizes in the air, forming a grayish-yellow powder. Which is the reasoning for the gold shimmer sparkle in it! It is more visible when layering. But enough chit chat!

I wish I could even begin to describe this polish. I will c&p the Picture Polish description when it is posted.
But trust me that this polish is beautiful and very intricate, I hope dearly that some fellow amazing bloggers will get their hands on it and help show it off!
I used three thin coats for opacity. Two coats is great coverage but there was a tiny but of VNL.
I love that this polish is versatile, not only does it build up beautifully- it can also be layered!
Granted it;s a little thick for layering so be sure to apply a nice even coat when doing so!

  3. Oh my god that is incredible! Creating a nail polish in collaboratiom with a brand is my golden dream :D The polish is gorgeous, i especially like it layered over darker colors because you get to see more glass flecks (and i'm addicted to them!). It's so beautiful i'm sure it'll make it to the regular line. Congratulations!!
