I have something rather lovely for you today. This is my first Picture Polish. They come all the way from Australia although I ordered mine from Sally Magpies, when she had a sale recently. Picture Polish released a set of Limited Edition polishes, all special effects top coats, and there was a lot of excitement about them. I wasn't too sure although I'd seen some great pictures but when Sally was selling everything at half price I just couldn't resist, and I am so glad I was in the right place at the right time as I expect these sold out very quickly!
This is a multi-chrome, with tiny silvery holographic glitter and it is truly beautiful. They are designed as layering polishes and most effective over black, although I have seen some lovely shots of them over paler shades. Illusionist shifts from a teal green through purple to deep pink and onto a gingery bronze at very extreme angles, so obviously I have taken lots of pics to try and capture some of those shifts. I used 1 coat over 2 coats of Nails Inc Black Taxi. It was very easy to apply, no streaking or patchiness and dried well.
The bottle says, just above the main name, "now you see me, now you don't" and that is quite true. In some lights the colour shift almost disappears and you just see the glitter, so over the black base it looks like a starry night. In fact at almost all angles the nails look like a night sky, with twinkling stars, with varying dark sky colours - absolutely mesmerisng. I could spend hours moving my hands around and watching the colours change!
