piCture pOlish Collab-Fest 2013 (Paradise)

Hey all you lovely people! If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll probably recognize this polish from piCture pOlish. Paradise is a color I created with piCture pOlish as part of their blogger collaboration. Today I'll be showing you a few more shots of Paradise, in case you missed it the first time around. ^^

If you're curious about my inspiration, the process, and how this beauty applies, check out the following posts below. They pictures there also do the polish a lot more justice, since they were taken in sunlight. As always, this color is so hard to photograph!

But here's a quick break down of Paradise. :)

I'm wearing 3 coats here on my little stubby nails. Unfortunately I had a break in my nails last week, so I'm a little sad I didn't take my pics when my nails were longer. I think for me, each time I wear Paradise I'm a little surprised. My favorite part is seeing it apply on my nails because the shimmer glimmers across my nails and settles around the pink glitters. It can photograph a bit gritty looking, but I promise you it's smooth to the touch. Especially with a nice top coat!

And here's one last artsy photo of Paradise. Not really color accurate - just for fun. :)

You can purchase Paradise or any of the piCture pOlish shades at or from one of their international stockists.  Don't forget to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest piCture pOlish news!

Also, if you own Paradise, please share your pictures with me on Facebook or Twitter! I love seeing all the lovely messages and pictures you send me. :]

Precision Toxic Love Collection Swatches + Review

Hey guys! I recently got to try out this new collection by Precision and can't wait to share my experience with you.  First, a little bit about the brand. Precision is a line of polishes created by Lamoon Beauty. Lamoon means "the moon", representing the shape of our nail beds. I thought that was cute. :)

The collection I am showing you today consists of "six dark, seductive, and deep shades." Each polish is vegan, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and 3-free.

Since this was my first time wearing Precision nail lacquers, I did conduct a wear test with a few of the colors. For the most part, I would say that these wore fairly well.  I had minimum tip wear on day 5 and a small chip on day 7.  This was without base coat and top coat, so I'm sure it would wear much better with them.

Now on to the swatches!
