piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2012

I have been so well behaved and have kept this a secret for so long now! Today is piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2012 and I am THRILLED to be participating! I am both so excited and so nervous to be a member of what I would consider a group of superstar bloggers that are swatching the new piCture pOlish shades. Today I have two beautiful polishes to share with you, Attitude and Tease. This is a really picture heavy post because I included some bottle shots and some comparisons between Attitude and Tease.

There are QR labels on each shade that you can scan and it will take you straight to the piCture pOlish on-line store or to the Network member, depending on where your shade was purchased!

First up is Tease! Tease is a new 'Mesh' shade that is Barbie pink with silver glitter. I am not really a pink person, but this polish is just so sparkly and pretty! I really like it! It's like every other polish that has a colored jelly base with glitter in it (China Glaze Dorothy Who?, etc.) - but better.  This is just one coat of Tease on all nails, no top coat because I wanted to see how it would dry. There is a little bit of a texture due to the glitter pieces which I didn't find offensive; one coat of top coat would make this glassy smooth. I thought the formula on this one was great; I paint with fairly thick coats, and I only needed one coat! This polish is not a collaboration shade, so it is available from Picture Polish and all Network members.

Next is Attitude! I had a very hard time narrowing down which photos to include (I took like 100)! Attitude is a new, special shade because it is part of the new 'Collaboration Collection' and was jointly created by Kim from Overall Beauty. I love Kim because she is so sweet whenever I email her and I love shopping at Overall Beauty. I'm really happily surprised that I got this shade to swatch and review :D Attitude is a blurple polish with these really beautiful, irregular holographic flakes in it. This is two coats of Attitude, no top coat to see how it would dry. Attitude is fairly opaque, but has more depth as you add coats. The formula on this one was a little smidgen thick for me; I think I'll add just one drop of thinner for the next time I use it. FYI - because this polish is a Collaboration Collection shade it is only available at Overall Beauty or piCture pOlish on-line.

Read more to see some comparisons!

When I first got Tease I thought "Hmm, I think I have something similar....", so I compared Tease to Zoya Astra, from the Ultra Glitter collection. While they are sort of similar ideas (pink and silvery glitters in a pink colored base), they are very very different upon application.

Zoya has larger glitter particles and the base color is not nearly as opaque as Tease. I will definitely be grabbing more of these Mesh shades in the future because they're opacity is so kick ass! Right now I have my eye on Orbit.

When I first got Attitude I thought it was super unique because of the irregular shapes of the holographic particles, but I wanted to compare it to two of my other scattered holos - A-England Lady of the Lake and Tristam.

The A-Englands are slightly more opaque than the piCture pOlish, but the holo particles are more evenly dispersed - giving them a more suede like finish in shade. The piCture pOlish has a lot more depth and is a cool blurple color; it's also generally darker than the other two polishes. I think if you like scattered holo polishes, you'd need all three ;D

In conclusion, I love piCture pOlish polishes and I am so glad I got to participate in this event! Now, which new shades are your favorite?! Let me know in the comments! I'm really loving Orbit and Kryptonite.
