Glitter Me This Duo - China Glaze

Today I have a duo from China Glaze that I picked up from Sally's Beauty Supply recently called Glitter Me This. These polishes are from the new Spring 2016 House of Colour collection. My Sally's didn't have the whole collection out, but this was buy the register and I impulsively picked it up! I'll show you both polishes and then at the end I'll let you know what I think.

The first polish in the duo is Let's Chalk About It. Let's Chalk About It is a very, very light pink polish. The only description I found of this one online states that it is a frothy white polish, but I definitely see pink in this one. I did three coats with one coat of top coat. I can still see a few streaks and it is still uneven in a few spots, but it was getting a bit thick so I didn't do any more coats. The top coat did help even it out a bit.

Glitter Me This is the glitter topper in this duo. It is a clear based polish with baby pink, white and gold metallic hexes in various sizes.  I did one coat of this over Let's Chalk About It. It was easy to spread out and I got a good amount of glitter out of the bottle with each dip. I did need to swirl to get some of the largest glitters out, but that's not unusual for a topper like this.

Overall, I like half of this duo. I enjoy Glitter Me This, and I will use it again over a different light pink or another color - it might look good over a black or darker pink, I think.  Let's Chalk About It is definitely one to skip, in my opinion. The formula is not good and the color isn't unique at all.

Let me know in the comments below what you think of this duo, or if you plan on picking up any of the polishes from this collection when it comes out. I'd love to hear!

piCture pOlish Winter and Saphira

Hello again!! I'm happy to be back with a new to me brand to share with you today! I have two polishes from piCture pOlish's newest release - Winter and Saphira.

Winter is best described as "a light charcoal grey scattered holo in a jelly base with tiny silver and gold flakes." This is opaque in two coats. The name Winter suits this polish so well. It reminds me of a snowy grey sky with little sparkly snowflakes throughout it. The formula on both of these polishes is great. They apply smooth and stay put. No pooling or dragging at all. 

Saphira is best described as "a navy/deep blue jelly based nail polish loaded with tiny silver holographic flakes and silver holographic hexagon glitters." This one was also opaque in two coats, which was surprising because it was a bit sheer on the first coat. I love blue polish, so I am a huge fan of this one.  The glitter really stands out in the deep blue base and because it's a jelly base it makes some of the glitters look like they are blue and some still look silver. It's very pretty. 

I'm very impressed with this brand so far. I don't know if I'll be purchasing more right away because they are a little more pricey than what I typically spend on polish, but the formula is great and the colors are beautiful. piCture pOlish is based out of Australia, so I purchased these from, which is a stockist with polish from around the world. I will purchase from there again, the service was excellent and the polishes arrived promptly and packaged very well. 

I'd love to hear what you think of these polishes in the comments below! Which one was your favorite? Also, if you have a favorite piCture pOlish, I'd love to hear about it as well!
