Hi guys! Today I have the last polish from Paint Shop Polish to show you. The sun finally came out and I was able to grab some good shots. This is Winter Wishes, a dark sorta silvery blue with a slight purple-ness to it, I'd accurately describe it as a dark periwinkle with scattered holographic shimmer. I've got more swatches and some winter stamping I did with Winter Wishes as my base after the break!
The formula in this one is excellent, it starts sheer but it builds up to opacity nicely in 3 coats. The application is smooth and easy, I barely had to do any clean-up, it was so easy to control, just wonderful. The scattered holographic shimmer looks sliver indoors so I took all of my pictures outside in the sun or shade to really show it off. Some of the sunlight shots are a little bit blurry, because those where the ones that showed off the sparkle the best.
I knew this color would be perfect for some winter themed nail art so the next day I stamped on top with MoYou London Festive 01 and Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl.
This is how it looks in the shade, the holo shimmer looks silver but it shows off the stamping better.
I love the sparkle! On a funny note, I've never seen snow in real life, just pictures and tv. ( I don't think that slush on the side of the road that time I went to visit my then boyfriend/now husband at UConn in April counts). I live in the tropics and as you can tell, my grass in the background is a super bright green from all of last week's rain but having such a pretty sparkly winter color really puts me in a holiday mood.
Winter Wishes is part of Paint Shop Polish Winter 2014 collection and is available now for purchase. Candi sent me a sample mini bottle to review but you can get one for yourself for just $4.50 or the full size 15ml for $10.00 at her Etsy shop here.
