Friends, it’s that time of year when you are most likely shopping for holiday gifts, planning family get-togethers, or simply (and so lucky if this is you!!) waiting for a few days off to relax by the fire with a good book or some good knitting/crafting and a drink!

To help you end this year on a high note, we are hosting a number of giveaways over on our Instagram page! We started with an amazing giveaway last week with one of our favourite moisturizers ever, IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream… and are continuing today with an amazing giveaway for all of our maker friends with one of the coolest Canadian yarn brands, Sugarbush Yarns!!

Head on over to The Obsessed’s Instagram page, drop down the menu under “following” then “notifications” and toggle both to on!

 

Hope to see you on Instagram, and GOOD LUCK to all who are entering!

It’s piCture pOlish Thursday again, almost time for the weekend, and time for a party-ready glitter bomb: Blogger, the newest addition to the piCture pOlish lineup! I also have anothger review of Revolution, the new base coat made specifically for glitter polishes!

Blogger is described as “a colourful sparkly ode to you all! ‘indie-esque’ glitter creation!  Blogger is jam packed with multi-coloured glitters and has a very thick consistency.  Full coverage with one to two coats with no base colour.” And jam-packed with glitter it is. Blogger is a bottle full of various colours of glitter, and I literally placed an order the moment it launched! (Along with Hope, see it here.)

I decided to layer Blogger over a base coat of Revolution (get it, Blogger Revolution?), a base coat made specifically for glitters (My Hope post has the details around Revolution’s application.) After 2 coats of Revolution, I applied 2 coats of OPI… Eurso Euro, a gorgeous bright, deep indigo creme, followed by a gradient of Blogger. The result, in my opinion, was amazing:

Eurso Euro was a gorgeous contrast and played nicely off the bright glitters in Blogger!

Here are a couple of sun pictures:

Blogger was quite thick due to its glitter content. It has a clear base, and is probably thick enough to provide full coverage in just two coats. I wiped the brush in order to get the gradient effect you see above.

As for removal, I found Revolution to make removal a touch easier, but I still had to do some good scrubbing to get the thickest part of glitter off. I also think I rushed Revolution’s initial 2-coat application, and that led to it removing easier on some nails than others. Another thing to note is that Revolution balls or pills when removing polish, so I went over the nail one last time just to wipe those little pieces off. I’ll definitely use Revolution again when wearing Blogger – I think it will need all the help it can get for removal! 😉

Once again the amazing girls at piCture pOlish have recognized their fans and their bloggers, creating this ode to indie-like glitter polish for us to adore.

Get your very own bottle of Blogger and Revolution by visiting piCture pOlish on-line and or any piCture pOlish Network member, including Harlow & Co, Llarowe and Nail Polish Canada. They had both sold out last week, but more is on the way!
