Picture Polish - Starry Night - New Collaboration Shade

There are two words that get me pretty excited lately "Collaboration Shade".  Yeah baby, when you see those words you know that Picture Polish has been secretly hard at work with someone around to world to create something special.  Today's post is no exception.

Today I present Starry Night - by Llarowe - big & bright heart of Texas.

First up, I have to give props to Picture Polish for their marketing genius relating to these collaboration shades.  What better way is there for nail bloggers and their readers to get a real connection with a brand? This is also the same brand that brings you the annual Blogfest of their shades.  Certainly someone at Picture Polish has their innovation hat on and has really thought about creating a relationship with their customers.  Colour me impressed!

Not only have Picture Polish collaborated to create another polish, they have also carefully coordinated with a handful of bloggers to simultaneous launch Starry Night at the exact same moment around the world.  I don't know who the other bloggers are - but I will certainly blog jumping to find out (just as soon as I get out of work meetings today at lunch time).  I am honored and excited to have been selected to share this polish with you, I just hope I can do it justice.

Starry Night by Llarowe is a charcoal black scattered holo jelly with multi-coloured sparks.  The polish is quite sheer because of it's jelly finish and takes 2-3 coats for opacity.  If you are familiar with Picture Polish Opal, then this is the same colour but with the addition of scattered holo bits and more jelly like finish.

These photos are three coats plus Seche Vite top coat, taken in full sun.

In this macro shot you can see the various irregular shaped holo pieces, but you can also see the very fine multi-coloured sparks, which are multiple colours, not holo.

This photo is taken outdoors under a shaded area.  You can see the sparks are still obvious in lower lighting.

Here is a quick comparison with Ozotic 623.  Starry Night is much more jelly like and the holo particles are bright and easy to see.  It is shown here at three coats.  Ozotic 623 is very opaque (one coat shown here) and the holo particles do no shine through as easily.  Starry Night also has additional fine multi-coloured sparks.

At this stage, Starry Night will only be available for purchase directly from Picture Polish for $12AUD or via Llarowe for $14.50 USD
