Picture Polish - Borealis

Last month Picture Polish released Aurora, which is a mix of multichrome pigment and multichrome glitter in one polish.  Tonight I have swatches of Aurora's sister polish, Borealis.  

Borealis is also a mix of multichrome pigment and multichrome glitter, this time in the same colour range as Ozotic multichrome 504 and Picture Polish Altered State (and the number of other brand multichromes made from the blue to red Chromaflair pigment) it also has the same glitter that is in Ozotic Elytra 526.  The colour shift goes from bright blue, to purple, to pink, to red and finally a bronzey yellow.

Application is nice and smooth, but it's worth noting, that just like Aurora, this polish is designed to be layered over a dark base.  I can be built to opacity at about 3-4 coats and the finish is more pastel looking.  Here I have layered 2 thin coats over black and topped it with Seche Vite.  The colour shift is really strong and the mix of glitter and shimmer really makes the polish shine.

The restock for the Limited Edition collection of Aurora, Altered State, Gravity, Illusionist and Solar Flare + launch of Borealis, Lizzie, Darcy and Bridgett is on this coming Monday 31st March at 9:00am, Brisbane Australia time, direct from Picture Polish (have you seen their new website yet?) International ladies should check their Network stockist for specific times!


  1. Since I've only been into polish for a year or so now, as far as discovering all this indie/boutique/international stuff, I don't have a lot of Ozotics. So I'm excited to have this option. Pretty pics!!! :)

  2. I love all the different elements in this polish! So gorgeous.

  4. You mean 529 glitter correct? 526 is a black polish.
