Swatch & Review: Picture Polish Bordeaux & Ornate

Hi guys!

I hope you all still remember me. Yes, I've been MIA for a little while, had personal issues going on and felt like I need to take a break from everything.  But things are better now, and I've been busy taking care of a puppy for the past 2 weeks. Yes! I finally got a puppy! Gosh she is an adorable little monster! Her name is Luna, and she is now 10 weeks old. She's a mix of Shiba Inu and Bichon. My little bundle of joy, and terror (sometimes, lol).

Anyway... Today I have 2 new Picture Polish collaboration shade to share with you guys, Bordeaux and Ornate. As you probably know, Picture Polish is one of my favorite brand. I'm never disappointed by the quality, beautiful shades and awesome formula. 

Bordeaux, is a deep red with scattered holo and flecks. It has great opacity despite of the squishy jelly finish. Dries very shiny and smooth. I used 2 coats on my swatches here, without top coat, just to show you how shiny it is. The first coat on my middle finger is slightly thicker than the rest, just in case you're wondering why it seems darker than the rest.

Ornate, is a purple scattered holo (it leans pink in some light, but mostly looks purple to me), with small gold and pink hex glitter. I love this combination, so gorgeous! It applies very easy. Other than shaking the bottle before use, I didn't try to fish the glitter out or anything. Every dip of a brush has just enough glitter on it. 
Opaque in just 2 coats, which is what I used here. I used one coat of HK Girl top coat. You might need 2 if you want a completely smooth surface. I can feel a very slightly texture after the top coat dries.

For once I didn't use artificial lighting for my swatches! All pics were taken using natural indoor lighting. I kinda like it, but can't really rely on the sun now that fall is here. I'm just enjoying whatever sunny days we have left.
