Picture Polish Frosting Swatches and Review

Hi guys!

It's the first day of summer!! I was planning to wear something bright today, but seeing that it's so gloomy outside I decided to try the other Picture Polish that has been sitting pretty on my desk, Frosting! Without looking at the polish, when I hear the word 'frosting', I always think of something sparkly. If you have seen the movie How to lose a guy in 10 days, you'd probably know why I think that way ;)

Frosting is a glitter polish with pink milky base, packed with small purple, fuchsia, silver hexes, and silver hearts. At first I thought the base is crelly, but it's more like a sheer creme, although it's not that sheer. I used 2 medium coats for these swatches, and be sure to wait until each coat is really dry before applying the next coat, otherwise it could be a bit draggy and cause bald spots. Drying time is quite fast even with medium coats. It dries gritty, so you might want to use extra layer of top coat for a smooth surface, I used 2 coats of Gelous and 1 coat of Poshe for extra shine. Frosting was created by Picture Polish with collaboration with Cosmetic Cupcake.

While browsing through the photos, I can't help to think how delicious my nails look, lol! Makes me crave for pop tarts. Then I thought how it would look with matte tc, in my head it would make them look more edible. So I slapped on my matte top coat (Butter London Matte Finish), unplugged my camera and took more photos.

One more thing that I like about this polish, no fishing was required to get good glitter coverage, not even for the heart glitters. I just shake the bottle before using, and that's it! I purchased mine from Nail Polish Canada, but you could also get it directly from Picture Polish website here, or Llarowe
