Picture Polish - Escapades // My Collaboration Shade

Hi everyone! Today I have the most incredible news for you! The day is finally here where I can proudly introduce to you the Picture Polish x Nail Escapades collaboration shade Escapades! :) AHHHHHH I KNOW RIGHT?!! I’m dancing I’m jumping I’m singing I’m HAPPYYY! My goodness, I still can't believe it myself; I never ever would've guessed that one day I'd get this amazing chance!

The collaboration project started back in late December 2013, and since then I've kept it a secret from everyone! It's been so hard but totally worth it :) After many days of spontaneous dance routines and singing of happiness, I started taking everything in. I began to wonder what a Picture Polish x Nail Escapades nail polish would actually look like. Many emails have been sent back and forth about colors, bases, finishes etc. but in the end it just all came together. I'm so happy and so proud to present the result from many months of secrecy and hidden excitement! With the skills and talent of Jules and Megs and a tiny dash of my ideas, Escapades is here! :)



When I review and swatch any nail polish on the blog, I always have a paragraph starting with the name of the polish set in bold followed by a technical description. Now comes the part when I'm about to do that with my own collaboration shade, and I just can't believe it!!! :)

Escapades is a dark teal green jelly scatter-holo. It's a different kind of teal - a dark kind that I haven't seen before in nail polish form. It leans very close to a blackened emerald green, but the base contains enough blue pigment that it remains a dark teal green color. The formula is excellent; it's really creamy and it glides on with ease! Apply 2 coats for a super opaque finish - or try 1 very generous coat to see the beautiful base color shine a bit more through :) The drying time is exceptionally fast, it dries completely smooth on the nail with a super glossy finish. Perfection :)






I'm so happy; I love how Escapades turned out! My favorite colors are blue and green, so teal is just the perfect fit! :) I chose a very dark base color with contrasting bright sparkles, and the inspiration comes from my personal journey through the last couple of years. I've had a rather rough, dark time - life gives you ups and downs and there were just more downs than ups. My family has been my rock, and they know that :) But through my nail escapades I feel like I've grown so much as a person; I'm glad that I found this thing that I really love to do and feel so passionate about :) That's why I named it Escapades! :)







Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Jules and Megs. I can't say enough how thankful and absolutely grateful I am. You giving me this opportunity has meant so much to me, and it's something I'll enjoy to the fullest and forever look back on with happiness :)

Escapades is available from today December 1st at www.picturepolish.com.au - they ship worldwide! :) You can also check out the Stockists page for additional online resellers of Picture Polish nail polishes, or the Bricks & Mortar page for physical shops near you! :)
