picture polish free (special edition)

today i am showing you a special edition picture polish, free, that is so far my favourite polish of 2017.

if you live in australia, you get this polish for free (hence the name) with your purchase. luckily, us non-australians can still buy it regularly. and this polish is truly divine! it has a duochrome effect, shifting from teal to blue, with awesome holo shimmer. 

the formula is awesome, it simply flows. i couldn't stop looking at my nails, so i am posting a bit more photos than usual, because it is truly a chameleon. i took pictures under direct sunlight, slight overcast and in shade, and it is stunning in every condition,

nopi shoot for the maroon (2012)

i am showing one of my favourites today, shoot for the maroon from nopi's 2012 collection.

when you have a lot of polishes, it happens that you kind of neglect some of them, but then you rediscover them and fall in love. i wore shoot for the maroon so many times this winter and i'm still not bored of it.

and how could i be, just look at this perfection! such a rich burgundy/purple shade with perfectly matched golden shimmer. it's a dream. it looks stunning both in shade and in the sun.

formula is also nice, it applies smoothly and nicely. such a gem of a polish.

zoya blaze (ornate)

ornate was such an awesome zoya collection, with some iconic shades (aurora, storm and logan are on my list), and blaze is one of those gems.

the first thing that comes to mind to me when i wear blaze is "delicious". it looks like some kid of berry marmelade and i always crave red fruit when i have it on my nails.

zoya poetically described it as "cool-toned medium mulberry red with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter". these holo particles are not as dense as in some other polishes from this collecton, and they give out pinkish and purplish glitz. 

coverage and formula are great, and it's an awesome polish overall.

ysl fur green (scandal)

i am finally showing one more recent ysl polish, fur green from this autumn's scandal collection. the other polish from this collection is vintage plum.

fur green is a truly gorgeous shade of green. one of these forest, muted green shades. although it's moodiness really is perfect for autumn, i can see myself wearing all the time because it works perfectly well with my wardrobe.

formula of these creme is amazing, as usual, and matched with (for me) perfect ysl brush, there is nothing to complain about.

chanel blue rebel (les jeans)

it's been ages since i swatched two out of three chanel polishes from ancient but awesome les jeans collection back in 2011, and it's time i showed blue rebel as well. other two polishes were equally awesome coco blue and blue boy.

this collection was supposed to be jeans inspired, and this polish emulates your basic dark, slightly washed out pair beautifully. it is the darkest blue out of the trio, but still too light to be called navy. more like a deep denim shade. it is awesome, well pigmented and with good formula.

i am sure that by now there are plenty of dupes out there, but i am simply happy i have this one.
