piCture pOlish Dorothy, Orbit, and Tease
Other than seven new Collaboration Shades, piCture pOlish has also just launched four new shades for their regular collection. One of them, Warning, is not ready to be shipped yet, so I don’t have a swatch for you yet.
The other three shades are all under their “Mesh Shades” category. If you follow piCture pOlish on Facebook, you may have seen these three shades before as they had a naming competition for them. The chosen names are Dorothy, Orbit, and Tease.
All three shades have the same type of formula and similar ingredients. They come with a smooth and pigmented base, and are packed with glitter in silver and a second colour.
Let’s start with Dorothy. This has a red base with a tinge of pink. It is full of small bright red and silver glitter.
The polish is so pigmented, it was almost a one-coater. Two give a more even, opaque finish. It also dried shiny and I didn’t use a top coat for the photos. Welcome to the land of Oz!
Those of you who love Judy Garland as Dorothy like I do would no doubt know that this shade was thus named for her ruby slippers. Interestingly, in L. Frank Baum’s original stories of Oz, the witch’s slippers were silver. I seem to recall reading that MGM wanted a brighter and more distinctive colour as the movie was to be in technicolor, and thus, the legendary and iconic ruby slippers were born!
Anyway, more photos of piCture pOlish Dorothy!
The second of the new Mesh shades is Orbit. This has a midnight blue/indigo base with small bright blue and silver glitter.
Application was a breeze and I used two coats, with no top coat.
The name of this polish has to do with the galaxy effect the silver creates amid the dark blue. It’s like a really starry night!
The third Mesh shade is Tease. This is a bright pink, almost fuchsia shade. I said almost fuchsia as it doesn’t have as much purple as I would associate with fuchsia. In any case, this is also a really pretty shade!
piCture pOlish Tease has a bright pink base with small bright pink and silver glitter. Same ease with application, as with Dorothy and Orbit. Again, two coats, with no top coat.
