Picture Polish Lagoon

Glitzy turquoise sea in the sun!  it says on the bottle............ and this reminds me of one of those perfect summer days on a beach on Mull or Harris when the sea really is this colour. Yes, the sea really is this colour sometimes in some places in the north west of Scotland :D

Lagoon is one the recent blogger collaboration colours from Picture Polish; this one is by Sam at Fashion Polish. I've been reading Sam's blog for a long time, long before I even started thinking about blogging myself, and I've always liked her style, so I 'm not surprised I love the polish she designed. It's a bright teal jelly full of holo microglitter and a few twinkles of aqua glitter too. Here is Sam's own post and pictures of Lagoon.

Application was very easy, the polish just flows on in spite of it being full of glitter. I used three thin coats for this mani. I was expecting it to need a lot of topcoat, and I had my bottle of Gelous at the ready, but to be honest I could have got away without topcoat altogether. I used a coat of Seche Vite to dry it quickly without smudging, but skipped the Gelous.

The colour reminds me of one of my favourite gemstones, Amazonite!

And here are a few macros to show the fabulous depth and detail of the finish in Lagoon!

And finally, just for a bit of fun, I added a white stamped design over Lagoon. This is from the Cheeky Wild At Heart 'jumbo' plate - my nails must be growing pretty fast because the jumbo plate is now only just big enough. Looks like I'll be back to double stamping, stamping into gradients or, most likely, not stamping at all soon!

I purchased my Picture Polish Lagoon from Sally Magpies in the UK; PIcture polish have a worldwide distributor network including Llarowe, who ships internationally. Llarowe's $ prices when converted to £ are less than Sally's, but when you factor in the shipping they both work out about the same. Both these ladies give brilliant service and I wouldn't hesitate to order from either - I normally buy from whoever has the product in stock.
