piCture pOlish FOCUS by Pointless Cafe


UPDATE: piCture pOlish FOCUS has joined the
piCture pOlish collection full time!


Remember I told you I had something extra special coming up to show you later this month? Well, IT'S HERE!!!!!! Not only am I excited to introduce to you piCture pOlish FOCUS by Pointless Cafe, if you hang around to the end of the post I have a GIVEAWAY, too, thanks to the lovely Kim at Overall Beauty!







Back at the end of July I was thrilled to be one of the many bloggers worldwide to participate in piCture pOlish's Blogfest 2012. Little did I know then that it would lead to a polish with MY name on it! Turns out that piCture pOlish poured over those blog posts and chose a few bloggers worldwide to create and name their own shade and I was one of the lucky few!

This polish was initially named Perspective but it was too long for the bottle so I changed it to Focus. The color inspiration photos I sent them were of wild wine cups growing in my back yard. I told them I wanted this color - between a violet and a red-violet on the color wheel - in a crelly formula with micro-flakes and maybe some blue shimmer.




piCture pOlish Focus - Color Inspiration




And Focus was born! It's not the exact color I was thinking, but it's gorgeous nonetheless! It's actually a great red-violet positively LOADED with micro-flakes! It's not a jelly but it is a crelly and was opaque on short nails in two coats and on my longer nails I needed the third coat. The depth of color built up great and I was really happy with the formula! One coat of Poshe top coat for the photos.

This shade is a LIMITED EDITION, however, if we all love it, the girls at piCture pOlish may keep it in their line-up so please show it some love!
