piCture pOlish blog fest: Cowboy

Goodmorning on this kind of special day!
Two months ago the ladies from Picture Polish sent out an email asking who wanted to enter their Blog Fest. Meaning: lots of blogs posting Picture Polish shades on the same day. The polishes were provided by them for free. Which is extremely kind!! I decided it would be fun to participate. Of course they got lots of emails, but I was lucky to be chosen to represent the Netherlands :-)
The shade I received was Cowboy. It's a very nice taupe creme. Maybe you can even call it almost milk chocolate. Very work appropriate, which is a good thing, because I don't have a lot I can wear to work, haha.

I totally liked the brush and the application. Flawless and smooth. And it was opaque in just one coat. How great is that?! Always a good thing! What usually happens with me and 1 coat cremes, is that it somehow starts to crackle (yes, almost like shatter polish) when I apply topcoat, but no such thing happened. Another plus!!

There was a downside though. The polish chipped within a few hours. That's not something I'm used to. Since I received this polish for free and didn't want to be impolite, but at the same time I really want to be honest to my readers. So I contacted the ladies from Picture Polish and explained them my dilemma. They totally understood that I didn't want to lie and told me to write whatever I want to write about it. And they also explained that Picture Polish is supposed to be a 2 coat system. I was supposed to try that before this Blog Fest, but I just didn't have time. So eventhough it's opaque in just 1 coat, you should just use 2 to avoid chipping.

And if you are wondering if this shade is pretty on other skin tones too, I can tell you it definitely is. I tried it on 2 nails of my daughter, her skin is a few tones darker than mine, and it looked even more beautiful. Since she really hated the color, she wouldn't even let me take a picture of it, hahaha. But I can imagine that. She's a kid, she just wants bright colors.

Enjoy the pics and enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by!

one more thing: if you know any other blogs that participate in this blog fest, please leave me a comment :-)
