... piCture pOlish - Monroe ...

... piCture pOlish - Monroe ...
Purchased from piCture pOlish - $11.50 AUD
[This polish is seriously limited! Get your hands on it fast!]
I can't believe it took me so long to swatch this beauty. I've been in a funk lately due to the weather. I have been finding it hard to get motivated to do nails while the weather has been so cold and miserable and some beautiful suggested to do some stamping.

Monroe is a wonderfully sexy red jelly with a hidden holo surprise in the right light. It's such a beautiful deep colour ...
I've used 3 thin coats for this swatch and I'd definitely recommend going thin and slow. It needs to dry between coats or you just end up with a jelly mess. Also try and stay off the cuticles as it's a pain to remove!
The holo showing up under artificial light ... no sunshine here *sad* Still looks pretty though!!

I knew straight away what to stamp over this although I had major issues in deciding what colour. I originally was wanting a bright yellow or gold for Hollywood but it didn't look outstanding. In the end I went with Ulta3 in Lily White.

The Marilyn stamp came from the Fun 1 plate and the Movie Reels are from the Fun 2 plate - both from Fab Ur Nails. So many great images on these plates - I'd highly recommend them!!
** Final Verdict **
A beautiful polish named after a beautiful lady. Although unless you want it end up with it's life tragically cut short you need to take care and have a lot of patience too apply. Well worth it if you put in the effort!!  Also I found I had great wear from this shade - fantastic!!
