Hello lovelies & happy Thursday!
Today, I’ve got a very exciting Swatch to share with you. I know, Thursday is an unusual day for a Swatch Post from me, but to be completely honest—lockdown #3 has me feeling seriously unmotivated & defeated. But I really, really wanted to share this beauty, so let’s break with tradition!
So today’s nail polish beauty I’m sharing is Beyond The Nail Paparazzi Flash from the May 2021 Polish Pickup drop.
2 coats, no top coat
Paparazzi Flash is described as “a blue based microglitter bomb in a clear base with flashes of holographic multicoloured microglitter” which fits it pretty well. The glitter is definitely dense, which creates that great flash of different colours. I applied two coats of polish, but I definitely think I could have benefitted with three thin ones — out on the go, especially in the sunshine, it wasn’t as noticeable, but in my swatch photos you can definitely see a bit of my natural nail peaking through. Next time I wear it, I think I might sponge the polish on instead of strokes to really get the glitter dense. I think it would look amazing.
You can really see how dense the different glitters colours are in this bottle shot. There are so many different glitters–it’s a gorgeous combination. & obviously, you cannot go wrong with holo. That’s pretty much just my life motto at this point–just add holo. It makes everything better. I’m also really curious to see this shade in a glitter gradient & used as a topper over another shade. I think both will look amazing!
As I mentioned, this shade is an exclusive release as part of the May 2021 PPU drop, so it is officially available tomorrow (May 7th) until May 10th via the Polish Pickup website for $11.50. So if you need to grab yourself a bottle, definitely pop over to PPU tomorrow, & add one to your cart.
