piCture pOlish new collaboration shades: Hope, Ocean & Shocked

Hi guys! Can you believe it's May 1st?!? I feel like April went pretty slowly for me but the year as a whole is going by way too fast for my liking. Today I have the 3 new blogger collaboration shades that piCture pOlish just recently released. I've been looking forward to these, it's fun to see what other bloggers come up with since they are usually things I feel like I'm also missing in my collection!  Check out the swatches after the jump!

Hope is a dark navy blue with a scattered holographic sparkle and a sprinkle of blue glitter. This shade is a collaboration with a french blog called Vernis en Folie. I'm loving this color, it's like a darker version of Cosmos and the blue glitter adds really nice dimension to the shade! The formula was great, it was a bit sheer on the first coat because of the jelly base but it was completely opaque in 2 coats! All photos below are in natural sunlight, it's much more sparkly in real life!

Ocean is a turquoise/teal blue jelly with a shattered holographic shimmer. This is a collaboration with Kelly's Kolors, to check out the whole color story behind it you can visit Kelly's blog by clicking here. -The formula was good, but this was on the sheer side. I used 3 coats for the photos below and could still see some visible nail line so 4 would probably be best if you have free edge on your nails...if your nails are on the shorter side 3 coats would probably be perfect for you! Just like with Hope this is much more sparkly in real life!All photos below are in the natural sunlight.

Shocked is a hot pink jelly with a scattered holographic shimmer. Shocked is a collaboration shade with Shatter Me Claire, to read Sarah's post about how the color came to be check out her blog here. The formula was good on this, it was also a bit sheer but it built easily and was completely opaque with 3 coats. All of the  photos below are in natural sunlight.

So what do you guys think? I really like all 3 shades though Hope is my favorite of the 3 personally! I love the way that piCture pOlish does these scattered holographic polishes, if you are a fan of their past ones (like Cosmos or Monroe) you will love these!

Hope, Ocean & Shocked are all available now on the piCture pOlish website along with their network members like Llarowe & Harlow & Co. For a full list of network members click here!
