In today's post I'm showing you a truly awesome polish.
piCture pOlish Mallard is one of the collaboration shades and it's created by the lovely Jen of The PolishAholic. First of all, I should say how much I love the idea behind all of the collaboration polishes. I just think it's awesome that piCture pOlish is so connected with the nail polish community! Anyways, back to the beauty that is Mallard.
Mallard is a deep teal based green with a strong golden/green shimmer and a sprinkle of flakies that flash green and orange. I got that description straight from Jen's post about her polish. I figured that since she created it, she'd have the best description! If you're interested in learning about Jen's inspiration for the polish, check out that same post.
I think this polish is just stunning. I mean, I think it would have been stunning with just the shimmer, but the addition of the flakies make it something extra special. And it would have been easy to go overboard with the flakies, but it's the absolute perfect amount.
In regards to formula, Mallard is a big winner there as well. I've basically come to expect that from piCture pOlish anyways. My photos show two easy coats of Mallard.
I think this is one of the absolute must-have collaboration shades. It's gorgeous, unique, and it's always a pleasure to support a fellow blogger.
Mallard retails for $14.50 and can be purchased through the piCture pOlish store. They do ship internationally, but there's also many network members all over the world whom you can purchase from. Refer to the Network Members List for a complete list of where you can find piCture pOlish.
Personally, I bought this one from llarowe, but I've also purchased piCture pOlish from Harlow & Co. as well.
Have you picked this one up yet? You're truly missing out if you haven't!
