Introducing piCture pOlish Tail Feather by Kayla Shevonne!

Oh em gee, this moment has been a LONG time in the making, but I can finally introduce to you my very own collaboration shade with piCture pOlish!


As you all must know by now, piCture pOlish has been working with bloggers to create collaboration shades for well over a year now. After the 2012 Blog Fest, piCture pOlish chose a number of bloggers to create their own unique collaboration shade and I was lucky enough to have been chosen. And ever since, I've had to keep this collaboration a secret, which let me tell you was no easy feat! So I've been keeping this secret since September of 2012! 2012!! But I can say without a doubt that it was definitely worth it.

Honestly it's so surreal to see my name on a bottle of internationally sold nail polish. And it's not just something with my name slapped on it, this is something that I designed, from the name, the tagline, right down to the very last shimmer particle! What an amazing feeling!

Swatches...!



If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I have a love for all things peacock. I even had a peacock themed wedding! So when asked to describe my perfect nail polish, I knew right where to start.


Tail Feather is a bright, borderline neon shade of green that's packed with lots of blue, purple, pink, green and gold shimmer. The shimmer isn't your typical shimmer, instead each particle is like a tiny micro-flake. The piCture pOlish gals called them "sparks" and I think that's the perfect description!



The shimmer particles I chose to use lend to a thicker polish formula, and I'll admittedly advice patience during application, but the colour is so worth it in my opinion. I've used three coats in my swatches here.

I should also mentioned that piCture pOlish has moved from a 3 free formula to a new 5 free formula and Tail Feather is among the first of the shades with the new formulation!


Here's my official inspiration story that I gave to piCture pOlish:

I was inspired by the exquisite radiance of a peacock's display. Furthermore, I've always been personally drawn towards bright and fun tropical colors. I combined both of these ideas, along with some brilliant eye-catching shimmer, to get my shade, Tail Feather!


The tagline was something I struggled with. I couldn't get that Nelly, P.Diddy and Murphy Brown song "Shake Ya Tailfeather" out of my head, so my mind kept going to the lyric "pop something, move something, shake ya tail feather". But I knew I didn't want that (plus, copyright infringement, anyone?), so I had to force myself to not think of that song, which was a lot harder than it sounds!

Luckily, my amazingly clever and always witty husband (don't tell him I said that, it'll surely over-inflate his ego) swooped in to save the day with what turned out to be the perfect tagline - "flaunt it… all eyes on you!". If you think about it, it's actually a double entendre! All eyes are on you because the polish is so gorgeous, but also, all "eyes" are on you, you know, the eye of the peacock feather! Genius.


I of course must thank the amazing women over at piCture pOlish. It's been such a pleasure to work with them so closely over this last year and a half. Thank you girls for making a dream come true!

Tail Feather is available now from the piCture pOlish website as well as from Nail Polish Canada. It will also be available soon from other international retailers such as Overall Beauty, Harlow & Co. and llarowe, to name a few. Be sure to check out their list of network members to find an etailer nearest you.

I hope you all love Tail Feather as much as I do! If you get yourself a bottle, be sure to share your photos with me! All of my social media info is available on the menu bar at the top of the page, so share, share, share!
