Twinsie Tuesday-Summer to Fall Transitional Polish

Hi chickadees, welcome to Tuesday.  I hope you all are doing well.  Yesterday was good.  I thought it would be more relaxing but in the end we decided to massively clean our house before our friends came over but it looks good so I can't complain.  Our friends and their cute little baby came over for dinner and we ended up watching Parks and Rec on Netflix so it was nice to just take it easy and hang out.  It also turns out our cats are terrified of babies.  One wouldn't come out of our bedroom, one freaked out when she cried and then really needed to be pet by us, and then the third cat actually sniffed her, was okay, and then when she cried, hid under a desk.  Definitely not the reactions I was expecting.  

Today's prompt was one I really enjoyed.  I really love this idea of transitional polishes and for some reason, this seasonal transition seems like a bigger one than normal.  I personally have moved away from all the brights but I'm not quite ready to rock deep vampy shades either since it has still been in the upper 80's and 90's here.  It's hotter now than it's been all Summer.  Today I have a polish I wore for three days last week and still didn't want to take off!

Yep, it's not an OPI!  Picture Polish is a brand that I have always admired from afar but the price tag always scares me away.  I actually bought this polish from a blogger in Australia for an amazing deal and that's how it ended up with me.  Initially I thought this polish would be your average bright pink but I was wrong.  While it is a fairly bright pink cream, I definitely pick up on berry tones in this polish, at least that's how it wore on me.  I think that mix of bright plus the berry make it a great transitional color.

The formula was great on the polish.  I haven't tried many Picture Polishes, but the ones I have tried I noticed a slightly thicker than average formula.  However, that thicker formula helps to make the polish really opaque in application.  I used two coats but I bet if I was careful I could have used one thick coat.  All swatches are with topcoat.

Overall I'm in love with this color and I can't wait to wear it again.  I'm all about a good transitional color right now and I can't wait to see what my fellow Twinsies pick!
