piCture pOlish Cosmos - the most beautiful polish I've ever seen

Hi guys!

Today I want to show you my favorite blue polish! There are many blue polishes that are close to my heart, but once I got Cosmos in the mail and tried it on for the first time, it was true love. <3

After looking at swatches of this polish for a long time, I finally caved. I had to have it. The medium/dark blue color, the flecks of holo throughout. And somehow, it was even better in person. It exceeded any expectations I had - it's simply gorgeous. 

Click on the link below for a more detailed review and pictures!


Let me just tell you now - I don't think there's any way to capture the true beauty of Cosmos in photos. It's just such a multi-dimensional and intriguing polish, you need to see it in person to fully appreciate it. But I'll try my best to describe it here and I think my pictures actually came out pretty well, considering how hard the total depth of the polish was to capture.

Now that's out of the way, on to the polish, Cosmos was created by the incredibly talented Camille at Pshiiit as a collaboration with piCture pOlish. It's a very saturated and very deep medium/dark blue. The blue base is a jelly, so the amazing scattered holo glitter is squished between the layers of the polish, making it appear to have incredible depth. The holographic particles are all different irregular shapes - it's really really amazing. Agh. I honestly can't even begin to tell you how much I love this polish... haha :p

The formula is equally as amazing. It went on so smoothly and evenly, it just glided across the nail. Since it's a jelly, it was ever so slightly sheer at the first coat, but the second coat did the trick. Even though Cosmos was completely opaque in two coats, I added a third to try to pack my nails full of even more holo, but it really wasn't necessary, and two was totally enough. 

Alright... enough rambling. I present you the stunning Cosmos. Three coats, one coat of top coat (even though it was pretty damn shiny on its own). All photos in the sun unless otherwise noted.

I really love Cosmos so much. I'm already getting sad for the day when my bottle runs out. Maybe I need a backup? Haha.

Anyways, what do you guys think? Has anyone else tried this polish? If so, what are your favorites?

I have a nail art post planned for tomorrow using Cosmos as a base, so be sure to check back!

Thanks for stopping by! And have a great day =)
