I was meant to post this last night, but somehow, some stuff happened and now it’s Tuesday. I have all my posts for the week planned so I’ll have to pull a double on one of the days where I’m not so flat out! (FYI, that is NOT today).
So as many of you might be as well, I’m signed up to recieve Picture Polish’s newsletter. So when I got word that Ozotic 507, 509 and 517 were coming back into stock I squealed like a little girl and began stalking their store. Apparently all that stalking paid off.
Yep. That was me. I just happened to check the store at the right time okay? No need for the restraining order. We’re cool, right Picture Polish? RIGHT?!?
Psychotic polish tendencies aside, let’s focus on my wonderful order. From L to R Ozotic 507, 509 & 517 and Picture Polish Jealousy. See? I told you the stalkering was worth it.
Here’s a couple of bottle shots of 517, which is a pale green holo and 509 which is straight up silver. Aren’t these lovely? I was going to swatch them, but I really want full sun to get the best out of these bad boys. The weather has no idea what it wan’t to do these days so I figured I’d wait a little longer and swatch them with the rest of the Ozotic holos that are still sitting on my desk. But even under faux daylight, these are just amazing.
But on to the star of the show – Ozotic 507. That thunk you just heard was the re-enactment of my jaw hitting the floor from when I swatched this last night. Or it was your jaw hitting the floor. Or a combination of both. I am 99.9% sure that this is the source of my mysterious unlabelled Morpheus polish that I posted forever ago. I layered this over one coat of Chi Chi Mortisha and it seriously pained me to remove the swatch. That’s how beautiful it is. I cried, people. I CRIED. (Not really, but that was so dramatic, huh?)
Here’s a couple of alternate angles. I really don’t have the words, and for me that’s rare. As you all know.
Along with my pretty discontinued Ozotics, I could hardly resist the new and wonderful Picture Polish Jealousy. HOMG. It’s super dense green glitter suspended in a green jelly base. It’s a green version of Bloom Zooey. My pictures make it look paler than it actually is – it’s actually quite bright. Not emerald green, but a lovely grassy green. I am definitely a fan.
So here comes the cool part. Since I took part in Picture Polish’s Blogfest and did really crappy but generally well recieved watermelon nail art, Picture Polish are rewarding my bravery for sharing something so shit by giving me the chance to give away three of their amazing Picture Polish shades to Pretty Random readers. I’ve never done a giveaway before. How rad is this?
Much like myself, this giveaway is going to be less than conventional. I’m not concerned about followers or retweets or advertising or whatever. If you want to do those things, awesome – I appreciate it. BUT it will not get you any more entries. My rules are simple – you can enter as many times as you like, but there is one condition. You have to write me a bitchin’ haiku about your favourite Picture Polish shade.
Picture Polish colours all have great names. From Vampire, to Heavy Metal to Jade & Goldfinger… Just pick one and write me a haiku featuring that name as one of the words. Five syllables, seven syllables, then five syllables again. Simple! To start us off, my boyfriend wrote one for popsicle.
Embraced by your lucious lips
My sweet popsicle
Hey, I never said it had to be appropriate. He’s a published author. He knows what he’s doing.
So if you’d like three free Picture Polishes of your very own, write me a haiku. Heck, you can write as many as you like. Post them in the comments below. I’ll pick my favourite and then Picture Polish will send you three shades of your choosing. Ozotic colours are not included though, so if you win – just remember they HAVE to be Picture Polish. Check out their website and pick your haiku muses right here! I’ll be running this competition for two weeks, closing on the 23rd August, so get haiku-ing!
