Pick A Polish: Belle Glamour - Emerald City

Hi lovelies. A slightly later post from me today, I took my sister out shopping for her birthday straight after work. It was fun but I am glad to be sat on my sofa now, having a rest :).

I have another Belle Glamour polish to show you for Pick A Polish this week. I did another one of these posts on a Belle Glamour polish just over a month ago here. This time it is Belle Glamour - Emerald City that I will be showing you. I have swatched this one before but never worn it as a full manicure.

Read on after the jump for more.

Emerald City is what I would describe as a forest green shimmer. This isn't a colour I would wear often, but I do actually quite like it on. This swatch shows three coats. Application was fairly good, it is a tad thick but providing you are patient and let each coat dry properly there aren't any issues. It did dry a little bit brush strokey, so I tried a new technique I saw on Work Play Polish which involved topping it with a matte topcoat first and then adding a shiny top coat over that. I have to say it worked well, the brush strokes are much less prominent using that technique. 

It took me a while to decide what to do with this polish in terms of nail art. In the end I settled on this design by lynieczka on instagram.

For the white and purple flowers I used Sinful Colors - Snow Me White and A England - Guinevere painted with a detail brush.

The yellow flowers were done using a dotting tool, China Glaze - Metro Pollen-tin and W7 - Black.

I was fairly happy with this design in the end, although I think I prefer the colours on the original though. I am loving the colour of this polish much more than I thought I would though, so that is the real winner of this post for me.

Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Thanks for looking.
