Today's piCture pOlish Monday is also an excuse to have a bit of a laugh in a Then and Now post :)
I "think" Denim was one of the first PP polishes I bought - it's just such a lovely blue: soft, intense, medium hued. In many ways, it's blue perfection. It's also pretty much a dead on dupe for Essie Smooth Sailing.
Denim takes its lushness not just from the beauty of that colour, but also from the flakie goodness scattered within, giving it a flecked, snagged appearance (a bit like denim. Woah!).
There's also this gorgeous shimmer going on too. So soft, so delicate - just sublime.
In all my blues, and somehow I seem to have amassed A LOT, this is one of my favourites. It's just lovely.
So, when did Denim first appear on this blog? Well, almost exactly a year ago, in April 2012, although I'm sure I'd owned the polish longer than that.
All you got was a straight swatch, with that rounded nail shape. Photos starting to get better. Not tooooo grim, but not awesomulous either :)
Either way - enjoy !!!
