Penelope Luz Taurus & Picasso

Good morning and happy Saturday!  Hopefully you didn't have to be up as early as I did today!  3 kids soccer games starting at 9 AM - ugh!  Thankfully I have pretty polish on right?  I have another lovely Brazilian brand to share today.  I am positive Penelope Luz has been around for a while now, but because the translation button didn't work for on the website so I didn't get much information there.  But what I can tell you is that if you are interested in trying out this brand you can purchase directly from Color4Nails!   The price ranges from $8.50 to $10 for a 12ml bottle.  You can also follow Color4Nails on Facebook and Instagram (color4nails).  

*PRESS SAMPLE*

Here we have Taurus.  This is actually my astrological sign so of course I like this.  Alot.  Taurus is a dark green-teal jelly base full of micro glitter, holo and small blue hexs.  It applied nice and even with a good amount of glitter coming out with each brush dip.  This is a very sparkly polish, I tried my best to share pictures that capture the sparkle.  The base was slightly tinted, but I think it's too sheer to build up on it's own.  In my pictures you see 2 coats of Taurus over 2 coats of Nfu Oh 570, a matching green-teal jelly polish (This is so stain-y!  Please excuse my stained finger skin and if you have this one beware!).  Taurus was also very shiny so I didn't need to use topcoat.

And this pretty polish is Picasso!  Picasso is a multi-colored glitter in a clear base that reminds me more of the circus than a Picasso painting.  But you say To-mato, I say Toh-mahto.  I definitely love multi-colored glitter bombs and have my fair share.  Picasso is lovely, it has more of a demure glitter effect.  Not so much "in your face" as some of the others.  I used 2-3 coats of Picasso and do wish more glitter had come out to play on my nails.  The glitters laid flush on my nails.  My bottle also had some pretty good separation going on, but a hearty shake got everything mixed back up.  I have Picasso over 2 coats of OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender.  Again, it was so glossy on it's own I did not need to use topcoat.
