Hello my fellow mermaids!
Today I have for you a swatch & review of Pampered Polishes Nail Lacquer contribution to October’s Polish Pickup: “Perfectly Balanced” .
The theme for the month of October is “Villains”, and Timberlin was inspired by Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War. In case you’re not familiar with Polish Pickup, here’s a description: “Polish Pickup is a monthly collaboration of indie polish and products based on a chosen theme. The polishes are available the first Friday – Monday of each month for pre-order purchase”.
This polish is only going to be available for pre-order from October 5 (11 am EST) to October 8 (Midnight EST), and it’s going to be $12 with a cap of 200 bottles.
Let’s get into the swatches!
“Perfectly Balanced” is a periwinkle purple crelly base with gold-bronze-silver UCC flakies, copper-gold-green UCC flakies, copper-gold-fuschia UCC flakies, violet-pink-gold UCC flakies, gold flakes, rainbow crystal chameleon flakes, silver holo micro shreds, and a dusting of holo shimmer.
Shown here is 2 coats plus topcoat.
The different flakies on this polish remind me of the Infinity Stones, anyone else see them? Being a huge Marvel fan I was so excited to try this polish, and I have to say it was everything I hoped.
Depending on how thin you make your coats you may need a third one, but this was opaque for me in 2 coats.
