Mrs. P's Nail Potions - Your Pool or Mine?

Hello all!  Today I have another sneak peak at an up and coming Potion which will be part of my Summer 2012 Collection, Your Pool or Mine?  This is a fabulous vibrant bright blue jelly base with iridescent flakies instead of glitter.  I will admit that the application was a tad difficult as it was hard to get an even coat with normal brush strokes (it would tend to just push the color to the sides and the flakies wouldn't spread).  However, if you treat it kind of like a gel and build it up more in a pool in the center of your nail and spread it and smooth it out towards the sides it works like a charm and you get fantastic coverage.  All these pictures are two coats with one coat of Essie Good to Go top coat and the result was a super smooth and shiny almost glass-like finish.

The photos below were taken near a window during an overcast day.

The photos below were taken outside in direct sunlight.

I was very pleasantly surprised and LOVED the look of this Potion in the direct sunlight.  I couldn't believe how it shimmered and the marbled/textured look that the flakies give off especially in the sunlight is amazing and very pleasing on the eyes.  The vibrant blue just becomes even more vibrant in the sunlight and reminds me very much of the bright aqua blue of a Caribbean sea.

Please excuse the dry cuticles.  Our son caught a viral infection from daycare and there was a lot of disinfecting and washing and cleaning so it totally dried my hands out :(
