Painted Sabotage: Ice Flowers

Hey folks!  Hope you're all doing okay and not freezing to death!  I kind of froze my butt off taking these pics and my fingers were kind of red and chapped and unhappy by the end of the swatch session, haha.

I actually came up with the name for this polish!  Wilson Bentley, one of the first photographers of snowflakes, often referred to the crystals as "ice flowers," so I thought that would make a great name for this wintry color!

Painted Sabotage Ice Flowers features a mix of white and periwinkle glitters in an icy, moody blue, shimmery base.  As with all Painted Sabotage polishes, the formula was great and application was smooth and easy.  It takes 2-3 coats to reach full opacity (if you have long nails, you'll probably need 3 coats).  Dry time was average.

Pardon the red fingers, I was freezing!

This polish is pretty much a perfect representation of winter in a bottle, but I think it could fit in with your spring pastels as well!

Painted Sabotage polishes cost $9.75 for 15mL and can be purchased from the brand's Etsy store.  To stay up-to-date on the latest releases from Painted Sabotage, Like the brand's Facebook page.
