piCture pOlish - Atomic by Samarium's Swatches

Can you believe it's Friday again? It seems like weeks just fly by. Anyways, it's time for another piCture pOlish shade. This one is another collaboration shade called Atomic
''Atomic was created with Sarah from Samarium's Swatches  and forms part of our Collaboration collection.  Sarah requested to create a shade based on her love of the Samarium element - of course!  For those of you not in the know 'Samarium' element is a silvery white metal!  So that is what was fashioned!  And yes Atomic is totally explosive...  Atomic is a platinum silver/white metallic holo (scattered) and has no glitter. Atomic contains a holographic shimmer to create a magical shade, complex with a lot going on!'' (piCture pOlish)

Atomic may look like an ordinary silvery white frosty shade at first glance, but it's much more than that. It's actually a quite complex shade which is unfortunately hard to capture on camera. I tried with tilting the bottle in a million different ways and the photo below is the best I got. You can see the scattered holographic shimmer and the main color of it. What you're missing is the bronze/pink sheen under a certain angle. Again one of those 'have to see it in real life' shades.

piCture pOlish, Atomic, 3 coats

I used 3 coats for my swatches because let's face it, it looks better on camera. In real life it's a 2-3 coater. Some of you might even be satisfied with one coat. I expected it to be more on a sheer side, but I'm glad I was wrong. It applied really nicely and the formula is great. People at piCture pOlish did a great job by capturing the beauty of Samarium while keeping the quality level they're known for. It's not my type of shade because I think it makes my hands look old, but I'd definitely recommend it to everyone who like to wear shades like Atomic.

  1. Well it looks really nice actualy even if I don't like silvers in general ;)

  2. Thanks for taking terrific pictures of Atomic!
    Isn't it crazy hard to capture? It's so much fun seeing it on some of my favorite bloggers! <3

    1. Oh, thank you! =) It's not hard but impossible to capture it's true beauty. The color shift just wouldn't show on my photos. It's a great shade and I'm flattered to have gotten the chance to try it.
