piCture pOlish - Siren Song by Rebecca Likes Nails!

Hello everyone! You're about to witness a dream-come-true moment here on RLN!

As I'm sure you are aware, the fantastic ladies at piCture pOlish have been doing collaboration shades with bloggers for a year or more now. And for an entire year I have been keeping a big secret. A BIG secret. But the time has finally come to spill the beans... I have my very own piCture pOlish!


During last year's Blog Fest I was one of the winners chosen to get their own shade, and because so many shades eventually were created, it has taken a full year or more for mine to come out! But it has just made the experience so much sweeter in the end to finally get to share this pretty polish.
It's crazy to imagine having a nail polish with my name on it that I designed and can call my own. And it has been an honor and a pleasure to create it with such an amazing company.  

Without further ado... Swatches!!


piCture pOlish - Siren Song by Rebecca Likes Nails
Siren Song is a turquoise mint polish with strong silver flecked shimmer. I don't want to call it shimmer or glitter because it is finer than glitter but heavier than shimmer, almost a hybrid of the two. I believe the ingredient used to make it is some sort of paste if my memory serves me correctly, but it was a while ago when we talked details of the polish.


The formula flows easily, and my swatches show two coats, but you may need three depending on your polishing style.
I got my final bottles on Friday morning and I've been carrying one around with me ever since to show some friends and family so they can see exactly how cool I am on the internet. HA!


The inspiration for this polish is actually pretty dorky. One of the other things I love as much as nail polish is blink-182. Tom & Mark from blink have signature guitars and basses from Fender which are Surf Green with pearloid pickguards (example here and here.) So of course my polish had to be the same great shade of turquoise, with intense shimmer to represent the shimmery pickguard!
One day I'll own a Surf Green guitar or bass and play it with my perfectly polished Siren Song nails. One day...


Because the color is so oceanic and reminiscent of stuff like mermaids, I decided to name it Siren Song after the old lore of Sirens and the irresistible songs they would sings to fisherman to entice them. Because my polish is so irresistible! Right?
(This also ties in another one of my dorky obsessions - the TV show Supernatural, which did an episode about Sirens!)

And of course I cannot go without mentioning the fact that my bestie Dan made up the tagline for the polish and he is very proud of it and so am I! (He came up with it on the very last day that I had to submit my final name and tagline... Haha! Talk about last minute decisions.)


Here's a purdy macro. I love the sparkle! It adds just the right amount of interest to the polish without taking away from the serene color.


I am so so so ecstatic to have created my own polish with piCture pOlish and of course a gigantic thank you goes out to them for helping make my polish dreams come true!

You can find this polish on picturepolish.com.au now, and other retailers such as Nail Polish Canada for my Canadian pals!
I hope you all love this polish as much as I do, and if you decide to purchase it, I need to see pictures of you all wearing it! Yay!!

  20. Rebecca, I had to tell you that I picked this shade up and I LOVE it. It is such a perfect turquoise mint and the shimmer/glitter (glimmer? haha) adds an element that I have not seen in any other turquoise mint polish. I LOVE it. Also, it's cool to have a shade from a blogger I've followed for awhile. :)
