These were the best of a lot of photographs I took of this polish. My camera has been acting like a little butthead, on and off and when I shot this swatch, it was in a real mood. In fact, it was like that, all that day, through nearly two hundred photographs taken if a long swatch session. One swatch was so bad that I had to dump all of the photos I took of it and I will have to re swatch and re shoot it. Grrr! The formula on th
