Peek A Boo! I See You!

Haha, I'm having quite a bit of fun with these corny post titles...  I hope you are too!  Anway, I have an amazing hot pink polish to share with you today called Peek A Boo by Bear Pawlish, and it's stamped with a metallic MPolish that will be releasing very soon!  Read on for more pics and info!

So, if you have been waiting for some good metallic stamping polishes, the wait is almost over.  MPolish is releasing a Metallics collection on Monday, May 25th!

Mpolish is a press sample.  All other polishes purchased by me.
I was not compensated for this review.  All opinions are my own.

The Metallics collection will consist of six metallic polishes in various colors, all Five-Free and cruelty-free as usual.  They will be available in 5mL bottles (minis) for $3.25 ea, and new 15mL bottles (full size) for $9.50 ea.  The full mini collection will cost $18 and the full full-sized collection will cost $54.  Keep an eye out for new shipping policies as well!

L-R: Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator, OPI Nail Envy, Bear Pawlish Peek A Boo, MPolish Iron, MPolish Baroque (I ended up not using this one), Bear Pawlish Oso Quick topcoat

For this mani, I used Bear Pawlish Peek A Boo as my base color, over a coat of Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator and a coat of OPI Nail Envy.  WOAH.  I love Bear Pawlish, and Peek A Boo certainly did not disappoint!  Below is one coat of Peek A Boo.  One glorious coat!

Peek A Boo is a hot pink polish with a linear holo and a bit of a duochrome effect.  It definitely has a touch of coral in certain lights, and a strong blue flash in all lights.  I absolutely adore the brushes in these polishes.  They are perfect for my nails.  Anyway, back to Peek A Boo, formula is perfect, self-leveling, non-staining, and hugely pigmented.  Below is two coats with no topcoat.  It dries pretty quickly and to a shiny finish.

Since I was stamping, I topped it with a coat of topcoat.  Bear Pawlish just released a Four-Free quick dry topcoat called Oso Quick.  OMG.  It's crazy awesome.  It dries so fast and dries to a super shiny finish.  I ended up using wayyyy too much at first, which makes me laugh because the brush is pretty small but apparently holds a lot of polish.  I had no shrinkage with this, except for on the very tips of my thumbnails, but that was user error.  I topped them with topcoat, then when it was completely dry I topped them again for extra protection (I like a lot of layers on my nails; it keeps my preciouses safe...Lol).  I had no issues with the rest of my nails.

Let's talk metallic stamping polish.  The first one of the collection that I have to show you today is called Iron by MPolish.  Iron is a fabulously bold gunmetal silver.  It can be worn over light or dark polishes.  Iron is extremely pigmented but I had no staining with it.  I used the Pet'la Oorie plate for my stamping images.  Iron was so easy to use with the Pet'la plate.  I got a smooth scrape and full transfer every time.

The sun decided to play for a short bit, so I was able to catch a bit of the holo in Peek A Boo, shown below.

And since I finally caved and bought a macro lens for my iPhone 6, I present to you some true macro shots of my mani!!  Look at the stamping, it's nearly a perfect image!
