I have had to keep this secret for so long. Way back in 2012 I was one of the lucky bloggers who received two piCture pOlish shades to swatch and review for Blogfest 2012 (here and 2013 here). Even luckier I was then selected as one of the bloggers to work with piCture pOlish to produce a shade of my own, my dream colour with my name on it!
Now coming up with my dream colour was interesting. I love green but Cathy from More Nail Polish had already beaten me to the perfect green with piCture pOlish Kryptonite. The other thing I love is lavender.
Lavender Bay in Sydney is named after an ancestor, George Lavender who was a boatswain on the Charlotte in the first fleet and later boatswain of the convict hulk Phoenix which was moored in the bay.
When I got married I kept the name and we had a floral theme for our wedding with lots of lavender.

For our honeymoon we visited a lavender farm and when I close my eyes and relax that's where I go. I picture fields of lavender.

|This was a cool drink, you can tell right?|
|There were so many bees around when I took this photo, the noise was incredible!|
Serenity is a shimmery blue green with a subtle lavender haze and just enough purple glitter to enhance the lavender without dominating. It's one of those polishes that changes with every angle. In some lights (like flash) it looks like a turquoise foil and in other light it becomes a grey geen. The lavender haze is more obvious with indirect light and impossible to photograph. I've taken lots of photos to try and show all the colour changes.
