***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***
Hey Sugas! It’s Friday, so how about a quick middle/high school math recap. We all learned that Pi is =3.1459265859 and it explains the special mathematical relationship of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, right? Ringing any bells? Let’s continue… it’s an irrational number, which means that its value cannot be expressed as a simple fraction and it’s an infinite decimal.
Ok, so let’s think about that word ‘infinite’ for just a sec…
The definition of infinite is “limitless or endless in space, extent, or size; impossible to measure or calculate.”
LIMITLESS!!! WOW!!! If we think about that in terms of polish, we would have a limitless about of polish. Polish, polish, everywhere!
Well that’s exactly the inspiration behind today featured ‘new to me’ brand, PI Colors. PI Colors was established in Los Angeles, CA in 2017 by Trish Robal, owner and creator. Trish aims to “create an INFINITE array of vegan and 10-free nail colors .” Today I have the Seashell Collection which features 4 polishes influenced by clams, mollusks and shells.
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issues (liquid latex peel off base coat) by Vapid, Top Coat (glossy QDTC) by Glisten & Glow and Matte Topcoat (matte topcoat) by Sassy Sauce Polish. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
