Wavy

Hey guys!

True to tradition I always wear green to my exams and in exam periods and as it is almost time to hand in my bachelor project, I do so these days as well. This time in a simple wavy negative space style featuring piCture pOlish Glitch.

For the manicure I used a small nail art brush and piCture pOlish Glitch to create the simple negative space effect by painting the waves directly onto my naked nails.

I love me some simple negative space nail art!

piCture pOlish Summer

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of piCture pOlish Summer.
Summer is a medium coral polish with holographic glitter and holographic flakes.

The formula on this polish is amazingly smooth - it stays exactly where you put it and it is not too thick and not too thin. The glitters might need a tiny bit of manipulation with the brush to get them evenly distributed, but it is not a big problem at all. The opacity is great as well and it only needs two coats to be completely opaque. Another incredible thing about this polish is that it dries in no time.
The only bad thing I have to say about this polish is that it dries down a little gritty, but it is nothing a good top coat can't fix.


Close up!


I was positively surprised by this polish - the color and the formula is perfect!

Cartoon

Hey guys!

Today I have some fun cartoon nails to share with you inspired by Cutepolish!

For the manicure I started off with a red base of By K. Denmark Oy-Mak on all my nails. Afterwards I followed this tutorial by Cutepolish using a small nail art brush and black and white acrylic paint. I finished everything off with a matte top coat of Essie Matte About You.

I think this manicure is so fun!

Pearlescent

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of some pearlescent powder from Born Pretty Store (#39324).
I bought color #7, which is a pink to aqua blue to green powder (when over white)


I applied the powder over white (here I used Essence Wild White Ways) using the chrome powder technique by JauntyJuli. It was really easy to apply - I was actually surprised by how easy it was to use.
The only downside to this product is the fact that you can not use a regular top coat on top of it, as it will ruin the effect.


I think this powder is so beautiful! The pictures does not do them justice, but it was hard to capture the effect and I had to take pictures outside my light box to capture more of the effect, which unfortunately made the picture quality worse.

Lemming

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of a long time lemming of mine: the beautiful Cupcake Polish Berry Good Looking!
Berry Good Looking is a purple linear holographic nail polish.

The formula is amazing and it applies smoothly to the nails. The opacity is incredible as well and it is almost completely opaque in one coat (I applied two coats on the pictures below though).

Edit: I have been made aware that there is numerous formulations of this polish - this one being a darker purple than the original (that I have seen swatches of online). I have to say that I am disappointed and even though it is a stunning shade, it is not what I expected.

Stay polished.

piCture pOlish Blue

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of piCture pOlish Blue.
Blue is a bright cobalt blue creme (it is actually a dupe to Chanel Vibrato - let me know if you want a comparison).

The formula is amazing on this polish! It stays exactly where you put it, which makes it incredibly easy to work with. The opacity is good and it needs two coats to be completely opaque.


I always gravitate towards this shade of blue - seriously so beautiful!
