piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2012

Pin It
Have you been counting down to Blog Fest '12 since last year, just like me?!

Well this year I am incredibly lucky to be a part of piCture pOlish's CELE(Blog)RATION!!! There are around 80 bloggers worldwide taking part in BF'12, so keep an eye out for all their posts. First I'll show you the polishes, then at the end of the post I'll give you all the info you need to get your sweaty little hands on PP's pretties.

PP sent me 2 brand new shades to review. The first is a part of their Mesh line - Tease. And Attitude is from their new Collaboration line, designed for Overall Beauty

 This is glittery pink love at it's finest! With a pink tinted base and chock-a-block full of fine silver and rose pink square glitter, you'll feel like you're on a sugar high!
This was certainly created for girls who wear pink loud and proud. It has an overall metallic sort of look to it but up closer you can see all the glittery goodness. The formula is on the thicker side and it applies like a dream - always a bonus with glitters- and it didn't dry too textured! It does dry a wee bit matte so you'll get better wear with a top coat. I only needed 2 coats of Tease for full coverage and then I topped it off with 1 coat of Seche Vite for shine.

It looked like the perfect glitter polish to mattify so I slapped on a layer of Essie Matte About You.

I think I almost like it better this way!

 First, sorry for the average photos - we just had no sunshine for days on end and attitude did not photograph well under my lamp! It's 100x more gorgeous in person! This was made in collaboration with Kim of Overall Beauty and will be sold exclusively by Overall Beauty and Picture Polish.
So Attitude is a dark grape/violet purple (almost blurple) scattered holographic. It has irregular sized chunky holo flakes strewn throughout and gives the effect of outer-space on your fingernails!! In the macro shot with the raindrop on my nail you can see it almost looks like purple marble when the light isn't hitting it. The formula was sort of average, maybe a little bit thick and applied nicely in 2 coats. However, I experienced a minimal amount of cuticle drag because I didn't let it dry completely in between coats, so I added a 3rd layer to even out my patchy nails! It dried nice and glossy so I just added 1 layer of top coat for protection.

Picture Polish have also added QR codes to every bottle of polish so when you scan them you are taken directly to the website your bottle was purchased from - ie. either Picture Polish online or a Network member.





 New Zealand's brand new Network member is Gracie Lou! Woohoo, it just got easier for us Kiwis to PP it up :)

Today PP have officially launched 11 new shades, so head to their website or your local Network member online store and check out all the new pretties priced around AUD$11.50 each.
