piCture pOlish Twinkle with Bundle Monster cheetah print

This polish is one of those polishes which comes out totally different than you expect it to. Luckily, it was in a good way.
This is one of the piCture pOlish nail polishes I won in Julia’s giveaway.
In the bottle it’s a very, very light lilac with a subtle sparkle through it. Now here it is on the nail:

You can’t tell me that’s lilac! To me, it looks pink. A beautiful, dainty pink. Unfortunately the beautiful sparkle doesn’t translate onto the nail, but it’s still amazing.
Silly me forgot to take a photo of the polish before I stamped all over it, but this is two coats stamped with Konad Princess Special Polish in White using the Bundle Monster plate BM-221.
The formula was pretty good. It was a little thick at times, but nothing unmanageable. I’m really starting to become obsessed with these piCture pOlishes. They are Aussie and affordable (by Aussie standards. Nail-a-holics overseas may think $9.95 is a bit rich for a polish but it’s really not when you consider how much OPI costs over here).

I’m completely in love with the square bottles and the font they use on their labels. It just looks really well put together. The only thing that truly irritates me about these polishes is the little subheading above the name of the polish on the label.
Have a look at the photo below and tell me what’s wrong with this picture:

If you haven’t noticed, it’s probably because you’re not a total English and grammar perfectionist like I am.
The label on Flirt clearly says “warning you may get loads of attention!”
Argh. There should be a colon in there somewhere, I’m sure of it.
Okay, so they’re not all like this but there are a few. And it annoys me. Because if I were to go and spent a tonne of cash on my own business creating nail polishes, I would be making sure everything is perfect before selling them to the public.

Alright, I’m being a bit harsh. I think it’s the journalist in me coming out to play. I’m generally a total pain in the butt when it comes to spelling and grammar because if I notice something wrong I will point and laugh at it. My bad.

Anyway, back to the awesome things about piCture pOlish! Their colour selection is to die for!! When I won Julia’s giveaway, I spent so long trawling through their website trying to narrow down my huge wish list to just three polishes. Let me tell you, it was incredibly hard to pick just three beauties. I chose Twinkle, Marine and Flirt (as you can see above) and I am so happy with my choices. They are such gorgeous summer shades.

Do you have any piCture pOlishes?



  1. Another awesome mani Em! I need to get myself some stamps, they look like so much fun!!

  2. It does look pink! I am less bothered by the lack of a colon (or maybe an em-dash) than I am by the odd capitalization in the brand name. :)

  3. This is such a cute combo! You make me want to get into Konading haha. I don't have any picture polishes, but I did order an ozotic recently!
    && LOL @ the flirt label. I'd add a dash or something at the very least :P

  4. Pretty, although such a shame the microshimmer doesn't show on the nail

    I agree with Karen about the capitalisation in piCture pOlish

  5. Nice mani! I also hate the weird capitalisation in the brand name. Also the fact the names of the polishes don't have a capital letter! That bugs me!

  6. Such fantastic stamping. Gorgeous colour too.

  7. Thanks everyone :D

    Julia - Yesss, you must! Stamping is good fun, especially coming up with new colour combos and designs!

    Eileen - ooh which Ozotic did you order? I actually don't have any!

    Kristy - I wanted to see the microshimmer too :( It would have been stunning!

    I agree about the weird capitalisation!! For some odd reason I don't mind that the polish names are in lower case... because it suits the font!

  8. I am a stickler for spelling-it's such an easy fix!! And yes that is NOT lilac-its' pink!

  9. what an awesome mani!!! super super pretty hun! love it..
    hope i can do as good as you..
    let's keep in touch=)))
    would love to see more notds from you! <3

  10. It is an easy fix - get someone to proof read it before you print!!!! I'm glad I'm not going crazy ... definitely pink!!

    Aww thanks, Diane. That's a lovely comment :) Loving your blog too :) xx

  11. I love their bottle shape ... they stack perfectly into my helmer :)

  12. I love it too :D And the rubber cap!!
