Picture Polish Honeymoon

Well it's Christmas Eve, and for the first time since I've had my children I'm not sitting here panicky wrapping presents and assembling toys.  You see this year we had a cunning plan.  I took the last three days of work and took the kids down the coast on Monday to spend the night camping.  

My kids had never been camping, and I can't remember when I ever went camping, so they were so excited to go.  We squeezed into a little three person tent with our sleeping bags and blow up mattresses, we ate sausage sandwiches for dinner and managed to stay dry despite the downpour in a Summer storm that came through around 3.00am.  We spent the next day playing at the beach and generally tiring the kids out.  In the mean time, back at home, Mr More Nail Polish did amazing things!  He found all the kids presents that we have stashed around the house over the year and wrapped them all up.  

When we got home from the coast, under the tree was full of presents and the kids eyes lit up.  I can't believe they have actually managed not to touch the for the last 24 hours - there's a Christmas miracle right there!

So once I finish typing up this post, I'm going to sit down and do my Christmas nails.  My mum is going to join me and we are going to drink champagne and watch Carols by Candlelight.

So now lets quickly get to these nails.

Today I have of of the recent collaboration shades from Picture Polish, Honeymoon by the Manicurator.  The colour is inspired by her exotic Caribbean honeymoon location, however for me this time round it was inspired by the colour to create something cold feeling.  I ended up doing a simple stamping mani with a feature nail of Picture Polish Storm.






Honeymoon is a soft pastel green with blue to purple colour shifting glass flecks and a scattered holo finish.  I used two coats for these swatches and still had a very slight visible nail nail. Dry time was good.  You can really see the glass fleck shimmer in the shade, and in the sun the scattered holo comes out to play, it's a lovely combo of shimmer and holo.

If you are wondering how it compares to other similar Picture Polish collaboration shades, siren song or tail feather, both are much greener than this.





Picture Polish Honeymoon is available from Picture Polish. International ladies can purchase through one of the many Network stockists.

  3. Beautiful mani! I also loved how you and your husband worked together to give your kids both wonderful camping memories and a Christmas "miracle." I have, of course, a couple questions: what plate and polish did you use for the stamping? And, it sounds so yummy(!), what's a sausage sandwich? Thank you!

    1. Thank you Delphi - In answer to your questions - I used BM407 and Mundo de Unas white stamping polish. A sausage sandwich is just what we Aussies call a sausage in a single piece of bread with tomato sauce. Merry Christmas!

  4. I love this post, it's so good that you did this with your kids, I can picture that little tent and the cosy, giggly time you must have had, and I must say, what a keeper you have, a man who searches the world for the perfect trinket and when he comes up spare, he wont be stopped, he will get it, he will get it made. In the mean time he will plan a party for his best girl, and a cake, not just any cake and in all of my 58 years I have never, ever known a man who has said, let me do that stressful stuff for you this Xmas. Beautiful, it's just beautiful and I'll hazard a guess that you are no slouch in the lovely wives category. Thank you for Honeymoon, it's beautiful, and thank you for another year of beautiful swatches. Merry Christmas to you and your family xoxo Jo

  6. That's a lovely manicure. I like the base color. It reminds me of OPI's My Dogsled is a Hybrid. I had that out earlier today and very nearly did my Christmas mani with it but then shelved it in favor of a more traditional and rarely worn glittery red. But yeah I like the trees stamped over that gorgeous base polish. That is really pretty even without the stamping.
