Picture Polish - Heavy Metal, Jade, Popsicle & Tease

I told you I had more Picture Polish shades to show you, so here are four more.

Heavy Metal - this one is very fine silver glitter in a dark grey base.  I really like this one because its not just your regular silver glitter.  This one is part of the Picture Polish mesh range, and the glitter particles are so jam packed it is easily opaque in two coats.  Because of all the small glitter this one is a little thick to apply, but it dries thinly and smoothly and surprisingly doesn't need more than one layer of top coat.

Jade - This one is a bright pastel turquoise shade with a pretty silver shimmer. I like how the silver shimmer gives that sparkling wet look to my nails.  This was two coats with a coat of Seche Vite. Good formula.

Popsicle - what a perfect name for this one.  With the ridiculous heat wave at the moment I could sure go me an orange popsicle like this right now. Popsicle is a bright orange with golden shimmer.  This one is a bit sheerer that the other shades.  This is three coats and I can still see through to my nail line in these photos, although it did look pretty opaque in real life.

Tease - This is another of the mesh shades.  This one has the same micro silver glitter as in Heavy Metal but is in a rich lolly pink base.  Again because of the glitters its formula is a little thicker, but it still applied easily and I was able to get it neat around my cuticles (which is probably a good thing cause I reckon these tiny glitter would be a bitch to clean up)  This was two coats with Seche Vite top coat.

Four more to show you next week an then I'll update my colour guide.

Stay safe Aussies in any bushfire areas - and try to keep cool!


  1. Awesome swatches, I love Tease so much

  2. I wish I was a "pinks" girl as Tease is very pretty. I'm more of a neutral so Heavy Metal is where it's at for me - in more ways than one LOL!
