Picture Polish Bonbon and Gelato with black ruffian

I can't tell you how much I loved this mani.  So simple, yet it just looked incredible on my nails. I got so many comments about them.

The base is just a simple gradient using Picture Polish bonbon and gelato.  I then painted the ruffian edge around the back of the nail using a fine brush, black polish and a very steady hand.

I also have some swatches of these two new shades from Picture Polish.  Oh how I love a good creme polish, and Picture Polish really do know how to do a good creme.

Bonbon - a bright and pigmented medium blue shade. On shorter nails like mine, you can get away with just one thicker coat of this. Think one coat means it's a stainer? Nope, I was pleased to see no smurf fingers after removing this.  This is one coat with Seche Vite top coat.

Gelato - a bright peachy orange which applied perfectly with two coats. 

Picture Polish Bonbon and Gelato are available from Picture Polish. International ladies may be able purchase through one of the many Network stockists if they have this in stock.

Polishes provided for consideration.


  1. Astonishing! I'll try to copycat these if you don't mind :)

  2. I'm impressed over how steady a hand you must have! Wow!!

  3. Gorgeous colours and great mani :-D

  4. That looks awesome!! I don't normally like ruffians, but you've managed to make it look incredible. Flawless work :)
