Picture Polish Sunflower and Saltwater

Today I have two of the newer collaboration Picture Polish shades, combined into one mani.  As soon as I got Sun Flower, I knew the perfect nail art I wanted to create. I had Messy Mansion Plate MM68 with all the sunflower images on it and I was yet to use it.  

I started with a base of Saltwater (swatch and description below) and them created stamping decals using MM68, sunflower for the petals and Demeter for the centers.

Here is my swatch of Salt water, created by @Nailstorming on Instagram. I think Gianna is only on instagram, she doesn't have a blog.  She does amazing nail art and I'd say most nail art lovers are already following her as she has a huge following.

Salt water is a pastel turquoise crelly with scattered holo.  It's beautifully opaque in two coats and it's a really pretty flattering shade.

Sun flower is a collaboration with @de_briz This is such an unusual shade for a collaboration and really is quite out there.  Personally I don't love it on it's own as it's not the sort of colour I would normally wear, but for nail art I can't express how awesome it is.  Sun flower is very pigmented.  I'd make sure you have a good base coat on if wearing it alone as it left my cuticles a bit yellow.  But pigmentation is exactly what you want in a yellow polish for nail art.  It has the same sort of finish as salt water, that being a crelly finish with scattered holo flakes.  This is two coats.

These collaboration shades are available from Picture Polish. Be sure to check their international stockist listing if you are overseas.

Polishes provided for consideration.
