piCture pOlish – Peaches’n’Cream

I’m afraid I might have ruined this polish for myself. I have been lusting after it for a while, and when it came in stock in Pshiiit’s boutique, I just jumped at the chance to buy it! But I think I had built it up so high in my mind, that maybe I was always going to find it a bit disappointing.

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect peachy creme – I really love how peach looks on my skin tone, and it’s a bit different, whilst remaining feminine and work-friendly. But this one doesn’t quite hit the mark for me, for the following reasons :

  • colour – it dries a bit brighter and more pinky than in the bottle. In the bottle, it’s definitely a peachy pastel, on the nail, it’s very nearly almost neon…
  • brush – I’m not a fan of piCture pOlishes brushes – they are just a bit too thin and rigid, making the polish hard to spread, and it’s tricky to get a good smooth line around your cuticles – each to their own I guess !
  • formula – I expect pale shades to need building up a bit – what I don’t expect is for them to be incredibly runny, flooding cuticles all over the shop, and being hard to build up
  • bubbles – with all of those layers (4 + base coat), it took forever to dry – but I waited patiently – it still bubbled !

Yep, these photos are after clean up! I kind of gave up after a while

I’m sorry to write such a negative post, to try to balance it out :

  • the skinny brush might be handy for nail art
  • the colour isn’t bad, it’s just not what I was hoping for – it could actually be quite pretty paired with gold, for example
  • I like the name of the polish

Like I said, I was expecting this polish to be perfect. So it’s not really piCture pOlishes’ fault that I’m not totally satisfied. It just feels like a bit of a bummer when it’s quite expensive (11€ for 11ml) and I waited so long to find it…

    I love the color! But I’m super picky on nail polish brushes. I like your thorough review. Great job, and this shade looks fantastic on you!

  3. […] trying to use them more – they really are much more easy to apply. So I decided to revisit Peaches’n'Cream. I’m definitely a lot happier with it now, but I’m still not sure if it’s the […]
