piCture pOlish – Violet Femme, Mad Magenta & Flirt

I’ve built up quite a few piCture pOlish swathes to show you. It’s been a bit difficult to decide what to say because there are just as many things that I dislike about these polishes as I like… And I don’t like talking badly about any brand !

So let’s get the bad out of the way first. I don’t like the brushes at all. This is what they look like :

Very skinny, very square, and not very flexible, so it’s hard to get neat cuticles and an even spread of polish. But the bottle top has a rubberised texture that is great to work with.

I also feel like the price is too high – 11€ for basic creme shades, 13-15€ for glittery or harder-to-find polishes. That’s pretty steep for 11ml bottles!

That said, the bottles look beautiful, they are thick-glassed, square and quite heavy.

Violet Femme is the first polish that caught my eye. It’s a super-pigmented deep purple with a smooth, semi-matte finish. It’s pretty stunning! I did get some shrinking back from the tips as it dried though, so if you try this polish, do cap them well.

Mad Magenta is one of the most beautiful magenta polishes I have ever seen ! It dries to a shiny finish, and is opaque in two coats.

Flirt is a classic hot pink, a little more muted than Mad Magenta. It’s also got a glossy finish, and I found the formula to be pretty good.

The brush, however, had a bristle sticking right out ! I’ll snip it off, but it doesn’t help my overall impression of the brand…

These are great polishes if you can afford the luxury, and the colour range is spectacular. It’s just such a shame about these brushes !

O.P.I. – Suzi’s Hungary Again ! – NL E73

Wow, this polish is pink ! Like, hot pink with barbies melted into it, but neon, and really, really pink! Totally love this colour !

Application was okay. I went for a clear base coat, and this is 3 coats but you can clearly see my smile line. So I should have worn a white base polish !

It dries with a semi-matte finish, as neons often do, and it is a fast drier. Can totally see myself rocking hot pink tips this summer 🙂
