Picture Polish Salt Water and Rose - Swatches and Review

Picture Polish just released five new beautiful shades and two of them really caught my eye, so I decided to splurge a little and bought those two. Of course I had to have the turquoise beauty Salt Water as it basically looks like it was made for me. I also couldn't resist the stunning cerise Rose either.

Today I'm going to share my swatches and review of these two polishes with you guys. I also already made a simple nail art look using both of these, but I'll save that to another post.


FIN Water Marble

Of course I had to do a blue and white manicure to root the Finnish ice hockey team at the ice hockey world championship finale last Sunday. Apparently my mani wasn't enough and we came second, but silver isn't too bad either, right?! I've done quite a few blue and white manicures in the past but I hadn't done blue and white water marbling before, so it was about time!


Bright Dotting Tool Flowers

Maybe it's because summer is just around the corner or because of the wonderful weather, but lately I've been feeling like doing some sort of flowers on my nails every time I change my manicure. At first I thought I should do something else, but then I thought why not flowers. So I have another flower look to share with you guys and as you probably guessed, there might be more in the future too... Hope you guys like these flowery looks too!


Hatch And Yellow

Hatch, the gorgeous white speckeled Cirque Colors shade! It was definitely one of my favorite polishes last year and I was really happy to hear that it's again available Speckeled & Sparkled collection. So if you missed it the first time it was released now is your chance, though keep in mind it's still limited edition.
 
I got Hatch originally for review from Cirque Colors, I really loved it from the very first second I tried it on and I've been using it quite a few times since. I think it looks really good just by itself and that's how I've worn it most of times. This time I wanted to spice it up with just a little hint of yellow, so I added some simple dots with dotting tools and OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana.

This was such a simple look, but with a special polish like Hatch, it's still anything but dull. Hatch has this amazingly interesting look ant the formula is still such perfection: two easy-breezy coats is all that it needs.

If it's not clear from my high praises already I'll say it: if you don't own Hatch already, you should definitely get it! I'm sure you wont regret it.

Delicate Spring Flowers

I feel like I've been lately running out of nail art ideas and it has also meant that I've easily gone with the same nails for week or more. Thankfully Instagram, Pinterest and of course all the other blogs are full of ideas to use as an inspiration. I totally fell in love with the delicate flowers look by @lacquer_liefde so I just had to try it myself. I pretty much went with the same look as the original manicure, just changed the colors a bit.


This was fairly easy to do: I just used two coats of Cirque Colors Mermaid Parade on my thumb, index and pinky nails and one coat of Cirque Colors Galinda on my middle and ring fingers. Then I just painted the white petals with Essie Black and added some silver on top of the flowers as well as little dots on the other nails with Essie Aprés-chic and a dotting tool.

Somehow it seemed like my freehand painting skills had gone missing and my flowers didn't really turn out as neat as I wanted. I should probably practice those skills more... Anyhow, it didn't really matter too much, as I really really loved this look! It was a perfect spring time nail art and I'm pretty sure I'm going to do some sort of a variation of this look soon. It looks so good!
