piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013

Celebrating the Year of the Blogger

I was so excited to have been selected to take part in the once a year world wide phenomena that is the Picture Polish Blog Fest. I couldn't wait to see what colours the girls at Picture Polish had chosen for my challenge which was to create your most ‘amazing nail art manicure ever’ using the three piCture pOlish shades provided. 

My three shades are piCture pOlish Mad Magenta a light purple cream, piCture pOlish Peacock a green glitter in a purple base and piCture pOlish Hot Lips a bright neon pink pictured above. And they sat on my desk for at least a week whilst I contemplated the enormity of the challenge, before I started playing and planning designs with them. This then generated alot of interest at work when I turned up with a different design on each nail, all of which I then discounted!

First of all I used  piCture pOlish Revolution as my base coat, I then did three coats of Picture Polish Peacock on my index, middle and pinkie fingers and three coats of Sally Hansen White On on my thumb and ring finger. I must admit I then went and did the washing whilst I considered whether I wanted to do a safe design or something I had never tried before!

I went with something I have never tried before, after all this is meant to be my most ‘amazing nail art manicure ever’! I grabbed a medium double ended dotting tool and put a couple of drops of  piCture pOlish Hot Lips and piCture pOlish  Mad Magenta onto a small mixing dish. I then alternated between the two colours and just dotted irregular spots onto my nails.

It really doesn't matter what shapes you end up with because we are doing a leopard print!

Next I put a couple of drops of piCture pOlish Peacock into a dish and with a very fine dotting tool I just outlined my spots with C's and irregular lines and dot's.

I was so proud of my mani that I probably took far too many photos, I then had a horrendous job of choosing the next set of photos which were taken after a clean up and with the addition of a Seche Vite top coat.



For those that don't know me, I very rarely swatch colours, what you see on my blog are mani's that I wear. So to prove that this mani is really easy and you can't really go wrong here is my left hand.

There are quite a few bloggers worldwide taking part in Blog Fest 2013 and all the nail art creations go into the running to be chosen to create a collaboration shade with piCture pOlish to be launched in 2014.
