piCture pOlish Blog Fest - Honeydew

Hi everyone! I just wanna show you my greenish-bluish-i'm-not-sure-if-it's-green-or-blue nails. 


So a few months ago, I joined the piCture pOlish blog fest which I honestly thought was a really cool idea. They sent me the shade Honey Dew. When I first opened the package, all I could say was "Wow." I didn't have a nail polish with this shade before. Loving it so far. 


Nails of the day care of piCture pOlish in Honeydew. This shade seems to be the green counter part of baby blue - baby green (if there's such a thing). It's a mint green shade, kinda like a honeydew color but leaning a bit more on the blue side. I actually had a hard time taking pictures of my nails because for some reason, the color kept showing up baby blue-ish in pictures.

Side note: Are you guys having trouble seeing the pics in this post? Lemme know if you are 'coz I uploaded the pics a bit differently this time because Blogger keeps on compressing my pictures :(


I also really like the packaging or the shape of the bottle of piCture pOlish nail polishes. Polishes like this and also like the Caress nail polishes are easier to store and less space-consuming, aren't they? Each shade also has a sort of tagline. "Honeydew - sweet and light, juicy and bright!" Cute :)


I used two coats to get a nice and even color. The polish is not so streaky. Drying time is average. This doesn't chip on me for about 5 days to one week, with top coat. One thing I don't like very much about it is that it bubbles up if you don't let it dry in between coats. Also, you can only get this online. Oh, and if you're going to purchase this, it'll be on the pricey side. This retails for 9.90 AUD. 

piCture pOlish is an Australian nail polish brand. If you want to know more about piCture pOlish nail polishes, check out their website *here.* Price list, shades and swatches are all in there. They have a really wide range of nail colors available. Just looking at the swatches makes me droooooool. Especially *this one* by Sara of Sara Hassan's Blog.

So that's it for my nails this week. How about you, what's on your nails this week? Share! :]
