Hello lovelies,

 

It's finally happening!!! I have my own piCture pOlish collaboration shade and it's called Dragonfly! I've been lucky to be one of the winners of piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 and my polish is being released today! I'm beyond excited and I truly hope you will love it as much as I do. It wasn't easy to keep this secret for well over a year and I'm glad I can now share it with you.

 

So without a further ado, let me introduce to you, the Dragonfly:

Inspired by the beauty and elegance of dragonflies, this shade represents the ever-changing hints of colour in their wings... I was particularly inspired by this and this photograph. As much as I'm not keen on other insects, dragonflies fascinate me and many of their species are oh so beautiful! I wanted polish that would reflect that.

 

Dragonfly is a deep teal green with bijou holo finish (a mix of delicate small holo particles and coloured flecks that look amazing in bright sunlight and three dimensional in low lights). This dark colour is perfect for the Autumn/Winter season yet the subtle holographic finish will look stunning in the Summer sun too!

 

The formula is 5-free and as good as all the other piCture pOlishes which I'm very happy about. It applied very nicely and two coats were fully opaque. It dried fast and smooth but I still applied topcoat. I was a little afraid that it will stain but after wearing it for three days I had no staining! I wore OPI Ridge Filler Basecoat underneath.

What can I say, I love this polish so much and I'm so happy with how it came out! The bijou holo finish makes it quite special and is best visible in the shade and in the bottle. I want to say huge thanks to the ladies at piCture pOlish who worked with me on this and who made it all happen. It is really one of the dreams come true to have my blog name on the nail polish bottle! I will of course do a dragonfly nail art with it but as well but that's for another day ;)

Hello lovelies,

 

When I did the partial cube pattern for piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2014, I couldn't leave it just like that so I took the time and coloured third shade in to create side of the cubes. For this I have chosen subtle piCture pOlish Tiffany. It did change the design slightly but not dramatically and I thought it is worth sharing :)

 

The polishes I've used are piCture pOlish Tiffany, Atomic and Moody Blues and black acrylic paint. All polishes available at piCture pOlish website.

I'm also wearing two new rings from Astrid & Miyu*. The first one is Silver Zodiac Ring Libra with two opal stones that fits nicely on my middle finger (available here). The second ring is a Classic Silver Chevron Midi ring with a little crystal. This ring is available here.

 

The Astrid & Miyu rings are so far the best quality rings I've worn yet. They are sturdy and well-crafted which makes it very easy for me to show them to you and recommend them :)
