piCture pOlish – Tiffany

Author: marta  //  Category: Konad, OPI, piCture pOlish, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

This hasn’t been the case in ages, but today’s post was actually put together, photographed and written up yesterday- so, in fact, you are seeing my NOTD.

A NOTD which features the stunning piCture pOlish Tiffany:

piCture pOlish Tiffany is a soft and yet ‘bright’ Tiffany blue (leaning mint-green ever-so-slightly).  This is two smooth coats; honestly, I don’t know how piCture pOlish does it.  The formula isn’t thick and yet it covers in two coats!!!!

(posed with an Ardene bracelet)

My husband, Peter, who is a photographer gets these photo-ideas that he has humorously coined “image blurbs”.  Well, I have had the “image blurb” for this manicure for a while now- I was just waiting on the perfect opportunity, and Tiffany was “it”:

* * *

I have never applied round studs in a row down the nail before, and I so wanted to try it with ‘animal print’.  Well, not only did I have the delicious Tiffany shade, but I also got some PUEEN bronze-gold round studs for review :D

(300 pieces retail for $6.69)

To create the studded look I spilled out a few of the studs onto a piece of paper and flipped them right-side-up (for easier pickup- which I do using a dotting tool dipped in clear polish).  I then painted two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff.  When the polish was still tacky I placed the studs into the polish.  I then painted a thick coat of topcoat on either side of the studs to secure them in place.

The animal print was done freehand with the exception of two hidden hearts which I transfered from Konad plate m78.  I added some complimentary gold detail with OPI Goldfinger.

piCture pOlish is an Australian brand and can be purchased online HERE (pssst, they ship internationally).  OR check out their International Network page for possible online resellers in YOUR country (for a direct link click HERE… did I mention that Harlow & Co carries loads of piCture pOlish shades?… Tiffany IS one of them!).

What do you think of Tiffany?

Do you get manicure “image blurbs”?  Do you ever wait with a manicure idea until you get just the right shade?

THANK YOU FOR READING!

    Hi Marta, I am smitten by your Skittelette!!! Absolutely beautiful. I own Tiffany as well and you worded its formula and beauty perfectly!!! I do have such blurbs – sometimes it is around a single accent nail that I try to “dress”, sometimes it is that I try to assort which look to which nail. Rarely it happens that I wait for a particular shade to arrive for a Skittelette, I think the last one was Honey Dew!!! Have a wonderful day

      Oh Honey Dew… I will be showing that one again this friday… I can’t get enough of these- they are soft shades but have some ‘neon’ elements to them- love love love!
      Thank you for sharing your image-blurb experiences :D

    Marta, stop creating these awesome manicures please. I am running out of drool. Sincerely – my dried out mouth.

    Really gorgeous! Am I crazy or do I see a little heart on your middle finger? Any way I love it.

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      not crazy ;) I did add a heart using a Konad plate ;)

  • Rachael Robinstein

    Fabulous! So classy and sassy! I must get my hands on some studs soon! I just noticed that you liked my Facebook page (The Nailinator) and I literally let out a yelp of excitement! :) I love your blog so much and you have been such an inspiration to me. Thanks so much! I hope you have a great day.

      Awh thank you for your kind comment.

      I must highly recommend these PUEEN studs- the inside of the stud is filled with this rubber-filling which helps the studs stay put…rather than being hollow like the studs of other brands. I wore them for 6 days and only lost one (picked it up and attached it again).

      I’m sorry I wasn’t a follower earlier- sometimes it is hard to find all the great blogs :D

  • Mina

    Yessss, I’ve had image blurbs! Lately I’ve been finding inspiration almost everywhere but then I go through my stash on my mind and ‘damn, don’t have that shade yet!’ hahah
    Glad you were able to pop one fo those image blurbs, because this is a fantastic look! Love the togetherness (is that a word?) of Tiffany (I hate PP – why do all their polishes need to be this great? WHY? ;)), with the animal print (that cut heart at the top is soooo cute!) and the delicate tiny rounded studs – overall, beautiful, gorgeous mani! :D **

    • Mina

      PS. got carried away and forgot to write – LOVE THE BRACELET! :D

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Oh yaay! High-five to image blurbs ;)
      Thank you! Thank you Thank you! I just took this manicure off- lasted over 6 days with literally no-minimal tipwear!
      PP is quite genius with their shades- even this polish is sooo much brighter IRL- it is a pastel-neon … if there ever was such a thing. I am so in love with their shades.
