It's time for piCture pOlish Blog Fest!!!
I am so excited to be taking part in this fantastic nail community event as it is my first time!
Blog Fest has been going on for a few years now and features a TON of fab nail and beauty bloggers showing off fantastic piCture pOlish shades!
This year has a nail art theme - so let's check it out!
All three of these piCture pOlish shades were sent to me from the company for the purpose of using them in Blog Fest - we were also able to use black and/or white in our designs, which I took full advantage of!
I was sent Hot Lips, Sea Jewel and Peacock.
I'm sure it is purely coincidental, but I was pretty impressed with how the colors I was given totally matched my blog colors!
Sea Jewel is a gorgeous full coverage teal and silver glitterbomb that covers fully in 2 coats and dries very smooth.
Hot Lips is a neon pink that also covers full in 2-3 coats with no white undies necessary!
Peacock is a purple and teal jelly glitter that reaches full coverage in about 3 coats.
All of these had consistently perfect application (trust me on this as I used them MANY times while trying to perfect my nail art entry!)
Each entry this year must include a tutorial on how the nail art was achieved. For this tutorial I am going to break up the manicure pictures with insertions of each individual nails' tutorial - starting from pinky finger to index finger.
