piCture pOlish ~ Ariel’s Tail


piCture pOlish  ~ Ariel’s Tail
Various sizes of mermaid green glitter in a clear base

This is a polish that can’t be built up to full opacity; it definitely needs some underwear. Mermaids are green and purple in my world, so I decided for a green and purple gradient. I used Spoiled “Distant Memory” for the green, and Essie “Sexy Divide” as the purple.

Then I applied a layer of Ariel’s Tail. This glitter spreads out easily and without me having to dap the brush around to spread it out. That’s nice and something I really appreciate in a glitter.

It dried super fast, and totally flat. No grittiness or bumpiness or anything. This would definitely have worked without a top coat. That’s really nice too.


The pics are with one layer of Poshé top coat though, just for the hell of it :D


Here are all the polishes together: 


And here is the underwear on its own: 


Here’s what piCture pOlish write about their polishes:
piCture pOlish was created when two Australian girls dreamed of a beautiful gift that would capture a special occasion! What better way to relive a moment than wit a personalised nail polish! That is quirky & vibrant that stands out from the rest!
piCture pOlish has grown to include our own brand! With an extensive range of fashion forward colours you will find a shade for every occasion! Every Shade tells a story inspired by you our wonderful costumers!

Overall I'm a big fan of glitter. I use glitter in a lot of my manis because I think it's really pretty. This particular glitter is of a great quality, it looks lovely on the nails, and it's two huge pluses that it is easy to spread out and that the drying time is super fast. Ariel's Tale gets thumbs up from me!
