Picture Polish ~ Kryptonite



Picture Polish ~ Kryptonite
Dark green jelly with scattered holo

Here’s another one of my beloved Picture Polishes, namely Kryptonite, which my friend Stinna gave me for my birthday. We’re in a birthday group together :) 

Kryptonite has a really nice formula, and this says a lot, coming from a girl who doesn’t work well with jellies. This applies easily and it covers well: Two coats and I was satisfied. The holo effect in this polish is spectacular. It looks as if the polish glows, even in low lights.

Here is a picture of two coats, no top coat:


It’s hard to capture this prettiness on cam but here’s another attempt:



I decided to do a bit of easy nail art on it. I used a striper from L. A. Colors called Quirky Turquoise. I made two striped on each nail, and the thumb got three. Then I dotted one or two dots on the stripes, and when that was dry I dotted on the dots with the Kryptonite. One layer of Poshé topcoat and my mani was done:


The pattern is more subtle in real life than it appears on the pictures here, but I really like it anyway!


Here’s the pretty couple:



As I said: I really love Picture Polish! Do you like the brand? Which do you have?


Opacity: 7/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 8/10
Value for money: 8/10

      I'm glad this shade looks good on me, because I like dark colours - as long as they're not totally black :)
