Picture Polish ~ Hussy and Denim



Picture Polish ~ Hussy and Denim
- Lines

Today I’m practicing doing lines. Straight lines that it. It looks so easy, but it can be pretty damn tricky in my opinion. I used two polishes from Picture Polish to practice with: Hussy and Denim, and also an ordinary white striper polish from Claire’s.

Here’s the mani I ended up with:


I started out with two coats of Hussy, a lovely red-tone purple with scattered holo effect and flakies. I was thrilled to see it be opaque after the first coat! I applied a second coat to see if it made a difference, but it didn’t. So yes, Hussy is a one coater! ♥ Drying time is good too. Take a look at how amazing it looks:


And the little flakies come to life in lower lights, that’s a huge score!


First I made the vertical stripe with Denim. It’s a dusky blue with silver shimmer and it’s opaque enough to make nail art like this. Then I outlined those lines with white before I painted the horizontal blue lines and outlined those as well. I didn’t topcoat it.


I also love this I low lights!


Practice makes one hell of a difference, so I’ll definitely keep practicing. How do you think I did?


Number of coats: 2 (but 1 is enough)
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Scattered holo with flakies / shimmer
Overall impression: I love both of them, they’re great and beautiful polishes!
Buy again: Yes to both

    1. Thank you! :) It's true that we aren't surgeons, but sometimes it would be nice with a steadier hand :D

  3. Oh, I like this mani a lit - it's really beautiful!
    The trick about lines is not to think, have a relaxed wrist and not too much paint on the brush - nor too little... ;)

  4. You're really good at making lines, I'm sooo bad at that, maybe because I'm not practicing at it. ;-)

  5. Those a beautiful colours! There's a reason PP is one of my favourite brands! My trick to lines is luck. Some days I can kind of do it, other days it looks like a drunk monkey tried to do my nails.

  8. I've been there, for me painting a straight line is impossible... Though your mani looks great, good job! :)
