My First Picture Polish Haul!

Sunday, May 31, 2015 4 Comments A+ a-

My last haul this month! Geez, I bought lots of nail stuff this month, didn't I?! This time it's my first Picture Polish haul. I think I'm the last Aussie-living nail addict who shopped at Picture Polish, coz it's such a successful nail polish brand and everyone seems to have their polishes. I have a few nail friends recommending this brand, so I decided to finally place an order.

This is how my order went:

  • Paid: May 19th
  • Shipped: May 21st
  • Arrived: May 26th

It took only a week coming all the way from PP Headquarters in Queensland. Let's see what I've got!

今月最後のhaulポスト。今月は本当にいろんなもの買いましたね~。買い物記事準備するのに時間が取られてあまりネイルしている時間がありませんでした^_^; さて今回はPicture Polishでのお買い物。OZ住まいのネイル好きでPPのポリッシュ買ったことがなかった人なんて、きっと私ぐらいなもんでしょう。OZ発のネイルブランドで一番成功したブランドなんじゃないでしょうか。今回買い物に至った理由は1週間後ぐらいにネイルを1つ紹介するときに書きます。オーダーから到着まではこんな感じ。
  • 支払い : 5/19
  • 発送 : 5/21
  • 到着 : 5/26

This is what was in the packet. My pretties are in this damask pattern bag.


My order is carefully wrapped like this.


Tadaaah! My 8 pretties <3 

じゃじゃ~ん♡\(^o^)/ 今回8本買ってみました。

This is cyan, collaboration shade with Marta @ChitChatNails, and freya's cat, collaboration shade with @Nihrida.

最初の2本はMartaさん @ChitChatNails のコラボレーションポリッシュ「cyan」と @Nihridaさんのコラボレーションポリッシュ「freya's cat」。

Then, imperial, collaboration shade with @The Swatchaholish and eerie, collaboration shade with @Very Emily.

それから、@The Swatchaholishさんの「imperial」とEmilyさん @Very Emilyの「eerie」。

Next up, o'hara and pharaoh. This 'o'hara' is the reason for this order. You'll know why in about a week.

お次の2本は o'haraとpharaoh。この「o'hara」が今回の購入のきっかけとなったポリッシュ。理由は約1週間後に分かります。

Lastly, darcy and peel off glitter base. This is my first peel off glitter base! I will start wearing glitters now :D

最後の2本がdarcyとピールオフ グリッターベース。ちゃんとしたピールオフを買うのは初めてです。これでようやくグリッターもじゃんじゃか塗れます(゚∀゚)

Swatch on sticks. From left: cyan, freya's cats, imeprial, and eerie. All 3 coats, but you can get away with 2 thick coats for all of these. I was expecting 'eerie' to be sheer but was surprised that it has creamy texture, almost like A-England holos that glide like butter. 

スティックでのswatch。左から、cyan、freya's cats、imperial、eerie。すべて3度塗りですが、厚めに2度塗りでもいけると思います。eerieがシアーな感じかな?と想像していたのですが、意外や意外、A-Englandのホロのようなクリーミーなテキスチャーです。

Next 3. From left, o'hara, pharaoh, and darcy. 3 coats each. pharaoh is the sheerest, and you may need 4 coats to get fully opaque, but it has more holo flakies than the others.

残りの3本。左から o'hara、pharaoh、darcy。すべて3度塗り。pharaohが一番シアーで、4度塗りが必要かもしれませんが、一番ホロ粒子が多いのがこれ。

So 6 of these polishes (except imperial and glitter off base) are holographics. Their holographic shades are often compared with Dance Legend Wow Prism polishes that I adore. I find Dance Legends have more holo flakies than most of Picture Polish holos, and my thinking was that if I have to pay more than $10 for a bottle of polish, I would choose one with more holo sparkles. But then, there are times that DL holos are just so intense that when I use them as a base for nail art, their holo sparkles obscure the art on top, so I had to switch to other polishes. I think these Picture Polish shades are pretty on their own and make the great base for nail art as well. 

Overall, I'm so happy with my purchase. I can't wait to use them!

ということで、8本のうち6本(imperialとグリッターオフ以外)はすべてホロです。Picture Polishのホロラインは大好きなDance Legend Wow Prismと比較されることが多いようです。全体的な印象として、Dance Legendの方がPicture Polishよりホロ粒子が多めなので、ポリッシュ1本に10ドル以上払うなら「ホロ粒子が多い方買うよね」というのが正直なところだったのですが。たまにあるんです、DLのホロがあまりにも強烈過ぎて、その上にネイルアートを施したときにホロが眩しすぎてアートが目立たない・・・ということが。そんなときに、このPicture Polishのホロたちは単体でも綺麗だし、ネイルアートのベースとしても使えるんじゃないかと思ったのです。既にPPを使ったネイルは2つほど作りましたが、思った通りの働きをしてくれました。

今回のPicture Polishでの初購入、大満足です。すぐにまたオーダーしたいくらいですねw

Thanks Tina! Yeah shipping cost from Australia is ridiculous also :(( Even within Australia, normal parcel costs $7-8 but good thing is that wait time is minimum :)
