Today I’m showing you one of the newest colors from an Australian brand, Picture Polish. Hope is described as “a dark teal blue jelly holo (scattered) with a subtle smattering of cobalt glitter designed to come alive with a little shake of the bottle.”
With two coats, Hope was opaque and had a scattered holo effect. I used to work in a machine shop many years ago as an office manager, and Hope made me think of the small slivers of aluminum that would come off of the machines; I could see short but linear silver and holo particles in the polish. I did some blurry pictures to capture the effect; this isn’t a knock you out strong linear holo but a polish that has a nice somewhat understated sparkle to it.
And, yes, I took these the day after I painted my nails (to get some sun pictures) so there was a little bit of tip wear, but nothing dramatic. I really love the confetti look that this has to it.
If you don’t live in Australia and don’t want to place a huge Picture Polish order from overseas (maybe you should; they have some beautiful colors), Llarowe also stocks most of the collection, although Hope is currently not in stock. I don’t keep polish on for long at one time, but I have friends who absolutely swear by the longevity of Picture Polish. Perhaps its time for a wear test.
