piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013

Today I have for you Blog Fest 2013 hosted by piCture pOlish! Last year there was a reveal of wonderful collaboration shades of polish for the Blog Fest. This years Blog Fest theme is Year of the Blogger. This celebrates all the wonderful nail polish bloggers out there, what we do and a chance to show off our nail art. How awesome is that? The challenge for today is create the "most amazing nail art ever' with three polish provided by piCture pOlish

piCture pOlish sent me Aphrodisiac, which is a very dark purple, Splash a lovely blue multi shape glitter and Hot Lips a neon pink. Such different polishes, but all gorgeous in their own right. To make sure each polish would pop with the manicure I did a base of white and applied different nail art over the top. So how did I create the look below?

Thumb Nail Art- 2 coats of piCture pOlish hot lips with piCture pOlish Splash applied at the base of the nail and dragged upwards to the tip. A simple but very effective glitter gradient.

First Finger- White base with dot nail art using piCture pOlish Hot Lips and Aphrodisiac

I used grease proof paper and placed some polish on it. Using a dotting tool I placed dots on my nail in a J-shape on the white base, alternating the colors and sizes.

I painted 2 coats of piCture pOlish Splash on grease proof paper and when the polish was dried I cut it up into strips and placed it over a white base on my nail. Finished with a topcoat :)

This is kinda hard to show on the nail, but imagine it's my nail above. I painted white polish onto my nail, then dropped drops of piCture pOlish Hot Lips and Aphrodisiac placed on the white and whilst all polish was wet, dragging a design with a fine dotting tool as above.

 Little Finger- Stamping with piCture pOlish Aphrodisiac and accents of Splash dotted on.

I used Pueen stamping plate 38, the design very left in the above picture, and using piCture pOlish Aphrodisiac in the design I transferred this onto my nail. Then when the design dried I used my dotting tool to add accents of piCture pOlish Splash

The end result of a few nail art techniques and some awesome polish!

Blog Fest 2013 is happening all over the world, so keep an eye out for nail art with polish colors that you love. All designs will be posted to the piCture pOlish Pintrest Page and the one with the most 'likes' will be invited to create a collaboration shade, so make sure you head on over and like your faves :)

You can check out the other shades of lovely polish sold at the piCture pOlish website here. As I am in Australia, I was sent the polishes directly from piCture pOlish but other alternatives to get your hands on these polishes (especially for the international peeps) can be found at the piCture pOlish Network page here.
