piCture pOlish - Midnite Meteor & Freya’s Cats

Picture Polish "Midnite Meteor" from the “2014 Collaboration Series”. This shade was created with Cristina from DoBeauting and inspired by shooting stars in strong blue summer nights.


Color: Midnight blue with holo shimmer that dries smooth.



Application: Smooth and good coverage with just two coats.




Picture Polish "Freya's Cats" from the “2013 Collaboration Series”. This shade was created with Sasha from Nihrida and inspired by the Norse goddess Freyja, cats and well the color blue! 


Color: Electric Blue with holo shimmer.



Application: The polish applies smooth and has a jelly-like formula.


Since I am a little impatient and wanted to get more coverage with less coats, I used Orly’s “La Playa” as a base before adding 2 coats of “Freya’s Cats”.



Both of these colors are gorgeous!! 

Polishes purchased from Color4Nails“Freya’s Cats” $15 & “Midnite Meteor” $12.5

For the protection of your eyes, I have blurred my sad cuticles who did not enjoy this winter at all :( 

Happy Lacquering!

Esmaltes Da Kelly - House Targaryen

Esmaltes Da Kelly "House Targaryen" from the "GOT" Collection

Boldness amongst the delicate, just like Daenerys Targaryen; That is how I see this color. "House Targaryen" is a light blue with small specs of both glitter and mutiple tones of blue.


Application: The consistency of the nail polish is a little thick but still applies even. As with a lot of light colors it is a little sheer and to avoid several layers I used OPIs "Natural Nail Base Coat".


I purchased "House Targaryen" from Color4Nails for $7.

Thanks For Looking & Happy Lacquering!

Back for more lacquering!

Hi all!
I have been off the map for a while now, but my love for Nail Polish has remained.
What I am most thrilled about catching up on is the increased amount of indie nail polish brands and Picture Polish's Collaboration series. There are now even more creative polishes out there!!
To help me get back on track I have started to reorganize all of my nail polishes and assign a swatch stick for each one. The inspiration came from More Nail Polish's blogpost "How I organize my stash.". (I'll be doing a separate post on how that turns out.)
In the next couple of weeks I will be sharing with you all the goodies I got at Color4Nails !
  • Esmaltes Da Kelly "House Stark" from the "GOT" collection
  • Esmaltes Da Kelly "House Targaryen" from the "GOT" collection
  • A England "LC Saint George" from "The Legends" collection
  • Picture Polish "Unicorn" from the "Collaboration Series" (Created with Brit Nails)
  • Picture Polish "Midnite Meteor" from the "Collaboration Series" (Created with DoBeauting)
  • Picture Polish "Minty" from the "Collaboration Series" (Created with LaPailletteFrondeuse)
  • Picture Polish "Freya's Cats" from the "Collaboration Series" (Created with Nihrida)
Looking forward to seeing you around!
