Four Weeks of piCture pOlish: Week One, Art Nouveau With piCture pOlish Flirt

Hi everyone! You may have noticed how many bloggers have been posting swatches or nail art once a week using shades from Australian brand piCture pOlish. I'm very happy to let you know I'll be participating, so for the next four weeks expect to see some (hopefully) unique nail art using a different polish each week. My goal is to let the individual polish and colour inspire my nail art design, and it would be really cool if this leads to some interesting designs!

But first let's take a look at piCture pOlish Flirt, which looks like your standard hot pink/fuchsia creme in the bottle, but on the nail is so much more...

piCture pOlish Flirt



About this polish: Flirt, like I said is a hot pink/fuchsia creme. I didn't do a complete swatch with this one, but in applying it on my accent nail, I can tell you the formula is amazing - it goes on so smooth and effortlessly, is completely self-leveling, and is very opaque. In fact this is almost a one coater, and I applied two just out of habit. I also love how flattering and gorgeous the colour is. It's not too bright but not at all dull.

About this design: If the design looks familiar it should - you might remember my Art Nouveau design from the Digit-al Dozen black and white week. You might also remember that I wasn't too happy with the design, but a few of you mentioned I might like it with some colour. So I decided to revisit the design with more colour - but still a very limited palette so I could focus on the design elements and the line. Also Jolène from Follow Gashin suggested a brown-toned palette so I took her up on her suggestion, although it's hard to tell in these photos.

I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff, and piCture pOlish Flirt. The lines were done with black polish mixed with OPI You Don't Know Jacques! to create a brown-black. Then it was just a matter of sketching in my designs and refining them until I had the design I wanted. I also tried to keep the sketchy look of my original design that people liked so much.

So what do you think of this design? Do you like it less or more than the original Art Nouveau design of mine?

  3. Love it! Looks great with color. And the middle nail looks like Snow White. Not sure if it was intentional but it looks awesome. :)

    1. Haha, it was not intentional, but I see how you can make that connection.

      And thank you Toria! :)

  4. This one is gorgeous. Flirt is a great color, and I love how you used it to accentuate the design, rather than letting it completely take over. Nice work!
