Picture Polish Week: Peacock

This one went to and fro my shopping basket a couple of times. Why I gave in? I have no clue - but am glad I did ;-)

I did some brain racking and Helmer digging to come up with an appropriate base colour. Again Colorama Africa A Vista Noite Africana:

The two of them again made an excellent pair. On the pictures I wear one coat of Picture Polish Peacock over one coat of Colorama Africa A Vista Noite Africana. Except for my pinkie wear I applied three coats of Picture Polish Peacock on its own.

Frankly, I like Peacock best worn on its own. I used Essence XXL Nail Thickener as Base Coat and applied a generous coat of Ciate Speed Coat to get a glossy and shiny surface.

You can order Picture Polish through their own website, Llarowe, Harlow & Co and Pshiit Boutique (and I am sure some more, but I am not aware of them but the ones I mentioned ship internationally).

Have you also recently bought a polish that previously went a couple of times in and out of your shopping basket?

Looking forward to reading your comments!!!

Thanks for reading!!


  1. Hi Christine! What a wonderful colour from picture polish, I like both versions, but like you I prefer it by itself (less blue). And of course I have recently bought, after hesitating several times, like you said, it was Essie butler please. Haven't tried it yet, and still wondering why i bought this one. i thought I don't have enough blues (?) lol

    1. Hi Natalia, thank you so much for your nice comment. I have not yet bought any of the new Essies :-( I am sure you do wonderful manis with Butler Please and don't bother, one can never have enough Blues ;-)
