…. I have been wondering FOREVER what Picture Polish Beige and Nude would be like if seen next to each other. So first up Picture Polish Nude - I call it a lingerie nude but for the records it is a nude with a peach undertone, if that makes any sense, oh and it is a jelly
I applied three coats of Picture Polish Nude over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula is - ehem - not the easiest to work with. It is thin and applies streaky and patchy (due to being a jelly and being lowly pigmented). I had to do three careful coats and absolute no painting twice over the same area to achieve the above result. Dry time is so-so but look at this high shine…..
Summary: Throw jelly and nude pigments in a pot and you have the perfect polish-challenge. I think this is one of the hardest shades to mix, well yellow certainly is harder but a nude jelly is close. However, I love the lingerie color and a perfect shade to implement in a Skittelette or adorn it with studs or….
Next up Picture Polish Beige which is crelly and has some grey undertones in it.
I applied two coats of Picture Polish Beige over my regular Base Coat. Application was great, though please consider that this is a crelly, I still recommend a light hand for painting and not going over the same area twice despite Beige being a lot more forgiving than Nude. Dry time was also quicker and the finish is the same high shine.
Summary: Formula-wise Beige is my favorite. It is actually a fabulous crelly consistency. Colorwise I find Nude more flattering next to my skin tone - still both of them fit well into my gap of nude polishes.
And on to the comparison:
Pinkie and middle: 2 coats of Picture Polish Beige, ring and index: 3 coats of Picture Polish Nude. The difference between the two polishes is more visible in my indoor photo. Outdoors they look very, very, very similar.
Final thoughts: Application wise I certainly prefer Beige, color-wise Beige is closer to a nude look then, well Nude. Both of them are great basics that offer a variety of nail art options and even for a nail art klutz like me there are still studs, nail tattoos, stripes or a funky French and of course GLITTAAAR!!!
I ordered Picture Polish Beige and Picture Polish Nude with Pshiiit Boutiqe.
