piCture pOlish blog fest - Denim

| |

Hello to you all.
Special post today!
Today 25 july is the "piCture pOlish blog fest" all around the (nailpolish) world :>>>

Let me explain: today you'll find several piCture pOlish shades posted by various nailbloggers from all countries.
Post after post, swatches will all be published in the piCture pOlish Facebook page, all the same day!

Girls at piCture pOlish (thank you again!) kindly offered to some nailbloggers to review a surprise shade, I accepted and they send me... "Denim"! (a blue, what a coincidence :D)

You already can see from the picture above it looks like liquified denim in a bottle!
I put it on a jeans pair of mine to show how well they succeded in replicate the denim texture and making an original shade at the same time!

Infact, modern classic denim fabric is a mix of blue and white, and the particular weaving (plus a little stress given by the washing machine and other treatments) gives it a lot of depth, shades of blue and structure.

PiCture pOlish's "Denim" has a stonewashed blue base, little irregular white/silver chunkies and a sligtly duochrome reflect, which lean from lavender to violet.
AMAZING.

(daylight)

These are two coats (plus some touch-ups) with no top coat, to show you how nice is it on its own: not too glossy, not too matte, resembling a gritty surface (but it's all smooth), just like a REAL piece of jean!

(in the sun)

It sparkles when put in sunlight, but not too much, just the right amount of little refractions!

Picture above show you the duochrome side, the colour of sparkles and the little silver flakies, I love how they look against the blue base.

Formula is pretty thick, not runny, covers well with two generous coats.
Clean-up it's a little tricky, due to the glitters, and I'd prefer a flat brush instead of the classic rounded one you'll find in this polish, but it's not a great deal, cap is rubberized (♥) and polish dries very FAST, so it won't take you forever to apply this shade.

"Denim" is featured in their Glitter shades section, bottle is 11ml and price it's AU$ 9,90: great price for such an original colour!
Like the majority of you, I wouldn't spend a big bunch of money on a nailpolish, but how many times did you read about a "denim" collection and what you had was just a plain blue varnish? I really appreciate when brands try something new and hit the nail, and that's why in the past I bought two other shades from them, I found quality and ideas behind their products :>


Dear readers, if Girls from piCture pOlish will like my review, it'll be a GREAT chance for you all to win... No, I'm not going to say anything more about it, just wait for some days and hopefully I will let you know well about this opportunity :P
Otherwise, I'm sure other bloggers involved in this project will write all the complete info about it, but I like keeping things a little misterious :D


Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)


(this nailpolish was sent to me directly from manufacturer for review purposes; I'm not paid and blablabla)

I don't like to spend a lot of money on a single beauty product, but when you come across a colour that has something special like this one, I think the extra bucks/euros is worth it.

You'd really love it, Nihirida :>

Hi Jeeya, I think it's an elegant shade of blue, and with wearable glitters too!

Yeah, marox, I know you are like me in such things ;>
