piCture pOlish #ManiMonday x The Digit-al Dozen: O'Hara - Swatches, Review, and Punky Holiday Nail Art


Sadly, today is my last piCture pOlish #ManiMonday! AND because it's the second week of December it's also The Digit-al Dozen time again so today features a mash-up of red, gold green nail art for DD + piCture pOlish #maniMonday. I saved a really beautiful 'classic' color for last - the majestic O'Hara. O'Hara is a red jelly base with holographic and pink shard pieces in the mix. I only needed two coats for it to be opaque, which I think it pretty freaking awesome. Then I did some punky holiday nail art. Check 'em out!

Seriously. Two coats. So pretty. So amazing. On my nails O'Hara is a little more pink-red than in the bottle (almost seems a wee bit coral?). I really like the flat piCture pOlish brush - makes it very easy to paint, and it's not too terribly wide so I don't paint all over my hands. And of course I really love the flakie bits - it's my favorite PP finish! I love the way they catch the light.

Then I did some sort of punky-edgy holiday nails! I'm not feeling super in the holiday spirit because, well, I live in Miami now and I'm still wearing tank tops and shorts and sunblock every day. BUT in the end I am really happy with these nails because I love the mix of festiveness and larger scale studs. Unfortunately I sort of struggled with getting the art to look great on camera, but I LOVE THESE in person :)

Using the Chalkboard Nails 'distressed' nail art tutorial I did a grungy texture on my ring finger. Green and red are complimentary colors, and especially with polishes they mix to mostly make 'dark blah' - only adding to the grunge. I used piCture pOlish Mallard (press sample) (see the full post about this polish here) and two different gold polishes (one smooth and one particle-y foil). Then I did a quick plaid freehand on my middle nail, also using Mallard and a gold foil.

    1. THANKS Lindsey!! It's a pretty fantastic red polish, especially if you don't have a lot of reds because the holo shards make it a little more fun. I don't have a TON of red polishes so I find this to be rather unique to my stash AND it's opaque at 2 coats :D :D

  3. It looks really great, also with the nail art. It was on my wish list, just until you mentioned coral. I can't wear anything coral :/

    1. Thank you!! Sorry to hear about the coral thing. I think the photos in the post are pretty color accurate; does it look coral to you?! It reminds me a lot of maraschino cherries - like a pinky-red candy color.
