Recently I purchased piCture pOlish Hope from Llarowe. piCture pOlish is an Australian brand. It was created by two girls that desired a gift to capture a special occasion. In 2012 piCture pOlish was awarded the exclusive licensing rights plus shade creation of the Ozotic brand worldwide Ozotic NEW Sugar, Beam and Scatter Chrome and Mr Big.
piCture pOlish is cruelty-free.

Hope was created with Be from Vernis en Folie. Her Inspiration: The impending birth of her little girl in 2013 (she has now arrived so cute)
Hope is a dark teal blue jelly holo (scattered) with a subtle smattering of cobalt glitter design to come alive with a little shake.
It’s rare for me to paint my nails all one color, but I really love this color.
Shown above is:
Base – Cult Nails Get it On Base Coat
Hope – 1 coat
Top – Cult Nails Wicked Fast Top Coat
I really love this deep teal blue shade. The scattered holo effect is stunning. I love that it’s dark, yet it’s easy to tell that it’s a blue.
I liked the formula and found it easy to apply. You can certainly get away with one coat like I did, which shows off the jelly formula, or you could use two. It does take a bit of effort to get the cobalt glitter onto the nails.
I’m always a fan of scattered holos. This one is beautiful. If you like jellys or holos, you should check this one out.
A note about ordering from Llarowe. I’ve had a mixed bag with their service. I’ve ordered a total of four times. Twice now that I’ve ordered, I’ve purchased products that they later notified me went on back order. One polish was on back order for over 2 months before I finally cancelled it. I tried contacting Llarowe repeatedly for help on the order, and found it difficult to get help from their customer service. One person was completely unhelpful. Another was very nice. All I wanted was to know when my polish would ship, which seemed difficult for their customer service to answer.
I dislike how Llarowe’s system shows all items as shipped, even if an item is on backorder. That said, they have a nice selection of polishes, and they did apologize for the two backorders and said it was very unusual for that to happen.
Regardless of where you buy your piCture pOlish, I highly recommend them! I love the ones that I own so far.
