piCture pOlish Leggings & Super Styling - A Different Way to Wear Them

Recently luck came my way and I was fortunate enough to be selected as the winner of piCture pOlish's Facebook giveaway for their new limited edition leggings and accompanying polish!

I had been going back and forth about purchasing them myself, but with the wedding coming up in just one month, I had to give them a pass. So as you can imagine, I was incredibly excited when piCture pOlish contacted me and let me know that I had won!

I impatiently kept track of the shipment and when they finally arrived, I loved the leggings even more than I thought I could. But the problem was that I couldn't actually see myself wearing them out and about because they just seemed too special to me! So I had a stroke of brilliance (ok maybe not brilliance, but I liked the idea) and decided to make the leggings/polish duo a piece of art in my nail room!


Lots more photos after the jump!

My brilliant idea was to display the leggings and polish in a shadowbox in my nail room. I thought that in a room dedicated to nails and nail polish, a pair of nail polish leggings would just look so freaking cool. Plus, I knew it would make a really awesome conversation piece for when I have clients here.

So, I headed to Michael's to check out their selection of shadowboxes. I was in luck - all shadowboxes happened to be on sale for 40% off! It was obviously meant to be. On top of that, I had a 15% off coupon, so I got a set of two really nice shadowboxes for under $15. Can't go wrong with that! I didn't even need two, but I'm sure I'll find some use for the second one.

Anyways, before I show you how beautiful the leggings and polish look hung up in my nail room, I'll of course show you how they look actually on! First up is picture pOlish Super Styling, the polish that comes with the leggings.


Super Styling is a really pretty sapphire blue foil-y glitter. I said foil-y because the glitter is so small and densely packed in the jelly base that it gives the polish a real foil like finish when on. The formula was really great - sheer on the first coat but perfect after the second coat.



And now onto the leggings! It was difficult getting these photos and I had to do so in my kitchen, so please forgive the door in the background and the shadows created by the flash. I wish I could have done this in my little lightbox, hah.


The leggings are of high quality and are super comfortable. They're very stretchy and also very soft to the touch. The bottoms are gathered, which I think makes them more flattering than a straight-legged bottom.

They're available in 3 sizes - Petite (aka: small), Everyday (aka: medium) and Snugly (aka: large). I got mine in Snugly. I suggest that before ordering you take a look at the piCture pOlish website where they have a full breakdown of the sizes and their respective measurements.





And finally, here's what the leggings and polish looks like now that I have them hanging in my nail room.





I've posted full photos of my nail room here in case any of you are interested.

All in all, I can easily say that these leggings are my favourite piCture pOlish product. So far anyways. ;)
Basically, if you're a nail polish fanatic, these are definitely a product you need in your life, whether it's to wear them or to use them as a form of artwork in your home!

The piCture pOlish Leggings and Super Styling Duo are available via the piCture pOlish website for AU$89. They're also available for pre-order from Harlow & Co. for CAD$95 including shipping.

Thanks for stopping by!
