Picture Polish “Pooh” Swatch and Review

I was quite intrigued by this colour while browsing Picture Polish’s website. “Pooh” is described as a “honey mustard holographic nail polish with holo flakes and will dry smooth on nails.” Kelli Marissa describes it as a “pretty ugly” colour. I like the colour mustard (hate the taste of the condiment itself), love holo, so I thought why not give this shade of polish a go? I tried it on right away shortly after receiving it in the mail, I just had to kill my curiosity with this colour!

  • Base Coat: Mystery base I picked up from a shop – it’s a transparent green base?
  • Colour: Picture Polish “Pooh”
  • Top Coat: Holo Taco Glossy Top Coat

I needed about 3 coats to cover some nail line but it is still not fully opaque on me – could be that my nails are longer than what the recommended coating is. The first coat was quite questionable because I couldn’t help but feel like my nails looked like they had an infection. But as the coats layered, it looked a lot better.

The colour is indeed a honey mustard yellow and the holo does show through in certain lighting. I’ve sent these photos to a few friends, and got a few opinions

  • 💩🐻
  • A fine line between cute and infection
  • A happy yellow, but not one that seems wearable on skin with yellow undertone.

My opinion: I like it the more I stare at it, but then sometimes I reconsider. I’m just very confused how to feel lol. It could very well be that I like the colour, just not on me! Perhaps I’d prefer a pastel mustard. Or maybe it’s more of a summery shade. Who knows. All I know is that Picture Polish’s “Pooh” nail polish is making me feel all sorts of ways!

Hope you enjoyed this short and sweet post!
