Pink stripes on cream: Z is for: Zoya Zanna

It’s the end! This week is letter Z in the A to Z series challenge. I bought Zoya Zanna some weeks ago, specifically for this series of challenges. It was the only polish I could find beginning with a Z. I’m sure there are probably others, but once I’d found this one, I was happy. […] Read more

Leopard print: Y is for: You’re A Peach

I only have two polishes beginning with the letter Y: OPI Yodel Me On My Cell and Nails Inc You’re A Peach. And for the penultimate week in the A to Z series challenge I chose to use You’re A Peach and did some leopard nails. I’ve never really done leopard print nails before. I’ve […] Read more

Purple shimmer and creme with striping tape: W is for: Wild With Passion and Wine And Dine

It’s letter W this week in the A to Z series challenge. I couldn’t decide between two purple Ws, so I used them both to create a half and half manicure with some striping tape inthe middle. The cream on the top half of the nail is NYC Wild With Passion. It’s a red-toned purple, […] Read more

V is for: Vixen: pink with flower accent

For V this week in the A to Z series challenge I’ve used Vixen by Collection 2000. It’s a striking pink with a fuchsia shimmer. I paired it with the pale pink of No Excuses by George and created a dotted flowers accent nail. You may notice that my nails are really short. This is […] Read more

U is for: Unicorn Love

It’s letter U this week in the A to Z series challenge. I wanted to add some nail art, but didn’t get time in the end, so it’s just a swatch today from me. This is Unicorn Love, from Polish Addict Nail Colour. It’s a mint green – verging on a pale blue – with […] Read more

Blue wavy stencilled tips: T is for: Thinking of Blue and The Sky’s The Limit

For this week’s letter in the A to Z series challenge I’ve used two letter Ts, both by Sally Hansen: Thinking Of Blue, an inky, near navy blue, and The Sky’s The Limit, a bright mid blue. Rummaging around in my Helmer to find some studs or glequins to go on the dark blue I […] Read more

Purple and green duochrome with star studs: S is for Starlet

It’s letter S this week in the A to Z series challenge and I’ve gone for Startlet from Ciaté, to which I added some star studs as a nod to the polish’s name. I bought this polish along with about ten others in a buying frenzy at my local The Original Factory Shop. If you […] Read more

Red and gold harlequin nails: R is for Ruby Pumps

For letter R this week in the A to Z series challenge I chose Ruby Pumps from China Glaze. I don’t seem to have worn red on my nails in such a long time and I was yearning for it. Initially, I fished out a plain red China Glaze from my helmer, but sitting next […] Read more

Q is for: Queen Vic by Butter London, with round pink glitters

It’s letter Q this week in the A to Z series challenge and because I didn’t have a Q, I went out and bought one (nooorty me!) The first Q that I could find was Queen Vic from Butter London. I don’t have any other polishes by Butter London. They are so expensive (£10.50) and […] Read more
