Pink Scaled Gradient Zigzags: Z is for: Zigzags

We’re finally at the end of the A2Z series challenge. Twenty-six weeks after starting and we’re at Z, which is for zigzags. Wanting to do something a little different, I created some pink scaled gradient zigzags. I’ve not used the scaled gradient technique before. It’s an effective look, created I believe by Cristine of Simply […] Read more

OPI DS Lapis with Blue and Silver Chevrons: Y is for: You

It’s the penultimate challenge week in the A2Z series challenge. So, we’re at Y, which is for You. Well, not you … me. That’s how I interpreted it anyway. And I have done some blue with silver chevrons nails. I spent ages trying to think of what best represented me. I’ve done plenty of manicures […] Read more

Stamped Lace Nails: X is for: eXtra Special

I’ve chosen to create some stamped lace nails for X is for eXtra Special in the A2Z series challenge. I tried to think of things that were extra special, but couldn’t come up with much. I had a bit of a Google and checked out some manicures on Pinterest, but still failed to be inspired […] Read more

Pink, Purple and Blue Gradient Zebra Nails: W is for: Wild

I’m just about back on track and posting on the correct day for the A2Z series challenge. We’re at W, for wild, and I’ve created some pink, purple and blue gradient zebra nails. Bright gradient zebra is a style I’ve seen quite a lot, and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it in these colours too, […] Read more

Christian Louboutin Lova Stamped with Chanel Kaleidoscope: V is for: Valuable

I’m still behind in the A2Z series challenge, but I am catching up. For valuable, I’ve used Christian Louboutin Lova stamped with Chanel Kaleidoscope. These two polishes are amongst my most valuable. Christian Louboutin sells for £36 a bottle, and is the priciest polish I own. The polish I’ve stamped with is Chanel Kaleidoscope. This […] Read more

Barry M Full Throttle: U is for: Unusual

I’m a week behind in posting my A2Z series nails this time. But we went away rather spontaneously and spent a couple of nights staying in Wiltshire, and visiting Bath and Avebury. We had a lovely short break, which very much recharged my completely spent batteries. My son has been off school for the Easter […] Read more

Blue and Purple Textured Glitter Zigzags: T is for: Textured

I’ve used some textured glitter for T is for textured in the A2Z series challenge this week. Both polishes are from the 2true Sequins collection and are Eva, which is the blue one, and Naomi, the purple one. I have one other nail polish from this 5-part collection; it’s the silver one, called Christy. I’ve […] Read more

Silver with Red Diamond Stamping: S is for: Silver

I didn’t mange to post on time yesterday for the A2Z series challenge, and I’m a day late. It’s S this time, for silver. Firstly I painted my nails using W7 Silver Suede. This was given to be by my friend Michelle. She’s just got into painting her nails and has fallen hard, already setting […] Read more

Black and Green Recycle Logo: R is for: Recycle

I’ve left today’s A2Z series challenge manicure until the last minute as usual. This morning, a few of the others taking part in this challenge were talking about it and I realised the theme had been changed. I create the Inlinkz for this so you would think I would notice. But no. I was convinced […] Read more

Quirk Éponine over Barry M Vintage Violet: Q is for: Quirky

Q for quirky for the A2Z series challenge was a tough one. So I took the easy option and used a polish from Quirk. This is Éponine, made by Kerrie from Quirk Polish (and the blogger behind PishPosh & Polish). Sadly, she stopped making her indie polishes last year. It is a clear base with […] Read more
