Zoya 'Cole'

Today I have a simple manicure to share. This is Zoya's 'Cole':

Swatch of Zoya 'Cole'

This is a warm, peach pastel shade which is perfect for springtime. I really like how soft and pretty  this colour looks. I really enjoyed wearing it!  I also think it would look nice with a little bit of gold stamping as an accent.

Adjacent Color Scheme Skittles Mani (Blueprint only)

Today I have the blueprint of a manicure to share, but not the manicure itself.  Sadly, I didn't get to take a picture of the actual manicure, however I did get a picture of the polishes that I used.

What happened? Well, I did my manicure, and then took a picture of the polishes that I used so that I could put the polishes away. I was planning to take a picture of my manicure later, after I had done some clean up on my cuticles. Unfortunately, I never got around to taking the picture! I figured I'd put the polish picture up anyways because one of the main reasons for this blog has always been to keep track of my various manicure ideas and looks, as well as to share the results. Unfortunately, I don't have the results for this post, but it was still a pretty good idea that turned out well, so I figure that it's worth noting.

Anyways, it was a skittles mani created with the following polishes (in the same order from thumb to pinky):

The polishes I used were: OPI 'Ski Teal we Drop', Zoya 'Meg', Zoya 'Elphie' (PixieDust), Zoya 'Ryan' and Zoya 'Waverly' (PixieDust). I quite liked how the colours looked together, and I remember being really taken with how lovely the textured polishes, Elphie and Waverly, looked. I only wear textured polishes occasionally, so it was a nice change for me.

Pink Nails!

Today's post is another where I forgot to keep track of exactly which polish I've used!  It's from the L'Oréal Paris Vernis a l'Huile line of polishes, and I think that it is most likely the shade called 'Rose Bouquet', but again, I'm not completely sure.

Whatever the shade name is, it's really pretty! If I'm able to confirm the name at a later time, I'll come back and edit this post.

One day I would like to do a detailed post reviewing and swatching the polishes that I have from this line.  I tried this line of polishes for the first time last year, and I quite like them. I did a post on another shade, 'Rubis Folies' earlier

Gold Glitter Mani

Today I have a really simple glitter manicure to share. The manicure was done with Sally Hansen Gem Crush nail polish in 'Big Money'.

I've had this polish sitting around in my stash for years. I used a little bit on my accent nail for my Neutral Mani, but this is the first time that I've used it for a full manicure. It has neutral gold glitter particles paired with slightly larger soft pink/lavender metallic glitter particles. It's truly quite pretty. The close up shot of my thumbnail below really captures the individual glitters that make up the mix.
