Black Lace

Polishing late at night for no reason other than it's a weekend and because I can :)  We're watching "The Wrestler" while I finish catching my blog up to the present day.


Today I have tried out a polish from the new Zoya Feel collection, "Avery".  I bought the whole Feel collection after seeing them on a few notable bloggers swatch posts (thanks Scrangie, Vampy Varnish and The Polishaholic) and liking most of the colours.  However I think Avery is a tad too yellow for my liking and I should have used my Nubar "Classic Camel" as a nude base instead.  Next time!


I saw this design on a blog but it turned out to be a nail sticker which I thought I could recreate freehand.  I've not recreated it faithfully but the general idea was a circular diagonal french with dotty trim that looked like it was lace.  I hope you like it!

  4. Thank you :) I was actually trying to recreate this look by another blogger which turned out to be a nail sticker and not freehand:

    My attempt is not identical but I love it too. I can see myself wearing this again but perhaps not with the Zoya base, maybe Nubar Classic Camel next time.
