A2Z Series - A Is For Angles

Greetings All!

I'm interrupting my Halloween manicures because I'm involved in a fabulous new challenge! Along with some very talented ladies - I'm a little bit intimidated about the level of nail art, but I'm hoping that will push me to step up my game a bit. You can see who is participating here, and when you see their nails, you'll understand why I'm worried!

We'll be posting every Thursday for the next 26 weeks. That seems like a long time, but I just know that very soon I'll be on 'Y' and wondering where all the time has gone! This week for 'A' the prompt is Angles. The prompts are fairly broad and there is a lot of room for interpretation, which is great because I think we'll be seeing a lot of variety. I went fairly obvious, and just painted some angles on my nails!

I originally planned to do all my nails like my middle finger, but I thought it might look a bit odd with my nail shape. It doesn't, which is slightly annoying, but I still like the random look.

My base is Look Nail Pop in Milk. It's a really nice off white, creamy colour, and much more wearable than a bright white. It's not the most exciting colour ever, but I was actually pretty excited by it, because I still can't bear to wear plain white polish and this is just soft enough to get away with. It makes a gorgeous base for all kinds of nail art.

I used striping tape, Barry M Gelly in Blood Orange and W7 Black for the angular bits. I'm determined to master striping tape! I don't think I did too badly this time - I got fairly clean lines, and these colours are not very forgiving!

You can check out the rest of this week's manicures, and all the nails throughout the challenge here. I'll be back tomorrow with several Halloween manicures!!


  1. This is a brilliant manicure - lovely angles! Great use of the colours. :)

  2. I don't think you should be worried - this looks great :)

  3. These are my type of nails!! I want them on my nails now

  4. These are just perfect. I love the colour combination and the different looks on each nail. I'm also really loving your new nail shape.


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
