A - All About You

Now I've extended my collection once more (see previous post), I'm finally ready to take this challenge.
It's known as the ABC-challenge, originally run and done by so many talented bloggers I'm not able to even name them all here. But the idea is simple: on the first day you post a polish with a name beginning with the letter A, on the second one that begins with the letter B, and so on. I think you got the idea..
My first polish, the A, is Sinful Colors All About You.  It's a mix of the finest gold and a bit bigger copper glitters in a clear base. It looks gorgeus on the bottle, and I think I've used it once until now. Shame on me....
The base here is one coat (!) of Essence Colour&go Nude it! This is definitely my new go-to nude polish! I'll run to buy a reserve bottle..
I taped my nails with some regular magic tape, and applied three coats of Sinful Colors All About You to all fingers except the ring fingers. That one got a coat of Barry M Croc Effect (which took me ages to master...). A coat of Seche Vite to all, and I was ready to go. And off I went - sorry about the tipwear...
I won't be posting daily, but I'll try to get to the end of the alphabet sometime in January. There will surely be some non-challenge posts I'll just have to publish, but otherwise you know what to expect.


  1. Wow, I really, really love the effect of the gold blocked next to the croc finish! I absolutely need to give this a try. It seriously looks fabulous. :D

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge!

  2. Thanks, Elizabeth! I did have some problems with the croc finish shrinking when it dried, but it didn't end up looking too bad after all.
    Only the rest of the alphabet to go... :)
