OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 7.Holo

I’m incredibly lucky that Black Sheep Lacquer recently sent me some beautiful nail polish to swatch. As far as I’m aware, this shade is not named yet and not listed either [edit : Margarita Monster can now be purchased here], but it is just so stunning I couldn’t resist showcasing it for holo day 🙂

It’s a super smooth gelly, a little sheer, but it dries so fast, it’s not a big deal to have to layer a bit! Here’s a swatch :


No top coat here – it is sooo shiny. And just because, honestly, I don’t even know how this polish could be improved upon by nail art, I kept it very very simple :

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 5. Skittles

I’m really enjoying seeing all of your amazing entries for this challenge !

Today, I chose a similar colour scheme to Polish Alcoholic – not deliberate, since I prepared this mani last weekend ! But I guess that means that it’s true that great minds think alike 😉


I used – from left to right – Kerfuffle, Fruit Machine, Molly Coddled – from the Butter London Sweetie Shop collection from this spring, plus Sprog for the periwinkle blue on my index (some people say pointer) finger  and Fiver on my thumb – then a bit of stamping in white. I kicked myself when I realised I hadn’t cleaned my plate properly last time, but actually, it adds an interesting 3D effect, I guess (trying to look on the bright side here, don’t start!).


I just love this very summery mani ! What do you think?


I can’t wait to see yours !
