A to Z: O is for "Oxford Circus"

Hello friends! Another Thursday, another A to Z post! This week we are on the letter O. I have gone for something cute and girly today, shall we have a look?

I chose Nails Inc "Oxford Circus", a slightly blue-toned candy-pink creme polish. This was one of the very first Nails Inc polishes I bought back when I first discovered the true joys of nail polish. The formula is slightly chalky and streaky due to there being a lot of white in the base, but once you learn to adapt to its nuances it is easy to work with. Here are two coats (no top coat):

And then, using China Glaze "Re-Fresh Mint", I added some dots (using a dotting tool), and finished with top coat:

Now for MamaBean's O manicure! She didn't have any work-appropriate shades beginning with O so she borrowed Barry M "Olive" from my stash and added a layer of China Glaze "Golden Enchantment" for a bit of subtle sparkle:

I hope you have enjoyed our contributions for the letter O! Check out the A to Z Blog Series hub page to see what everybody else has done, and come back again next week for another installment!

Thanks for reading :) x
