A to Z: P is for Pistache & Parakeet

Hello friends! Today I have another installment of the A To Z Blog Series. This week we are on the letter P. I have close to 50 nail polishes beginning with P, so my decision for this week's post was really not easy! I got there in the end though, so let's have a look!

I chose two Ps for this week, Sinful Colors "Pistache", a lovely pastel lime green creme with a really nice formula, and Invogue "Parakeet" feather effect polish, a clear base with pastel blue, yellow, and peach matte strands.

Here is Sinful Colors "Pistache" on its own, two coats, no top coat:

And here is Pistache with one coat of Invogue "Parakeet", and top coat:

Then I did some impromptu stamping! As Parakeet is (obviously) named after a bird, I decided to stamp a feathery design from  MoYou Mother Nature Landscape plate 02 using my cheapie black polish which is just amazing for stamping, and finished with top coat:

What do you think? I love birds, so it goes without saying that I love this manicure, even if I do say so myself :)

Now it's time for MamaBean's contribution! She used Barry M "Princess", a sparkly pink textured polish. She applied two coats with no top coat:

Hasn't she done a lovely job?

Don't forget to check out the A To Z Blog Series Hub Page to see what everybody else has chosen for the letter P, and come back next week for another installment.

Thanks for reading :) x
