A 2 Z: A is for Angles!

Yyyyeeeeaaaahhhhhh new blog series, folks!! As with the previous series, this is also based on the alphabet, but with a difference: instead of polishes beginning with each letter of the alphabet, we will be following a different prompt beginning with letters of the alphabet - again, one per week. Before we go any further, why don't you check out Charlie's "Meet The Bloggers" post to acquaint yourself with everybody taking part this time?

Now, A is for "angles", so let's do this thing!

I started with a base of Barry M Gold Foil Effects Nail Paint (one coat):

Then, using striping tape and more patience than I ever thought myself capable of, I blocked off squares and painted them in with two colours: Nails Inc "Villiers Street" and Nails Inc "Upper Brook Street", and finished with matte top coat. I got carried away and forgot to photograph each stage of the process, so here is the finished look!

As you can see, I made a little mess on a few nails, mainly because I didn't wait long enough for the colours to dry before I put my tape on! But apart from that, I am really pleased with it :)

Now for mama Bean! She used two different shades of green and stamped an image from Pueen plate 20:

We have a new Hub Page for this series where you will see everybody else's contributions, so click here to view it, and come back next week to see the next instalment!
