This was incredibly tough for me. I don’t even know why and for a moment there I even debated not posting a look for this day of the challenge. But I don’t want to give in that easily. 😉
Here’s my entry for Day 5 – Coloured Base with Black.
I painted my nails with the utterly gorgeous Orly Emberstone (this was my third time wearing this polish, which is a Big Deal).
The orange and pink sparkles! 😀 There’s really nothing I don’t love about this polish.
Then, I taped my nails and added French tips using China Glaze’s Liquid Leather. Side note — I need a better black creme. The two coats here made ripping off the tape messy and it bled. Hence my apprehension about posting this.
Then I added a matte top coat, which made Emberstone look even more interesting for me. 🙂
I do hope the next day will prove easier, though! 😉

If it feels like I haven’t done a pink Wednesday in forever, then it’s probably because I haven’t. 😉
So, here is one. I updated my mani of Barry M’s Fuchsia with a taped triangle in Wild and Crazy’s Anchorage — a perfect light gray one coater with silver micro glitter, yum! — and added a black rhinestone. I loooove those black rhinestones and I’ve had them forever, but this was my first time trying them out.
I know this is the day that’s all about pink, but look at Anchorage! It was among my first polishes and probably the cheapest I own 😮 but for me, it’s utter gray perfection. 🙂
This mani is from a week ago, I think. I wanted to do a holo mani in two colours and went with Catherine Arley No 801 (a green holo) and Teeez Smooth (a pink holo) and some tape to create a sort of watermelon-y effect.
