ABC Blog Challenge: "G" and "H"

Today for the Alphabet Challenge I decided to combine letters.  I used Zoya Harley for my "H" which is a shimmery gray that almost leans the slightest bit of purple.  Zoya describes it as a "light concrete gray base with subtle flecks of silver, gold and copper shimmer."  I don't really see any copper but I also am not the best when it comes to describing colors.  I did a glitter accent nail with Icing's Glitteratti which is my "G".  This is a a polish that is just packed with glitter.  It has larger pink hex glitter and has smaller pink, gold, green and blue glitter in it.  I used two coats of this on my ring finger in the photos below.  I was pleasantly surprised that this glitter actually laid on the nail pretty nicely.


  1. That is a really nice glitter. I always wonder with like Claire's or Icing if the glitter will end up being really sparse. I have a few that I got for my 5 year old for Christmas and you get like 2 pieces of glitter per nail. It's good to know that this was packed with glitter. I may need to check that one out!

    1. I hate when that happens! I think it is a very hit or miss brand. I picked up 3 others and haven't tried them yet. The good thing about them is they are pretty reasonably priced. I highly recommend opening them before you buy! I had a couple that I had to run under hot water to open and they were all gunked up!

  2. That's a great combo!!! I haven't tried my Harley yet and I really like how you spiced it up with glitter!! Very nice!

  3. I love this combo! I have never used Icing's polish before but that purple is gorgeous.

  4. Harley is so pretty! It looks a little bridal to me. Nice combo of grey and purple, too.

  5. Amy just wanted you to know that I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award!

  6. Seeing your post I seriously need Harley!
    It's super gorgeous!!!
    And the glitter looks WONDERFUL as an accent! I love this mani!!!
