ABC Challenge: "X"

So this is the letter I was dreading for the Alphabet Challenge.  I don't have any polishes that start with the letter X.  Is there such a thing even?  Then I thought, I'm going to take the easy way out.  I had picked an Xtreme (starts with X) Wear by Sally Hansen polish called Pink Satin.  Then, I thought..well heck...I could get out my striping tape and do an X on one of my nails!!!  For some reason I picked my middle finger to do this "accent" on.  Maybe subconsciously I was thinking...middle finger to you, letter X!!!

I gotta be honest, this is by far my finest work.  The color I put over my X was Essie No Place like Chrome and for whatever reason, it just didn't apply smoothly.  I have yet to try this polish on it's own but I doubt the formula is bad.  I do like the color combo but the actual outcome did not come out how I would have liked.

If I wasn't doing this challenge, I most likely wouldn't even post this.  I have many manicures that I've done that I intend to post but end up not doing so for reasons just like this!  I'm not big on editing my photos.  The most I do is crop and watermark.  So, here is is in all it's glory!

Only two more letters left for next week.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. OMG, I almost used an Xtreme Wear polish! AND, I was thinking I wish I had striping tape so I could do the x. Great minds think alike! This looks so cool. Great job on the "nail art" :)

  2. Ooh awesome!!! I can't believe I didn't think of that!! I made adjustments to my x polish too, who the hell names their polishes starting with an x anyway?? ;)

  3. Haha, I was totally going to use an Xtreme Wear, too! This looks great and it's just as nice to see a real, unedited picture of what someone's nails look like as it is to see a "perfect" photoshopped picture. We've all got our own things, you know? Anyhoo, I'm glad you posted this, it looks great and that pink is goreous. <3
