The ABCs: Y for Y U NO…

I don’t know about you, but I for one am really happy this ABC series is nearing the end! Because when I was looking at my spreadsheet desperately trying to find a suitable polish for today’s post, I was like:

So then I decided to just show you something random instead. :lol:

This mani started out with 3 coats of Bloom San Francisco, a gorgeous blue green shimmer I got in a swap with the lovely Kristy from The Polish Haven. San Francisco, also known as Bianca, is such a stunner, but it’s impossible (for me, at least) to capture it on film. Check out Steffels’ droolworthy pic of it, and you’ll understand why I just had to have it!

Frustrated by my lousy photography skills, I figured that my nails needed to be filed, and grabbed my trusty glass file and went to town. The resulting nubs cried out for something blingy, so I added a coat of Candeo Colors Plumage. Plumage has a sheer base with silver shimmer, green, turquoise and dark blue hex glitter, plus also seafoam square glitter. It looks awesome and is also nice and easy to apply.

Stay with me, we’re almost there now! Finally, I added a coat of Essie Matte About You, and here’s the result!

Whew! I hope you don’t mind me straying from the format, stay tuned for the conclusion of this series!

  1. Love Plumage and love your nails. Nicely shaped nubs rock!

  2. I love, love, love mattified glitter! This mani looks great. And I agree with Natalie that your nubs look awesome; nubbins need love too!

  3. Cool mani! I’m guessing you didn’t go for the norwegian alphabet lol

  4. Im also doing this series and when I checked my collection of polishes before hand to write down which polishes to use I also found several letters that didn ´t have a polish :D for instance Q, U, X and Z :D haha
    Oh well… I will have to figure something out :)
    I love this manicure though and I love your nails :)

  5. Hello! First time visitor, so not familiar with the series. But I do like the nail polish. Do they make that for dogs?

  6. Absolutely gorgeous! Isn’t San Fran AMAZING?!

  7. Love your nails! Bloom Bianca = San Francisco ? Is it available? OMy That is a lemming! You need a Y polish? lol I think I have about 10. No X though – lol Plumage is very much like one of the new Milani glitters but with squares and colors swapped around ie. small green instead of small teal. Beautiful combo! :)

  8. Pretty nails. I’m surprised you don’t own OPI’s “You don’t know Jacques” or “Yoga-ta Get this Blue”. They would have been perfect for you series.

    • Thank you. :)
      I don’t have Yoga-Ta Get This Blue. I do have You don’t know Jacques, but I’ve already written a post about it, so it’s not entirely correct that I don’t have any polishes starting with Y in my stash. :)
