My Manicure: Miniature Mozaic

A miniature mozaic graces my digits two,
Atop a grape that Barry M calls blue,
It's hue showing here a tad subdued,
In front of my eyes it's got a darker mood,
A shade of cobalt so deep it reigns supreme,
A shade so perfect as if lifted from a dream,
Served with a glitter from Essie of many hues,
On a silver platter dotted with golds and blues.

My Manicure: McQueen Monochrome

Monochrome menswear from Mr McQueen,
inspired the manicure that can be seen, 
Squares and lines of black and white,
Flanked by leathered textured delight,
The rough with the smooth, side by side,
The black with the white, on my nails applied.

My Manicure: Siriano Stripes

Dressing my digits in Siriano tonight,
Clothed in pink and black striped delight,
Flanked by black patterns of chevron and squares,
Joined by neon pink studs in pairs.


Inspired by a dress by Christian Siriano


Zoya "Lola" didn't photograph as bright as it really is.

My Manicure: Versace Glitter Illusion

Darkness wrapped around my digits ten,
Glimpses of nude alluded to but then,
Trimmed with glitter to draw the eye,
To that nude illusion, oh me, oh my!
Avert the eye or look closer still?
It's not really naked, it's just the thrill.
