Time Periods - Ancient Egypt

Hi all!

We're walking like Egyptians today down in Ancient Egypt.
Thing is when talking to a friend about this I had a different mani in my head but when I started doing it I completely forgot about my original plan, oops... Well since I'm writing this post in advance (I'm organised like that) you never know (and neither do I) this could be a double post for today's challenge.

Hieroglyphics seemed like an obvious choice as well as the colours.

Polishes Used:
OPI - Tomorrow Never Dies
OPI - DS Magic
OPI - Goldeneye
OPI - The Man With The Golden Gun

How amazing is the Tomorrow Never Dies/DS Magic combo!

And you know, despite lusting after The Man With The Golden Gun for ages, this is only the second time I used it!

Here are the hieroglyphics I used for inspiration and below you can check out what other era's I'll be attempting.


  1. wow fantastic love them! The blue and gold look fantastic together

    1. Thanks =) I forgot how nice this looked together! Xo

  2. Love the blue and gold together! I think that being such a rich vivid blue it really makes the gold pop. I really wish I had that gold flakie polish.

    1. I love it and it was well worth the investment. I removed the rest of the mani but kept the ring and thumb for a few days =) xo

  3. Amazing! Man with a Golden Gun looks stunning - how does it feel knowing you have real gold on your fingers?

    1. It's a bit surreal, I'm normally a 1 a day mani girl but I do try to make the most of this =) xo

  4. Another lovely Egyptian manicure! This is possible my favourite theme ever!


I'm trying.

Hi! So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well. I had drafted some posts a while back (...
