As you've seen on some other wheels, there are scratches in the finish of some of these due to my not letting them dry completely before stacking the wheels next to the lightbox in preparation to photograph them.

Looking at the numbers of wheels I've painted and not yet posted, I can see that I'm in no danger of running out of content for this series any time soon. I'm pondering having a Nail Wheel Weekend at some point just to work down the backlog a bit.


  1. Such a great wheel, all the colours are so pretty!

  2. I liked the first set of numbers. My favorite is Zoya don't be shellfish.

  3. I think I like all of these, but especially the ones with shimmers in them!

  4. Gorgeous! The first three really caught my eye!

  5. So happy the ones that caught my eye are ones I already have (12 and 16)...and the Rimmell....I literally picked up around Christmas time in a discount bin at Rexall!

  6. Oooh, Revlon Sugar Plum is stunning!

  7. I love numbers 1, 8 and 14. Gorgeous nail wheel!

  8. These are so beautiful!! I need to get my hands on Tease-y Does It. It's so gorgeous!

  9. I love first three, and 12-13! :)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :)
