Paris is a discontinued polish but Zoya have reused the name for one of the jelly brites polishes. Paris is described as deep brown undertoned  red.

Jem is one of my all time favourites, in the bottle you see a purple hue but on the nail its vamp deep red with red/fuchsia flecks, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat, she also stamps. This used to be my initials so of course I have a soft spot for this one. 

Paris the original is stunning, she reminds me of a redder Lincoln Park After Dark by OPI, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat, she also stamps.

My weekend mani was two coats of Skipper then stamped with Virago Varnish She Cries Everyday. I used a couple of the Uberchic summer plates.

Last pics are my chopped off 9 inches of tail from my hair, I could sit on it but it was very annoying in the extreme heat we had recently, as you can see its still very long though! 



  1. Jem is stunning! I love it :-D Great weekend mani too :-D

    Wow that is a lot of hair gone and it is still long! Does your hair grow quickly? Mine tends to but after having a baby it is a bit slower.

    1. Thanks, no my hair is very slow growing, but the ends were awful, it hadn’t seen a hairdresser since 2019 😱 and being able to sit on it wasn’t so fun in this heat lol so I banded it up and told the hubs to cut it, I knew he would just cut it and not hesitate lol it feels really good now.
