Winter Nail Polish Favourites
Painting my nails is something i love to do on a Friday evening after a nice relaxing bath. I have been painting my nails more often recently and also had a professional manicure a few weeks ago.
These nails are actually glue-on nails that i bought at the beginning of December in Penneys/Primark. I thought they were very cute and it was much easier than trying to paint reindeer on, myself! These cost €1.50 and lasted quite well, considering the price. I find these glue-on nails easy to apply and easy to shape and get to the length i want.
This is a picture of the Gel manicure i got a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed getting my nails done and was curious to see what all the hype about Gel manicures was. I was very impressed by this experience. My manicure lasted about 18 days which was really impressive. It took me quite a while to choose a colour but i eventually decide on this lovely coral-red. I will definitely be treating myself to another manicure soon!
A classic French polish manicure is hard to beat, I love the classy, polished look it gives and is easy to maintain. I used an Essence French Tip polish and the Essie 'No Chips Ahead' as my base and to coat. I decided not to use a French pink as i prefer a less fake look. My nails are quite short recently but i don't think that super long nails are a must for a French manicure.
This is one of my most recent nail polish purchase. I picked up this lovely maroon Essie polish in a pharmacy/drugstore on sale at €3.50! I wish i had picked up a few more colours but resisted the temptation to stock up. This is the prefect Autumn/Fall colour and is a staple in an nail polish collection.
Glitter, the perfect Christmas nail polish! This is the latest addition to my nail polish collection. This is Barry M - 'Yellow Topaz' , i love glittery nail polish and this one gives a really nice opaque shimmer. This polish can be used either as a top coat on any colour you like or on it's own as a simple glam look that ads to a party outfit.
One of my favourite all year round colour is Essie - 'Spaghhetti Strap'. It's a pretty nude pink and compliments any outfit or style. I find it rather difficult however to get an opaque coverage without it going too thick and then not drying properly.
The nail polishes that are on my 'Wishlist' are:
Essie - 'Turquoise and Caicos'
' Really Red'
