Nailing It!

So as I mentioned in an earlier post this week has been all about the nails. I have to be honest and admit nail polish isn’t a makeup that I’m particularly good at applying, in fact most cases I leave my nails to talented friends or experts but hey ho.. Summer is around the corner and what better time is there to be colourful.

The Brights

I love bright nails and it is fair to say they can be complementing to any complexion. All the above colours are from some of my favourite brands who all seem to be jumping on the neon band wagon, the Nails inc are from the ‘Kings of Neon’ collection they had out last year, although this year they have a wicked ‘Neon and Nude’ collection( retailing at £22.00)  as well as great individual neon colours available this summer.

Barry M is one of my favourite brands for makeup on a budget and their ‘Shocking Pink’ as shown above is great and at £2.99 it is a bargain. The bright red on the left hand side is from Maxfactor mini nail polish collection and is in ‘Red carpet glam’ the coral red colour is great for a daytime or night time look.

The Pale Pastels

A trend that started in spring and continues into summer, pastels look like they are here to stay two of my bargain pastel shade are shown above; Rimmel Pro (On the right), which features a wider brush for easier application and an anti-fade system (which does work!) comes in this lovely ‘Peppermint’ shade and retails at around £4.59.

Along side this is a new addition to the 17 lasting fix nail polish line – this is ‘Mellow Yellow’ which describes this pale yellow colour perfectly. I love the hint of glitter which gives my nails a lovely sheen, I do find I need 3 layers of this for a thick coverage but its great once applied! The nails inc shown from left to right are ‘Warwick Avenue’ and ‘In style Candy’ both are great pastel shades that last and last..
