Nails Ahoy

I’ve spoken about my love for nail varnish on my blog before, but it cant hurt to talk about it some more! I’m one of those girls who can’t have what I call, ‘naked nails’. Each to their own, but to me looking down and seeing nude nails is just vile. I love colour and painted nails fits into that box perfectly. I am quite loyal to a couple of brands, namely Essie and Barry M.

Barry M is such a drugstore beauty; cheap and cheerful but with masses of staying power. I often favour a Barry M for my toes, but just recently a Barry M gelly green and dark green saw me through the 5 days at Glastonbury with minimal chips- ideal to hide dirty nails!

Essie is a little more expensive but long-lasting and gorgeous colours. I find I have to travel to a larger Boots store to get a wider range as I seem to have bought out my local store’s stock, but they release new shades every couple of months which is perfect for girls who like to change their nails a couple of times a week like me!

And my lastest love, but one which can’t be indulged too often due to keeping a hold on the purse strings- Illamasqua. After lusting after their speckle nail varnishes for a LONG time I treated myself to the purple shade during their 50% Twitter sale in May and then my lovely work friends treated me to the green for my birthday! I was defo spoilt! They are really thick, sometimes require a couple of coats, but I can’t fault them as a brand!
