Hi lovelies, happy Tuesday (was meant to be Monday!) Funny how there is 5 whole days between Monday to Friday and only 2 tiny days between Friday to Monday right? Hardly sounds fair at all! Today I thought I’d share with you my current nail polish obsession, and a manicure look that I’ve just discovered. It really puts me in the mood for our non existent Spring season!
I have recently come back from a beauty treatment day at Beauty Booker. I had my hair done and a facial!! However, it definitely made me realise it’s about time I get a bit of colour on my nails so I’ve come home and got my nail kit out. I’m not sure if you know by now, but my favourite nail colour to wear is a pastel mint. It’s the colour that makes me happy and I have a feature wall in my bedroom in a pastel mint simply because I loved the look of the colour on my nails. So when this little beauty from Nails Inc landed in my life I did a little mental dance and put it amongst my ever growing pastel mint nail polish collection. (Note to self: make post on that collection!)
Now in that pastel mint collection we have quite a range of polishes, from OPI, Essie to Avon and Bourjois Paris. Some of them are a lighter mint, others a tad bit darker and probably some pretty much the same. However I am not just saying this, this is the best quality one from the bunch hands down. I introduce you to Nails Inc Haymarket, the most opaque, perfect consistency pastel polish I have ever tried. I’d double underline that ‘best’ if I could.
As you can see from the pictures, I created a gradient/ombre effect on my nails and left my ring finger fully coated in Haymarket. This was a late night spur of the moment nail polish application and I was so impressed with the results of just one coat of polish, I didn’t even bother applying another coat. I’ve been wearing this manicure out for a few days and I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it, and it didn’t chip! I took the pictures about three days into the manicure, it was much more glossy and shiny straight after the application and the next day.
So to wrap it all up, I actually got this from QVC however I can’t seem to find the polish on their site. You can pick it up from any Nails Inc stockist or directly from their website here. The nail polish retails for £11. I have a feeling this duck egg colour is going to be very popular again this year, it seems to be appearing a lot in fashion forecasts for the summer. For those of you who love good deals like me I have great news. QVC have some amazing sets available with great savings like a mini 6 piece nail polish collection for under £15! I’ve had my eye on the Nails Inc Britannia Collection (below) since last summer and I think after I’ve uploaded this post it may accidentally find its way into my basket. You can view the huge range of Nails Inc products at QVC here and the great thing about QVC is that you can read all the reviews there too from customers, I spy a lot of 5 star reviews!
That is it for today’s post, it’s super quick but I have a feeling this nail polish will be reappearing in a post real soon. This is only my first time playing around with the polish and I know I’ll keep returning to it. I may do a (neater) ombre look tutorial for you all so let me know if you would like to see that. So far, this is my favourite nail find of 2013! Hope the rest of your week goes as fast as the weekend did! Tanzina x
