Hot chocolate, candle, Netflix and nail painting where once my Sunday night ritual, but limiting my nail varnish usage during pregnancy followed by having a baby and never having time for my nails means it’s been quite a while since I enjoyed the process! I’m pleased to say I’m now getting back into it, I’d even forgotten about quite a few of the colours I have in my ever growing collection.
I’ve been going for lots of fun, bright, spring-y shades. O.P.I Strawberry Daiquiri on my toes has definitely been cheering up my grey, early morning yoga sessions and I’ve been reaching for Essie Tart Deco and Not Just a Pretty Face as well as Barry M Gelly in Blueberry for my fingers.
I find all of these are easy to apply, thanks to their wide, flat brushes. They last a good 4-5 days provided I use a base and top coat and let each layer dry properly.
I always feel much more put together and grown up when my nails are painted, even if they are bright blue!
