Before I get carried away with red and gold glitter nails for the Christmas period I thought I would share what I currently have on my nails. It’s always great to see bloggers releasing products so I was very excited to see Estee Lalonde’s (previously Essie Button) collaboration with The Body Shop.
They are releasing the Estee Lalonde Nail Art Kit, which comes with three nail colours and a nail art pen. The three nail shades included are Got The Blues, Deeply in Love and Gorgeous Grey- all perfectly picked as they are great all year round colours. The most autumnal shade is probably the Deeply in Love shade which is the one I went for. It has a great brush, dried quickly and applied evenly with two coats. Although I’m not a huge nail art fan I couldn’t resist using the dotting tool, I decided to dot a single Got the Blues dot at the base of my nail and I really like the clash of colour.
Really lovely nail art kit with especially beautiful nail shades and it’s out today for just £15. Stock is limited and they will only be available in certain stores so I’d recommend you start looking soon if you’re looking to pick one up.
With Easter this week I thought I would share a fun nail look which anyone can achieve but is also a great way to share five beautiful pastel shades with you. This isn’t really a work appropriate nail but it’s great for anyone that is on half term from school/uni or someone that wants something a little more fun for the four-day weekend.
Three of the shades were from the new S/S15 Gosh range, which is a high-shine and fast drying line made up of seven colours. I used Pretty Ballerina, French Dream and Sunkissed which all applied well with two/three coats which is pretty standard from a pastel polish but dried very quickly too (I also used Snow White for the dots). At only £3.99 they are a great option if you are looking for affordable polishes.
Also affordable is the Collection 7 Day Wear polish which I used in Ice admittedly this is a little bit streakier but look great after three thin coats and is a really beautiful pastel robin egg blue,
Quality wise I really love the Nails Inc Gel Effect polishes (Nails Inc have some truly beautiful new shades which I will hopefully share soon!) and although they are more expensive they are worth the extra ££, especially if it is a shade you will get lots of wear from. The pigmentation is excellent requiring only two thin coats but the high-shine is really comparable to that of a gel manicure. I used the shade Seven Dials which although isn’t to everyones taste I find really brightens up the other colours.
