An Ever So Slight Nail Obsession

Monday, 1 April 2013

Lately, I seem to have developed a slight obsession with nail polish.  I've never really been one to have constantly painted or perfect nails, but recently that seems to have changed.  I've been buying nail polish like it's going out of style!  So I thought I'd share with you, four of my current favourite colours and brands.


Clockwise from top left corner: 'Bikini So Teeny' by Essie, 'Poppy' by Revlon, 'Marino' by Borghese and 'Peachy' by Revlon

The first is 'Bikini So Teeny' by Essie.  I have this on at the moment and I love it!  I had never tried Essie before, but had heard good things about it and so far I haven't been disappointed.  I've had it on for 3 days now and it still looks pretty and fresh.

The second is 'Poppy' by Revlon.  I have always loved Revlon's nail polish - I find they always go on streak-free and are long lasting.  This colour is so pretty and I've received many compliments while wearing it.  I love it!

The third is 'Marino' by Borghese.  I found this in a 'bargain bin' at my local pharmacy and it is one of the best I've ever bought!  I love the colour, but it's also just a great brand of polish - goes on easy and streak-free, it's long lasting and takes a lot for it to chip.

And finally, the fourth is 'Peachy' by Revlon.  As I mentioned, I'm a big fan of Revlon when it comes to nail polish, and this colour is just so pretty.  Orange seems to be in at the moment and this is just the right shade - not too bright, but still bright enough to pop.  This one is my absolute fave at the moment!

So if, like me, you love having gorgeous nails but can't afford constant trips to the salon, I highly recommend any of these for an in-expensive, D.I.Y. mani-pedi.  Love them all!

  3. A great light orange/melon shade is 'Are We There Yet' by OPI, it's not too bright or over the top but still has 'pop'. But I'm a sucker for the extreme colours which of course I end up getting bored with after a few days, so I tend to get colours from the BYS range or the cheap brands at pharmacies (which do chip after a couple of days, but if you don't mind regularly removing/touching up polish and don't have sensitive nails it a good quick fix.

    1. I'll have to check that one out - I really love all the different oranges at the moment. They're so pretty and OPI has to be one of the best ☓

  4. I'd definitely be only buying OPI if I could afford it, from my experience it last for days without a single chip. But for now have to stick to BYS : /
