Nail Varnish Picks – Spring 2014

Nail Varnish Picks

Spring 2014

As soon as March hit, I totally started wearing what I would class as spring nail varnishes. Although I do pretty much wear whatever colour I want at any time of year, but there are certain colours that I do just seem to wear at certain times of year. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite nail varnishes for Spring with you.

With changing my shifts at work to work longer days with a Thursday off, I haven’t had as much time as I used to to paint my nails. The first colour I did wear this month was Illamasqua’s Faux Pas. I wore this with a topcoat as it does dry to a satin finish on its own. I had to take the photo of this without the flash on my camera as it was totally messing with the colour, so please forgive the slight blurriness on the photo.

Nail Varnish Review – Sonnetarium Blueberry Yoghurt

Nail Varnish Review

Sonnetarium Blueberry Yoghurt

I first came across the brand Sonnetarium when I watched a review on Arcadia Nail Art’s YouTube channel. I, almost immediately, went and bought three from Sonnetarium’s website. I got two which Arcadia reviewed – Raspberry Sorbet and Blueberry Yoghurt – and one other one – Strawberry Smoothie. All three are part of the Fresh collection from Spring 2013. These nail varnishes are still available on the Sonnetarium website.

The first nail varnish I used this month was Illamasqua’s Force. My camera, however, has completely messed with the colour, it looks very blue in the photo but in real life it is much more purple, kind of like a very blue based purple.

The Nail Wheel Of Fortune – Month Three – August 2013 – Neon and Glitter

The Nail Wheel of Fortune

Month Three

August 2013

This month I made my Nail Wheel of Fortune a little different. All my swatches correspond to a spreadsheet and every swatch has it’s own number. Since summer now seems to be drawing towards it’s end here in northern England, I decided that I wanted to wear more neon colours and more glitters. So I used to pick a number, and the first glitter or neon varnish under that number on my list is the one I wore.

And so this post is super late in going up, but one of my best friends came across from America for a visit and we went to Edinburgh, so I’ve been busy having fun!

So the first glitter randomly chosen was Lac Attack’s Muggles. I was originally going to layer this over E.l.f’s Lilac, but when I went to get that varnish E.l.f’s Mint Cream caught my eye and that is what I ended up using as my base colour.

The first nail varnish I wore this month was OPI’s OPI… Eurso Euro and over the top of that I put OPI’s Man With The Golden Gun. I wore this to a wedding reception and I really enjoyed the sparkle.
