Summer Nails on the Cheap! What colours are you wearing this year?
Barry M Gelly's are fabulous! (I don't work for them btw but I do keep raving about them!). I'm a bit of a nail varnish slut so have loads of different brands but these are brilliant and really good value.
Think they are 3 for 2 in Superdrug atm and last all week. Very glossy and shiny. There's some links to swatches on my Pinterest board if you want a look.
MUA in Superdrug has some great pastel colours and they chip no quicker than any expensive brand. Some of them are a pound and others are around the £3.50 mark. I have quite a few and am very pleased with them
Coral is my colour of choice this summer. I love it! I found this bargain coral colour yesterday so thought I'd give it a try since it's so cheap. Have only just painted my nail so not sure on the chip resistant yet... My nail varnishes are always put to the test, as I'm an administrator so spend 90% of my time at work typing away
I treated myself to Maybelline Gel 7 day wear in Rose Poudre yesterday.. tired of paying out for Shellac and hate polishes that chip. Now it is early days but I am delighted with the finish of it. Very natural colour too.c
I bought an OPI glittery one (when they had The Muppets theme a couple of years back). I put 3-4 layers on for New Years Eve. Really nice. Spent most of Jan 2nd chipping the blardy stuff off to go back to work
I know its a pastel etc. but at 40 I think retro 80's looks sad - because I really was there first time.
just come back from nail salon in preparation for my hols, I am sporting midasesq matt gold nails ( no gliter), as I got some awesome free gold nailpolish with cosmo a couple of weeks ago and I can now touch them up whilst abroad.
