Excuse my crusty/dry hands blush
The colour is purple storm maybelline super stay

Bare today but I will be painting them a grey colour tomorrow I think it is Opi but not sure - part of the 'charcoal' range. I also love the blue from the Alice in Wonderland range.

They are pink at the moment but they are due to be changed on Monday. I think I am going to go for a gold sparkly colour as I am going to see the Strictly tour in Manchester next weekend and I think sparkly nails will be in order.

Short and rose gold

Dark, metallic green but as you can clearly see they are grown out and I am having them redone in an hour. I was going to go for navy blue but bluesky has made a good point re. The Strictly tour. I will be there in a few days and she is quite right, SCD needs sparkles. Maybe black with clear glitter tips would be in order.

Mine are Prussian Blue from Next, lovely colour and nice and cheap! Impressive staying power too.

TizzyDongue Thu 26-Jan-17 11:02:07

Denim blue (and chipped)

CantChoose Thu 26-Jan-17 11:06:08

Mine are naked but will be doing them this afternoon. Placemarking for inspiration!

MotherofA Thu 26-Jan-17 11:16:16

A sparkly mixture

MeadowHay Thu 26-Jan-17 12:55:33

Bright green (and a tiny bit messy/chipped, woops). It is from the Barry M's Gelly range.

FeliciaJollygoodfellow Thu 26-Jan-17 13:45:11

OPI on her majesty's secret service (from the Bond collection when Casino Royale came out!).

Gutted my Casino Royale dried up but this is nice too. Needs redoing though as you can see I chipped it today.

FeliciaJollygoodfellow Thu 26-Jan-17 13:46:52

If you like rose gold you HAVE to get Barry M Twinkle. It's a limited edition though, I think for Superdrug but might be Boots - simply gorgeous colour. Have a look pronto!

EmmaWoodlouse Thu 26-Jan-17 15:38:22

Mine aren't painted right now but I fancy doing them either taupe or that sort of sludgy very muted pink.

polyhymnia Thu 26-Jan-17 15:42:44

Very pale pink - Essie Ballet Slippers.

Ifonlyiweretaller Thu 26-Jan-17 15:45:03

Oxblood Shellac. It's gorgeous - and happens to match my handbag today!

firsttimemum15 Thu 26-Jan-17 15:45:09

Gold/holographic glitter

littlerose12345 Thu 26-Jan-17 15:48:30

Great thread!

@WiltingTulip - what shade are yours?

Nospringflower Thu 26-Jan-17 15:53:25

Does everyone spend a fortune on their nails? I cant afford to keep getting Shellac all the time!

Mine are rose gold shellacy stuff £32 shock

Artandco Thu 26-Jan-17 15:57:14

I paint own nails. So very cheap

littlerose12345 Thu 26-Jan-17 15:57:35

I paint my own too x

happyfeet1 Thu 26-Jan-17 15:57:59

Short bio gels in Love Potion, it's a dark wine/burgundy colour, also have a very similar colour on my toes by Essie. It's my favourite colour in clothes too!

blueskyinmarch Thu 26-Jan-17 16:42:58

I just cannot paint my nails without making a huge mess of it. Getting my nails done is an extravagance but I can afford it so it's fine and it makes me feel so much better when my nails are nice.
