Oh the lure of the nail polish is never far away..
I picked up these little lovelies in Dundrum last week but as I hadn't had a chance to remove my Everlasting OPI polish I had put on for the old nuptials (which drove me slightly INSANE by the way, it caught on everything and some nails were chipped and my nails looked like they'd grown a crazy amount so the polish was MILES down the nail bed..AARGH!! Yes, I know- First world problem) so I was looking forward to painting my nails after my appointment to have it removed and wearing a colour that is not a pastel blue, as much as I love it. Unfortunately my nails are in bits from the Everlasting polish so I'm using OPI Nail Envy for the next two weeks to get them into good shape for a family wedding and then I shall be breaking out the colour! Here's my little polish haul:
Ciate Paint Pots in Apples and Custard (a beautiful smooth green creme, it reminds me of the colour of vintage enamel tiles in French Cafes) and Twilight (a black base with very fine gold glitter).
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cherry Cherry Bang Bang (a rich purple creme, I've been after this for an absolute age!) and Commander in Chic (a nude/beige creme).
Rimmel Stronger Double Duty Base Coat, Pro Super Wear Ultra Shine Top coat and Professional Finish in Trend Spotting (a black cherry shade, potentially a dupe for Chanel's Rouge Noir).
OPI Nail Envy
The one that's preventing me from actually swatching any of the above lovelies for you..all in good time! (it's going to kill me having these and not being able to use them! Aargh!) Nail Envy contains Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein and Calcium to strengthen natural nails. Suggested use is two coats to start off with, followed by one coat every other day. Fingers crossed (ha) it does the job!
