I am really loving bright colours for my nails at the moment. I would normally wear pastels throughtout spring and then the brights in the summer, but for some reason I want to wear brights now and I am absolutely loving it.
These are a few of my favourites, which I seem to be wearing alot lately.
China Glaze 'light as air', Barry M 'pure turquoise', No7 'spice', Models Own 'sophies pink'
Not pictured Illamasqua 'radium' swatches here.
China Glaze 'light as air' is a beautiful milky lilac. I bought this last year, but had hardly worn it as I find these pastel polishes so hard to apply as a simple mistake/smudge looks a million times worse in my opinion. It has a lovely consistency, not too thick or thin, and it is fully opaque in 1 coat.
Barry M 'pure turquoise' is a turquoise obviously. There is nothing mega special about it. I just like it. Like all Barry M polishes, it applies nicely and is very affordable and easy to find. Also looks gorgeous with a tan!
No7 'spice'. I raved about this a while back, and yes I still love it as much as I did back then. It is one of the most perfect milky coral/pink polishes I have ever found. It is a fab shade for spring/summer and again.. will look amazing with a tan (which I don't have hmpff!).
Models Own 'sophies pink'. This is hands down my favourite models own polish. It is very bright almost neon in certain lights. I actually wear this all year round, I don't care if people think I'm mad. I don't really 'do' pink polishes, but I just love this one for some reason, definately recommend it!
Illamasqua 'radium'. I did a whole post about this nail polish here, with swatches so check that out if you like.
and finally as I wasn't going to keep all different coloured nail polishes on one hand, I figured I might aswell apply the Barry M nail effect in white over top, which I blogged about a few days ago.
I like it over 'light as air' but I really don't like it over the other three.
What do you think?
