I’m not sure what’s got into me recently, but having chipped nails has become a pet hate. There was a time I would wear the same chipped black nail varnish until I got time to take it off – now I MAKE time. I can honestly say I’ve never had a manicure (I really should!), and the rare few times I’ve stuck false nails on they tend to ruin my nails, so nail polish is my favourite alternative.
I recently got given a gorgeous Essie lilac nail polish, alongside a Revlon nail art (moon candy) double end polish. Well, without haste I took to using both my new nail polishes in one go and the results were OKAY, yes, just okay.
The moon candy looked great, but I also put the glitter on top of the lilac which didn’t work so well. I try to avoid too many dark colours unless it’s a special occasion, hammering away at a keyboard all day means if a dark colour chips it instantly looks bad, hence my love for baby pinks and pastel shades. I love the Essie lilac and have worn it numerous times since, but the moon candy I’m afraid is going away for special occasions.
Here’s the results, let me know what you think!
