Painting my nails has become a part of my Sunday night routine, I find it a nice way to prepare for the week by having a mini mani...
I usually like to use nail varnish remover on my nails, weather or not I already have nail varnish on. I find that it really cleans the nails, taking away any remains of previous polish and make sure that the new coat of colour is going on a cleanse nail. I then like to use a hand scrub to give my mints a bit of a pamper and get rid of all dry skin. Then I am ready to shape my nails, making sure that each one is nice and even, before washing my hands with warm soapy water, ready to pop on some colour.
I have really been loving a couple of polishes from Barry M of late. I picked up two shades a few weeks ago from Boots, as they had an offer of buy one get one half price on Barry M nail varnish. The lavender colour was from their Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Prickly Pear.
The baby pink nail varnish was from the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint in In A Heart Beat. I love these soft pastel colours and I think that they are really nice colours for summer. Although I am aware that summer is now drawing to a close and I will soon have to put these shades away until spring 2016, I want to cling on to the last remains of the warmer weather and lighter evenings.
Once I have applied the number of required coats of polish, I like to apply some form of top coat to give it all a nice even finish.
What nail varnish have you been loving of late?
