Currently Loving: Red and Berry Nail Polishes

I used to be a bit obsessed with all the different nail polishes. All those out-of-this-world stunning shades and innovative finishes  really rocked my world. Of course, I am no way even close to the  real nail polish fanatics, but I do have several shades of yellow, for example.

But recently something changed and I’ve been wearing classic colours all the time, think red/berry/plum.  I don’t know why, but every time I paint my nails with green or brown, I’m not feeling it. It’s been like this for about two months. Back to the basics?

My Top 3 Blue Nail Polishes

Recently I was re-organizing my beauty products and realized that I have quite a few blue nail polishes. In fact, considering that I have around 100 in general, 14  is not a small number.

Actually I am not a collector [when it comes to lacquers] and try to make sure that I don’t have a dupe before buying a new bottle and the photo below actually proves my point. Can you see that they all are very different?

So I have decided to show you my top 3:

Rimmel Lycra PRO Nail Polish in Blue Vogue

This is a gorgeous deep shimmering navy blue, such a chic and sophisticated shade, in my opinion.  I really love the formula which is

Nude Nail Polishes: Dior, Ciate, butter LONDON, Yves Rocher, Rimmel and MeMeMe

For someone who is not exactly into “nude” nail polishes, I have quite a few. I have chosen seven which could fit the nude/taupe/brown-ish category.

So what shades do I have? And which is my favourite?

Nude Nail polishes Dior, Ciate, MeMeMe, butter LONDON, Yves Rocher,Rimmel

Dior Vernis in Grege

I love the wide and thin brush which makes the application super easy and fast.  It is a beautiful warm shade which suits me when I get some tan. But if you have a light-to-medium warm skin tone – this may be a perfect nude for you.  See it applied on the nails.

MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Alluring

This is one of the darkest nail polishes from the selection, and should be a nice nude for people with darker skin. Or if you want a brown nail polish against the light skin.  The quality is nice for the price, too.  Swatches.

Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Taupe

This is definitely not a nude, but a taupe.  Such shade was super popular several years ago and I can totally see why: it goes well with pretty much everything and doesn’t compete with your outfit or accessories. Manicure with it.

Nails Of The Day: LVX Sanguine Nail Lacquer

I am happy to share about the new nail polish brand called LVX (Latin, means Light) which  is a 5 Free (without Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor), cruelty free, vegan nail polish.

The main idea behind the brand is to compliment the seasonal fashion trends.

So far there are only three collections available – Summer 2012, Fall/Winter 2012 and Winter Resort 2013. And I have a shade which is a part of the Fall/Winter collection and is called Sanguine.

The formula of this nail polish is great, it goes on  smoothly without streaks and looks beautiful even with one coat, but I still prefer two. The brush, which is also a very important thing, is nice,aw well. It’s not too thin or too thick (although I personally like thick brushes), just spot on.

This colour is

My Top 5 Nail Polishes for Autumn/Winter

I’ve decided to show you my “Top 5” nail polishes for Autumn/Winter. It was actually very hard to choose only five, but these are definitely my favourites.

Rimmel Blue Vogue

One of my favourite nail polishes. It is a sophisticated dark blue with subtle shimmer. I adore the wide brush, the formula and the staying power. Here is me wearing it on the nails.

Illamasqua Viridian

It is probably my favourite nail varnish out of all that I have! The formula, the shade and the staying power are fantastic! I don’t think I could love it more. Maybe if the brush was wider… You can see me wearing it here.

Revlon Red

I had to include a
