Red Nails: butter LONDON Smashing

I could not think of a better topic for a new feature than a red polish that I am currently loving. By the way, if you want to keep in touch and see regular updates, please follow me on Instagram, as I post stories a few times a week if not daily.

I do love red nail polish, there is nothing quite like it for me, beauty wise. And I have written about my numerous favourites over the years.

And today, as always, I want to proclaim my love for yet another red. This time is is from butter LONDON. This was actually one of the first premium nail polish brands I have discovered. In fact, you can read my interview with their Creative Director here.

Meet Smashing!, which is described, as a fiery siren red, and it is, indeed. It definitely packs a punch. Smashing,

Red Nails: Essie Russian Roulette

Eyeliner + mascara and red nails are the most “me” makeup products. I feel my best when I am wearing good eye makeup and a good red nail varnish.

I have had a few favourites during the years, such as:

Beauty Inspiration: Red Nails, Lips, Shoes, Dresses

I have always loved red but lately I have been obsessed with it more than usual(if that is even possible), I have been pinning and saving beautiful and inspiring pictures on Pinterest and buying red clothes, lingerie and accessories.

I am still on the hunt for the perfect red shoes though!  But hopefully will find a pair soon.

Here is a little mood board that I put together after hours of Internet browsing.  Which is your favourite picture?

Nails Of The Day: Dior Pandore. Forever Red.

I am the biggest red manicure fan ever, and quite frankly red nail polish is one of my favourite makeup product, it feels very me. And while I have been a huge fan of Max Factor Cerise, and used up 3 bottles  of it, I’ve decided to treat myself to some  high end red nail polishes.

So please meet these beauties: YSL  6 Red Dada and 754 Dior Pandore.

Nails Of The Day: Marc Jacobs Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola

Regular readers know that I am a huge fan of red nail polishes, and I am actually very picky, there are not that many that I truly like. My favourite is actually Revlon’s Red, it is a bright true red, not dull, but not neon, not warm toned, but not too cool – it’s a timeless classic.

But I’ve managed to find another red which I love as much, as Revlon. It is Marc Jacob’s Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola. You can see  it, freshly applied, here.

But on the photo below is  manicure with Lola after a week, that’s why it doesn’t look i’t best! It is with a top coat, since without it the nail polish doesn’t last for the whole week. But still impressive, right? There are very few nail polishes that last that well on me.

  • Look at that design! It’s the coolest nail polish bottle I’ve ever seen. When I saw the promo photos for the first time – I knew that it had to be mine.
