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:

And now it’s time to share my favourite red of 2021 so far!

Nails Of The Day: Essie Gel Couture in Rock the Runway and Spiked With Style

I have already posted a few “nails of the day” recently, and here is a brand new one, featuring one of my favourite nail polish formula – Essie Gel Couture (now on offer at Boots for £6.66 only).

In fact, it’s a firm favourite of a lot of people, and rightly so. It’s a gel-at-home-kinda formula. It gives you a long lasting effect, without the pain of taking it off the gel polish style. Obviously, it won’t last for weeks like the “real” gel nail polish but way longer than most regular varnishes.

Nails Of The Day: Nailberry Cherry Chérie

I read  that the nail polish sales went up recently, and I am not surprised.  While we can’t go out and get our nails done, it’s still really nice to have  a beautiful nail polish on.  Having red nails is one of my favourite things ever, and I am not going to stop painting them just because I don’t go out.

I have posted about so many red nail polishes (even a few weeks ago) over the years, and here is the latest edition – Nailberry Cherry Chérie.

Nails of The Day: Ciate Gelology in Mistress

One of my favourite things, beauty wise, is red nails. And staying at home doesn’t mean that I will stop wearing my beautiful red nail varnishes.  In fact, I enjoy it even more now.

So today I want to share one of my favourites. A gorgeous red. I present you Nails Of The Day, the old school kind of post.

The nail varnish I am talking about is Ciate Gelology in Mistress.

It is an absolutely beautiful classic red, it instantly lifts my mood, and I just love looking at it. Being a
