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
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.
I have two shades: Rock the Runway which is a beautiful classic red and Spiked With Style a vampy beauty. To be honest,
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!

Essie 61 Russian Roulette Nail Polish
I am wearing a pink nail polish for the 3rd time in my life! I can imagine how much you all are surprised. But everything is very simple. I just don’t like pink. That’s it! For the first time I wore pink nail polish for the wedding of my best friend who said that I should wear a pink dress. At first I thought this is some kind of a cruel joke (as she knows that I would never wear a pink dress) but unfortunately, it wasn’t.
The second time I wore pink was when I’ve got this nail polish several months ago in summer. I’ve wanted to try it but I forgot to take the photos of back then. So now I am wearing this nail polish for the second time! It feels very strange to see my pink nails but it’s ok I guess, not that bad after all.
As for this nail polish, I am very
I am a big fan of black nail polishes and I do have several different variants but I wanted even more. That’s when Illamasqua’s Scron, a black with a matte finish caught my attention. So did purchase it recently.
Maybe it makes more sense to get a matte top coat instead of matte nail polish but I think matte top coat gives a more flat finish while the “original” matte nail polish looks much better.
Please excuse all the fingerprints…
It looks opaque with two coats, as you can see from the photo above.
The brand actually offers some shades with rubber finish if you want something different. But I love my nail polish to be glossy so I will stick to a black version. The price is £13.50. Illamasqua is available from Selfridges and ASOS.
