Nails Of The Day: Essence Nail Polish in What Do U Think?

I was wearing Shellac for 20 days and I removed it only because my nails were growing, everything else looked perfect. And yesterday I’ve applied a new nail polish – Essence What Do U Think (#22) which is perfect for spring in my opinion.

I really like this pastel coral but it is kind of strange to see that my nails have a different colour after such a long time of being red.

The application is a bit streaky but looks nice with 2 coats as you can see from the photo above.

 

Nails Of The Day: Sally Hansen Nail Polish in Blue It

It’s  cold today and snow is everywhere (which makes me happy) so I thought that it’s a perfect time for a dark blue nail polish.

The only dark (well, relatively) blue which I have is Sally Hansen Blue It so I’ve decided to wear it today. I have to say that it is an amazing colour, I only wish it stayed on my nails for a longer time.

I am wearing one layer of nail polish and a Seche Vite top coat. I should have used 2 layers but it looks ok with 1 layer in real life, I guess it looks kind of streaky because of the flash. By the way you can actually see the snow on the background.

And what  nail polish are you wearing this week?

Nails Of The Day: Inglot 722 Yellow Nail Polish

I am a fan of a yellow nail polish for a long time already and I even posted one shade of yellow before.

But I wanted the other shade of yellow for this SS and it was BEFORE I saw Mimosa, so no, this purchased was not influenced by Chanel. I just couldn’t find the shade I wanted for a long time.   But luckily I’ve managed to find it at Inglot. By the way, they have 4 or 5 yellow nail polishes from very pale, almost white pastel to a dark orangey yellow.

So here is the nail polish which I’ve got.

To tell the truth, you need some skills to apply it as this nail polish is unforgiving and it will show all the imperfections. And yes, everyone will look on your nails when you are wearing such a bright yellow.

After some errors I’ve managed to paint my nails but I still can’t say that I am very happy with the effect. But practice makes perfect as we all know.

To make this nail polish look nice I would recommend
