My Manicure Must Haves: Seche Vite and Seche Clear

These days I wear nail polish almost every day, so for me it’s important to have a nice base and top coats. I have already written  about Seche Vite which I absolutely adore as it helps the nail polish to dry really fast and gives a beautiful glossy shine.

As for the Seche Clear, it helps to protect my nails from staining and to make the application smoother and easier. It dries very quickly so you don’t have to wait forever for all the coats to get dry.

I also like to believe that it makes my manicure to last longer. I also wear it on it’s own sometimes.

Anyway, this is my perfect combo for a beautiful manicure. This is my second bottle of Seche Vite and I am sure that I will re-purchase Seche Clear as well.

I also love my Burt’s Bees  lemon butter cuticle cream and use it a lot. And what about you? What are your manicure essentials?

Nails Of The Day: Dior Vernis in Grege

I have already written about the foundation and the lipstick from the newest Dior Nude launch so today I want to tell you about the nail polish from the range.

I have a shade which is called Grège (£18) and which is described as ‘ the flagship colour of the New Look imagined by Christian Dior in 1947, the association of nude beige and luminous grey that is oh so very Dior.’

I really love the wide brush this nail polish comes with as it make the application easy and fast. The formula is smooth and non-streaky and you get a nice shade with one coat but I usually use two.

Nails of the Day: Maybelline Party Blue

I told you that I got several Maybelline nail polishes and last week I’ve posted  Green Park (pastel green) on the nails. This week I am wearing Party Blue which is a pretty pastel blue.

This is how it looks like on the 3rd day with no top coat. Gorgeous, right?

It is such a beautiful colour and is perfect for summer! I have to say that I got a  lot of compliments when I was wearing it!

You have to use 2 coats of Party Blue  to get an opaque colour and it looked great on my nails for 3 days, without a top coat.

I’ve noticed that this summer I love wearing bright or pastel nail polishes. Dark/vampy/red shades whcih I adore can wait till fall. Plus dark nails don’t look nice in such heat.

And what about yourself?

Nails Of The Day: Couture Colour Nail Polish in Metallic Grey

I really like this Metallic Grey nail polish from Couture Colour. It is a beautiful shade, very dark grey with subtle shimmer. Although it may not be as complex as some high end nail polishes, I still like how it reflects in the sun.

It goes on smoothly and looks opaque with two coats, as shown below on the photo.

It has a long and thin brush which is not my personal favourite but it allows a more precise application, I guess.
