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.

It is a perfect Spring/Summer colour, a bright, juicy, vibrant beauty.  I’ve got it because it was described as  “upbeat red-orange”, and being a big fan of such shades I had to

Illamasqua’s Hottest Nail Colour Competition: My Entry

I thought that I should take a part in Illamasqua’s Hottest Nail Colour Competition.

Althought I am a big fan of red and coral nail polish there are too many shades like that so I thought about teal, lime green or turquoise. I even wrote a post about teal already but changed my mind.

My perfect nail polish would look like this:

Lime gree but not too bright (or neon) with tiny golden shimmer in it.  I could not find a colour that looks like this but I love the colour of Mojito which is a lime green. I think this nail colour would be perfect for Spring!

I would love to see this colour on my nails 🙂
