Yes! I am SO into nail varnishes right now it’s crazy!
My love of experimenting with colourful nail varnishes started up again when my fella got me a whole buncha’ different colours for my birthday!
Such treats for my eyes, I couldn’t try them all out at the same time fast enough!
His current fav’s on me are the yellow and the bright blue. He says they are ‘super hero-esque’ colours, and I can’t argue with that! When I saw these two shades I straight away said ‘The Watchmen colours’! I think that got me bonus points ;)
I surprisingly quite like a very pale blue out of the set too. At first it was a little too bright light; almost like Tipex. But after a few hours of wearing it, it grew on me, and now I think it’s quite feminine.
At first I thought it might not be very flattering becuase I have a pale skintone which can look quite drained against certain colours, but I think it can actually make a skin tone look more tanned:
To achieve a different look, I tested out using a bright yellow as a base colour before applying the pale blue (be sure to completely cover the base colour!…Unless you’re using a ‘crackle’ effect varnish).
I think it worked quite well actually. It seems to have given a slightly different shade and it appears thicker and more matte, which I like:
I try to wear this colour nail varnish with light coloured attire. I’ve noticed that it looks kind of cheap when paired with darks. Even with a plain white vest top can look casual but part of the ‘Romantic’ trend. Oooh – with a floaty maxi-skirt and a delicate decorated but chunky clutch: now that’s pre-planning!…Just need to get the maxi…And clutch…And…Oh bother.
I’ve never worn bright red nail varnish before; only perhaps once as a child from one of those dress-up makeup sets. But as a teenager upwards, I’ve not dared to wear it.
As soon as I painted my first nail, even the first coat; the colour just popped! I love to wear it with a black blazer outfit; usually with jeans and a funky; but fairly plain tee underneath.
This month I have tested out the following colours from Nailstation Paris:
BabyDoll – a pale pink, that needs around 4 layers in order to build up a nice colour! But it’s a very subtle shade that is good for formal meetings.
Aquamarine/Juicy Gossip: A gorgeous favourite of mine that I used up in the first month of owning it! It goes with so many outfits, and got many comments!
Dating Scene: A real eye-popping shade of red! Looks great with suits, especially black.
Confidentiel – a gorgeous shade of yellow, so summery and funky!
Cartoon Cute – a cool pea green tone that appears risky when in the pot, but when doubled up on layers, it really stands out!
Girlfriend – bright pink tone, so feminine and pretty! Don’t wear with purple!
