Well I have a few beauty missions in my life and one of them is to find a non-uv gel nail polish that lasts more than two days on my nails. I really admire people who can get 4/5 days out of nail polish, I’m lucky if I can escape the day without a chip. I have tried long wearing gel polishes from the likes of CND Vinylux but didn’t get incredibly long wearing results. I had wanted to try the Sally Hansen one but heard mixed reports so I decided not to face disappointment again.
I was feeling a bit down in the dumps the other day so decided to cheer myself up with a bit of nail art, as you do! I had a rummage though my stash and found this bright neon pink called Pink Punch. For some reason it’s coming out a little orange in photos but in reality it’s more pink toned. I had to jazz it up of course, so I dug out a Barry M Nail Art pen which I hadn’t even opened. The pen is brilliant I have to say, really easy to use, although it’s tricky doing your right hand. This is supposed to be leopard print style, not sure if I pulled it off but it cheered me up!
In her new video Jennifer Lopez wears yellow lipstick nonetheless! Now yellow lipstick is a bit out there for me, imagine turning up at the office with that on! But JLo also has yellow nails in the vid as well, which is a bit more up my street. It’s probably not something I’d wear really often so I opted for a budget yellow polish. I picked up the Essence Colour to Go Polish in 27 below, which was just €1.50. Of course I couldn’t stop at just a colour and had to add an accent nail with Barry M Confetti polish in Sour Apple.
