Four Most Used Nail Polishes


Now I've never really been a nail polish girl until the last couple of months after getting a new job that allows me to wear nail polish, so choosing my top four polishes was fairly easy as I only have just over 10 polishes. My go to colour is a deep berry shade, safe but I just can't stay away from those colours..


Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour (£4.49) in Extreme Blackcurrant (wow that was a mouthful) is my favourite berry shade at the moment as it is the deepest I own and after a couple of coats it can look black. The brush is wide and so easy to apply, and with this polish you can get away with one coat at a push. 

Models Own in Grape Juice (£5), at the time I wanted a lilac shade and it was between this and I Lilac You from Rimmel but when I saw this is a scented polish which intrigued me and swayed me to buy this. It doesn't have a really strong scent but just a better scent than a normal nail polish would have. I love to wear this almost neon shade when I go for a boring outfit that consists mainly of black. The brush is fairly thin but I find this reasonably easy to apply than other polishes.

Moire Green from & Other Stories is a beautiful almost pearlized pastel mint green. After seeing Kate from Gh0stparties mention this I couldn't help but try and find a shade similar on the high-street but I wasn't having any luck so on my next shopping trip to Central London I decided to pop in and buy it. I was rather lucky considering there was only one left in this shade, my journey home consisted of me painting my nails this gorgeous shade. I find that it is really flattering on my skin tone which surprised me as I am quite pale (bright white in fact) and usually polishes look out of place or unflattering on my nails. The brush is unfortunately quite thin and two coats is a definite to make it opaque.

Last is one of my latest purchases, Essie Beyond Cosy (another post here) This is a silver micro glitter which even goes with gold is really flattering and great for a night out, I wore this over the Christmas period and New Year's and everyone was complimenting me. I do find that some glitters look childish and I can't stand chunky glitter but buying this as a glitter virgin, it has convinced me to venture out and buy a couple more glitter polishes. The brush makes it easy to apply and one coat would suffice but for the ultimate glitter nail apply two coats and then a top coat (Seche Vite for me) and you're done. 

Any recommendations for new polishes? Especially berry shades as I can imagine I'll be craving a new one soon...
