Top 5: Nail Polishes
Now, I have quite a large nail polish collection so, whittling it down to just 5 favourites was no mean feat but, I think I have a good selection here! I'll include links to any posts I have wearing these shades!
Chanel Particuliére: Of all the Chanel polishes I have, this remains the stand out favourite. The colour, a muddy grey-brown, the consistency and the longevity are all spectacular. Most Chanel polishes wear terribly and don't live up to the high price point (Yes, I still buy them regardless!) but, Particuliére is worth the €21.50 and more in my opinion.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Red Zin: I have an entire post dedicated to this polish so, I won't witter on about it too much here! It is my perfect red nail polish and it is the only shade I have ever been known to remove after a week of wear and reapply. L-O-V-E.
Essie Ballet Slippers: This is possibly the best nude polish I own. I love Essie's formulation and Ballet Slippers is one of those cult shades that gets a lot of love in the beauty blogosphere and on YouTube. It's a pale, milky pink that just makes hands and nails look lovely and clean and ladylike. Ooh err!
OPI Russian Navy: It was a toss up between this and Chapel of Love from the same brand but, this won purely because it is more season-appropriate than the latter! Russian Navy is a really rich navy with royal blue shimmer throughout. It almost verging on black but, when it catches the light it's really something special.
China Glaze Pink Voltage: Not very seasonal but, I adore this nail polish! It's a true neon pink in a cream formulation that just brightens up any look. I loved wearing it on my toes during the summer but, it looks great on fingernails too, especially when wearing all black!
Let me know your favourite nail polish!
