New Year, New Nails

Monday, 6 January 2014

I'm not really one to do a 'beauty post' as such, as generally make up trends and beauty regimes are something I don't really keep up with or hardly have time for! That said I love nail polish and think it's a brilliantly simple and inexpensive way to change the way I look and feel, when I can't afford to buy the shed loads of clothes that I really want! I'm a big fan of classic red in Spring and Autumn, and in Summer I like to take it a notch brighter with more of a fluro red. But in Winter it's got to be a deep, dark red, verging on oxblood colour, don't you think?!

I don't normally splash out on expensive nail polish but it was Christmas and my lovely mum thought I was deserved of a treat so she bought me this wonderful YSL nail polish no.6 which is just the colour I was after. I spent Christmas eve drinking baileys and painting my nails (and watching Elf), which was just the sort of start to Christmas I needed!

Another nice little surprise was getting this Essie nail polish in Chinchilly in my stocking from my lovely husband (I mean Father Christmas!). I have to admit at first I wasn't sure, grey might be very on trend but would it look ok on me?! (I have enough grey sweatshirts by now, what was I worrying about!) And of course it's turned out to be very cool and I'm definitely into my grey nails right now... who'd have thought my husband would be blazing the trail for me in nail polish trends! 

So now I'm going to try and at least once a fortnight make time to give myself a mini manicure and colour my nails, a little bit of me time amidst all the chaos!
