It’s that time of year, the time of year where we’re updating our summer to autumn wardrobe, we’re leaving our summer dresses at home and we’re trying to wear this season’s jackets and kimonos! Now’s the time ladies, to update and spring (or should we say autumn) clean your nail polish and nail colour collections.
Usually tend to go for manicures or acrylics? Have some fun and do it yourself, with so many new colours on the market… at great prices, both on the high street and online, you would be silly not to have a little experiment! With lots of funky bright colours available, not forgetting Shatter and Crackle nail technologies – D.I.Y. Nails couldn’t be easier.
What’s hot this season? Could it be the colours of the rainbow?
Essie have announced the launch of their new range ‘brazilliant’. All shades are just perfect for this autumns upcoming colour trends, but my choice is Too Hot Hot – a sizzling rich red. I already have this on our “to buy” list for as soon as it becomes available.
Revlon, for me have always been a great contender in the nail colour department! They launched a limited edition scented nail range a while back, and I can’t get enough of them. My favourite is Mad About Mango, a soft light coral, (and yes it smells like mango) you’ll be sure to see this on everybody’s nails this year, together with Scented nails in Beach.
Barry M Instant Effect Nails in Pink is the best pink crackle style nail colour that I have found, aside from OPI. It oozes quality and great value for money – at only £3.99 from Superdrug. This shade is on-trend for the summer, autumn and winter and will last you right through to early 2016 if it’s mixed with darker purples, fushias and even blacks. Take a trip to you local Superdrug to see what other Barry M nail colours are for sale.
OPI, my darling OPI. A love hate relationship, I love their products, but I hate their prices! Some however, are the exception, and are well worth investing in – if you want to be ahead of the style game, you have to be willing to pay to get there, and I feel that OPI in Gargantuan Green Grape matte edition is worth paying for. It’s available for £10.50 at John and Ginger online. If that is a little to steep for you, why not go for OPI in Sparrow Me The Drama from MOD Cosmetics at only £8.99 (postage is free if you spend over £25).
I could blather on and on about every single one of our recommended nail colors for this season, but I would bore you to tears! But please do take a look for yourself and keep in mind – Ciale Paint Pots, Andrea Fullerton Nail Boutique, 17 Supreme Shine, Model’s Own and Nails Inc. Choose them in the colours above and you should remain on-trend and be stocked up until well into 2016!
