Feather My Coral


Just a little quickie (not in that sense!) to show a bit love for the wonders a pretty little polish can do for your sense of wellbeing! Dramatic YES. But oh so true! Well it is for me anyway... Having painted nails is like wearing rose tinted specs... Everything seems better, just tilt your head to the side and cast an admiring glance over your bright shiny talons and BAM you look great! (Says she slobbing lounging around in mismatched pyjamas a slinky little number with sudocrem slapped on her spots! a full face of make up on!

So I love a manicure yes, and I knew I wanted to wear coral lips for the NE Body Shop Event so the evening before I decided to adorn my nails with a similar theme.

Polishes used were OPI Suzy's Hungary Again and Nails Inc Feathers Effect in Chester










The Opi polish is lovely bright salmon coral and it screams summer. The feathers effect works well over the top as the tiny flecks of orange yellow and turquoise really set off the colours. I've had a ton of compliments and people tend to ask if I've applied the titchy little flecks myself. I'm like "naaah its straight from a bottle this!" Looks clever though yes???





I have four feathers effect polishes but Chester is my favourite (that could change, notoriously fickle!), it looks lushy over OPI's A Grape Effect too doncha think?

Sorry this was taken a while back... the flash has blurred it somewhat but believe... it looks glorious


(At this point I should probably disclose I have a terrifying amount of nail polishes and its a collection that shows no sign of slowing up... hope my husband doesn't read this! TROUBLE!)

Anyway I'm off to shower and (maybe) wash hair and (definitely) repaint nails.... Can't possibly have same colour on for more than 48 hours!

Oh and its worth mentioning, the feather's, just like their glittery sister, are an absolute pain to remove (I believe the technical term is ball ache!). I find wrapping tin foil around a cotton pad soaked in remover for a good couple of minutes is the easiest way.

What colours are floating your boat right now? Any suggestions for todays nails?

As ever, thanks so much for reading, I reply to all comments :)

  11. Wow that's so lovely, feather is so lovely!! Does sound like a pain to take off though.

    Glad I'm not the only one who can't stand the same color nails for over 48 hours hehe

    My fav summer color right now is "Blue-Ming" by studio M, tiffany blue is my weakness.
