Metallic Manicure Monday!

IMG_1329Metallic colours; you either like them or you don’t.

IMG_1334I like metallic effects when I’m out and about and don’t really mind if it matches my outfit. I also enjoy metallic colours more during the winter months because they glimmer and shine when just a speck of light hits them and really brighten up a dreary day. This time I felt a little too old for the whole metallic thing…

IMG_1328I was suddenly very aware of the fact that my nails were bright purple and would shine no matter how you held them to the light. It was a very pretty colour, but left me feeling too self-conscious to really pull it off. I ended up removing it within the week (and replacing it with a similarly “out-there” colour 😉 I never learn…)

IMG_1327Nevertheless, I’m still very impressed with Nails Inc.’s quality of polish. They have yet to disappoint! 🙂

Have a great Monday!

Manicure Monday: FEATHERS

IMG_1086Feathers. Very “I believe I can fly” or “Gone with the Wind”.. or, well, actually they are just feathers. Painted on to my nails. Wings not included.

IMG_1087This is yet another Nails Inc. special effect polish that I picked up while roaming the aisles of Sephora in Manhattan. I chose to wear it without a solid colour underneath, and the feathers definitely stuck out more that way.

IMG_1082A quick top coat and my nails were ready to dazzle… but I wasn’t too impressed. The manicure I was left with looked like that of a primary school child’s. Not too stylish, sadly. Next time I will pair it with a base colour and see if it is more pleasing.

Oh well, you can’t have it all!
