Manicure Monday: Embracing Spring

Normally, when it comes to my nails I stick to basic colours and it's either dark or nude. Usually, it's not anything in between but sometimes I get the urge to make my nails girly and fun, then I usually do it, hate it and change it within the day. This happened with these nails. I thought they were cute and fun and I managed to last 1 day with them until I took them all off and painted them red. So basic.

I think I was trying to embrace the nicer weather starting to appear and a celebration of not having to de-ice my car this morning. I used Models Own Cornflower Gleam for the blue and it's a gorgeous powder blue that is perfect for spring. It's opaque in 2 coats and has quite a long-lasting time. Although it's one of those that if you chip it you can easily peel off the rest of it. It's part of the Models Own Hypergel range and supposed to last longer than normal nail varnish. I don't know if I can vouch for that, especially as I took this off within the day, but I've used others in this range and they are actually really good and have a very good lasting power. 

The yellow that I used on my ring finger is Daisy Days by Rimmel and it's part of the Rita Ora range. I love the Rita Ora range and Rimmel nail varnishes in general, they're cheap and amazingly pigmented. This again is opaque in two coats and will last generally 2-3 days.

Both of these colours are ideal for spring and will be beautiful on their own either way. I usually don't do my nails in the style of four nails one colour and another a different colour. I think that it's a cute look though and quite playful. I would really recommend these nail varnishes, they're both really good quality and super affordable. Find the Models Own Hypergel polish for £4.99 here and Rimmel 60 Seconds Supershine Rita Ora Collection here for £2.99.

Til' next time! XOXO
