The dress I am wearing is black with some lace on the sleeves so I wanted a bit of sparkle or a metallic finish to my nail polish and these are the three I have found from my collection.
After getting married in September I am trying to cut back my spending so would prefer to use something I have. The first one up is a Barbara Daly for Tesco's that I got in the summer now this was either £4 or £5 (see I don't even look at prices properly), and the colour is Very Violet. I have used 2 coats on the nail and it does go on really well, I wear this on my toes loads and it does last well. It has a very small brush which isn't great when you are trying to apply it. The colour is a lovely deep violet, with hints of blue sparkle/glitter which the picture doesn't pick up very well. I will be wearing this a lot more now we are into winter. As I would quite happily wear this on a day-to-day basis (navy is a particular favourite colour of mine). Now this would work great with a new Collection 2000 eyeliner pen I got from Superdug the other day.
Next is another bargain polish from E.L.F in Royal Purple for £1.50 I have a couple of these polishes and I have seen some new colours I would like to try. I actually love this colour sooooo much I wore it on my toe's for my wedding (I wore peep toe shoe's)I don't find the brushes great to use on E.L.F nail polish and I need to normally use 3 coats to get a colour I like. Now I find that this lasts really well on my toe's and I currently have it on at the moment.
Lastly I have a nail polish I got free with Cosmo last month from Misguided in Misfit. This is very much a Christmas nail varnish as it is black with gold glitter in it. I used to 2 coats on the nail and it went on well (but you really do need at least 2 coats for it to look right), in some lights as well it can look a bit khaki on the nails.
I have no idea which I will wear and knowing me I will end up getting another colour! But so far out of the three the I would rank them as
- Barbara Daly
I will try to do an NOTN, OOTN and FOTN if I don't hate them when I go out so you can see how it all looked in the end.
