Today I decided I needed super feminine 'sugar plum fairy' nails instead of the deep autumnal tones I have been going for recently.
My eyes instantly fell on Barry M Rose Quartz as it's just such a lovely girly glitter without being too much. Which I decided to pair with Sinful Colors Easy Going. I also decided I need an accent nail with Essie Beyond Cozy which I really need to get a full size bottle of before Christmas!
To start my manicure I applied just two coats of Sinful Colors Easy Going (£1.99 - Boots here) which was enough as the polish is perfectly opaque for such a light pastel pink. I feel I should point out that I love Sinful Colors oh so much since they launched in Boots stores. They have so many shades (including amazing glitters) and the consistency and finish can't be fault - amazing for £1.99. I'm also sure the range is on 3 for 2 in Boots making 3 polishes only £3.98 at the moment!
I then applied a single coat of Barry M Rose Quartz (£3.00 - Amazon here) to all my nails bar my two accent ring finger nails. Barry M was the brand that first got me into glitter nail polishes as they just have so many vivid packed glitters that cover the whole nail.... however I actually think my favourite glitter from Mr. Barry M has to be Rose Quartz as it's just so pretty with it's slight rose gold hue.
To finish I applied two coats of Essie Beyond Cozy to my ring fingers, which is a mini bottle that came in the Essie Winter 2012 set (now discontinued). And actually my favourite from the set/collection... super sparkly and ideal for Christmas. This is nearly all used up now so I will be getting the full size ASAP for the bargain price of £3.99 from eBay here.
I'm so pleased with how these nails look, especially the accent nail which adds a bit more interest.
Happy, pretty nails!
