Kiko 372 Nude Nail Varnish
This is another of the polishes I got in the Kiko sale in France (2.50 Euro per polish… it would’ve been rude not to take advantage of that so I got loads!)
Kiko 372 Nude nail varnish is a creamy blush coloured polish with more than a hint of grey (and regular readers will know how I feel about grey!) I really like this barely-there polish, it is so classy without being boring and will go with absolutely any outfit.
This nail varnish needed 2 fairly thick coats to get full coverage, but Kiko polishes always apply and dry very well so that wasn’t a problem. This is shown topped with Seche Vite.
You can get Kiko polishes HERE.
Pacific Rapsodi 12 Nail Varnish
Rapsodi is a Turkish brand that I had never come across before until I saw these polishes (they own Gabrini as well – a brand I have raved about before). I have only seen these nail varnishes in one wholesale beauty shop that’s in North London and I now have to go get some more of these neons as this is just beautiful. And it was 99p. BRILLIANT.
OPI Eurso Euro Nail Varnish
The Euro Centrale collection is turning out to be one of my favourites from OPI. I totally fell in love with the nail varnish names from the beginning but the polishes have really grown on me after swatching,
‘Eurso Euro’ is a dark indigo creme polish. It is a lovely vibrant colour but it was quite a thin formula, I had to be careful not to flood my cuticles, but surprisingly it still only needed two coats. This is topped with Seche Vite.
You can buy this beautiful polish HERE and you can see my swatches of some other nail varnishes from the collection here: Polka.com, Vant To Bite My Neck, I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw, You’re Such A Budapest, My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours.
Rimmel 332 Baby Pink Nail Varnish
Today’s swatch is Rimmel’s excitingly named (!!) ‘Baby Pink’: a pretty bright Barbie pink creme polish.
This is two coats with Seche Vite on top (as always). I’m not a massive fan of baby pink but this is bright enough for me to quite like it!
This polish range is no longer widely available, but has been replaced with the Rimmel Salon Pro range which is great. You can see the current range HERE. If you want this EXACT polish, you can still find it online HERE (please note I’ve never bought from that particular website so I’m not sure on delivery or quality).
Seventeen Pastel Gradient Nail Art
These were done using Seventeen Lasting Fix polishes in ‘Woo Me’ (lilac) and ‘Fairy Cake’ (baby pink). I love doing gradients, they are so fun. You can treat yourself to some Seventeen nail polishes HERE.
Plus, I am LOVING my new shape. My nails are making me so happy at the moment (I am sad, I know. Don’t mock me).
I did a tutorial for a gradient nail art manicure, which you can find HERE.
