Monday Currently ~ Manicure Monday x

20140517-235446.jpg

Hi there! Welcome to Monday Currently series, in the series today I am showing off my new manicure Monday and Nail polish. I did this myself and I know it ain’t too pretty but I still love it. The nail polish is Nude Pink which I got from my latest love me beauty box (see Wednesday’s post) May edition option 2. I am in love with the colour it’s so bright, though I am not girly girl I really love it and I am wearing it for 2nd time already.

This nail polish is by Nail Girls and love me beauty card describes it as;

An elegant nude with a hint of soft, sheet baby pink. A shade of style, sophistication and class

I must say I agree with the statement, the nail polish is just so pretty. So what are the pros and cons of this nail polish?

Pros – it’s really beautiful and does what it says on the tin.
Cons – I personally needed 3-4 coats to get that perfect pink shade I was looking for and also it took almost 45 minutes to really dry properly.
Recommendation: I would recommend it but have a base and top coat which I do not have. I would buy it again because it lasted me over 7 days.

Have you ever bought Nail Girls mail polishes before? How long do you keep or consider a nail polish good for? I think if it stays longer than a week then it’s good for me because I constantly wash my hands so I need a sticker than anything else.

 

Thanks for reading my blog Β and see you in my next manicure monday x

    Looks beautiful! I hardly ever paint my nails, but I think this would be the perfect color for a special occasion.

    I am too impatient to wait for nail polish to dry…which is probably why I never paint my nails…either that or the fact that I am a habitual nail biter. Either way, that color is perfection!

      Namesake I was busy moving up and down and was annoyed when they took that long to dry but only cause I put really thick coat and no base or top coat x

    Very pretty color, but I am not sure I could wait 45 minutes for dry nails! After 5 minutes I feel like I need to get moving again haha

      I was moving about after 2 minutes hence my frustration with the nail polish but am told with base/top coat it drys faster so maybe next time will do updated review x

    I’ve never actually tried this brand before, but they seem to be good quality and I love the colour you used here.

    • May 19, 2014 / 9:34 am

      Me neither this is my first time and I do love it so far x

    That is a super pretty color! I have never heard of that brand before. I gave my nails a new paint job Saturday night and mine will normally last a week or so, but I too am constantly having my hands in water or smacking them off of something. I generally use a hard as nails base coat for strength and an instant dry top coat, because I do good to get an hour to paint them let alone let them dry. Happy Monday! πŸ™‚

      Thanks Stacey happy Monday to you too, I really need to invest in some base and top coat x
