Manicure Monday ~ Spring Sunnies

Manicure Monday

I can not believe that next week it’s April and even more shocking that Easter is next week Friday. Time seems to be moving so fast for me that I have not yet had a chance to blink, but then again they do say ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ which I still am. I have not yet decided what I want to do for Easter or where to even spend it (Boo or parents) but one thing I do know is I need to have me a manicure done ASAP.

The last time I shared a manicure monday post was December 2014 when I shared my Red polish I had had done at a manicure parlour in readiness for Christmas. I kid you not it’s been that long since I last had my nails done, I have been so consumed in myself that my nails have been suffering big time. I have decided to get my nails done professionally only because at the moment I want something that will last me for 2 months at least as I will soon be going on a spending freeze.

I decided I pick out a few colours I want to try out, some I have tried in the past and loved them and some I have not but I am eager to try. I am usually not one to conform to the normal when it comes to nail polish colours and by that I mean during V-day I refuse to wear red nail polish just because its V-day colour or even spring I usually define choosing ‘springy’ colours but this time I just want these colours because I think they are cute and nothing to do with the season.

Aqua blue nail polish
£5.97 –

NYX teal nail polish
£5.71 –

Lauren B Beauty teal nail polish
£12 –

Black nail polish
£14 –

I am loving all these teal colours and I can not wait to see what they will look like once I get my nails done. Teal has become one of my favourite colours and I want to have that in my home (more on this another time). It is such a warm colour and just brings freshness to mind when I look at it.

What do you think of Teal as a colour? Do you get your manicure professionally done or do it yourself?

    I love the aqua nails! I am a bog fan of blues, especially blues that look like the ocean!

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:08 am

      I so know what you mean I like both sky blue and ocean blue too

    I love all of these colors. I love how they shimmer and look on the nails. They are perfect for this time of year and the colors I wear.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:06 am

    I like that pink. It is nice and sunny and reminds me of Spring.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:06 am

      Anything that reminds me of sun and/or spring is on my watch list for future wear lol

  12. March 23, 2015 / 8:16 pm

    Teal is a great color. It’s one of my favorites! I need to try some new colors next time I go have my nails done.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:06 am

      It really is a beautiful colour

  13. March 23, 2015 / 5:14 pm

    The last time I got my mails down was also around Christmas (whoops!) I guess because it was winter and I was wearing gloves all the time I just decided to save the manicure money. Now that it’s spring (and summer is coming in a few months,) I definitely want to start back getting my nails done. Cute colors <3

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:05 am

      I am the same, the gloves kinda hid the wear nails I have for the last couple of months.

    I love all those colors actually! Teal is my favorite color, but I’ve never painted my nails that color actually. I tend to go for bright pink/orangey colors since that goes with most of my clothes.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:05 am

      I am only venturing into it now and I am not that much into orange colours but I do love me some pink

  15. March 23, 2015 / 3:16 pm

    I have a blue exactly like those ones and I love it! It’s so bright and cheery.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:04 am

      I couldn’t agree more so beautiful so cheery indeed

    I love this teal color! I’ve never used a color like this on my hands, but it’s about time!

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:04 am

      Teal is so pretty, hope you try it

    I’m digging the pink Opi nail polish, but the blue and teal look awesome as well. I should try more colors outside my usual red hues.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:03 am

      I have only recently started stepping out of my usual reds and I am loving it

    These colours are awesome! I have been waiting for Spring to make my mood colourful again and I think you have finally influenced me to paint my nails! It has been a while

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:03 am

      Spring is here and let the rain of colours begin

    Love all these colors! i am so glad Spring is here and my nails can be colorful again!

  20. March 23, 2015 / 7:39 am

    I love teal as a great spring colour. I’m all about the pinks and corals when the sunshine hits.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:02 am

      I love corals and a couple of pinks but Teal is my new fav

  21. March 23, 2015 / 6:52 am

    Manicure Mondays = awesome. I need to do my nails, it’s been over 2 weeks since i had anything on them! Crazyness.

    • March 27, 2015 / 11:02 am

      It’s crazy how fast time moves and how forgetful we become when it comes to nails lol
