I spent last week with ‘naked nails’. I didn’t really like them and it felt a bit strange to look down and not see any colour on my nails but I decided to have a little nail varnish break for some much-needed pampering. I applied various oils and creams to my nails and cuticles daily and they now feel lovely and soft. I would definitely recommend this for a little nail ‘treat’ every now and then if, like me, you tend to experiment with different nail varnishes and nail art regularly.
This week’s manicure is definitely a bright pop of colour and my first time trying out an Illamasqua nail varnish. I received the shade Gamma in one of their ‘mystery boxes’ which is a bright, almost neon orange.
This colour is even brighter on the nails than it is in the bottle. I painted them in bed with my sidelight on and it was only when I was driving to work the next morning and saw the colour outside in daylight that I realised just how bright it is! I think this will look amazing with a tan.
I decided to add on a few lemon nail decals for a fun twist and sealed the look with a very generous coat of Seche Vite.
