Goodbye, Black Nail Polish

In October I uploaded a Nail Polish Collection post. As I said in the post, I'm pretty boring when it comes to nail polishes and I like to stick to neutrals, purely because I find that they go with everything.

I've always been one for black nail polish. I find it works well with every outfit and, to be honest, I don't think it looks that bad as it starts to chip. It all adds to the look, right? Lately, however, I've been making a conscious effort to try to be more creative with my nail polishes and, as much as it pains me to say it, I love bright nail polishes! Who'da thunk it? 
My colourful nail polish collection started with California Coral, a polish that I received in a goodie bag at a recent hair show. To be honest, I think this was the colour that inspired me to be more adventurous with my nails. 
Maybelline Mini Colorama in #120 Urban Turquoise 
On a recent trip to Priceline I bought a Maybelline Mini Colorama nail polish in #120 Urban Turquoise. Once again, this has become a favourite of mine. I will be reviewing this nail polish in the coming weeks so look out for it.

A few weeks ago I was having trouble getting to sleep so, instead of feeling sorry for myself, I made a list of bright nail polishes that I'd love to add to my collection. Surprisingly, the next day I was lucky enough to receive a parcel from Ulta3 with six of their upcoming nail polishes. Perfect timing! I love every single one of those polishes and can not wait to share them all with you (I'm slowly getting photos of each colour as I change my nails, so stay tuned). 

My nail polish shopping list features a range of pastel and bright coloured polishes and is as follows- 
  • Barry M Nail Paint in Blueberry Icecream
  • Essie Mint Candy Apple
  • Essie Bikini So Teeny
  • Essie Turquoise & Ciacos
  • Essie Tart Deco 
  • Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
  • Sally Hansen I Pink I Can
  • Maybelline Urban Yellow
  • Maybelline Ultraviolet 
  • Wet 'n' Wild Megalast Nail Colour in I Need a Refresh-Mint (ordered off eBay and waiting for it to arrive) 
  • Wet 'n' Wild Megalast Nail Colour in Club Havana 
  • Wet 'n' Wild Megalast Nail Colour in Tropicalia 
A couple of these colours seem similar to those I received from Ulta3, so I may be able to cull a couple from my list but, as I'm sure you can imagine, I'l be able to add more in their place.

So, people, that's my commitment to brighter nails. What are your favourite nail polishes at the moment? Are you a bright, pastel or neutral person? Please leave your recommendations below! I've caught the nail polish bug!

Always look your best,

  1. My favourite to wear is bright blue...the colour blue that is equivalent to Barbie pink. Bright polishes make you feel happy :)
