It's Just Another Mani Monday #01

Monday, March 02, 2015

Is it me or do you just start singing "It's Just Another Manic Monday" in your head? Probably just me :) Okay so I am realllyyyyyy sorry for being such a naughty blogger. I have been so busy it's mental, literally mental. It will all be detailed in another post shortly. 

This post however, is the first in a new series I am starting on my blog called... yup you guessed it 'It's Just Another Mani Monday' like what I did there? As I am always changing my nail colour, more often than not its usually 2 or 3 times per week I thought I would do a post of what nail shade I am wearing each week, of course I will be reviewing the nail polish too. Now I am some what of a "Plain Jane" when it comes to nails, I do experiment with colours (kind-of) but I never do anything too crazy. I usually rotate between a handful of shades mainly being nudes, reds, plums, pinks and the occasional french mani, I have quite a few polishes under each shade that are very similar but different - so I thought I would share my favourite ones and it might encourage me to experiment a little to try new shades that I wouldn't usually go for.

So this weeks polish is by Maybelline New York and is from the Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour range. I personally LOVE this range, the polishes are easily applied and have a lovely thick and glossy finish - just like gel obvs and they come in a beautiful range of colours. I tend to buy my nude shades from this collection as they have quite a few different shades which are all beautiful, this shade is Rose Poudre 130 which is a subtle pinky-nude. If you have seen the YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick this is very similar to shade 01 and is the perfect combination when wearing that lipstick. 

This nail polish is really easy to apply and has a brush that has a squ-oval end which makes it easier for applying polish near your cuticles. I always apply two coats, mainly out of force of habit but you can wear this polish using only one coat as the colour is just as pigmented as with two.

Please excuse the horrible childish fingers, I recently took off nail extensions (naughty I know as they RUIN your nails - don't do it) and my nails are all breaking which is why they are so short. But I absolutely ADORE this colour, I have actually been using this shade for about 3-4 years and I always re-purchase this. The good thing is Maybelline is sold in most supermarkets so I can always pick one up when I am doing my food shop :) I think I picked this up for about £4.50ish but usually you can get this on offer where you can buy two for £8, bargain! 

As you can probably tell I love this nail polish collection as well as colour, if you are a lover of nude polishes (like I am) I would definitely recommend having this in your nail polish collection.

What are your nail polish recommendations? Are there any shades that you keep going back to?
