Let me just start off saying that I don't tend to wear make-up/nail polish depending on the season - I usually will just wear whatever I feel like no matter the season (yeah I know I'm a rebel, heh). So today's post will be featuring my current favourite nail polishes - hereby meaning my most worn polishes or the polishes I will usually gravitate towards. It's no surprise that I'm a glitter/fun bright coloured nail polish wearing girl - I think this is mostly because I like to wear plain bold coloured clothing with subtle designs/patterns, which means I have to be creative through my nail polish!
The first three nail polishes that I constantly sport are from Essie. For some reason, I adore Essie's light/pastel polishes. I feel as though they are much better quality than other brands that have pastel colours and they are also much more opaque and long lasting.
A Cut Above: This is from Essie's Luxeffects collection which was a set of 5 multidimensional glitter top coats. Because they are top coats, they are intended to use on top of other polishes, but I think they also look quite good by themselves. A Cut Above is clear based polish with pink glitter and iridescence. The glitter in this polish comes in different sizes to add more a dramatic glitter affect to any nail polish look.
Haute As Hello: From the 2010 Summer collection, this polish is perfect for the Spring/Summer time as it's bright, fun and flirty. Haute As Hello compliments tanned skin perfectly as it makes the colour 'pop' even more as it does have a satin finish. If you're a lover of peachy/orange shades then this is the perfect shade for you!
Absolutely Shore: Another Summer Collection polish but from 2011, Absolutely Shore is a foolproof way to get into the warmer weather. This would also look gorgeous during Winter time to add a little colour to the drab weather. Absolutely Shore is described as a "pale, sea foam green" which is a very accurate description in my opinion.
Next up I have two China Glaze Polishes and one from OPI. These colours are more bold and eye catching when worn.
China Glaze's For Audrey: This polish was originally released by China Glaze as part for the 2007 limited edition collection called Something Blue (Tiffany & Co. inspired), but because of the popular demand for this it became a part of the permanent line. If you're looking for the perfect robin's egg blue shade then look no further - For Audrey dries with a creme finish that is able to suit any body looking for the perfect Tiffany blue colour.
China Glaze's First Class Ticket: Released in the Vintage Vixen 2010 Collection, First Class Ticket is a gorgeous dark vampy blue toned purple. At first, it does look like a dark navy blue, but when applied onto the nails, it uncannily looks purple. This polish has gorgeous blue micro glitters/iridescence which can be seen in direct sunlight.
OPI's Dim Sum Plum: From the OPI 2010 Hong Kong Collection, this polish (as the name suggests) is a cool pink toned plum creme. This is one of the shades I will always go back to and wear as it just compliments my skin tone (and probably a lot of others as well) amazingly.
And lastly, I have a few miscellaneous polishes from various brands that I certainly could not live without. Of course I have to include more glitter polishes and two bright and fun shades.
L.A Girl's Celebrate: Perfect for laying over another polish, Celebrate is a gorgeous mixed glitter polish. With having both large chunky glitter pieces as well as finely milled iridescence this is the type of polish you should be wearing when you're in the mood for partying.
Butter London's Trout Pout: From the Summer 2012 collection, Trout Pout is a gorgeous coral pink creme. This definitely a great shade to wear during summer as it's bright and fun, but still subtle enough to get away with being pastel-y.
Essence's Blue Addict: This Essence polish is a blue jelly consistency with different sized hexagon glitter of different tones of blue and green. It is renown to be the perfect dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Across The Universe for just a smidgeon of the price.
Sally Hansen's Blue Me Away!: From the Xtreme Wear Collection, Blue Me Away! is the perfect sky blue creme. It's extremely vibrant and the colour perfectly suits the spring/summer weather.
I hope you guys enjoyed my selection of favourite nail polishes at the moment. Let me know what some of your favourites, I would love to try out a few new polishes once I get off my spending ban! Thanks for reading & have an amazing day!
