NOTD: China Glaze For Audrey, Julep Michelle & LA Girl Celebrate

Another day, another Nail Of The Day post. Now it's so secret that I'm a big fan of accent nails. Almost every time I paint my nails I have to add in an accent nail - whether it be a contrasting or complimentary colour, or throwing in a little glitter. But this week, I decided to go all out and do all three, haha!

So for my accent nails this week I used Julep's Michelle nail polish. This is the first time trying out Julep nail polishes before and I was quite impressed with the formula/consistency and the opaqueness of the polish. I thought the shape of the polish was quite odd but very unique looking, and because of this I assumed it would be difficult to work with. Fortunately, it was extremely simple to apply and is actually easier than a few other polishes I've used! I'm definitely intrigued and wanting to try more!

L.A Girl Glitter Addict in Celebrate was also a lovely surprise. I find that most glitter polishes are a hit or a miss, and I'm thankful that this one is a HIT! The mixture of both chunky glitter and colourful iridescence makes this polish perfect for either layering or used as a top coat. I could certainly see myself sporting this glitter polish alone, as it's just so lovely to look at. 

And of course China Glaze's For Audrey is a winner, there's no need to harp on about how lovely it is as it's been said too many times, haha.

Thank you so much for reading! Again, I would like to apologise for the inconsistent posts and the lack of replies on my behalf. I've been focusing on studying for my upcoming exams, so I haven't been able to jump on blogger as much (or at all) during the past week or two. But not to worry, I will definitely be back to normal as soon as I'm done with exams. Oh and I'm also going on a little holiday right after exams as well and you know what that means right? SHOPPING!...so maybe a haul post coming up?? Haha, there goes my spending ban. Anyway, enough waffle, back to studying!

Hope you've all been well and I'll speak to you soon xo
