I paint my nails myself, I’ve never been and had any sort of extensions or gels. My nails are natural and I’m proud of them… Not so when they break right in the quick but let’s hope they don’t do that for a while or else they’ll all have the chop 🙈
So here’s this week’s look
Taken out in my garden as there was sunlight and needed to take advantage of it.
These are the nail varnishes used and I love the 60 second ones from Rimmel.
The technic one is very old but still adds a little something to a plain colour.
I reckon the price was about £9 for all 3 so that’s alot cheaper than going to the salon.
I fancied giving my nails a quick pampering and had a nosey in my vanity case…… This where I keep all the nail varnishes I’ve picked up and are still useable. Nothings worse than finding one you used to love and its separated.
The 3 I picked to get the look above which was really quite easy were:
Rimmel/ Rita Ora -Plump up the purple
OPI – Kiss me on my tulips
Loreal – le French manicure liner
Firstly I pained the ring fingers pink with the OPI Kiss me on my tulips because we have all done it before when we want to do this kind of look and accidently paint them all the same colour.
Next I paint the rest of my nails with Rimmels Plump up the purple which usually I don’t go for dark colours but thought why not.
Last of all I take Loreal le French manicure pen and do random dots on each nail to give it that je ne sais quoi.
I really like the look and it took all of 10 minutes to do.

I wanted something that reflected my personality so I went for some super girly colours. I also cut about half an inch off them as they were getting way too long.
To get the base colour I used one of my favourites: Rimmels Go wild-er-ness by Rita Ora. This time of year I love pastels. It gives amazing coverage and you only need one coat of it too.
For the French tip look I chose Rimmels Lycra Pro Professional Finish In Pop Rose. Without a guide for my tips I think I did ok.
Here is my nails after 10 days. Baring in mind I’ve been packing boxes as I’m in the process of moving I don’t think that they’ve took too much of a bashing.
They can be found at your local Boots or Superdrug or you can find them online.
Amazon do some amazing nail polishes from different brands at affordable prices.
