Nail Envy

Nail art is such a big thing now and yet I struggle to paint my nails without smudging them. I have not been very adventurous with my nails but have been very much inspired by my friend Alex from  Tecnicolornails

I tent to buy cheap nail varnis and hove found George at ASDA to be very hard wearing with a great range of colours and very cheap!

Glitter has not been part of my nail wardrobe since I was 15 years old but I saw this in the Pound Shop for £1 obviously and thought it looked quite festive. I am glad I tried it and will be wearing it over the Christmas period over a red or blue base. It is not a brand I have heard of but for £1 I can't complain about it at all.

Here is the glitter polish with an Asda George £1 base and clear top coat. All these polishes cost a total of £4 and I love the finished look. It is a lot of faffing waiting for coats to dry but it is worth the wait.

I also picked up these stripped nail wraps/stickers. I have seen lots of these in Boots and Superdrug but for £4= and was wary of trying them for fear of messing up. For a £1 I thought I would try it and found it to be super easy. I even stuck one on a little squint and pulled it off to try again without a problem. I am on my second day of wearing them and they don't seem like they are going to peel off any day soon so I am very impressed and will be on the look out for more designs to try out.

Plus they matched my glasses! Just goes to show that you don't have to spend a fortune to have cute nail art. Have you tried these? What brands do you like?

  1. Ooh love the look of the glitter polish on it's own and over the black. I hadn't worn glitter polishes since my mid teens, either, but have been overdosing on them recently. I like to use Barry M more than any other (I'd recommend the Ruby Glitter), and MUA are cheap and cheerful, too. Inglot are my fave to splurge on :)

  2. I tried a Barry M years ago but found it needed lots of coats so didn't try any of the others :/ I have never heard or Inglot! Will have a look for it. Thanks x
