Favourite Nail Polish: August 2012!

There's something about a freshly polished mani-pedi that gives you that extra boost to your outfit and makes you feel all dolled up. This month I have been switching between two of my new summer faves.
 If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen me tweet about my new find from Barry M. 'Blue Moon' is a very pretty powdery baby blue, which has me constantly looking down at my nails (I am actually wearing it as I write this post!). I am a big fan of the Barry M nail paints anyway and own quite a few, they are so affordable and have a gorgeous range of colours, and this is no exception. It is very similar to Essie's 'Borrowed and Blue' although prehaps a tiny bit darker. The wear of these nails paints isn't always the best, but I have actually been quite impressed with this one. Two coats and a top coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri and it has stayed chip free for a few days now. 

My other fave has been Essie's 'Risky Business', a bright- brrright reddish orange, which looks amazing on both finger and toe nails. This is such a statement colour and really pops against the skin. Admittedly, this is sheer and does take a few coats to get that 'colour in the bottle'  shade, but it is so worth it, and as these polishes dry so quickly, its really no bother to me. Beautiful for a night out or summery day, (and looks amazing with gold or tan flip flops!) this has been on my nails a lot this month. 

What has been your favourite nail polish recently? Do you like to perfectly match or clash your fingers and toes?

  7. I love the Barry M Blue Moon, I am wearing it now actually! I also love the Essie colour you have here, I really want this Essie colour along with Fiji. Sometimes I match my feet and hands, but I often find my toe nails last longer than the paint on my finger nails, hehe. Ooh, I want to follow you on twitter now :) xo

  8. I like the red color. ^^
    I don't really can color my nail evenly all the time. I wonder how you guys could coat it so evenly.
    haha :)
