Pink Neutral Nails

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Shell we Dance

A quick post today. Just want to share what nail polish I've been wearing lately. This is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Shell we Dance. This is a pale sheer pink nail polish that is perfect for french manicure. It is also amazing on its own to give that 'your nails but better' look. With this one, you cannot expect to get full opacity tho. I think this colour is perfect for work and holidays as it will match everything you wear whatever the season. Nude nails are always in!

Revlon Parfumerie in Orange Blossom

If you've been here for a while you know that I am obsessed with Revlon parfumerie collection.  Today we're talking about Orange Blossom; a bright orange creme polish. I'm not going to talk about formula as I find the quality is the same with all polish from this range. Read my review herehere and here. Initially I bought this for nail art purposes although when worn alone it is beautiful and just summer appropriate. To be honest, I find this one has the strongest scent of all five that I own. It has this sweet citrus-y scent. I've used this several times on one of my finger and sometimes mixed with other polish to do my nail art and I can still notice the scent of this. Overall, another great buy from Revlon.

Paws and Claws Care Routine

Being a nail polish addict, it is inevitable that my nails get stained and weak over time. Therefore my paws need extra TLC to keep them looking healthy. I'd say my hand and nail care routine is really simple. Keep reading if you'd like to know my hand and nail care routine.

The Spring Appropriate Ombré

It has been a very long time since the last time I create an ombré mani. I find ombré manicure is the easiest and a never fail to impress kind of mani, but the whole cleaning up process is just nightmare. Anyway, I am back with one and this time I'm using some bright colours that are appropriate for spring. Yes! Spring is almost here and I'm really excited and the weather is getting warmer now actually.

Current Favourite Top Coat

I've used this topcoat for several months now and I can say this is my new favourite top coat! Essie Good to Go promises a fast drying result with high gloss finish and I completely agree with their claim. The drying time is not as quick as poshé topcoat which I previously used, but is still quicker than other fast-drying topcoat that I've tried. I also notice that it makes my mani stays chip-free for longer, although keep in mind that performance is different from polish to polish. As a nail art enthusiast, I find that this topcoat is really nice as it does not drag design and they help even out bumpy designs. What I mean with bumpy is when you put on glitter topcoat or you layer a lot of colours that your nail thickness is different.

Now the issue with most fast drying topcoat is that they often shrinks your manicure! I've tried several that do exactly that and it really bothers me. It is useless if they have amazing staying power but they just shrink your mani. However, I didn't notice any with this topcoat, my mani stays fresh for a good couple of days. Overall, I have to say this is my new favourite top coat and will continue to repurchase.
