Monday's Manicure

Currently listening to: Awake by Josh Groban

Hello girls!

Here it is, my first post of 2012, so let me wish you a very happy and prosperous new year!

A couple of you commented that you liked my previous manicure and thought my dad had good taste as he was the one who chose my base colour. While I did like the polish he chose, I didn't like the staining I was left with once I'd removed the polish. Blues are always troublesome for me to remove, especially as they sink in to any peels I may have in my nails. This was the case this time so I decided to file my nails right down and start another growth programme.

Here's my first manicure of the year using a red polish by the Polish brand Lovely.

I've had this polish for about four years and rarely use it but I think it looks good when my nails are this length.

As you can see, there are hundreds of flecks of glitter that sparkle in the light and prevent this polish from being dull.

And on the plus side, it's work-appropriate which is exactly what I need since I'll be back at work tomorrow. Is it too early for the January blues?

Bye for now,


  1. Yes you are so right, blue stains like crazy :)
    Your nails looks really good even at that short length ;)I like it! The polish is very pretty as well ;)

  2. The red is very pretty - a colour I'd choose too. And I really like the length of your nails. :)

  3. I always have really bad luck with staining from blue polishes! OPI's Swimsuit... Nailed It! stained my nails so badly that it's only growing out now, 4 months later! And that was with two coats of base coat. Shame cause it's such a gorgeous colour.
    Really liking the red on you :)

  4. very pretty and your nail shape is lovely! This color reminds me of Sinful Colors Forget Now.

  5. I wish my nails looked this good!

  6. @Theodora, thanks! I don't dislike my short nails as much as I have on previous occasions :-)

    @Rainbowify Me, thank you!

    @Polish and Charms, thanks! I think it is my favourite red out of my collection

    @Girlie Blogger, :-)

    @OPI Addict, 4 months of staining!!!! That is totally unacceptable! I'm actually in shock.

    @Roxanne, thank you :-)

    @daisychain, I'm sure they already do!

  7. pretty color. i love the sparkles in it...your application is always so flawless!!

    happy new year!


  8. my nails are peeling too and I hate it when the colours stain my nails even after a base coat!
    btw, love the nails n the colour:)

  9. @oomph, ha, I'm glad you think my application is always so flawless ;-)

    @Emm, thanks :-) I think I'm going to avoid blue polish for a while...
