Cosmo is THE style Bible and I have been flicking through its pages for as long as I can remember. I just love it! So obviously when they said that one of the hot beauty trends for June is hot pink nails, I simply obeyed. Even though it is only May!!
For those of you not familiar with this Cosmo feature, they show you 3 beauty trends for the month and give you 3 options - Today... Payday... Oneday... I always like to have a little browse at the products and when I read that particular feature I thought "I'm sure I've got something in my collection that would work". Considering I am on a strict spending ban until I go to New York (Have I mentioned that I'm excited about that?? No, well I am!) I thought I would be good, even though their today option (Star Gazer polish in 104) was a meagre £2.
Anyway, I trawled through my abundant collection (oh dear, that's another post!) and came across this Nails Inc polish in China Town. Its a vibrant shocking pink, with a gorgeous sheen of blue iridescence running through it, which is probably not very clear in the picture. Its not a very "Leanne" colour at all. In all honesty, I prefer dark nail varnish, irrespective to the time of year. This little gem was lurking in the back, no doubt sourced from a fabulous QVCUK set and then quickly discounted. And given my recent "swapsies" with Nic, its lucky it survived in my collection at all! I gave it a go and to my total surprise, I love it even though my nails are probably a little too short at the moment to show it off fully. The weather was grey and miserable in Liverpool today, but my nail polish was as fresh and zingy as a spring morning.
I'm sure this would look equally lovely on tanned tootsies this summer in a pretty pair of sandals. Maybe I should try to be a little more adventurous with my colour choices. At the moment my dalliance with China Town is about as exciting as it gets...for now!
