Nail Polish Battle 2014: Black + Silver

Every year I do a battle of the nail polish, this year I have changed it up to using only new polishes for 2014. That way I can go through the polishes much easier. On to today's battle, looking at black and silver polishes;

 Pretty - Leather Look // Essence - Black is Black // Leighton Denny - Steel Appeal // Barry M - Espresso // Nails Inc - New York Noir

While I really liked the brush on the Essence polish the one coat opacity of the Nails Inc makes it the winner. Which is a shame because it was free with a magazine!


Moving on to the silvers, I didn't get many this year!

CK - Silver Streak // Barry M - Silver Foil Effect

The winner is the Barry M, because it is much less streaky and as an added bonus it is great for stamping with.

Nails: Lela Rose AW 2014 Inspired

I find inspiration everywhere for nails and so finding it in fashion isn't something new. The particular inspiration I used was a dress from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014, and a Lela Rose dress.

Nails: St. Patrick's Day 2014

Way back in 2011 I did some St. Patrick's Day nails (here and here) then I did some Pot of Gold ones in 2012. That brings us to last year and the nails that I did were a little bit of a stamping disaster here. Finally these are my 2014 St. Patrick's Day Nails:
