Topic Tuesday: Favourite Nude Polishes

I'm not someone who wears a lot of nude polishes, looking at my collection I've chosen the top two I like.

Then and Now Throwback Nails: South Park

As today is a Thursday I am throwing back to some nails I did in 2010, and recreating them now 11 years later to see if I have improved! While I don't own all the exact polishes used originally, I have used similar colours.

000 Paint Brush
Dotting Tools
Rainbow Collection Silicone Mat

I think I have improved somewhat, but plenty of room for improvement. People, even cartoon ones are so hard to freehand!

To create these nails I used some standard nail art striping tape as well as a chevron tape to create the ruffles.

Nails: #SockItSelfie Eating Disorder Awareness Week

Eating Disorder Awareness Week runs from 27th February until 5th March 2017. This week also ties in to the National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness) in the States.

This year the theme is raising awareness of the importance of early intervention [more information here]. As usual the UK theme is sock it to eating disorders, and so here are my nails for my #SockItSelfie

Nail Polish Battle 2016: Nude and Grey Polishes

 Champanys - Nude // Nails Inc - Green Park Mews // Nails Inc - St Alban's Grove // Essie - Cocktail Bling // Barry M - Chai // OPI - Liv In The Gray // OPI - No More Mr Night Sky

While nude polishes have there place in my collection, they aren't something I prefer especially comparing them to darker colours. I really like the flat, curved cuticle brush on the Essie polish. It is a good opaque cream.

However Liv In The Gray is the winner, a dark grey colour which isn't dark enough to make it mistakable for a black.
