Nails Of The Day #1

Okay, okay, I've gone AWOL recently and neglected you all. I am such a shameful blogger, I don't know how you all put up with me - guessing it must be the charm and wit or somethin'. Anyhoo, as I have a super busy weekend, I am hoping to give you all some nice lifestyle-style posts next week. I realise I said pretty much the same thing on my last post, but I will deny myself cake if I don't do this for you, and I really don't wanna miss out on cake. 

Slightly missing the point of this post, I thought I would start another reoccurring subject matter - nails! I love painting my nails, although reading about everyone else's nail collection makes me feel less proud about my own. I digress, less of the woe, more of the show. (see what I did there? You don't all need to applaud at once!)

We're In It Together - Chalk Dust - Double Duty Base Coat
So I thought I would paint my nails in Essie's We're In It Together, gotta love a Glossybox freebie that you can actually put to use! My shoddy camera skills don't do it any justice at all, as it's a shimmery bubblegum pink. By itself I thought it looks a bit, well, sickly, and I didn't want that so I shot some Maybelline Color Show in Chalk Dust over the top. I've seen quite a few brands do this effect, and I've got say the Maybelline effort is definitely my fave, everytime I wear it someone compliments my nails. I know some pretty boring people. 


This is pretty much what it looks like on. I would normally do a 'statement' nail, but as I didn't want to look too princessy, I did the whole lot. I even did it on my other hand too! Have you got any of these colours? I'd love to see some other NOTD posts if you want to link me up in the comments!

    1. I'm surprised how nice it actually looks, thought I might have needed a darker base coat but no! :)
