The perfect finishing touch to any outfit….a manicure!

A manicure…something so small yet it can make you feel like a million dollars! There is no better feeling than when you have just had your nails done and you feel ready to go out and paint the town red. I don’t feel ready to go or that my outfit is complete without a fabulous manicure to go with it!

These days there are so many options….you can give your self a DIY mani at home or go to the salon for a bit of pampering (my personal fave)… we all need a little “me” time  so why not pop down to your local nail salon and enjoy relaxing for an hour or so and at the end of it you will come out looking and feeling FABULOUS!

There are so so many colours and styles to choose from now that you will never get bored. You can go bright in summer and really make your nails POP!




Or go for some more neutral or darker colours in the colder months to match your winter wardrobe…you can never go wrong with a pale pink or nude, especially for the working week!







Shellac is my new favourite obsession. You can do your own at home if you buy the set or the salon will do it for you. It is an amazing revolution… it stays on for between 2 and 3 weeks and DOESN’T CHIP, thats right ladies no chipping! Have you ever painted your nails before and only days if not hours later it begins to chip? Well you can kiss goodbye to that now… ask the salon if you can try shellac next time you are in there, you will be amazed by the results!!!

Not only can you just have plain, old colours on your nails now, there are HEAPS of different designs and effects, shatter, glitter, bling, patters, pictures and so much more… check out some of the options below.

I love the metallic option for a fun night out or to jazz up an outfit. Give it a go!

This would be perfect for a new years eve party!

OPI have released this great shatter nail polish. It is available in black or white and can be put over the top of any other coloured OPI polish. As seen above it gives a “shatter” affect

I am LOVING this “caviar” look…it can be done in most colours. I think the black looks so dramatic and wonderful! Gives a real WOW factor!

These nail strips/stickers are available in a few brands now and come in a heap of colours, patters, designs and pictures with everything from animal print, to flowers, to glitter and much more. They are an easy and different alternative to polish and last about 2 weeks

My personal fave nail polish is OPI, it is good quality and lasts the longest and they have a HUGE range of colours. So ladies… go get your next manicure very soon…Remember it’s the small things in life that can make us feel wonderful!

What’s your favourite colour to sport on your nails?

Do you do your own manicures or go to the salon?

Stay Fabulous!

    Hi! I’ve been looking for a pink nail polish like the one in the 4th nail-photo. Could you tell which color it is?

      Oooh sorry Theresa I’m not too sure exactly what shade it is but if you go on the OPI website you can view all the colours on there by group ie pink, red, etc so hopefully you can match it up 🙂
