This might sound a bit crazy, but since I’ve been wearing the leopard print coat I featured in a recent YouTube video, I’ve had a fascination with red lips and red nails. I feel like they complete the look and make me feel a bit glam!
I was looking through my nail polish collection and came across a beautiful red shade that I’ve never used before – the Nails Inc polish in Tate. I believe it came free with Glamour magazine a few months ago, but I seem to have neglected it until now!
I used my Barry M Base Coat, Top Coat and Nail Hardener as a base, and the Tate polish over the top.
I am planning to do reviews of each polish separately (keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of days!) so I won’t go into too much detail, but I think the finish speaks for itself (if you excuse my dodgy paint job!) I adore the glossy finish, and the shade is exactly what I was looking for.
I feel that red isn’t just a shade for Christmas – as we move into the later stages of winter I think red nails are still rock-able. If you want to change it up a bit, go for a different look than you usually would. For example, I wore red glitter nails over the Christmas period, but I’m now opting for classy, glossy reds.
Are you a red nail fan? Which polish do you like to use to add an injection of glamour to your look?
