If you’ve followed and read my blog, then you definitely know that I’m a sucker for nail polishes. I love taking care of my nails and I like them always looking sleek.
During the Spring and Summer I tend to step away from my beloved burgundy and deep red, which are my go-to choices for the colder seasons, and pick more lively colors like white, light pink, orange, purple, light blue and mint.
There are different brands that I like and that I’ve discovered with time.
To me a nail polishes have to be smooth, have a good coverage, be shiny and don’t chip easily.
My favourite brands and colors are:
PRETTY WOMAN NYC*
I’ve worn this bright yellow for more than a week now, without any top coat because I’m a lazy old panda, and I have to say that I’m surprised it has chipped or lost its vividness.
I love this color and I think it’s so perfect for the Summer and its name is quite perfect itself: Brunch Queen.
Pretty Woman NYC sells a wide variety of nail polishes, which are smooth, bright and last-longing.
The drying process isn’t exactly fast, but not too long either.
The only flaw is that some of them, like All That & Dim Sum (the lightest cream shade shown below), are quite transparent and take a few coats to achieve full coverage.
ALL THAT & DIM SUM GIRL BOSS BLACK RASPBERRY
The purple shades are similar to one another but they differ in the nuance, I think they’re perfect all year long for a sober and elegant, yet original and colorful touch.
TRUST FUND BEAUTY*
These nail polishes are very easy to apply, they’re creamy and dry fast, resulting in a beautiful shiny look. They kinda look like gel nails, which I totally love but I’ve always been too afraid to do because of the damages they leave to the nails, so these Trust Fund Beauty goodies are the perfect solution.
ELEGANTLY WASTED DIRTY RICH WHAT’S A BUDGET?
I own way-too-many-to-count Kiko Milano nail polishes. They are definitely my favourite ones. They are affordable, with a shiny finish, they dry fast and don’t ruin easily. They also come in sooo many colours.
My favourite colours are the ones I use during the cold seasons, which are obviously reds:
I have always problems with my nails, not as bad as they used to be, but the recovery path is a long one and for now they still break and are a bit weak.
Nail care is very important for me and I’ve picked up valuable tips along the way, and discovered new good quality products.
My favourite ones now are from Colorama and Pretty Woman NYC.
I always use a combination of products: a nourishing nail polish to help my nails grow, a strengthening one, and argan oil drops to enhance flexibility – so the nails don’t chip or break – and nourish the cuticles.
Colorama offers such beautiful, high quality, vibrant nail polishes. I always buy a bunch of them when I go to Brazil because they’re also incredibly affordable.
Here are my favourite brands of nail polishes and my favourite picks for perfect nails all year long.
