Nails Of The Day #1 – Confettis Friday

TGIF – it’s Friday. So I wanted to do some special nails today. 

I love wearing something on my nails – it brings some life and a little colour in this grey time – yes it’s still freezing, grey and rainy in the beginning of March, at least where I’m from! 

So I wanted to do a little nail-spa for myself. I begin my little nail-spa-hour by taking some cuticle remover, in this case I used Sally Hansen Gel Cuticle Remover. I found this in the sales a couple weeks ago, and this was the first time I used it. After the cuticle removing part, which takes about 3 minutes, I then take and apply a base coat. Base coats prevents the colour from the nail polish to rub of on your nails – you can otherwise get yellow nails and that ain’t pretty – so if you are a daily user of nail polish I would recommend that you use a base coat. The base coat I’m using is the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener I find that this works well for my nails – you can use this both as a base coat but also as a polish by its self. When this has dried I then take the colour of my choice in this case Maxfactor Glossfinity in Angel Nails. I love this polish, it’s one of my favourites! You can in  use this every season – Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn. It is a silvery gold colour – me likey. I have another colour from this brand and formulation and I plan to get more, I love the formulation – You get glossy nails for up to 7 days, as it says on the bottle. At this point, normally, I just apply a clear top coat from Sally Hansen Double Duty. But a couple a weeks ago I found this little beauty L’orรฉal Paris Color Riche in 916 Confettis. This just spice it up a bit. I use the trend of only applying this on two fingers, because I really adore that look. For some reason it’s like my hands screams for hand cream after I’ve applied nail polish, therefore I take my all time favourite cream from Nuxe Hand and Nail Cream which I actually did a post on here.
So, this is my nails of the day. What is yours? And what are your favourite nail polish at the moment? Tell me on the comments beeeloow! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cute nails! I love using the Nuxe Hand and Nail cream as well. The scent isn't too strong and it absorbs fairly quickly. Win win!

    The more I read other posts and blogs that feature nails, the more I'm convinced I should go get a base coat. I use OPI Nail Envy followed by 2-3 coats of polish and sometimes use a topcoat, although the one I'm using doesn't seem to prevent chipping =/

    Thanks for sharing your blog link with me during the #bbloggers chat, I see you've just started but your posts are great and detailed. I'm excited to see more from you!
