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’oréal 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! 🙂

Have a really nice, wonderful and fun weekend! <3

    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!

    Thank you! 🙂 I LOVE this cream. I just love using a base coat, it evens the nail and prevents the nails from getting yellow 🙂
