I start a new job this week so wanted fairly neutral nails but with some personality. Hence why I chose this combination. the colour is stunning yet still professional and the glitter is delicately subtle.
First of all, yes I got a little over excited that my nails matches my phone charger so had to take a photo!
For me this is the most perfect summer colour. It is the perfect cross between a pink and a coral and would suit any skin tone!
And to make it even better it is from Nails Inc’s NailKale range which contains kale to nourish and strengthen the nail.
If you want a colour that you won’t want to take off all summer then this is the one!

I have watched her YouTube videos for a couple of years and am always inspired by her designs.
-NailsInc Black Taxi (Black)
-OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (Off White)
– NailsInc Notting Hill Carnival (Yellow)
– NailsInc Royal Botanical Gardens (Blue)
– NailsInc Hyde Park Square (Pink)
This took me only an hour from start to finish! A really easy nail design for the summer!
I held off on purchasing this colour for months due to it being considerably more expensive than the normal Nails Inc polishes!
I finally caved after seeing photo after photo of this colour and realising that I need it in my life!
This is the Judo White polish. The formula is fantastic, as with all of Nails Inc’s polishes, and the colour is the perfect mix between a white and a nude. Even though the price tag is pretty ridiculous (£25) this colour is spectacular!
I picked up a Nails Inc gift set in the sales. The main reason that I picked up the set was because of this lilac colour. It is just so beautiful.
As per usual the formula is fantastic. I always do two coats but it is full coverage after one coat.
Just to mention the set this was in was only £25 in the sale and contained 6 colours, a nail file and a black clutch/makeup bag.
This set is definitely worth picking up if you can still find it anywhere!

OPI YOU CALLIN ME A LYRE? | This is a beautiful pale pink colour with a semi sheer finish. This was from OPI’s New York City Ballet collection. This gives the nails a beautiful healthy and natural look
NAILS INC NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL | This is a true bright yellow colour with an opaque finish. I am not sure which collection this was from
NAILS INC HOLLAND PARK GARDENS | This is a beautiful pale green with a cream finish. This was from their garden party collection and is simply beautiful
OPI KISS ME I’M BRAZILIAN | This is a new favourite for me which is a hot pink with a slightly nude undertone which makes it much more wearable than neon. This is from OPI’s latest Brazil collection

I went a bit shopping mad this past week and ended up with this little lot!
First of all the scarf…….. I love the contrast of the grey and bright pink…….. absolutely perfect for spring! I picked this up in Primark for £4!
Next up is this beautiful nude lipstick. I have been looking for the perfect nude lip but all the ones I have tried haven’t hit the mark, whereas this colour is perfect. This is from L’Oreal Paris’ Color Riche Collection Privee in the colour Doutzen’s Nude. It is the perfect nude that is not too brown but not too pink!
Boots had 3 for 2 so I also picked up this Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Mascara! I accidentally picked up the waterproof version and I am so disappointed with this mascara. After I had applied two coats my lashes barely looked different to having no mascara on. Maybe the non-waterproof one would be better!
The last item I picked up from Boots 3 for 2 offer was this L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique concealer in Light. I didn’t think that this concealer had very good coverage but I like it for applying over another concealer to highlight the under-eye.
I have always wanted to try Physicians Formula but it is not normally available in the UK. However, I discovered this in TKMaxx. It was the only product they had by this brand but I am so glad that I found it. The bronzer is lovely and surprisingly it isn’t too orange for my pale skin and the blusher is a lovely coral colour. This product also has the added benefit of having a mirror and small brush underneath. I am definitely looking forward to trying more products from this brand!
I picked up some more Invisibobble hair bands. I have these in the yellow and they are amazing. They do not dent your hair and they prevent getting tight hairs when your hair is up! If you wear your hair up often then definitely check these out!
Beautybay had an extra 10% off over easter weekend so I picked up these two summer colours. The pink is from the Brazil Collection and is ‘Kiss Me I’m Brazilian’. The purple is ‘You’re such a Budapest’ from the Euro Centrale collection! These are both must have colours for spring/summer and have a fantastic formula!
Last but definitely not least, Nails Inc had an 8 piece special collection for only £20……. I couldn’t resist!
From L – R (Top) : Hay Hill, Weighhouse Street, Providence Court, Adam’s Row

There is not one colour in this collection that I am not in love with! They are all beautiful colours with fantastic formulas so keep your eyes peeled for some NOTD’s using these beauties!
