L-R & T-B Models Own Artstix Terra Crystal, Models Own Velvet Goth Valerian, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora, Kelly Brook Mermaid Song & Barry M Matte Espresso.
In previous years I haven't really been keen on darker nail polishes but this year I have surprised myself with some of my choices!
Models Own Artstix - Terra Crystal. I have a love/hate relationship with this nail polish. First of all I'm not a fan of brown nail polishes and when I first saw this combination in the bottle I thought how will this work together? But add Pink Crystal to your Terra Firma base coat and I think you have a rather random combination that works! The pink hexes and sliver glitter add a touch of girlie-ness to the boring brown base coat and turn your nails into pretty party-season nails, with a difference!
Models Own Velvet Goth - Valerian. This is a rich bottle blue colour which is also textured and has a matte finish (bang on trend for this season). I wasn't really keen on the textured nail polishes to start off with but I think the darker shades look great and this shade is so pretty with it's bright blue glitter particles that are in it.
Rimmel Space Dust - Aurora. Everyone needs a little sparkle during the winter party seasons and I think this shade is the perfect accompaniment to that LBD! Aurora is a really pretty peachy-pink & silver shade which also contains micro shimmer and chunky glitters to give a full on textured sparkle finish.
Kelly Brook Nail Polish - Mermaid Song. While shopping in New Look the other day this gorgeous nail polish caught my eye near the tills. It's such a different colour and nothing like any shade that I own. I'd say it's like a deep teal/green colour with an added emerald sparkle. It looks pretty on the nails and also an on trend colour for this season.
Barry M Matte Nail Paint - Espresso. Matte nail polishes are one of the top trends for this season and I think everyone should own a black nail polish as they can look really simple yet sophisticated on your nails. But for this season matte black nails look great with an accent gloss nail or even with added gold embellishments. I also love how I can leave the nail polish as it is for a matte finish or add a top coat to make it glossy. It's like having two nail polishes in one!
