Blogust 1 - Nude Nails All Day

Over the entire past month I have been enjoying my nails getting in the best shape they have ever been thanks to hopping back onto the OPI Nail envy bandwagon. I bought it on eBay (link to seller I used here) a few months ago and it didn't take long for me to see results. My nails just got stronger and looked nicer. As I do with many things, I started slacking and got distracted by some other products... my nails then went back to their old peeling and weak selves.

I gave Essie Fill The Gap a try and while it works nicely at creating a nude canvas for nail polish, it just doesn't work at nourishing the nail as good as OPI Nail Envy.


This month I went running back to Nail Envy - I use the original formula. Two coats on bare nails, then I paint them. I change my polish about every 3 days so then I start back up with two coats on bare nails again. To keep myself motivated to maintain pretty nails, I have been wearing sheer neutrals such as my old faithful Sugar Daddy by Essie.


It's sheer (this is with 3 coats) yet makes my hands look clean and fresh. It's not too pink or peach, just a great neutral... a perfect option for when you're in need of a break from all the funky colours of the season.

What's on your nails?

  8. So jealous how PERFECT they look! I am such a messy painter! Very very pretty!
    I need to "teach" myself how to give myself a manicure so I can save some money from having to go to the nail salon.
