On my nails this week: Models Own Prussian Blue & Freak Out, Essie Watermelon and Marks and Spencer Limited Collection nail foils

I tend to paint my nails a good few times a week, so I thought I might do a round up post now and again of what my nails have been wearing.  This week things have been rather varied - some nice bold nails to brighten up the first full five day week back at work.


Models Own|  Prussian Blue (base) | Freak Out (glitter) | £5 each or 2 for £8 | Boots

Prussian Blue is a lovely navy that's not too dark and has a hint of grey about it.  It's a perfect base for the blue, turquoise and pink mixed sized glitter of freak out from the Mirror Ball collection.  People at work ask me how I did it when have nails like this - I clearly need to introduce them to the world of multi-glitter polishes!


Essie | Watermelon | £8 | Boots

This is definitely a summer shade - I wore it a lot when I was in Vegas so it reminds me of that too.  I wore it this week to give me a much needed 'pop' among all this dreary weather.  Sorry for the slightly grainy iphone pic, I blame the weather (again) for the poor lighting! 


*Limited Collection | Nail Foils | £6 (now reduced to £2) | Marks and Spencer

I was sent some new nail foils to play with, so I thought I'd try those out this week too.  I'm not a huge zebra fan and wouldn't have picked these, but they look a lot nicer on than I expected.  There are some lovely designs in the rest of the range that I really like, such as these ones with a coloured crystal design, but they seem to be sold out and I can only see the zebra ones online right now.  It seems they're reduced to £2 too - totally worth snapping up a bargain at that price.  

These were moderately easy to use compared to others I've tried.  I only say moderately because the smallest foil was far too wide for my little finger so I had to do some diy to cut one to fit.  Other than that application was fine and they seem to adhere a bit better than some others I've tried. 

What do you think?  Shall I try to make this kind of nail round up a regular feature?

  6. I'm loving all the nail updates, Freak Out is the prettiest thing ever :-)

    If M&S are sold out of that design you liked, I noticed Nailease sell a very similar one: http://www.nailease.co.uk/nail/black-multi-square-diamante
