The Winter Blues(-Greys)

If I had to say what my favourite colour nail polish to wear, it would be a mix between blues and greys, and I just think they're perfect to wear all year round! Today I thought I'd do a post about my three favourite shades.

These are three different formulations - Rimmel Salon Pro Lycra with Kate (say that three times fast!), OPI and Rimmel Lycra Pro. I've not tried many polishes from Rimmel but obviously the ones that I have, have impressed me! I really like the fact that they have quite wide brushes, as it makes the application process a whole lot fast. This is actually the only OPI polish I own, as personally I think they're a bit extortionately priced in the UK, but I've noticed that this one dries really quickly - is that just this particular one, or is that the same for all OPI? Either way, I'm really happy about it!

The top shade is called Moon and I promise it comes out on your nails a bit lighter than that and in certain lights, it definitely looks blue! I think it's a really chic colour as it's glossy without a top coat but it has no sparkle in it. I Don't Give A Rotterdam! on the other hand, has a reflex of silver glitter, which makes it perfect to brighten up your nails a little bit in this January doom and gloom! In certain lights it looks like a light blue but in others it looks completely silver, which I really love. Plus it makes the bottle look really pretty!
The bottom shade is a bit more of a summer shade. Then again, that's because Aqua Cool was basically the only thing I had on my nails for the whole summer so it may just be me thinking of that! I would consider it to be almost a neon shade, as it's so bright that it instantly catches your eye, but at the same time, it's not garish when you look at it. I think it's a really unique shade and if you're looking for a nail colour to make you smile and look forward to the warmer weather, this may just be it!

Do you have any other blue/grey shades I need to pick up? What's your favourite colour family of nail polish to wear?


  1. The OPI ones are pricey but the colour is so lovely! I like them all though. Rimmel is a great brand for nails I think. x x

    1. I actually bought that one from Fragrance Direct so it's definitely worth checking out that website - they do such great discounts on nail polish especially! x

  2. Bluey-greys are my favorite to wear, lovely picks! x
