I spent one of my days off a couple of weeks ago swatching nine of my favourite pink nail polishes to show you – I hope you enjoy! I have to say it was difficult to narrow down, I have raaather a few pinks in my collection.
This is Zoya Reece, from the Spring 2010 Reverie collection. I promised I’d show you this one in my post about Adina from the same collection – and for once I’ve actually lived up to a promise on here haha. This is stupidly beautiful, when I wear it I just can’t stop gawking at my nails. What’s not to love about a pink-gold duochrome?
This is Essie Flawless. I think this was part of Essie’s Spring 2010 collection, too. I’ve only got a couple of Essies, but I really like them. Nice opaque formula (at least on the ones I’ve got!) and a pleasant formula to work with. With it’s muted cherry blossom hue, this, and Reece come to think of it, are probably the most ‘grown up’ pinks in my collection – most of the ones I own are very in-your-face and not what you’d call office friendly. This one, though, makes me feel very grown up and professional!
This is Inglot 938. I picked this one up at IMATS this year, and its probably my favourite of all the Inglot ones I got. Probably the darkest pink I own, it’s just sexy. It has this glorious shimmer to it which almost shows up as blue in direct sunlight, but try as I might I just couldn’t capture it on camera. It has an incredibly shiny finish, too. I always use a topcoat just for fast-drying purposes, but speaking in terms of finish this one doesn’t need a topcoat to look it’s best.
Look out for part II coming the day after tomorrow :)
