My nails are in a right state at the moment, all peeling, flaking and breaking off. Ordinarily, I’d go for a week without varnish and treat the hell out of them. However, I’ve got to go to a swanky work event on Wednesday in London which I want to look professional for. It’s business dress, not black tie, so I don’t need a flashy nail colour, but I do want to be groomed!
I decided that I would get rid of the worst of my flaking tips using nail scissors, and file them short. Harsh, but necessary I think! I used Mavala cuticle remover and then Mavala ridge filler as a base coat to disguise some of the damage. I then followed this with a couple of coats of OPI’s Barefoot in Barcelona, a classic, neutral beige shade, topped with Rimmel top coat.
I’m pretty pleased with the result! I think it looks professional enough – hopefully it will last through to Wednesday evening and then I can whip it all off and start some nail treatments. By the way, it looks darker in real life,
As an extra NOTD, I wanted to show you a small picture of my pedicure – I used Minted by Revlon for the first time. I’ve wanted to try Minted for ages, but I have to say that I wasn’t that impressed. I love the colour, but the application was a bit thin and I found it a bit messy – after 3 coats I got the look I was after.
But then I decided I didn't want to show you my feet, I don't want to put off any readers, so I won't!
