Talon-tastic Thursday: Holiday nails (may contain feet.)

Thursday, September 06, 2012   |   5 comments

Obviously, I brought a few bottles of nail polish with me on holidays.

How many?

This many:

Since that clearly wasn't going to be enough to sustain me through a whole 12 day trip, I had to supplement my supplies with a few little purchases.


They're not all US exclusives, which is what I was supposed to be limiting myself to, but sure they were all considerably cheaper Stateside than at home. (That's what I keep telling myself, anyway; the fact that I am now on a self-imposed spending lockdown tells the rest of the story.)

In the end, even with all that shiny new loveliness to choose from, I stuck with just two variations on my favourite neon tipped tribal for my fingernails during the time I was away (which I suppose goes to show that I really need to cop on and stop buying more nail polish.)

on the Snake River, Wyoming (the altitude really dried out my cuticles, sorry!)

For the toes, I remained loyal to my favourite neon purple.

It seriously goes with everything.

    They are amazing! Are you down Camden Market at weekends? I had a look for you last week but couldn't find you. My nails are in dire need of jazzing up!

    Pink - ah bugger, sorry I missed you. I'm not there at weekends but am hoping to get down tomorrow / Friday, fingers crossed - I stick a note up on the blog's Facebook page and Twitter on the days that I'm there :)

    Le Smurf - aw thanks missus x And yes, all absolute must haves ;)

    The polish is Nina Pro Punki Purple, I heart it! Got it in the States a few years back but I know some salon suppliers stock it, too.
