Autumn / Winter Nails: Short and Dark


Just a quick post today, before the pain creeps too high me to be able to look at my iPhone screen! I finally had a morning where pain was low enough for me to leave home for the first time in weeks; yay! I grabbed the opportunity to give my nails some attention which they desperately needed.


I have a layer of acrylic (without tips) on my nails at all times, to keep them the same length. I used to have long, full on talons that changed colour several times a week; God be with the days as my Irish grandmother would say! Since I’m not well enough for that level of maintenance at the moment, I just get my nails filled in & shortened down when I can leave the house.

So, after getting my in-fills, I asked the technician to give my nails a couple of coats of this shade which I brought with me. I’m a fan of dark nails at any time of the year, but they seem especially gorgeous in Autumn/Winter. I like to keep them short & square when going this dark; I think it suits the shade and is also easier to maintain while my daily pain levels are high.


The shade I went for is 15 ‘red i am’ from Essence’s The Darks range. I bought it as part of my £20 Beauty Haul fromBeauty Crowd a while back. I really like it; it’s a deep rich shade that looks elegant against any skin tone. The polish itself has a nice shiny finish and lasts well when sealed with a topcoat – what more can you ask for £1.80!

Do you have a go-to dark nail polish?

Wishing you good luck & happy days,

Kindra x
