Summer Nails: Lilac

Just a quick post today to share my current nail look. It’s always a good day when I’m finally well enough to make it out of the house to get to my favourite nail place 😊 It requires planning, meds, lying down afterwards and sometimes my long suffering husband escorting me home if the pain has spiked, but at least one part of me looks neat and not sick afterwards!

Since it can be many, many weeks between nail salon visits, I’ve had the length kept short on my acrylic in-fills. Acrylic is somewhat out of fashion these days but my nails stay tidy and the same length as as each other for weeks at a time, so it’s worth it to me.

There are certain shades I’m drawn to every summer – baby blues, pinks and lilacs always make an appearance during warmer months. This Rimmel polish from the Rita Ora range is 558 Wild-Er-Ness. It was on sale at ASOS so I popped it into my basket on a whim last time I placed an order.

The shade itself is very pretty but I noticed that it required more coats to get a decent coverage than, for example, my polishes from Essence (which are even cheaper!). I find the brush to be a touch wide but nothing major. It’s a decent polish for the price but I suspect a good top coat will make all the difference to the wear time.

What nail shades do you reach for in the summer months?

Wishing you good luck and happy days,

Kindra x
