Nicole Scherzinger seems to be loving metallic nail polish this summer and has been spotted at several parties with metallic nails.I recently discovered some amazing metallic nail polishes from myface.cosmetics
Myface.cosmetics have recently launched their ‘Lil Bling’ line of nail polishes in 5 gemstone chrome-coat colours; Raspberry Beret, Limelight, Sugar Plum, Pink Champgne and Tequila sunrise.The formulas used in the nail polish result in a look where your nails look like they have been dipped in molten metal.
I wore the Pink Champagne colour which I absolutely loved and had so many complements on!It was really easy to apply to my nails and it lasted really well.
I followed these tips from ‘nail technician to the stars’ Marian Newman;
1. File smart
“Square nails and long, French-manicure styles are out, so keep them short and natural, mirroring the shape of the cuticle with your file,” says Newman. Use a gentle file such as the Kanga Board (Best Beauty Buy) to round off edges and corners.
2. First base
Base coat is a must. “It’s not just something you should use with darker shades to prevent staining – it’s essential for every hue,” says Newman. “Look for one that dries with a matte finish (such as Seche Clear crystal Clear Base Coat (Best Beauty Buy) – it will help the polish adhere to the nails better.”
3. Tip top
“After two coats of polish, I paint on a thick layer of top coat for a ‘plastic’ finish,” says Newman. “Run it around the edges of your nails to seal in the colour.” Finish with a drop of Solar Oil (Best Beauty Buy) to speed up drying and hydrate cuticles.
I didn’t have any Solar Oil so used some cuticle oil that I had in my manicure kit which I thought worked really well.It was like adding a protective layer to my nails which was great as I do tend to get a bit impatient when waiting for my nails to dry!
I can’t wait to try out the other 4 nail polish colours and will certainly be giving Nicole Scherzinger a run for her money this summer with my metallic nails!
