Instanails #6

Ah nails! When it comes to beauty, nail polish was my first love and lately that love has been back in full swing. There is just something about fall that makes me want to paint my nails. Just like fall is my favorite season for all things fashion, it is also my favorite season for nail polishes. I love all those burgundies, forest greens, teals and navies. Add a touch of glitter come closer to Christmas and you’re good to go. Here’s an overview of what I wore these past 6 weeks.

Catrice Moon Rock Effect Nail Lacquer Silky Way
Catrice Moon Rock Effect Nail Lacquer Pretty Like Universe

The Catrice Moon Rock polished deserve some more love, which is why I am showing you them again. I already reviewed them and wore one in  my previous Instanails post. And today is the turn for Silky Way and Pretty Like Universe. I love the amount of sparkle these have. They are sparkly but nothing too over the top. In short, they are a great fall/ winter nail to wear on the daily.

Model’s Own Beach Bag

September saw some very nice temperatures here, so I didn’t wear as many fall proof colors yet, but prolonged the summer colors instead. One color I can never stop wearing during summer time is Beach Bag by Model’s Own. This pastel neon peach makes your hands look more tan and adds a pop of color to any outfit.

Max Factor Glossfinity Cerise

I love a good red lip, but a red nail? I don’t wear those too often. I find red nail polishes to be quite finicky: either the shade isn’t bright enough or not opaque enough, etc. There are only a few that tickle that sweet spot for me and one of them is this Max Factor polish. It was a complete impulse buy years ago, but I’ve been loving this shade ever since.

China Glaze Strawberry Fields

Another favorite nail polish is this pink with golden shimmer by China Glaze. Strawberry Fields is one of their cult nail polish colors. The pink isn’t too barbie pink, but more like a bright fuchsia shade. The golden shimmer running through it adds a nice little sheen to this polish that makes this a very fun bright summer time manicure.

OPI Aloha from OPI (Hawaii Collection)

You know OPI is my favorite nail polish brand and it was some time until I found the most perfect coral shade from the range. This may look quite orange in the picture, but if you hold this polish next to an orange you will easily see how it is much more pink toned. It is a very bright shade and again a good pop of color. I love pairing this with an otherwise monochrome outfit.

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Chilli

Finally there’s one of my new favorite fall shades. This is Chilli by Barry M. A tad difficult to find by now, but quite possibly the best chilli red nail polish in history. Think MAC’s Chili lipstick, but with a touch more brown and in nail polish form of course. This is my new go to color for fall.

What have you been wearing on your nails?
