Nailing it ...

I love manicures or just colour changing. Apparently in the past when the economy was tricky, women indulged in lipstick to cheer themselves up but in today's world it is nail polish.

Who can blame us when the likes of Essie and OPI make us feel like a kid in a candy shop. Chanel gets us up in a Frenzy (literally with the latest shade) with their must have shades of each season. I couldnt resist going for Holiday and Delight this year.

I will admit it doing my nails is therapeutic for me and I will change my nail colour as often as 5 times a week even when on holiday.

During the summer I loved the light blues and light green ones - like ice cream.

But I was also inspired by another blog I frequently read www.cupcakesandcashmere.com (let's be honest two of the best things in the world) and was inspired to try doing the sunset manicure too. I was cheerfully pleased with the result.

When I buy polishes the names also inspire me - and they help me remember which is which. So whether it is OPI Lincoln Park after Dark or Roll in the Hague - the name alone can make me happy. I am a huge fan of the coral tones. They suit my skintone better than red and make a nice switch from black in winter.

But I love how black and greys have become the new staples for winter.

So tell me ... what is your favourite nail polish colour?
