As the end of the year comes to a close, it can only mean two things: the beginning of summer and fun holiday Christmas parties. Whether you enjoy lounging by the pool, soaking up some sun (with SPF of course) or frolicking along the beach, hair dripping with saltwater. Or even camped in front of your air conditioner binge watching another season of your fave Netflix show, or sipping champagne through the holidays. What these past times all have in common is that you can rock a mesmerizing manicure while doing any one of them.
This month, our Australian bellas received aNails Inc nail polish in their bellabox. With a colour array ranging from a vibrant red named Tate to a pale rose pink called Mayfairlane to a cool-toned muted grey named Porchester Square, these three wearable colours are sure to make a statement this summer.
Here are four ways to get the most out of your new nail polish:
Be Red-dy to stand out at your Christmas celebrations
Picture this: You’re wearing a beautiful black off-the-shoulder jumpsuit that you’ve been saving for an occasion since its purchase on Black Friday. Your upcoming work Christmas party seems like the perfect event to debut the new garment. You slip into the outfit, buckle up your favourite strappy heels but realise that something is missing. You look down at your hands and notice your bare nails. **light bulb moment** A statement nail! Popping on two coats of a vivid red nail polish like Nail Inc’s Tate will complete your look for this holiday season. This ultra glossy finish is chip-resistant and will also protect and strengthen your nails with their exclusive regenerating complex.
A Greyt colour to go with any outfit
Name a more anxiety-inducing moment than picking a nail polish colour at the salon. I hope I’m not the only one who struggles to make a decision when it comes to my nails. A million and one thoughts go through my head when making this decision: Do I have any upcoming events? Will this colour clash with my favourite work shirt? Will I grow tired of it real quick? Stress no more bellas, because I’ve discovered a colour that will go with any outfit. Introducing Nail Inc’s Porchester Square. This soft grey looks amazing with anything and is a great change if you’re used to your typical nudes and pinks (oops guilty). The vegan and cruelty-free formula is a best-seller thanks to its high pigmentation and rapid dry finish. Do yourself a favour and add this nail polish to your collection.
(Me to my sister) I Pink-y promise I won’t lose this nail polish
I don’t know about you, but subtle and gorgeous shades of baby pink nail polish like Nail Inc’s Mayfairlane have a tendency to go missing in my house. An everyday polish staple, this colour will not disappoint. This long-wearing, high gloss nail polish is the perfect universal pink that will look great on everyone, suiting all skin tones. To ensure the best colour pay off with this shade, apply a base coat before proceeding with 2-3 coats depending on your preferred level of opacity. If a minimal nail polish colour is your cup of tea, make sure you add this shade to your cart next time you check out.
Bonus Tips to NAIL your merry manicure
If you want your nails to make an impact and sleigh this Christmas, it all begins with taking proper care of those cuticles. Make a habit of applying cuticle oil daily, and regularly file your nails to ensure they remain strong and less prone to breakage. Keep in mind that the drier weather may dry out your hands too, so make sure you apply a hand cream nightly to restore moisture and keep your hands looking summer fresh.
Stay safe this holiday period and we will see you in 2020!
