Pretty in Pink Nails

I have been loving pink nails as summer turns to autumn.These are my top 3 pink nail polish from my collection. They are maybe more summery than September allows but I am not ready for the colder weather and dark nights!

Chanel in 535 May: Chanel nail polish is an indulgence, this one was a gift from my boyfriend, don’t know if I would pay full whack myself. Saying that I love this colour, it is the softest pink of the 3 and it feels so ladylike and elegant to wear.

Essie in Lovie Dovie With the best name of the bunch, this is a vibrant girly pink which gives a rich colour in two coats. It feels fun to wear and perfect for those last couple days of sunshine.

I was really impressed by the wear time on this polish and found the application really good.

No7 in Pink Grapefruit A hot pink colour which I love on my toes. Wear time is average.

Will be breaking out the darker fall colours soon though!.

Pretty in Pink Lips


The summer sunshine (long may it last) has inspired me to break out the pink lipstick.  Pink is one of my favourite colours, bright vibrant pink the best of all. I love a pink lipcolour when wearing  my big sunglasses  as they give colour while my eye-make-up hidden away. If you are interested I did a post on my new (well newish now) Fendi sunglasses which I am completely in love with. The 5 product pictured are the Pinks I have been reaching for (apart from this week of course as I am on a limited Shop my Stash challenge)


In no particular order, I have Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Pink Orchid. If you aren’t sure about a bright pink lip this is a fab one to try as at around £2 you don’t risk much if you don’t love it/wear often.  It has a slight metallic undertone which I won’t usually go for but it works here.

An other favourite of mine is Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in Sweetheart. This is the first of the crayon lipsticks I bought and I really like the easy application, especially in the heat . It also smells of lovely minty goodness, definitely the best scented lipstick in my collection.

My love of bold lips does get curbed on work days- not sure my workplace could handle it or maybe I just need a bit more confidence to pull it off. For work days I gravitate to my Chanel lipsticks which provide a softer pretty pink lip. I know I have said it before but I do love Chanel packaging, it so elegant. The two pictured are Aventure which offers high shine and Magnolia a  rosier colour.

Finally, the newest pink in my collection  is Sleek Gloss Me in Rose which provides a high shine pink with an almost rosegold shimmer undertone. Sleek is a new brand to me, I have heard lots about it and a recent offer in Boots finally got me to part with my cash. Impressed so far. Minor point but I really enjoy the square packaging, stops it rolling away- so simple yet so haandy when applying make-up on the move!

What is your favourite pink lip products?

Oh Happy Canada Day to any Canadians!
