AUTUMN // SHELLAC NAILS

Source: cnd.com 


I am pretty new to the whole ' getting your nails done' experience as I used to work in retail in a stockroom. I'm sure we've all come across trying to open packaging with ridiculous acrylic nails and the constant state of fear of breaking/chipping/pulling them off.

Now I have an office job, I don't have an excuse for ugly nails other than the fact I am really lazy! However, I have become addicted to CND - Shellac. It is such an easy way to look after your nails and keep them looking beautiful and it's not as expensive a habit as you might think.

Here are my favourite Autumn shades you should try, whether you're a Shellac newbie or an obsessive!




MIDNIGHT SWIM

I love bold, dark nail colours in Autumn and this is great.

I really wanted a navy and this was the closest colour my salon had available. I loved the name too!
However, this is MUCH more glittery than it looks in the bottle (left) but I think it's a gorgeous party colour.





PLUM PAISLEY 

This is my ultimate favourite I've had since I had my first Shellac session at the beginning of the year.

It is a new, stunning dark purple and IMO, no normal gel polish will compare to this with the Shellac top coat.


Usually I like to mix up the colours I choose every time I get my nails done but I'm definitely going to have this one throughout the season!
