My Top 8 Nail Varnishes!

 Hey lovilies,

My favourite nail varnishes are always changing but these are the nail varnishes I'm really enjoying at the moment. My favourite ones are probably either Essie Muchi Muchi or Nails Inc Piccadilly Circus.

Rimmel - Riviera Red:  I love this nail varnish, it's an opaque red with only two coats. The brush is super easy to use and it makes applying the nail varnish 10X easier as it's a large brush that expands on your nail. I adore large brushes because you only have to use 1/2 strokes depending on each nail; so it makes painting your nail much quicker. If I'm not sure what colour to wear most of the time, I go for red. It dries really quickly and It leaves a lovely glossy finish. REVIEW & SEE IT ON [LINK].

Nails Inc - Piccadilly Circus:  I love this colour, I got it free with glamour magazine last year; and since then it rapidly became one of my most used nail varnishes. The colour is gorgeous, it's a beautiful raspberry shade which looks lovely in summer and winter. It's an opaque raspberry shade with 1/2 coats and it literally is dry to touch within 5 minutes, it's probably my fastest drying nail varnish; I seriously love this nail varnish and probably would pay £11 for it. Next Nails Inc nail varnishes on my list are from the collection Sprinkles!

Essie - Muchi Muchi: I have talked about this nail varnish before if you've read my Essie nail varnish collection post, so I won't talk about this too much; if you do want to read more about it you can read about it HERE. I absolutely love this nail varnish, I was worried it wouldn't suit my skin colour but it really does and I honestly believe it would suit any skintone; as far as I've seen it looks gorgeous on the lightest to darkest skintones. It's a really elegant colour but the only thing is that it needs around 3-4 coats to make it opaque but it is worth it in the end and it lasts around 4 days without a topcoat.

Essie - Tour De Finance: I have talked about this nail varnish before if you've read my Essie nail varnish collection post, so I won't talk about this too much either; if you do want to read more about it you can read about it HERE. I love this nail varnish it's a gorgeous fuchsia colour with silver glitter, it is an opaque fuchsia with 2 coats max. Drying time is quick, overall it's just a great nail varnish and one I see myself reaching for a lot more than anticipated.
Barry M - Navy: I love Barry M nail varnishes, they are so affordable and they're great quality. The colour range is fantastic. I love this colour, it's an opaque navy with 2 coats. I would suggest using a topcoat to make it last longer as I find without a topcoat it only lasts around 2 days before it starts chipping. Overall I would definitely recommend this nail varnish & just Barry M nail varnishes overall..they are brrrrrrilliant.

Barry M - Silvery Lilac: This is a beautiful shade, very unusual but that's what makes it so lovely, the glitter finish is gorgeous. In some lights it looks lilac and some it looks teal; it's a very difficult shade to pin-point the exact colour as it look likes a different colour in almost every light. This shade takes around 2 coats to make it opaque but it dries quickly which is always a bonus.

Revlon - Lunar: I love wearing black nail varnish as it's so versatile and it goes with everything and anything you wear. I only need one coat to make it an opaque black and it dries super quickly. I love Revlon nail varnishes - they really are amazing; the only thing is some of their nail varnishes have thin brushes and some have thick brushes. I personally prefer thick brushes as I find them much easier to work with so I'm glad this specific colour has a large brush. If you're looking for a black nail varnish I definitely would recommend this one as it applies so well and it gives a lovely glossy finish.

No7 Totally Teal: This is the only teal nail varnish I own and even if I did own other teal's I know I would come back to this one. I personally don't find No7 nail varnishes the best especially for the price but this one is lovely; not only is the colour gorgeous but it's super easy to apply. The only thing is that it doesn't have the quickest drying time and it doesn't have the best lasting power as I find it starts to chip after a couple of days (but this can be avoided by using a good quality topcoat!). Overall it's a lovely product and a beautiful shade and I would recommend it (especially if you have a spare No7 voucher!).

 My top nail varnishes are always changing, especially in summer and winter but I will definitely do another top nail varnishes post in the summer as I find myself reaching for brighter colours!
