Since the beginning of September I have been mostly wearing darker colours on my nails. I bought Essie's Velvet Voyeur (How amazing is that name?) a few months ago when it was very hot and I was longing for cool Autumn days. When I saw this shade I initially thought it was too similar to my bottle of OPI We'll Always Have Paris which I wore to death last Winter but I figured since I wore that shade so much I would probably love this one too.
I was searching for a good base coat and top coat and I decided on the CND Stickey Base Coat after it was used on my nails when I had a manicure a few months ago. I found it made the manicure last very well.
I had wanted to try Seche Vite for a long time after reading so many great reviews of it. I couldn't quite understand why it was raved about so much, that is until I actually tried it for myself. It makes painting my nails so much easier. I don't know anyone who doesn't hate waiting around for their nails to dry and this just eliminates that problem completely, it's replaced Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri for me.
I love these two products together, they give me the most beautiful glossy nails and a few people have asked me if my nails were Shellac or a professional manicure, I'd say that's a pretty good reason to repurchase both of them.
You can find both the CND Base Coat and Seche Vite on Cult Beauty for about £8.95/£9.95 respectively. I got Velvet Voyeur on sale from HQ Hair for €9.45.
What are you wearing on your nails right now?
