Reading the March issue of ELLE Magazine, and specifically the 'front row faces' page (about the celebs frequenting the most fashion shows this year), I was drawn to the images of Alexa Chung. At every show she was sporting the same bright pink nail varnish. Me likey!
I hardly ever do my nails: I do not own base coat, or top coat. I don't file and I don't orange stick. Pretty nails are nice though, occasionally. And I read somewhere that if you paint your nails last thing before bed, you're less likely to get smudges. Grabbing the brightest pink in my collection I painted my nails in bed; two coats, none of that other jazz.
Not sure how I feel about these Barbie nails, and the colour isn't great with my skin tone, but they'll amuse me for a few days.
The polish is an Orly Manicure Miniature, which I got in a set of four. The colour is fittingly called 'Basket Case' and you can find it in their permanent collection, should you wish to (which I doubt). Apologies in advance to all the hardcore nail stanners, scrunching up their faces at my shoddy application.
