Meet my current favourite nail look - a combination of a cheap-as-chips metallic I picked up for pennies in Asda, and my favourite shade from Sally Hansen’s new glitter range, Gem Crush.
As we head further and further into the dark depths of winter, I’ve been craving a little sparkle in my life. This combo has just the right amount of bling without being too in-your-face for the day-to-day.
The Asda polish is called Warrior and described as a quick dry nail varnish – I picked it up as the shade reminds me of Chanel’s Quartz, which I have oft admired but don’t yet own. It’s a touch warmer than Quartz and is a champagney/beige/taupe sorta shade that applies really smoothly and does actually dry quickly, as billed.
It’s also the perfect base for Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Big Money, a fine champagne/gold glitter with larger pieces of lilac glitter . The bottle has been living on my desk in work and every so often its twinkly loveliness distracts me from the task at hand. I am very smitten with this shade, and its unique and unexpected colour combination.
The Sally Hansen Gem Crush polishes are €8.95 each; look for them in your local pharmacy or supermarket now. I can’t wait to check out Glitz Gal, a grey glitter, and Razzle Dazzle, a pink and silver glitter, from the range.
