It’s maniday. Every Monday we like to share what we’re wearing on our nails and why.
Brand/Product: Face of Australia – nail polish
Colour: Show Off – a bright coral from their Colour Pro Enamel range.
Price: $6.95 from Priceline, Big W or K-mart or shop online.
Why I Wore It: A friend of mine was having a summer barbecue and I was rostered on for four night shifts at the hospital where I work – yuck. But I was determined to go despite the fact I never do anything other than sleep, work and whinge when I’m on nights. I knew I’d be dragging myself out of bed at 4pm to go to the barbecue before work and that it was highly unlikely I’d have the energy to be dressing up. So before starting nights I bought Show Off, a bright summery colour that I knew would add some summer to my otherwise sleepy demeanour.
And so the afternoon of the barbecue I rolled out of bed and off I went in my scrub pants, a t-shirt I wearily pulled out of my draw, a pair of thongs and my summer nail polish. I looked like a dag but my nail polish was awesome.
Why we love it: It’s free from Toluene, Formaldehyde and Dibutyl Phthalate. It’s long lasting and has a glossy shine to it so I found no top coat was needed. It’s also quick drying. I did need two coats though.
Verdict (Yay or Nay): I’m loving this colour! Show Off is a bright coral, and complements my olive skin. It’s super fun and perfect for jazzing up a simple outfit. Yay!
