Grown up Talons

So the time has come when I well and truly feel like a grown up. Planning my wedding has made me feel like it’s time once and for all to give up the funky pastel polishes I used to love, and stick with some truly chic shades – don’t worry, I’m not talking french manicure (YUCK), I’m talking Olivia Palermo dark pinks and cherry reds. And of course some chic nudes (Barry M Gelly Lychee – you’re still my number one). But today I’m going to concentrate on the brights, as after all British Summertime officially commences this weekend – yikes!!!

My current favourites that make me feel well and truly polished and grown up – but still young, are –

Estee Lauder Tumultuous Pink – For a deep hot pink look no further, instant glamourpuss chicness. The formula is also incredibly long lasting and lasted a whole week without any chips (and minimal tip wear). This will no doubt be my go to shade for the next few months.

Essie Lacquered Up – For a bright Summery red this is perfect. The ideal Olivia Palermo nail shade. Looks elegant yet cool and goes with absolutely everything.

Rimmel Salon Pro Hip Hop – For an orangey/coraly red that will look killer with a tan. The most fun of the bunch, this is bright without being garish and still feels sophisticated. The name is also pretty awesome.

Tom Ford Coral Beach – A gorgeous pale coral, this will look stunning both in the city and on the beach. It’s a grown up colour whilst still being playful. Also it’s Tom Ford, so even your dressing table will feel grown up and luxe!
