My Current Favourite Nail Polishes!

I love trying out different colour nail polishes but after gathering some of my favourites for this blog post I realised I wear a lot of reds and pinks! I’ve selected 6 current favourites from a variety of brands to show you today.


1. Sally Hansen ‘Complete Salon Manicure’. I’m really liking this polish in the shade 540 Frutti Petutie. It’s a medium pink colour and claims to have ‘7 benefits of a salon manicure in 1 bottle’ which includes top and base coat but I like to use the Champneys top and base coats with this polish (N.o 6 below). This polish leaves a glossy finish and dry’s quickly.

 2. Champneys Nail Polish  in the shade Raspberry. This is a dark pink, almost red when applied. It is glossy when dried in but unfortunately this polish is not sold as a single, it must be purchased as a set.

3. It wouldn’t be a current favourites blog without mentioning the SoSu Gel Nail Polishes by Suzanne Jackson. These nail polishes are absolutely beautiful. I am currently loving Rock Candy from the original SoSu collection. It is a gorgeous cotton candy pink that is super glossy. I fell in love with the colour the first time I applied it and can’t wait to try the new SoSu Autumn Collection!

4. Essie nail lacquer is my next current favourite in the shade Bordeaux. It is a deep burgundy colour, perfect for Autumn (Fall). It isn’t too glossy but I like to sometimes put a matte top coat over it to mattify it.

5. Warehouse’s nail polish in the shade Coral really surprised me. I didn’t expect a clothing brand to produce such a good polish but it really did. This is a really really light coloured nail polish but it stays on longer than any other I’ve tried without chipping.

6. Champneys Base & Top Coat is brilliant. It brightens up any nail polish and allows the colour to stay on for longer without chipping. Like number two above, this polish is sold in a set and not individually. I use this over all my nail polishes to create more of a sheen.

I think the shades Raspberry & Bordeaux will be perfect for Autumn (Fall) which is the season we are now in in Ireland.
