Pastels in Autumn/ Winter?

I'm sure like myself once the darker evenings roll in and the Autumn/Winter months begin I put my Summer nail polishes to the back of the drawer and the dark polishes make an appearance. While I was in New York, I picked up three gorgeous Essie shades, surprisingly I didn't pick up any dark shades. I'm usually a bigger fan of the deeper winter shades, I don't know what happened, but surprisingly I have been loving these lighter shades this month.

The Essie shades are called Urban Jungle (a pale nude shade), Mademoiselle (a pale pink shade) and Sparkle on top. I have worn all three in the last few weeks and absolutely love them. Essie have so many beautiful shades in there range, I wish it wasn't so expensive to purchase here in Ireland.

Is anyone else enjoying some pastel nail shades this Autumn/ Winter?

Transform your nails with MICRO Nail

There has been so much hype about this product online I could not wait to give it a try. The MICRO Nail* is a new nail polishing product which works magic on your nails to create an even glossy finish. The product contains two rollers, the grey roller is used first to buff and smooth the nail surface, it also removes stains and discoloration on the nail bed. The second white roller is then used to create a glossy high shine finish. The product claims to leave your nails looking healthy and glossy for two weeks!

I was impressed with this product. It took a few goes to get used to it. The roller speed is quite high so I found it ran off my nail a few times during my first use and I was a bit wary of tearing skin, but the rollers are very soft and I did not find any damage to my skin. Once I was used to the product I was very impressed with it. My nails were left feeling soft, buffed and super shiny. I also loved how quick the process is. I find my natural nails can be quite discoloured (polish addict!) and dull. I love having freshly manicured nails and very rarely leave the house without painted nails. This is a nice change, the process only takes minutes and my nails don't feel naked without polish, they have a lovely natural shine.

Has anyone else given this product a try?

MICRO Nail is available from Boots Store and
