Topshop Parma Violet: NOTD

My first NOTD of 2012 wasn’t exactly a traditional winter colour, but it is an absolutely one of my favourites. This is the lovely ‘Parma Violet’ from Topshop – a lovely little pale lilac.
I’ve said this before, but I love the Topshop packaging – cute but not in your face girly.

 I’ve also included the two other nail products I am loving at the moment – the No7 Base Coat does a great job of smoothing before application and staying. The other one I was using (think it was just a generic Boots one) was pretty rubbish and kept peeling. But this one works really well and is great value (especially if bought with the £5 vouchers).

The other one is Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat – creates a gorgeously glossy top coat that really lasts, staying glossy and keeps its fab (the green tinge doesn’t seem to make any difference to the colour).

I was thinking about nail care stuff, I have quite a selection of products to try and keep my nails healthy as I’ve always suffered from dry hands and cuticles – so maybe I should do a post on what I’ve used, liked and what’s not worked for me.

If you have any recommendations for nail or cuticle care products please let me know, it’s a bit of an obsession for me!

All bought by me.

    I have realised yesterday that a dab of vaseline on your cuticles works wonders (I used the Aloe Vera one, don’t know if it’ll make a difference). It’s sticky, it’s messy, but it works).
    Love the Topshop polish!

    Barry M’s ‘Mint green’ is a lovely pastel colour too. My new fave!
