The New Thing: New Wave Nails

I went on a bit of a Topshop nail polish buying spree last week and luckily managed to snap a shot of one of my favourites of the bunch before breaking all my nails (owwies!). New Wave is a beautiful orangey red that reminds me of Essie’s “Meet Me At Sunset” – one of my favourite polishes of all time. What’s better is that not only is it a cracking dupe it’s also cheaper and has a much better formula – lasting a good 5 days on my nails before things start to get a little cracked and chipped.

I know orangey-reds are more of a summer thing for most people, but for me summer is always when things get seriously neon, so more subtle brights always end up being my thing for spring. You may have also noticed that a certain orangey-yellow has been gracing my nails a lot recently too – another one of my favourites from the same spree. But that one may be being saved for next week. Ooooh spoilers…

    I much prefer orange red to true red on my nails, I think it looks really classy and reminds me so much of Summer πŸ™‚
