H&M Nail Polish

We have a lot of nail polish, and by a lot I do mean A LOT! Nigar typically paints her nails every couple of days and while I love the IDEA of nail polish I often don't like it on me (plus they don't tend to last more than 24 hours without chipping on me as I tend to use my hands a lot). 

My favourite way of applying nail polish would be by doing coloured tips or by using a neutral base and then some sort of glitter/confetti top coat.
This post is dedicated to H&M nail polishes as they are one of my favourite; creamy, opaque and affordable (£2.99/9 ml) and comes in a fun range of colours. The colour intensity of the nail polishes on nails matches that of the bottles; some of the colours require 2 coats while with some you can get away with 1. These can be picked up from H&M stores and while we have 2 in the Birmingham City Centre, only the Pavillion store stocks the nail polishes. They can be ordered online (although the range is limited) but having had a prior bad experience with H&M online I now only shop in-store.

The swatches are pretty true to life- The blue polish "Nail Him" (err) does have a an iridescent sheen shot through it that can only be seen in certain light. 

This is "Wawawoom" and is totally desi appropriate! It's opaque in pretty much 1 coat and is so beautiful under artificial light (wedding lights!)


Now for my favourite H&M nail polish EVER, meet "Stay Golden", don't mind if I DO!
I also really like this for Jelly Sandwich Nails. It contains a bigger glitter suspended in clear liquid with tiny pieces of glitter.

And  for the newest addition (could not resist this even though it's not my type of colour but it was just so beautiful I had to get it):
Did I Tell You? 

I am pretty sure we have more of these bad boys lying around  but just cant seem to find them. Will update this post as we do. 

P.S. I have a totally new-found respect for nail bloggers! I don't know how you guys take such awesome pictures of your nails! I've been attempting for so long and none of the photos are any good.
