Father noticed a manicure and favourite nail polish colour

Yes, you read just right. Today for the first time my father noticed the colour worn on my nails, well he first time commented about it. And the comment was quite appropriate: 'Don't you have anything brighter? This looks like someone just died!'. I was a bit shocked but it is a fact, this colour is not really season fitting. In my defence, i thought today will be rainy and cold (but it was extremely sunny and hot).

This is two coats of Butter London Big Smoke with top coat. Again i had time to do some daylight pictures. The only one taken in the shade is bottom right. (And i have no idea what happened on my index finger - it is the only one with noticeable shrinkage.) The formula is great but application is quite tricky, again i blame the brush that is thin, short and holds a small amount of polish so i had to dip it twice for some nails. What i like about this colour is that it is really dark but still blue all the time, even in low light. It's packed with small lighter blue shimmer that is also visible in all exposures. I find it gorgeous but i will mark it as autumn or winter polish - even though i usually never do this.

At this point i can also tell you that blue is my favourite nail polish colour, whenever something blueish comes out i just need to buy it, currently i would say one third of my stash is blue. But lately i have mostly worn other shades so i believe my blue phase will come back soon. Otherwise (non polish related) my absolute favourite is grey.

Which is your favourite (nail polish) colour? Do you sort your stash according to season?
I wish you a nice start of the week!


  1. Mi je všeč barva! In ja, tudi jaz opažam, da prilagajam barve letnemu času. Tale tvoja mi je čisto jesensko/zimska :)
    Najljubše barve so mi trenutno: pink, koralna in vijolična <3

  2. Jaz še vedno prisegam na rdečo kot tisto "it colour", ko gre za lake za nohte :)

    Drugače pa ne "ločujem" barv na sezonske.
