I love experimenting with new colours and brands, but if I had to choose 3 to take with me somewhere I would choose these;
1) Max Factor Nail Finity - 900 Ruby Fruit
This is a blue toned deep plum burgundy colour, it has a non streaky glossy finish that is highly pigmented - 1 coat is enough! It's the best polish I have used for this colour and believe me I have tried loads! Whenever I wear this colour I ALWAYS get compliments on it, it looks so sophisticated and pretty! I find that it also looks extra special with short nails.
2) Barry M - 262 Bright Red
This is my all time go to colour, if I'm in a rush and want my nails to look presentable, then I tend to apply this. Again with this one, 1 coat is enough. It dries to a glossy finish with no streaks. The colour itself is very bright, it's supposed to be a plain bright red but it looks a little on the coral side. I would say it's the nail polish form of Nars Red Square matt lip pencil.
3) Nails Inc - Brook St
This is my most worn nail polish, I wore this all summer long last year. It actually looks like Pink Flamingo by Barry M. It's your perfect pastel pinky peach coral colour. Nails Inc polishes are by far my favourite brand for nails. I am always satisfied with their colour payoff and formula.
