Tag: The Colours Of The Rainbow | Nail Polish Edition

This little tag has been racing round the blogosphere at lighting speed and I of course had to join in, though mine is a tad different. I thought instead of showing my favorite colour coordinated beauty products. I would instead, dedicate this tag entirely to nail polish. Though if you've read my blog for a while, you're probably not that surprised, I do have a bit of a nail polish addiction after all haha.

If you fancy doing this tag the old fashioned way, all you have to do is pick a product for each of the colour categories. Now I know my school days are well behind me but one thing I do remember is a little rhyme we were taught to remember the colours of the rainbow.

"Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain"

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet, though for the purpose of this tag Pink & Multicolored have been added too.

 Right, I'm going to stop rambling now and show you my picks:
Colours Of The Rainbow
 Models Own Hedonist
   China Glaze Sun Worshipper
  Models Own Banana Split
 Essie Mint Candy Apple
Essie Butler Please    
Barry M Indigo
Essie Play Date
China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy
Models Own Ibiza Mix

I think you can tell by this little collection that I have a serious love of bright colours, anything neon, I'm sold. That may explain why Flip Flop Fantasy is one of my most used nail polishes. The swatch below really doesn't do it justice, believe me this is one colour that you will definitely want in your collection.

If you're after the perfect pedicure colour, I definitely recommend Hedonist, it's my go-to summer colour and together with the Seche Vite topcoat, stays on my toes for weeks.

Let me know what you're go-to pedicure colour is? Also if you've done this tag feel free to leave the link in the comments below so I can take a look.

  1. oh my god, the purple essie polish caught my eye to this post, its GORGEOUS <3

  2. Love Essie Butler Please, might have to purchase it after this post! xxx

    1. You definitely should, it's a gorgeous colour, though it would get it from the diffusion line rather than the regular line, the wider brush is a lot better.

  3. I'm eyeing on Models Own nail polishes for long time! I love the mint candy apple among them all! ^^

    1. Models Own have such an amazing array of colours to choose from and you really can't beat mint candy apple :)

  4. I am now very very tempted by several of those nail polishes! In particular Barry M's Indigo :)

    1. Indigo is such a unique colour I don't have anything like it in my collection :-)
