In the absence of blue skies I have opted for blue nails: Mystic Twilight to be exact, a Bluesky (£5.99) shade for spring 2013. I fell in love with the blackness of Fedora and was reluctant to change – but it did look severe with the lighter clothes I’m trying to wear as our UK spring attempts to get into gear. Mystic Twilight is a gorgeous light navy – cerulean – with a shimmer. This will be hard to give up too! Find all the Bluesky colours on ebay.
The gel is thick and a single coat gives great opacity without any rippling during cure. A second, plus top coat, gives rock hard nails. It’s easy to apply – doesn’t run or shrink back from nail tips or edges. This was a very quick gel application compared to some colours I’ve used. I don’t match nail colour to outfits – you can’t really with a manicure which lasts a couple of weeks – but this complements jeans and looks good against pastels or dark clothes. It positively zings in sunlight.
