Travel Exclusive! OPI Passport to Colour

I’m not particularly adventurous when it comes to my nail polish colour selection and Hayley (my nail technician) will tell you with perfect ease the colours I normally select. In fact I bet if you asked Hayley to select 5 colours for me to wear forever she would probably pick all of the below that came in this handy set of miniatures I picked up from the airport on my recent travels…

Passion – “an endlessly enticing pale pink.” Subtle and soft, perfect for everyday. Particularly perfect for me in a professional 9 – 5 environment or if I’m due to attend Court (always best to tone it down on those days!)

Tickle my France-y – “a grey-brown that is tres naughty and tres nice!” This is about as edgy as I get I’m afraid. Generally the only time I stray away from my classic collection of reds is for a nude or mink brown.

Charged up Cherry – “A hot pink red.” This is a less frequently worn colour for me. Barbie pink isn’t really my bag as I think it looks a bit cheap unless worn properly. I tend to team this with my Chanel rouge allure gloss in 116 extase if I’m going with it and keep everything else (clothes, accessories, hair & jewellery etc) all very plain.

Cajun Shrimp – “A spicy shade of coral.” Summer/ holiday essential what else can I say? Coral is reserved only for the summer months for me, otherwise you’re in danger of looking like Madge from Benidorm.

Malaga Wine – “A rich intoxicating wine red.” Just YES. Everytime. My fail safe/ “go to” colour is usually this – I don’t think there is anything better than a deep classic red.

Lincoln Park after Dark – “Where midnight meets purple.” Definitely my winter colour. Ever since I saw a lady in my yoga class with this on her toes I fell in love with it… Very weird thing to say I know.

The only downside and very apparent thing missing from this set for me is a pillar box red. An essential in any girls nail armoury in my view for a hint of that ultimate Hollywood pin up glamour.IMG_5889

OPI my personal plea to you: Pretty please add a 7th colour to this set and you have an absolute winner!

I bought this set from Leeds Bradford Airport – an absolute steal for £16.50 – and I would definitely recommend as a lover of OPI polishes!

    I am very daring with my nail colours. At the moment I have each tip a different pastel colour. I tend to go for tips so that the grow out isn’t as obvious. I get my nails done every 4 weeks roughly, and I have infills as my nails aren’t strong enough on their own. I don’t paint my fingernails myself, I always have a gel colour when I go to the nail bar which I find lasts really well for the four weeks until I go again. My fave colours are metallic, greens and blues.

      I always used to have tips or gel but I’ve started having an IBX treatment to strengthen and repair my natural nails & I’m starting to really see the benefit. Have had about 4 treatments now and they’re already longer and getting strong. Before they’d just peel and break, so fingers crossed I’ve had a breakthrough! Jessica KG xx
