Bourjois 1 seconde nail polish* in 06 Rose Cupcake
Accessorize nail polish* in Dance

My nails of the day aren’t that spectacular or groundbreaking to be honest, but definitely fun nonetheless! The accent nail is such a saving grace when you are torn between two colours and today it was tricky decision between the pretty rose-pink of Bourjois’ 1 seconde polish and the vivid blue of Accessorize’s nail colour in Dance. So I indulged in both! Each product give a stunning, flawless colour after two coats and dries to a lovely, smooth finish. The Accessorize polish was particularly impressive especially for a meagre £2.95 and the Bourjois number has a silicone-gel formula which means it is ultra-glossy and stays chip-free for an admirable length of time.

    I love an accent nail. Usually do nude nails with a glitzy accent, or add some nail stickers.
    Love both shades you've used.
    p.s And thanks for the comment on my blog – I'm seriously considering shaving part of my hair! :S Maybe after the wedding.

    I love the accessorize nail polishes – I had a pale pink shade which was my favourite nail polish ever but it smashed in my suitcase while I was travelling! πŸ™
    haven't done an accent nail before but tempted to give it a try πŸ™‚

    I really like an accent nail, I always seem to use a glitter polish though I need to get a bit bolder with my colours, these two look great together! x
