Blue Mondays: Revlon & OPI

The week starts off a little bit blue, so why not channel that emotion down to your nails and make blue mondays a little less boring? For the first time in ages I had time to actually do my nails yesterday, so I went for a little summery number from Revlon. Not feeling quite special enough (I’ve barely had time to pee recently, let alone paint my nails so this was exciting times…) I went a step further and added a cheeky layer of OPI glitter from the Katy Perry collection. The Revlon polish on its own sparkles a little and has a great texture, but the OPI polish complimented the blue hues perfectly.

The end result is something to start the week with a bang. Think fireworks and glitter, all wrapped up with a trip to the disco. I love the density of the OPI glitter polishes as you don’t have to spend hours faffing around getting the flecks in the right place; one coat and you’re pretty much done. Catching the light and changing colour like a rainbow, the glitter is so pretty without being sickeningly sweet. Looking down at the keyboard as I type, this has certainly made my Monday as little less blue… I hope it’s cheered you up a little too!

The finished result
