Nail of the Day: Carnival Madness!

Not a particularly original post title I know, but we can't all be awesome all the time... I'm off to a Hen party tomorrow and I have lots of bits and pieces to get done before I leave. I'm hoping to schedule a post for tomorrow evening, but if I don't you can go ahead and assume I've prioritised packing clothes and booking train tickets! :)

I wanted something fairly colourful on my nails for the weekend, and after much deliberation (it honestly took at least 30 minutes of looking at my nail wheels and polishes) I decided that e.l.f. Metal Madness and Technic Carnival would go rather well together (now do you understand the title?) Metal Madness is a must have polish from e.l.f.- at first it looks like a generic gunmetal grey shade, but in the light you can see lots of tiny multicoloured shimmer particles, it's rather unique :) Carnival is also a brilliant polish- it does smell pretty potent, but it's a great cheap dupe for OPI Rainbow Connection- I love multicoloured glitter!








And because I think it came out kinda cool:



Despite not being able to take brilliant photographs (either my camera has suddenly decided to hate me, my few photography skills have vanished or the lighting I use has changed without my knowledge....) I really love this combination- the rainbow glitter doesn't look too in-your-face-crazy, and it brightens Metal Madness nicely :)

 What are your must have polishes?
