There are colours in life that make each of us happier. Evoke smiles. Bring a touch of sunshine to our days.

For me, this is coral. I really love it’s rich but uplifting hue. It’s nectarine, terracotta, warming orange shade means the start of holidays to my brain.

It might only be nearing April but this week I have surrounded myself with it. From a new spring dress, the lippy I have been lusting after, and of course a new polish I have been meaning to try.

My lovely new dress was an impulsive purchase which totally fed my retail therapy needs. Now it’s officially spring I of course feel like I ‘need’ a new wardrobe. It was worn for this weeks date night with the boy and made me feel great. Sadly the tapas restaurant we went to was a real let down.   Recently, I recieved a sample for the newest lipstick from CHANEL, Arthur. It is fabulous. The embodiment of my favourite shade. Really lifting to the complexion. I wore it with the new dress and I was actually asked if I’d been on holiday as I looked glowing. Praise indeed.

   The nail. VB, Victoria Beckam’s, Judo Red for Nails Inc. A present from my lovely co-workers. I have been meaning to blog about it for quite a while, thinking at first it was a red. When I discovered it was in fact an orange coral red, I decided to wait until Spring had sprung.

The packaging impeccable. Much like her fashion collection, simple, feminine, clean lines that evoke understated luxury. The box, chic white. Clean lines with a pop of colour peeking out from the side of the varnish. Beautifully bold. 

The application. Fluid, a one sweep brush. Now, I personally like Nails Inc varnish. Some do not think it gives a professional finish. I however think they are always reliable. It is lovely and  opaque. Super shiny.

I completed the look with Seche Vite, my favourite Top Coat. I can’t wait to combine all three tomorrow. Bright, beautiful Monday here I come!
