the coup london blog fashion neon orangeWith Christmas done and dusted, I’m all about the countdown to New Year. I landed in Berlin this morning, ready to welcome to 2015. With that in mind, I opted for fun, neon orange nails; my favourite. You should see what these look like under a UV light…

Hope you had a lovely festive break

Two things you’ll never catch me without; firstly, some cute gold details. I usually buy my stacking rings from H&M in bulk. Inexpensive, quirky and easily replaceable if you lose them which I do all too often. Secondly, for me gel nails are a must. They’re the way forward and I can’t remember the last time I used polish. It’s definitely a few years ago now though. Not only do they last for ages (about two weeks) and stay looking fresh but they also help sustain your nail growth. Pretty much a perfect solution to annoying nail varnish which never went beyond a day. I own a Sensationail Kit. It’s a much more cost-effective way to always having great looking nails.

This week she convinced me to step out of my comfort zone and try something a little out there. Well at least for me. This gel polish by Bluesky, which has aptly been called Frosty Forest, is uber cute. Years ago I use to use Calgel on my nails but after discovering shellacs that’s all I ever go for. They are so convenient, not too harsh and can easily be applied independently.
