I love beauty products in general but judging by my collection...nail varnish is my true beauty passion! I think something as simple as having neat nails makes a big difference to someones overall appearance because it shows attention to detail, don't know if that sounds silly or not! By adding colour and design to nails it can spice up an outfit or tie in accessories to an outfit. I NEVER have bare nails unless I'm swapping nail varnish, which must be really bad for nails but I just feel naked. I always make sure I use a base coat to try and protect my nails as much as possible. My post on my choice of base coat/top coat is here: http://bellabellebeauty.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/first-base.html
I've been looking for different ways to do my nails as having them all one colour all the time can get a bit boring for me, specially when you do them as often as me! I've started having my ring finger nail a different colour, patterns, multi-coloured or 'ombre' nails.
I bought some nail guide stickers on eBay and once you've got the hang of using them its so easy. I usually paint my nails first, and wait at least a few hours or a day before sticking the sticker on otherwise when you take it off it takes some of the nail varnish with it. Basically you stick the sticker on paint the base/tip of your nail with a different colour and then peel the sticker off! Easy Peasy! I have put some photos of what I did with mine and some photos of the other styles I'm loving at the moment below.
