Nails of the Day: Kiss Me On My Tulips

There's something about choosing the colour nail varnish for my holiday that completely captures the excitement and hopefulness of the pre-getaway build up for me.

This year was no exception, having had no more than a couple of days away, let alone a good stint on a beach since last July, I was completely ready for my latest trip to Ibiza.

Now for the last few years I've always been drawn back to a coral varnish but when I saw this shade from the new OPI Holland Collection Spring/Summer 2012 I knew this was the one for me.

Inspired when I saw my friend Amy jet off to Marbs with a pink manicure, I didn't hesitate to buy Kiss Me On My Tulips. This was the perfect colour I was looking for to take me from bronzed goddess by the pool (ha!) into a glam party look for the evening - this was great as it was striking but without being gaudy or tacky.

Not only am I happy with the colour, but this varnish has lasted brilliantly. It lasted six days without chipping on my fingers - that's with Nailtiques step 1 as a base and top coat, and its been two weeks on my toes and still going strong.

I've given my nails a few days break and I'll definitely be re-doing them ready to jet off to Marbs with the girls tomorrow. Kiss Me On My Tulips - great shade, long lasting - the perfect holiday varnish!

What colour will you be painting your nails for your holiday?



  1. Those are the most perfectly painted nails I have ever seen! How do you do it?!?!

    1. Thanks Natalie!

      If you've seen my previous nail posts, I talk about my love for OPI... I never buy anything else as I love the colours, the quality of the varnish and I swear by the fact it is the easiest polish to apply.

      I'm sure its something to do with the quality and shape of the brush but its very easy - even for someone cackhanded like me! I bought one that was a glittery varnish before and it didn't seem to apply so well - it felt like an old bottle that had been open for a long time! Reckon it must be something to do with certain textures of polish though xxx

  2. This is such a nice shade, what a lovely, glossy finish too x

    1. Thanks Holly, it was the perfect holiday colour as I said - just trying to decide whether to go for it again for Ibiza in September or to do something new...

      I've ordered a gorgeous shade I've had my eye on for a while now!
