Natio Metallic Stardust Mani!




Hello! Apologies for the lack of posts lately, I've had one sickness after another for a while now (and I'm so over it, to be frank!). Consequently, I've been rather slack with painting my nails, so I decided to throw a bottle of polish in my handbag to apply at my son's Lacrosse practice during the week. Outside. In the elements. Because ants, wind and dirt are never a problem, right? Anyhoo, I completed this earthy manicure (two coats, no top coat) in record time, with the bottle balanced precariously on a wooden post, and only a couple of Mums giving me weird looks. I've had this nail colour for a while now (I'm talking years) and it was kind of gloopy and thick, especially whilst applying the second coat. In retrospect it would have been wiser to apply this sparkly hue indoors, in two thin coats, but hey, c'est la vie!

So here we have Natio Metallic Nail Colour in Stardust. The edges are a little rough and I probably should have gone in with some cuticle cream..... but I didn't.

  2. Metallic polishes are always so tricky when it comes to getting a perfect even finish. This one is really pretty though. I love the antique gold kind of shade.

  5. I spend so much time waiting around for my kids too, it's good to do something useful and practical like painting your nails whilst your waiting for them to finish their training! I love the metallic shade. It's so unique!

  9. It's a really flattering colour isnt it? I get so impatient with nail polish if I even apply it, I only use the quick dry versions. Then I apply the cover that is quick dry too. Me? Impatient? Ha! Thanks for linking up #lifethisweek 11/52 Next week: Autumn

  12. Gold is one of my favourite nail polish colours. I like to paint my nails black and then do accents with gold. It looks awesome.

  15. Lovely colour Di, and goes so perfectly with your "au naturel" backdrop. I'm in awe of anyone who can paint their nails half decently, but outside on the game field sidelines? You have my utmost admiration babe xxx

  16. I don't do my finger nails much at all, it wears off with me so quickly. I imagine what this would look like on my toes though, which I always have polish on. I feel naked without it!
