This week i'm loving - Vibrant red nail polish

Knockout - c/o Liz Earle

There's one colour nail polish I come back to time and time again. Red. I like my red polish to be very bright and vibrant - it needs to make a statement. Many nail polishes fall short but I think i've found a keeper in this Liz Earle beauty. With orange undertones, it really is a bright pillarbox red. The best kind of red! I find I need to apply two coats for it to make the maximum impact.

Aptly named Knockout, this polish features avocado and borage oils to help strengthen your nails. I don't know about you but I find when i'm sporting coloured fingernails for a long period of time, my nails are very brittle and flaky by the time it comes off. So i'm very pleased this polish helping my nails in the long run.

It does promise to last chip free for up to 12 days but i'm afraid this doesn't hold true for me. I tend to get around 4 days before it starts to look scruffy. This is still nothing short of a miracle for me though. I work at a computer everyday and find my polishes are lucky if they last a few hours so I was very pleaased with 4 days! At £7.50 a bottle, I really do think they offer great value for money and will be purchasing more in the future.

Have you tried the nail polish range from Liz Earle? They have some very pretty colours!

  4. What a lovely shade of red. I always think red nail polish looks so classic.

  5. ...This color. I need this color. I'm not even the biggest fan of bright reds (when it comes to red, I like 'em more like wine) but this is gorgeous. It's like a fierce red-orange.

  6. This is such a beautiful colour! x

  7. I count myself lucky if I get 24 hours chip free! x

  8. Love this red! Always better when it's slightly orange-y, lush :) <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  9. You can't beat a red nail varnish x
