Nails: Rimmel Lycra Pro Aqua Cool
Pastels might not be quite in season, but I saw the first buds of Spring when out running the other day, and that decided it for me – it was time to break out the sweet and pretty nails.
The Rimmel Lycra Pro in Aqua Cool, £4.49 each, is a deliciously refreshing pale blue. Quick-drying, its quality is more in the speed it dries than how long it lasts (despite its claims of 10-day-wear), and the colour is top-notch, though it does take a couple of coats to get a good shade.
Pastels work well with either a matte or gloss topcoat, and to keep it super-bright and cheerful, I chose a gloss. Here comes Spring!
