Cornflower Sky Blue Nails


Anyone who follows me on Instagram will have seen me post pics of a fleeting seaside visit with family last week… we stayed in a beach house that was literally a few metres from the sand and were blessed with beautiful weather. I couldn’t resist painting my nails the colour of the glorious blue sky, using a new shade of SensatioNail gel polish, Intriguing Iris. It’s a gorgeous cornflower blue with a subtle silver shimmer if you look really closely, not a million miles from Essie Bikini So Teeny (see my swatches).


SensatioNail is a home gel kit by Nailene and one of my favourite beauty gadgets, which you’ll have heard me rave about many times over the years ('how to' post). If you prefer regular nail polish, Barry M Gelly Shine in Blueberry or Nails Inc Regents Place are also very similar shades. I think this is one of the most flattering blues on my skin tone - some look too cold or icy, so if you’ve found the same you might like to give cornflower a go!


View from the garden of my kids strolling along the beach, which they had pretty much to themselves the entire time we were away - and to my surprise, neither complained about missing screen time! Wouldn’t it be great if it was like this all the time…

Best of the cornflower blues…
