Nails of the day: Urban Outfitters 'Hot Tub'

So today I had a nice chilled out afternoon watching the tennis and doing my nails what more could I ask for really on such a gorgeous day. I say chilled out but the tennis match between Djokovic and Nadal was not chilled out in the slightest, boy those boys can run around!

In a bid to make myself feel more in tune with the weather I chose a really bright summer nail polish as it is stunning outside. Therefore, embracing the sun I decided to put on Urban Outfitters 'Hot Tub' nail polish which is bright neon pink; gorgeous!

























I was extremely lucky to win this polish along with a bunch of other awesome stuff from the lovely Caroline over at Burkatron, if you haven't already seen her blog then please head over and have a browse, I think she is amazing!

I'm totally smitten with this nail polish, the application I think is beautiful and I think if it hadn't have been neon I would have easily have been able to have got away with just the one coat. I used two to be completely content with my nails and I was just amazed at the quality and how bloomin' bright they are, I love this colour!
























I must confess I struggled to get an exact representation of the colour on the camera; this polish needs to be seen in the flesh in order to see it in full glory however I do hope that you can get some kind of idea as to what this would be like on.

This nail polish came all the way over from the USA so it is available over there for any of my American readers, woo hoo! For those in the UK I think from having a quick browse that Models Own Bubblegum would be a good alternative to this.

  15. I can only imagine what this color looks like in person! Urban Outfitter's have some pretty nice colors so I wonder if all the others hold the same formula! Gorgeous, gorgeous color! :)

    1. I wonder indeed! I would like to think so as I quite liked the application, a definite smooth finish. I do think a good top coat is needed but most nail polishes do not last very well on me to be honest so a top coat is always needed xx

  16. Those neon nails can be so hard to do justice photograph-wise, especially since they are so bright and glowy! This looks like the perfect pick-me-up colour, and then some :) (Also, I didn't watch that match but as a Novak Djokovic tragic I am still recovering from the heartache of just seeing the scoreline haha. Though I did read your Tweets about the match so I guess you're happy with the result :p)

    1. They really are difficult, I will keep persevering :)

      Oh no! My boyfriend is a big Djokovic fan so he was rather gutted to see him go out, he played so well though and it was so close for quite a while, no idea what happened in that third set though! I was really glad to see Nadal back as has been injured for a bit now so I wanted him to get back to the top quickly :D

      I'm sure Djokovic will be doing well in Wimbledon, it starts soon so you best get your strawberries and cream at the ready! xx
