Where are Captain Pugwash and Master Bates?

This season is all about all things Nautical and Sally (the UK’s largest supplier of professional hair and beauty products) have launched their limited edition range of Nautically inspired Nail varnishes, featuring bold colours such as Starboard, Below Deck and First Mate or in none nautical terms Green Crème, Dusty Purple Crème and Rich Navy Crème.

Designed to work with this seasons Nautical colours and styles, these nail varnishes are fun, hard wearing and chip free and will be available for a limited time of 4 months from February to May 2011 direct from Sally stores across the UK’s High Streets.

I tested Ahoy (Intense Pink) and just loved it. I do have a bit of a thing about painted toe and fingernails have done ever since I was a little girl and I experimented with my mothers nail varnishes! This pink is a deep intense bright pink that had a hundred sparkles in it that seem to dance on your nails as the light hits them. It’s extremely fun and perfect for on your toes. I’m not sure it’s a colour I would wear with confidence on my finger nails, but I’m certain on a younger girl it would look great, perhaps teamed with a blue and white stripped T-shirt to completed the nautical look.

You could also choose between these great sounding colours 

Life Preserver – Luxurious Crème Poppy

Hey Sailor – Vibrant Crème Red

Lighthouse – Bright yellow

White Cap – Sparkling White

Pelican Grey – High Shine Grey Crème

Sea Spray – Pale Blue Crème

Sunset Sail – Peachy Pink High Shine Crème

Knotty – Shimmering Bashful Beige

As with any nail varnish there is always the danger that it will take an age to dry and before you reaslise you’ve scuffed or scratched the polish. With this polish it seems to dry really quickly and even felt strong and chip resistant before it was completely dry. With the addition of a topcoat it would be near on impossible to chip and I experienced no colour fading and certainly no wearing off on the ends of my nails and I didn’t give it an easy time with a fun packed Easter weekend.

With a huge range of colours to choose from these will certainly add fun to your nail varnish collection and are a must for pretty hands and feet this summer and if you cant decide which nautical colour to choose, Sally has the answer with Anchors Away Mini Pack for £7.99.
