This is exactly what I’m talking about. Valeria nail polish by Mecca Cosmetica (or to give it its full name, Painted Beauty Glide On nail colour) is a loud and proud aqua cream. No shimmer and no sparkle to distract you, just pure colour that applies in two thin coats. It wears like a demon too; normally I find nail polishes chip and peel after only a day or two, but this looked flawless four days after application.
Imagine the look: black on black on black on black from collar to cuffs, offset by striking aqua nails popping against a coral clutch. Aqua holds its own against the watery winter sunlight too, reflecting back the cooler light of June/July without getting washed out and blah looking.
Seriously y’all. Get on board the winter brights bandwagon with Valeria and leave the dark shades in the dust!
