I was in Boots today looking for a lipgloss, and I got talking to the Estee Lauder woman. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw some random blingy-ness, which turned out to be a range of their polishes I hadn't seen before. This one caught my eye:
Well, I had a base coat already on my nails (I always go shopping with base coat on in case I want to try some), so I tried a few out. They weren't all as brill as I thought they would be. These are all just one coat:
The purple on my thumb I especially didn't like, it managed somehow to give me pink-finger when it wasn't even a red! But the purple that had caught my eye in the first place still had potential, so I bought it. It cost me £14.50:
It's worth bearing this very pretty packaging in mind, as it means it would make a brill xmas present which would be very easy to wrap indeed!
So lets get on to the swatches, I took quite a few pictures. These are all 2 coats with no top coat. I wish I'd done one more coat really. Formulation was quite thin and workable and highly pigmented. I found the brush ever so slightly too bendy. It's a little bit self deleting if you go over the same spot too many times.
First one's at the window:
Next we have under the craft (l.e.d.) lighting:
Next we have under the kitchen lights:And then, the obligatory bottle shot, which I took while I was in the window:
I'm starting to wonder if I should put a watermark on my pictures, what do you think, is picture theft a big problem these days? Anyway, I digress.....
All in all, I loved this, the pink microglitter showed up even in low light, and under most lighting it looked like a blackberry colour foil. I don't own anything like this, and although I don't wear dark colours alot I think this will be this winters party colour for me! What do you think of it?
Until next time...
