And so to the beautiful polish that caught my eye in the chemists at the weekend as I stocked on up Ibuprofen and Olbas Oil (again, glamour). These little beauties are Essence quick drying "Colour and Go" polishes, only 1.79 each (cutest bottles ever by the way).
I love this formula, it's super easy to apply (nice wide brush), dries really fast and looks lovely and glossy. English Rose is a lovely pinky/rose/mauvey matte- very pretty on the nail. I was especially impressed with the glitter, Time for Romance, which is a purple based gel containing small and slightly larger circular pink glitter pieces. This applies so well- unusual for a glitter polish like this with glitter pieces this size. I applied two coats of English Rose first as a base colour, although to be honest, one coat would probably have been enough as this was streak free. Old habits die hard! I then applied one coat of Time for Romance, although again, the colour in this was great- two coats on it's own would make for a very pretty nail also. I then threw on two layers of Rimmel top coat, eh voila!
This is an ideal Autumn look and I just can't stop looking at my nails, as tragic as that sounds. They're just so sparkly..and pink. My inner 8 year old is very happy indeed..although not as happy as she'd be if a My Little Pony came with the nail polish too, obviously.
