I am loving the huge array of colours in Topshop’s nail polish collection. I bought myself a little gift of the pastel lilac coloured polish ‘Parma Violet’ today. I love lilac,and pale grey nails at the moment.
The range is packed with blues, browns, greens, nudes, and fabulous pastels. The regular nail polishes cost £5.00, and the metallic polishes, and crackle polishes cost £6.00.
The crackle polishes are top coats that you apply on top of a nail colour – it cracks and leaves you with a mixture of the underneath and the top coat colour. I would have loved this when I was younger.
My favourite picks from the range – some being ones that I would wear – and some being ones that I would wear, skin tone and age allowing, are as follows –
Sketch – Mink
Flamingo Coral – Coral
Naked – Cream
Crystal Clouds – Champagne
Rainy Day – Fog Grey
Cafe Au Lait – Beige
Utilitarian – Khaki
Threadbare – Creamy Nude
As with the majority of nail polishes – use a base coat, two coats of the colour of your choice, and then a top coat. For regular nails, I love a clear polish that can be used as both a base coat and a top coat, such as Essie’s 3-Way-Glaze which is £8.99 for 15ml, and Topshop do one which I haven’t tried, which is £5.00 for 8ml.
