Today I have another of the new polishes from M&S’s new line, the ‘Limited Collection’ (does anyone know whether this means they are limited edition?). Cappuccino is a wonderful neutral shade, fab formula and very flattering.
This one is perfect for the office, a wonderfully conservative colour with just a hint of gold glassfleck shimmer – enough to give it a unique warmth but not enough to make it inappropriate for work. The colour is also buildable – in the last photo (above) my ring finger has just 1 coat, which gives a lighter, warmer finish but totally streak-free. I think this would look lovely at 1 coat over a neutral polish like Ciaté My Fair Lady, to hide the free edge but give that warm tone to it. 2 coats and it gets a bit cooler.
No complaints. The photos all show 2 coats (other than my ring finger in the final large pic which is 1 coat). The polish gave a very even finish in terms of pigmentation and dried quickly. I really can’t fault this also it had no signs of wear throughout the time I wore it and was very easy to apply (those are about the neatest I’ve ever managed to paint my nails in my LIFE).
Personally I prefer the warm tone of the polish at 1 coat but I know a lot of ladies just lurve a lovely greige, and this adds a nice gold-glassfleck twist to the traditional greige polish. Very flattering and also subtle enough for the more conservative polish-wearer. I love this one.
Cappuccino retails at £3.50 and is available in Marks & Spencer and on the Marks & Spencer website. Fabulous price for fabulous quality and colour, oh and it’s also cruelty-free (BUAV Approved)! What do you think? Is it something you’d wear? I for one am not really a greige-girl, but something about this has me hooked!
