First of all, I’ve had nail envy for square-ended nails since forever, so I tried it, and I absolutely hate it on me. I’m going to give it a few days to see if my hatred subsides but I don’t think it will… Anyway, if the squareness of my nails on my fingers offends you as much as it does me, I’m really sorry! It makes me sad because it looks lovely on other people. Maybe it’s my technique, I don’t know. Anyway, if you can hold down the vomit then go ahead!
Wild Lilac is a beautiful blue-toned lilac creme. I’m curious as to how similar this is to OPI’s recent ‘Planks A Lot’ from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection as looking at online photos it does look fairly close!
This polish is opaque in two coats, and applies beautifully and evenly. It dries relatively quickly (not Barry M slow nor BeautyUK fast), and dries with a high gloss, so there really isn’t much of a need for top coat, unless you’re planning on wearing this for more than 2 days. Consistency is lovely. Retails at £5 in Superdrug and is one of the few polishes actually available from the Superdrug website.
For anyone interested, I was required to read out my short story for the awards thingy, but I managed to persuade them to let my brother do it for me haha. It was hosted by Citi, and afterwards they basically plugged Citi and showed us ‘a trade’, but the real highlight of the trip for me was going up to the 42nd (top) floor of the building, which gave a fabulous view of London. Of course it was raining, it would be, hence the not-so-amazing photo above, but this was just one of our many views. I’ve never been to Canary Wharf or the Docklands before so it was lovely to see a new area of London, albeit briefly.
How are you all doing? I feel bad that I’ve neglected my blog over the last week, I wore Eyeko’s Saucy Red polish for this awards thingy but I had a fair amount of tipwear after clinging on for my life on the beloved Underground haha so I felt a bit ashamed to put pics up, however I will definitely be wearing it again soon so look out for it 😉 anyway I really am sorry for not blogging. I just feel absolutely exhausted all the time, which I suppose is the combined effect of being over-stressed and my anaemia haha. Life could be so much worse, I just am one of those people who makes mountains out of molehills 😛
