Monday's Manicure

Currently listening to: Bye Bye Bye by NSync

Good morning girls!

I feel this week at work is going to be one of stress so the least I can do is have a manicure that makes me feel good, right?

I decided to try out one of my new Nails Inc polishes which I got with Glamour magazine, the darkest of the four available shades, Victoria.

As I've found with a lot of polishes this dark, it's difficult to capture the true colour of it. At times it looks dark brown, at times it looks blood red.

Application caused no problems and the finish was very glossy (although I did seal it was a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat afterwards).

Here you can see what it looks like with two coats. Adding another coat would have brought out the darker brown tones I think but I was happy with this result.

What do you think girls? Did you pick up any of the polishes Glamour were offering this month?

Bye for now,

  4. I'v been lusting after a great vampy colour like this for a long time, and this one looks like the very one I need!
    *note to self - RUN to corner shop and grab copy of glamour now!!!* =P

  5. @Mimi, thank you! I'm looking forward to the weekend already, lol. As for the nail polish, it's definitely a colour worth having in your collection :-)

    @Rainbowify Me, thanks :-) So glossy heehee

    @Princess, thank you!

    @TheOtherSideOfCool, thanks :-) It's funny, I would never wear black polish but I'm perfectly happy wearing this one even though it's not that much lighter than black.

    @Polish and Charms, thanks!

    @Sara, I think unknowingly I had been after a dark shade like this too although without the red tones. Still, I'm happy with it. Surprised to see most of the colours still widely available at newsagents so don't think you'll have a problem finding it.

    @Fingers, it's great isn't it!

    @Sandra, :-)
