I don’t buy a lot in Topshop, but I cannot resist their nail polishes. They’re among my favourite brands, both for the colour range and quality. On my last visit I noticed these pastel white speckles. There were an orange, blue, yellow, pink and white as well, but I plumped for the lilac and grey. These were £6 each.
The lilac shade is ‘Everybody Get Up’. The formula is very sheer, this is three coats and you can still see the nail tip line. It has a glossy finish but one which is dulled down by the matte particles in the polish.
The grey is ‘Dancing in the Dark’. This is more of a greige than a straightforward grey. Again, it is very sheer. I find that a little disappointing as I was hoping for more of an opaque finish but I think that pairing this with a coloured base coat would help a lot.
Despite this, I do like these. I no longer really do much nail art, but I enjoy having something a bit different on my nails. This kind of matte, speckle effect is right up my street.
