on topshop nail polish review - grunge

While I'm sure you're all dazzled by my photography skills, I assure you, while there is a bit too much flash, the colour match is pretty much spot on. Anyway...this guy is part of Topshop's Heavy Duty make-up range and goes by the name of Grunge. It's sort of a murky grey colour with hints of khaki and gold leanings. Anyway it's pretty gorgeous and safe to say it's my A/W colour of choice.
I'm actually pleasantly surprised at the quality of Topshop's nail polish. I found it applies fairly easily (and quick drying, which is always a bonus) and it only really needs one coat to provide an even finish. It's chipped already...but I think that's more to do with me being jeopardy friendly and not investing in a good base coat more than anything else. Overall though I'm actually quite impressed, and while the £6 price tag did make me flinch a little bit inside (I'm used to things more in the Barry M price spectrum) it's definitely worth it, and the really cute packaging pretty much sells it.
Suffice to say I'll be going back for Future and Lead then.....

  9. It looks like a lovely colour, I'm really into the disney villian mac ones at the moment. They have so many different metalic shades in one varnish!
