My nail polish this week is the lovely (yep, I’ve given the game away already – I like this one) Pink Manicure by Natural Collection. I’ve become a big fan of Natural Collection lately, I think it was their blushers which made me a full on, season ticket holding fan, I even did a blog post about them here.
This pink, as the name would have you believe is designed to be the pink part of a French manicure but because I’m lazy and clumsy I’ve never gone in for doing anything like that myself and bought it purely because I liked the dainty pink colour.
The first photograph shows it applied as 2 coats over a clear base coat and the second shows it applied once over the white matte star of Penny Pinching Polish from last week (yup I removed it from one hand and then it became such a pain to remove from the next that I stopped bothering…lazy mare) – which you can see here.
Applied without a white base Pink Manicure is a glossy, polished version of natural nails but over a white base it is the palest baby pink with the merest tint of blue under tones.
The polish applied evenly, quickly and without smudging. The brush is a little shorter that I would prefer, however that didn’t make for dodgy application. It dried fast without denting and has so far (at the time of taking these photos) lasted 36 hours without chipping (without a top coat). I’m impressed, especially considering Natural Collection nail polishes retail at £1.89 and more often than not the entire Natural Collection range is priced at 3 items for £5. Bargain.
Which nail polish are you wearing today?
P.S. Voting for the Cosmo blog awards closes soon, I’ve been nominated in the Lifestyle catgory – if you’d like to vote for me you can do so here. Thank you!
P.S. Forgive the state of my fingers and nails (as always) I’m due a good and proper manicure to sort them out.
