Stop the presses we have here a momentous occasion! Today I bought a Nail polish that wasn't Barry M. It was in fact the absolutely gorgeous Lavender Love from Gosh's Special Edition Collection and it was just short of £5 in Superdrug.
The picture's really don't do it justice it really is the most beautiful purple I've seen in a long time. It's also the first disaster I've ever had with a nail polish. I really thought I was being clever giving myself a quick manicure before painting my nails, they were all gorgeous and soft from the Soap & Glory Hand Food I had so lovingly rubbed in. Now I'm gathering the polish has reacted with the oils in the moisturiser and the result was this...
Sorry about the quality of the photo my camera took a spasm in the kitchen and just wouldn't focus! It went all weird and holey! Not good at all. Thankfully running a bit of nail polish remover did the trick and the final result looks great!
As usual you can see with the flash on the colour goes a bit blue. A nice blue. But not true to the bottle.
It only took one coat to get this finish and I'm really happy with the result! I'll just have to remember to stick to my usual hand cream from now on during my pre-polish routine.
