Weekly Nails #4
I grabbed this polish in a 3-for-2 deal at Boots the other week on a spur-of-the-moment. I don't really do dark polishes - I tend to go for pastels or brights - so I thought it would make a nice change, and in fact the formula of this Stylenomics polish is far nicer than the other Essie nail polishes I own. I'm not sure if this is because it's a new collection and they've changed it slightly, or something to do with the pigmentation or something else. Either way it applies more smoothly and seems to stay glossy and intact for longer. The colour itself I wasn't too keen on at first; in the bottle under the (very) bright lights in the shop it was definitely a deep, foresty green but on the nail it definitely comes across as much darker, black from a distance. I still like it on my nails but the difference in colour between bottle and nail surprised me a little. You can pick it up in Boots as part of the new A/W collection for £7.99.
