Topshop Haul

On Monday I popped into town to hunt for a pair of blue jeans, I found some finally in Marks and Spencer of all places however whilst in town I did go into Topshop.

I had a look at their vast collection of nail polishes which I have to say I've pretty much fell in love with! I already have two from the range with those being two glitter ones which are probably my favourite glitter polishes to date. I had however not tried their normal colour polishes so I went ahead and picked up two colours with these being 'Crystal Clouds' and 'Rainy Day'.

Crystal Clouds is from the metallic polish range therefore it cost a little more at £6 compared to Rainy Day at £5.

I can honestly say that having used 'Crystal Clouds' already that the colour is beyond beautiful once applied, I love it so much! It is a gorgeous champagne colour for Christmas,  I urge you all to get a little bottle as a treat for yourselves. I used two coats but I reckon you could easily get away with just one with this polish.

The opposite however can be said for 'Rainy Day' which is a nice shade of grey/purple once on but I think you need at least 2/3 coats before this looks opaque which is slightly annoying. It is however a nice polish and I'm glad I have it, I just find it so strange how big a difference there is between the two; this isn't putting me off choosing my next shade to buy though.Both polishes however have lasted well so far without chipping and that was without a topcoat.

I'm sure you can all see my monkey necklace making a cheeky appearance! I'm in love with this at the moment; I haven't taken it off apart from when I'm in bed and in the shower. This was in the sale for £2.50, with the original price being £8.50 I think.

Has anybody else had bad/good experiences with Topshop nail polishes? I want to buy more! Any recommendations folks?

  2. Oooh I bought some topshop polishes just yesterday too - I got a metallic gold called 'glimmer' which looks similar to yours but I think maybe I prefer 'cystal clouds'! 'Rainy day' is on my wishlist along with 'green room' - Topshop nails are my fave!

    Also I wish I'd spotted that monkey necklace in my store when I looked at the sale jewellery - I love it! x

  7. Necklace is so cute! And such a good barg, and both nail polishes are lovely! I do like topshop nail polishes but I always resent spending five or six pounds on those tiny bottles when the models own ones are so much bigger and the same price.

    1. I know what you mean about the price, I'm willing to pay a little more however for something which lasts well. Plus, the HUGE Boots here does not stock Models Own...what is with that?!
      Thanks Georgia :)
