Nail Lacquer Session #1

L to R: 568 Metallic Purple, 550 Purple Heart, 603 Rusty, 597 Miss Minty
It's been awhile since I've been able to wear nail polish on my fingernails. For the longest time I worked in a restaurant and then in a spa.  Now that i'm at a job where I polish on my nails is not an issue....I've gone a little overboard. I love polish and being so deprived for so long I got a little eager beaver-ish. I purchased a few lacquers from Gosh for the first time, they were on sale for about $5 each. I must say for a $5 polish these babies are pretty good. 

  • great coverage and pigment
  • easy application 
  • lasts about 3 days before it starts chipping, and even then it does not chip very much, maybe 1 or 2 nail tips

Metallic Purple: A little too frosty for my taste
Rusty: Had a surprising shimmer to it and had amazing application
Purple Heart: My favourite out of all four. The colour was amazing! In dim lighting it almost looks green, regular lighting it's purple and in very bright lighting it looks black. Interesting polish.
Miss Minty: Your typical mint green polish for Spring 2012. Nice creamy colour and looks nice with a glossy finish or with a matte top coat as well.

Last weekend I went into the Urban Outfitters on Queen St. in Toronto and found a wicked deal! I got this nail polish set for sale $4.99, regular price $24.99!
Stay tuned for the post on these bad boys!
