H&M – Envy Me Nail Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 24 - 2010

When I was in H&M last week, my attention was diverted (as always) by the polishes on display.  I already own Goddess on Stage (a TDF purple) and just looking at the bottle, I could tell this was gonna be a knockout.

I wasn’t wrong!

Envy Me is a beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL shimmering emerald green.  It practically dances on my nails.

Opaque in one coat, it needs two for a flawless finish – the formula was not that far off being perfect.  All for £2.99 – is that even legal?

My photo is pants, I need to find a window which doesn’t have so many smaller panes of glass in it… the reflection really screws with the overall look.  But anyway…

If you haven’t tried the H&M polishes yet, why not?

I also picked up Spending Cash with Carl which looks like a royal blue version of this and Grey Sky which looks like a shimmery putty grey.

Do you have any H&M favs?

    i got this and spending cash with carl too 😮

    I think it looks quite similar to china glaze’s emerald fitzgerald, but I don’t have it (yet)

    That looks fabulous.
    I’ve only tried one H&M polish, a lovely purple called Fashionista, but it chips so fast and so extensively that it put me off trying any other colours.

  4. Lucy says:

    This is really pretty – I normally hate green colours so that is a big step for me to say that!

  5. oooh I want to see Grey Sky, am really into greys at the moment and am practically wetting myself at the Chanel Khakis! x

  6. That looks lovely! Haven’t tried the H&M polishes, something more for my wishlist I think!

    Hi Charlotte. I love how you paint your nails! As a recently reformed nail biter, I’m just getting into polish (have just indulged on the Models Own 50% off sale!). Your nails are always really neat, can you explain how you get such neat lines? Thanks in advance! x

    That’s a stunning metallic green, I wouldn’t have ever guessed it was H&M, not in a million years!!!

    i know i know, all fine and dandy this but it’s so hard to find a H & M with a beauty and makeup section :( this polish is to die for xx

    This polish is gorg! I can not believe it came from H&M! Shocked! I bet I can’t find this polish this side of the Atlantic. Perhaps I will have to wait 3 weeks to I move to your side. Hoepfully it doesn’t sell out by then.

  11. Julia says:

    Dorothy would like that very much :)

  12. oh i love H&M polishes, they rival the top brands for colours and quality!

  13. Sarah B. says:

    Gorgeous!!

    Looks great on you!!

  14. gio says:

    Wow, I need that! It looks gorgeous!

  15. GlamGemini says:

    Ooooh I was noseying at the polishes in H&M last week, where the heck does it say what the colour is? that was the only thing I couldn’t find haha x

  16. I LOVE it! It looks scrumptious! Can I buy it in the U.S.?

  17. Sally says:

    I tried a H&M polish for the first time last week and was surprised at how good the quality was. It was Grey Skies, which is such a gorgeous shade. Unfortunately, my nearest H&M is a bit deficient in the beauty section with really not very much to choose from, so I may have to venture further afield. By the looks of this one it’ll be totally worth it.

    Love your blog Charlotte, I’m hooked.

  18. Sirvinya says:

    Oooooh! That is gorgeous!

  19. Grace says:

    I can’t believe I’ve worked for H&M for two years without trying their polishes. I will definitely be abusing my staff discount come payday, thanks for the heads-up! :)

  20. tass says:

    This is friggin gorgeous!

  21. I hate it when companies call green polishes (or eyeshadows!) anything with Envy in the name, but this is soooo pretty

  22. It’s a nice green but i bought the other green at H&M called No Mambo Jambo, you’ll find my swatches on my site :)

    Hi! I’ve never tried an H&M nail polish but this one is really wonderful!!! =)
