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 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.

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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! :)

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