Paul and Joe Nail Polish in 03 Lampshade – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 6 - 2010

I will continue to coo over how pretty these bottles are… Paul & Joe just ‘get it’ don’t they?

I picked up this P&J polish a few weeks ago from the clearance section somewhere in central London, I’ve forgotten which store.  This is by no means indicative of how much I spent or how many stores I visited.  No it isn’t.

Lampshade is an opalescent warm nude that gave me a few problems.  It needed 4 coats for full opacity.  This, I can handle so long as it’s a fast drier.  Lapshade is not a fast drier.

Can you see how it’s kinda lumpy on a my ring finger?  That happened 5 hours after I’d finished painting (and seche viteing!).  I slid my hand under my thigh whilst watching TV and the nail got pressed into the sofa and emerged 20 seconds later looking like someone had taken a blow torch to it.  I wasn’t amused.  Especially not after 4 coats.

Otherwise, it’s a pretty polish… very girly, very feminine and soft.

Paul & Joe nail polishes retail for around £9 each.

    What a pretty bottle and shade!

    Too bad about how slow it dries. I hate when that happens.

    Its really stunning, as is the bottle, shame about the drying time though, you’d think they’d have invented an ingredient to dry nail polishes in super fast time by now, huh! X

    Not mad about the shade once applied, preferring the tangerine shade you have, but i agree, paul and joe nailed the presentation once again. hands down, the prettiest package of all the beauty products out there. i didnt even know of paul and joe before your blog xx

    Very pretty bottle, but i’m not overawed with the shade, although Lampshade is a good name for it!
