Do you remember when you were a kid and your cousins came round? They were in YOUR domain… you were in charge. Let’s face it… only you knew where the biscuit barrel was hidden.
The afternoon would be progressing nicely… a little bit of bossiness on your part (it IS your house afterall)… perhaps inching towards a small amount of rowdiness… which may or may not have included biscuit hogging…
then… BAM! “Stop showing off!” my your Mum would shout.
Stop. Showing. Off.
Those three words would have me beetroot red for the next 6 hours and reduce me to a whimpering, sullen shadow of my former custard cream party leader self.
Someone needs to tell this H&M polish to stop showing off.
Enough. Too much. Simmer down now. Get to bed.
I get that it’s clearly striking… it’s purdy and it’s bright. It does things that no £3 nail polish should really be able to do. The shimmer is complex and the hue so vivid, my retinas are screaming for salvation.
But it’s too much. It just doesn’t know when to stop.
Some of you will disagree with me… and that’s cool… but in the bottle (and I still don’t have my new camera so can’t actually SHOW you)… it doesn’t look so obnoxious. It looked all midnight blue with an incredible glow – I wanted what you can see above to be apparent, but subtle.
And this ain’t subtle.
As for all that other stuff? Application… wear… I can’t remember, this mani is about 3 weeks old now and I didn’t write it down – sorry!
On a completely unrelated note… this is my 1000th post! Oh my… *fans self* – I’m not sure whether to be proud or embarrassed!
