When I was in London last week I was on the hunt for some of the new Accessorize Illusion nail polishes… you know, the duochrome ones. Sadly, I only found one solitary polish and I nearly had to beat someone up to get my hands on it first. It’s ok, I only broke a couple of her fingers… she can always paint the other hand.
It was totally worth it though right? Look at those gorgeous purple/green/amber flashes! *dies*
Please excuse my death-warmed up hands… we were having double glazing fitted and the house was an ice-box sans windows. My hands were ready to drop right off.
What d’ya think?
That is a bloody gorgeous duochrome to feed our inner 8 year old’s craving for something PURRRRRRDY right?
Application isn’t too shabby but it did need a good 3 coats and a healthy splodge of quick dry top coat for optimum shininess. Wear has been good… no chips, just some minor tip wear. Removal was a bit of a pain thanks to the glittery bits but othing too soul destroying.
My niece came over yesterday and the first thing I did was thrust my nails in her face and demand to know if she’d ever seen anything like so completely amazing? She looked at me in the way only a 7 year old can when embarrassed by someone old enough to know better.
But she agreed, it was pretty cool.
Priced at £4 each for 10ml… Accessorize Nail Polishes are available instore (though I can only ever find a couple – usually by the tills), online (full selection) and I believe they’re coming to/are already in Superdrug? Or did I imagine that bit…
Anyway, the moral of the story is… go and hunt them down, even if it means maiming your fellow shoppers in the process.
