Hello Autumn! An Autumnal NOTD with Beauty UK and Inglot

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 8 - 2011

There’s nothing like an el-cheapo nail polish to quench that insatiable itch to buy something.  I was walking round town last week and felt the need to scratch.  Still recovering from the new lens purchase (it may be some time), I dived into Superdrug for something that wouldn’t break the bank and emerged triumphant with this little beauty…

…BeautyUK to be precise.  Voodoo – No. 55 (£1.99) is an absolute cracking shade for Autumn, a deep russet with a playful shimmer that glows in the right light.  Two coats to achieve opacity, I did get a tiny bit of bubbling on one nail which made me a little more careful with the application than I might normally be.

After admiring my manicure for half a day, I decided, beautiful though it is, I wanted moar Autumn.  I dug out my Inglot Flakie #205 and slapped on a coat…

Now we’re talking!  I see toffee apples, fallen leaves, crisp afternoons and misty mornings.  Brrr… c’mon Autumn, I’m ready for you!

Are you ready for Autumn?  Digging out your vampier shades yet?

  1. Gorgeous Autumn mani! I always feel sad that our Superdrug sells BeautyUK and not MUA, but this might change my mind. Sorry if I am being a bit thick, but where do you get your Inglot polish from? I can’t find an online stockist.

    Any polish that makes me see toffee apples is a winner, it’s been years since I had one.

    Golden fall leaves. Absolutely love this. Do you remember how much the Inglot polish costs?

    I was looking at this thinking I don’t need another red polish. But then wait, I don’t have one with gold shimmer! This might ‘accidentally’ end up in my collection…

    The red is such a pretty colour! For anyone looking for an alternative to the Inglot polish, GOSH do one called ‘Rainbow’ which is basically the same thing.

    I’m DEFINITELY Autumn ready! Love the deep, dark, dramatic shades.

    OOOhhhh!!! That’s so pretty! I went past Superdrug and managed to resist the temptation to go in, but now that I’ve seen this I’ll have to go back very soon!

    I have Inglot 204 – I bought it after you posted this: http://www.lipglossiping.com/2010/03/when-nails-go-bad-notd/

    Now I’ll have to go and buy 205 too – what a pity :)

    Ah Inglot is so expensive over here! Get a cheap ticket to Poland and hit up Krakow (4 items 50 zloty or about 12 quid!!!)
