The instant attraction to Paul & Joe’s make up collection is the packaging – it’s gorgeous, with an elegant edge and a 50s vibe going on – making them products I wish I had a dressing table that I could leave them out on!
The nail polish is no acception to that – the bottle is almost a curved triangle, with a floral motif in the glass, with a long faux pearl handle with some gold detailing – just beautiful.
I find it odd when products don’t have names – but I’ve Googled about and found that in America this is also called The City Never Sleeps. I feel better now, and I think the name is rather apt!
018 is the first of Paul & Joe’s nail polishes I’ve tried. It’s a deep purple colour which looks almost black in some lights, with tiny flecks of pink and blue microglitter.
It was very easy to apply – the long handle helped that – and was a good consistency to paint two coats to get complete opacity then dry to a gloss-tastic finish. As it was drying I noticed that, rather than smelling like nail polish, it smelled of old fashioned lipsticks – it’s a good smell!
I love this polish – the shimmer isn’t too shimmery, but it’s just so interesting to look at up close!
