Topshop have gone luxuriously goth with their latest collection, The Damned, full of matt, velvet rich dark shades. As soon as I saw Plush I just had to try it out – I do love a plum lip, especially at this time of year – and the fact that it was a velvet finish intrigued me.
You gotta love it when a magazine freebie is something good. nails inc seem to collaborate at least once a year with Glamour magazine, and it’s that special time of year once again. When you buy the December issue for £2 (with Kristen Stewart on the cover) you get a free nails inc nail polish, which would normally cost £11.
There are a choice of four shades – Victoria, Tate, Picadilly Circus or Basil Street…. or you could go for all four! I was fairly restrained and just got the one – I picked up Victoria which is a very deep cherry colour that is almost brown. It’s fairly similar to an OPI polish I have – William Tell Me About OPI. It reminds me of the colour of barbeque sauce!
As with all nails inc polishes, it goes on well and lasts a while before it starts to chip. I’d thoroughly recommend everyone to take advantage of this offer, especially if you’ve never tried nails inc before; there’s never been a better time to try!
Which polish did you get?
This was my staple Autumn/Winter 2009 nail polish – just goes so nicely with everything, lasts well, and with a topcoat is super shiny! As the warmer weather teases us I thought I’d better get in a few wears of this before it’s all about brights and pastels that you just can’t pull of in the same manner in the cold weather. Lincoln Park After Dark is a dark dark shade with hints of plum. William Tell Me About OPI which was released last year is very similar to this – but this wins hands down. I’d go as far as saying this is one of my favourite shades EVER!
