Let me just put this out there: this is one seriously hot shade of nail polish.
Last week for three days Spirit Spa – which I’m fairly certain is the only carrier of butter London polish in the city – they had 20% off all their beauty products. The very first thing I thought of was to pick up another ‘butter’ polish because they are somewhat pricey (at $18 a pop) and it always seems much more justifiable if you buy high-end products on sale (whether or not you’re really ‘saving’ money). Back in the Fall I picked up the color ‘Come to Bed Red’ – which, come to think of it, I think was on promo then too – and it’s a beautiful shade of bright cherry red. I figure if I’m going to pay more for a polish then it should be (generally) a classic I’ll get a lot of wear out of.
This time around, I passed on Victoriana, which came out with the Fall 2010 collection and captured my heart in online swatches, but left me wanting in person; barely glanced at British Racing Green (which has its fair share of die-hard fans – me, I’m not a green lover AT ALL); and skimmed over the other murky, ‘interesting’ shades that I’m just not feeling right now. With all the rain we’ve had here in Halifax – almost a month straight – I need crave bright, happy colors.
This is where Snog comes in. This is such a fantastic, flirty, gorgeous shade of bright coral-pink (more pink than coral), and just makes me feel awesome while wearing it. It’s got this summer-sexiness about it that I love. My bf agreed that it was one hot color (and you KNOW if the boyfriend notices, its a winner
These pictures just aren’t doing this shade justice. The top photo is the most accurate but really the shade is more vivid and a touch more pink in real life. This is day two of wear. The application was, of course, a dream. Two coats to full opacity – if you were in a huge rush you could probably do one and no one would be the wiser. Very glossy on it’s own, though I’m showing it with a top coat here (S.Vite just makes life so much easier!). Not much else to say. This is going to get some serious rotation for the rest of the Spring/Summer, especially as a pedi. Love!!
Monday is over! I hope everyone managed to make it through unscathed
*Edit: Here is another shot of ‘Snog’ that I think is more accurate – hope it showcases the fabulousness!
