Two cheeky purchases I made in Topshop when I headed to London for #ldnlunch on Saturday! I had seen these two colours circulating the blogsphere and I felt I needed to have them in my life! Bloggers are such enablers!

Adrenaline (unfortunately sold out online atm)  is a beautiful sparkley polish with large and small flecks of  holographic glitter in it. I am a bit gutted they arent as opaque as Models Own glitter polishes (Hello Pink Fizz) . Looking at the bottle you would think it would come out quite pink but it doesnt which a little dissapointing nevertheless it is still a very pretty polish that provides that right amount of sparkle! Expect it used in a NOTD soon!

Hidden Treasure nail polish has been talked about a lot recently as its a VERY good dupe for the famous Chanel Peridot polish but at a fraction of the price! I dont often wear green on my nails, unless its a pastel shade so I completely admit this was a hyped up related purchase. You know when everyones talking about something and you feel you need it.. Yep thats me right there. No control! Hopefully I can pull this daring look off!

These Topshop polishes retail for £6.00 which is a little bit more than I would like to pay for something I can pick up on the highstreet - Usually my limit is £5.00! (cheapskate) But I feel they are worth it because of the beautiful shades, longtivity & fast drying time! (Always a winner in my books, I hate waiting for nails to dry! I always paint them and then find I need to do something Eat/go to the loo/phone someone. Nightmare!)

Do you have these polishes or reccomend any of the other shades from their range? (Link me to NOTD's if you've done them so I can see them!)

Much love

  5. I have to agree, I'm surprised at how expensive these Topshop  polishes are but at the same time they're got some nice unique effects and colours going on. It's not just the standard colours by another brand. Hidden Treasure looks so pretty, really want to get that! :) x

  6. hey! i just bought adrenaline today, i used to work at a nail bar so the colour appealed to me instantly! it's beautiful isn't it? as you said in your blog, the pink colour wasn't as opaque, but i found that if you apply 5 coats of it (long and tiring i know) the results are absolutely amazing and the colour really comes out! its worth it, just a heads up. it's what we used to do at the nail bar if a colour wasn't coming up properly :) i've been looking at my nails all day!xx
