NOTD: Topshop 'Green Room'

It feels like a while since I last blogged and as I try and hunt down my mojo, I thought I'd do a quick NOTD post to show you what I've been playing with lately. My previous NOTD post with Filthy Gorgeous 'Brill' actually impressed me so much because I had it on my nails for about 5-6 days and had NO chip and very minimal tip wear. However, wearing the same shade of nailpolish for more than 3 days is a big no-no for me so after 5, it was definitely time for a change.

I saw this number on one of my lovely PR buddies, Tash, at the NARS event so I knew that I had to have it.
This is 'Green Room' by Topshop.
It's definitely a green-turquoise but the image above makes it look more blue which is really annoying but whatever... It's not the first time my camera has completely altered the way a nailpolish looks.
Anyway, I was slighly unimpressed with the consistency of the nailpolish compared to other Topshop ones that I've used as it was literally like water in a bottle. Well, the first coat went on like watered down paint and the second coat wasn't any better but it was only after the third coat (or was it the fourth?) that I finally saw the colour coming together and looking like it should have done.
I painted on Wednesday night and have already seen tip wear so I'm guessing that after 5 days of wear, there will be chips galore.

Have any of you used this shade and had the same problem?

Until next time...

13 stiletto lovers had something to say::

  1. Shame the consistency was a bit pants - the colour is seriously eye-catching!

  2. Pants is definitely the word to describe it. I'm in love with the colour... The salesman at the car showroom even commented on how bright and "wow" it was. Lol. xx

  3. Cute colour! Shame about the application... boo, TopShop!

  4. Ive had air-kiss by filthy gorgeous on a few 3/4 days now and have no chips :) fab! Shame about the application of this one. The colour is gorgeous though xx

  5. Oh I love this colour...very pretty! I think Topshop always have great polishes so shame about the consistency of this one ):

  6. Hi Robyn,
    It really is such a let down that the formula sucks but it is still a gorgeous colour so I guess it balances it out? Lol.xx

  7. Hi Ashlie,
    I came across your blog post on that today while I was at work.. We were very happy to see that you're loving Air Kiss and your nails are gorgeous by the way!!xx

  8. Hi Heather,
    The other Topshop nailpolishes that I own are perfect and I've not had trouble with them before so maybe this shade is the only one with consistency issues.x

  9. Hi Zoe,
    Thanks for commenting :)
    All formula issues aside, it is a lovely colour so if you don't own it then you definitely should pick it up. You'll just have to work a little harder with it.x

  10. I love turquoise and that is a great colour on you, it's a shame about the consistency.
