NOTD: 17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Sweet Kisses

So lately I've been trying to find nail polishes in my collection that I've either loved and then forgotten about or just plain forgotten about and this one falls in to the latter category. I remember buying this along with a few other 17 Lasting Fix nail polishes from Boots a few months ago when the two vintage looking palettes came out. Having never been a big pale pink enthusiast, I threw it in my basket with the hope that one day I would grow to love it and would find some sort of use for it. Well, that day has come and although I may not love it, I do really like it.

I'm more used to seeing these pale pink shades on the hands of Zara of Mouldy Fruit because I know how much she loves them. Sweet Kisses is a milky rose pink shade that definitely doesn't cross over in to the world of bubblegum pink which is why I think it appeals to me. It makes it so much more wearable because it more likely to match with everything rather than stand out and clash with what I'm wearing - and not in a good way.
Having never really played around with 17 Lasting Fix nail polishes I have, I was quite impressed that it only too two coats of lacquer to get an opaque finish and each coat dried really quickly too. Obviously, I still had to apply a coat of Seche Vite for good measure but the polish was borderline dry before that anyway. After one day of wear and a whole lot of box lifting at work, there are no chips and no tip wear yet which is great but we'll see how it holds up after 3 days of wear. I'll keep you posted!

You can buy 17 products and nail polishes from Boots stores and online HERE.

What other 17 products should I try? Since I had such a good experience with this nailpolish, I am tempted to try out other products from the brand so let me know what you recommend by dropping a comming in the box.

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your
