With the colder weather finally here, after the short summer stint last week, I've gone back to the dark side of my nail polish collections. Although I love wearing bright shades in the winter to add some colour to my wardrobe, it doesn't beat wearing a co-ordinating outfit and nail polish combo. Today's NOTD post is with a shade that I've had sitting in my collection for a while now but just wasn't sure about the colour...
This is Violetta by No.7.
When I first purchased this it was purely on a whim because I had one of those No.7 vouchers that I didn't want to waste but as soon as I got it home, it went straight in to the drawer and was never seen until a few days ago. This shade has me baffled as in the bottle, it is definitely a purple-blue but in the photo it looks like a navy blue - I hate when that happens!
I don't have very many No.7 nail polishes, actually I only own 1 other polish from the brand, so I was quite impressed with the consistency of the polish and the fact that it went on super smooth. However, after a couple of hours of wear, there was already significant tip wear which really grinds my nerves. It is the biggest pain in backside when you apply a nail polish, admire the beauty of it and notice that it starts to wear a little at the tips after a few hours. Can you say "fail"?
Needless to say, I changed my nail polish almost immediately and don't think I'll be applying this shade any time soon... I'm sticking with my trusty Filthy Gorgeous 'Midnight' and Barry M 'Navy Blue' if I want this kind of shade again.
Has anyone else had this problem with No.7 or any other brand of polishes? Let me know who the offenders are so I can avoid them!
Until next time...
