Instead of chocolate (totally off it at the moment!), my lovely OH offered to buy me some polish and I decided to push my luck and see if he would buy me some of my most favourite brand. I've been a polish lover since I was little, but my obsession with polish as an adult started with my first Jessica. I bought Ruffled Bottoms (still one of my top five) about 5 years ago and from there it escalated rather quickly. Approximately 75 Jessicas later (:/), and with so many lower priced brand options available for a quick polish fix, I couldn't justify them to myself the way I always had, so now they are a treat (or a necessity if I need to replace empties).
I chose four and here they are:
I'm starting with Color Me Calla Lily. I'm not really into pinks, but this one had always been on my hit list as my daughter's middle name is Calla, so it was meant to be :) It is a creamy pink with a lavender grey undercurrent running through it that mutes the pink slightly. It also fits the Radiant Orchid brief for this year so I'm surprisingly "on trend" for once! This was two coats - I adore the formula and needed virtually no clean up. This is without top coat too.
Next up is Banana Peel. I HAD to have this colour, despite the fact that I knew it was going to make my skin look horrific. It really is the colour of a peeled banana (I had saved one for a clever prop, but someone in my household was evidently peckish and it vanished mysteriously). The photos show three coats, again without top coat.
