Shame on me. I can't believe I have not got round writing about my favourite to-go nail polish: London from Nails Inc, The London nail polish came about a few months ago, as a freebie part of the Diet Coke operation. Helen from SparklzandShine kindly donated it to me, as I was a slow taker and when I had got round to boots to get it, all the shades of London had gone. You bet when Nails Inc and Diet Coke joined forces and offered free polishes that I had to be there on the first day and grab my free polish. It was a no brainer and I wanted to get my hands on 'caramel' the shade which reminded me of London.
First impressions: I preferred when there was no diet coke sticker on the lid of the bottle, it makes the fact that you got it as a freebie even more obvious.
This second picture is probably the most accurate in terms of colour and 'mismatch' again my skintone. I won't beat around the bush and there is no other way to say it: I don't like it and I don't like this shade on me. I feel the nude colour does nothing for my skin tone and I find it bland bland and bland. I can already hear what a typical pragmatic bloke would think looking at this shade: what’s the point of having nail polish on if it’s going to look the same colour as your skin? He’s right!
Did anyone say corpse hands? How obvious, incidentally, is it that I am trying to hide as best as I can the nail of my index finger lol? :P
What a shame. I could cope with Miscellaneous (the rosy nudey mannequin shade of MissGuided (freebie from cosmopolitan magazine) and by retrospect I quite like it now, but I honestly don't see myself wearing Caramel on my nails. Not on its own anyway.
I've tried to pair it with my new love (this will have to be the subject of another post) Revlon Color Beam in Starlight, it's a little bit better but still not me. I shouldn't complain, caramel came as a freebie but I cannot help but feeling disappointed. Caramel hasn’t never tasted as bland as today…
