Loopy over Lilac

The most sumptuous shade of lilac and the golden sun shining in the middle. You dreamt it and Marks and Spencer nailed it. Forgive me for this giddy post as I am having a hard time containing my emotions. It's called 'Lilac' and it's part of the 25 shades Marks and Spencer has released in their quick dry collection. 'Lilac' reminded me straight away of OPI 'It's my year' but in a more beigy variation of purple.

I expected the polish to be sheer, I had already one of my 'millions' of purply nude nail polishes at the ready to apply as a coloured based to layer Lilac over. But Lilac doesn't need bases, lilac laughs in the face of coloured bases and gave me perfect opacity in 2 coats, coats which dried super fast, like it says on the tin.

No streaks, no bubbles, a smooth and very forgiving formula: just pure undiluted golden lilac wonder polish, not tested on bunny wabbits (scientific term) at the sweet price of £3.50

Glowstars said...

I got this last week and can't wait to try it. Just a shame that while M&S have some great colours in the collection that others are so mainstream.

jobetterdays said...

That is absolutely gorgeous! It is such a perfect summer shade. Might have to go on a trek to find an M&S that stocks it! xx

Emma said...

Yaaay I'm so glad you managed to find it! :D It looks amazing on you, and I am still jealous of your beautiful nails :( thank you sooo much for the mention too <3 I can always tell, there's about 100 more people than usual visit my site on any day that you mention me, lol! Thank you <3 so glad that you love it xxxxxxx

Viktoria said...

Jan said...

This is so lovely, you have super nails to show it off but it really smacks of sunshine and summer and lets face it at the moment we are getting precious little of either. Great post. Thankyou

I absolutely adore lilac and that colour looks gorgeous on you. I have brought M&S nail polishes in the past and they have been rubbish but this looks lovely so might have to pop down there and have a look :-)

Kemcaflipflops said...

Love it, want it- now can you just remind me tomorrow when I'm at the shops to get it? I swear that shiny things & shoes just throw themselves at me in shops and I forget what I went in for. Today I went to
WH Smith for Glamour mag but I ended up in Debenhams with a pair of Red Herring shoes- its one of life's great mysteries!

Oh Liloo I do love you! Your writing is fabulous & hilarious. The polish is pretty too, though I know it wouldn't suit my skintone. How did you bear to pour so much onto paper for that gorgeous pic?!?
