‘Tabasco’ Nails

Hello, my name is Liloo and I am addicted to Tabasco Sauce. It's not my fault, it's the way I've been brought up, we are raised to like spicy food and there is always some king of spicy sauce to accompany a dish. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't eat a vindaloo or something like that but I enjoy spicy food. Tabasco sauce is the just perfect way to add a spice to anything and I even carry a bottle in my handbag, and use it at work to accompany a bland diet soup, to spice up a big mac and all sorts. When I am invited to eat at someone's place (I don't remember the last time this happened though) the bottle stays in my bag as I think it would be a bit rude for the host, like the host didn't prepare a food which is tasty enough. In my country, it wouldn't be rude to pile up the spicy sauce on the side of your plate, but at the same time, the host would be offended if you ask for salt.


Anyway, back to Tabasco: I absolutely love it and when I saw this 'spicy' red nail polish from Beautyuk, it instantly reminded of Tabasco Sauce and I just had to have it. There is one problem straight away with this polish: I don't know what it's called and I don't know if it comes in a separate bottle. I could have sworn it was released in their recent collection but I can't find it anywhere. I found 'Tabasco red' in the 'west end girl' £4.99 miniature set and it's without a doubt my favourite nail polish of the set. Trust me to like the polish which isn't sold separately and doesn't exist in a full size version.




Tabasco was lovely to apply and took 3 coats to reach the opacity you see on my pictures. This is one more coat that I would normally like to apply but the colour is just so divine, I am happy to forgive that. 'Tabasco Red' screams summer for me. If your outfit allows for it, it would accessorize your hands perfectly at a barbecue, when you are about to tuck in that big fat juicy burger on a limited edition sunny day. The set is definitely worth getting for this colour alone.

You have the nicest nails and cuticles Liloo! This is such a great colour. I've not tried any Beauty UK, but looks like I should, the quality looks pretty good.

Ha I love that you carry Tabasco with you! I carry sweeteners and usually some green tea bags! I probably look so rude, if anyone asks if I want a cup of tea I produce my own - "Stick that in some water, will you?" hahaha! Lovely pictures Liloo and I actually love this polish, it's just got that hint of spice to stop it being pure red. It's lovely. And thank you so much for your comment on my blog, you really are the sweetest button! :-) xxx

We get through a lot of Tabasco in our household! I'm a relatively new follower and I had no idea you were from Reunion. I've never come across anyone from there apart from my uncle :)
