I saw this on someone I work with and it looked great, so I've been wearing it and it really is a lovely colour and easy to apply. smile

Ooh, always on the lookout for a decent nude blush. Is it opaque on or can you still see the whites of your nails through it?

I've been very pleased with the one on the front of Marie Claire last month

Definately opaque - good even after one coat.

The Marie Claire one is translucent, looks very natural but smart and polished. I haven't got an opaque one....

I wanted the MC one but they only had the aubergine one left. Nice on toes tho smile

ooh that looks nice, i've been looking for one for flippin years that isn't too transparent

looks a bit prosthetic
i had a great one from OPI last year - sludge colour everyone loved

I've already got one very similar to that so couldn't justify it! Have been looking at the No 7 ones today as I have got a £5 voucher, but can't decide!

What was the OPI one?

HallnotOates Wed 31-Aug-11 21:44:45

You don't know Jacques. Stocked in John Lewis.
That and orly hot shot are my mostt admired shades.

I love putty coloured nail varnish! I've got a lovely one called 'Beanie' or somesuch which is sort of pebble coloured. The marie Claire one is nice but v light; I prefer opaque. Revlon do a light one called something like Grey Suede which is another nice sort of 'dead fingers coloured' one.

I love Butter Londons yummy mummy ( horrible name though) you can see it

They have other lovely neutrals here

MissBeehiving Wed 31-Aug-11 21:59:13

OPI one looks interesting - the MO one is a simliar tone but lighter in colour IYKWIM?

Now, that Orly one... I have been tempted for a while but am slightly scarred by a reaction someone had to my mint green varnish. So, do people admire it in a "Gosh, how lovely" or a "fuck, that's burnt my eyeballs off" way?

I have this, which I adore

People want to buy it. They ask where. On my twitter feed it on my photos. Take a look. Ossom on toes
