I'm hankering after nars ecume.

Anyone got a cheaper alternative?o

Is that like the one Kate Moss is wearing in current vogue?

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 18-May-13 09:05:19

Just googled - that would need very careful application wouldn't it?

Essie st barts is lovely but is blue Cream lovely with atan

Nehru Sat 18-May-13 09:21:48

Lol at vogue.

I have no idea!!!

Ohhh, I remember getting this the last time round after seeing it on Drew Barrymore. 1993 it was and it was called Hard Candy.

Not for me. It makes my toenails look as though they are diseased!

On a young super cool model, maybe, but alas..............

noddyholder Sat 18-May-13 10:06:28

I think probably looks ok in a photo like the Moss cover but irl could look a bit dirty

Nehru Sat 18-May-13 10:57:47

Oh noes! Wah. Me? Dirty?!!

TheConstantLurker Sat 18-May-13 11:08:43

I think it would look very Essex. And that's in a bad way.

Avon does all the nail varnish colours you can think off, even white!
I like painting pictures on my nails, having used white on it's own as I think it would look a bit odd but from a woman that paints pics on my nails Im not one to talkgrin

LadyintheRadiator Sat 18-May-13 11:11:20

Oh god it's horrible.

pumpkinsweetie Sat 18-May-13 11:11:39

*haven't not having

noddyholder Sat 18-May-13 11:21:38

here does look pretty bit think its the pic

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 18-May-13 13:06:41

Just checked and she is wearing it - looks slightly more pink in the photos

noddyholder Sat 18-May-13 13:08:48

I think it looks creamy yellow not so tippexy! She looks great though love that bardot look

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 18-May-13 13:12:32

She does look amazing - I just studied the photos whilst in the Bath and it definitely does not look as white as the photos I googled

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 18-May-13 13:13:29

Not sure why I capitalised Bath - maybe because I'm contemplating popping in and trying it in space nk

noddyholder Sat 18-May-13 13:13:56

No if you google it is very white and chalky looking I don't like that at all. Maybe should go to the shop and try just to check. I am not big nail varnish person though rarely wear I like bare buffed pinky nails really.

It's not a great look.

PoppyWearer Sat 18-May-13 14:49:36

I bought some white Jessica stuff last year as a background to a transfer and it wasn't a chalky finish but it was a swine to apply, took several coats to give an even cover.
