Last saturday I painted my nails using a cheapie navy polish from 17 (and thanks to those MNers who convinced me I was not too old to wear that shade ). Not only is the colour a fab sapphire but it has also lasted 6 days without a single chip or scratch.
I am VERY impressed and will be going back to explore more of the colours in the range now. Best polish I have ever used!
Verity - thank you for thinking of me. I had a lumpectomy 4 weeks ago, after mammogram & u/s scan were inconclusive. Transpires it was fibroadenoma - a benign tumour. Was definitely the worst 2 months of my life and despite finally getting good news I still had something of a "moment" when I got home with my results. TBH, I sat in my garden with a bottle of red wine at 11.30 in the morning, got horrendously pissed whilst sobbing my heart out. I hadn't cried for weeks - went on some kind of emotional shut down to get through it really - and it was sheer relief and exhaustion I think.
Much better to just think about nail polish and other shopping opportunities
