Well, a little update an apology first *hides head in shame*....
Apologies for the lack in blogging (and for the horrific joke...), just gone into my third year of uni, crickey seriously scary stuff, what am I going to do with my life?! Which therefore meant a lack of internet in new house, bums. So, as I visit my boyfriend and he runs off to lectures, I'm stealing his internet, cunning! :)
Whilst I was browsing twitter I came across a tweet from a fellow blogger, Aimee (whose blog i adore) about Boots' range '17' and their new magnetized nail polish, after a little bit of research I realised we may soon have a new nail trend on our hands (perfect opportunity for another dreadful joke, worry not, i'll spare you all)... Bye bye Mr.Crackle and co!
The Boots website claims:
'The polish contains very fine metal particles, when you have applied the polish and its still wet, hover the magnet (which is part of the cap) over your nail and watch the effect appear!
How to apply:
1. Apply 17 Magnetized Nail Polish and whilst still wet, hover the magnet (located on the cap) over your nail. Apply to one nail at a time.
2. Hold the magnet over the nail for approx 10 seconds and see the effect appear before your eyes!
3. Allow the nail polish to dry hard & apply a clear top coat for prolonged wear.'
The effects are lovely, search 'magnetic nail polish' on google images for a peek! I do remember seeing a version by Nails Inc a few months back now i think about it, yet this version is a mere snip of the Nails Inc price tag at £5.99 a bottle. I am ever more impressed by the 17 range of make-up, they always seem to step up every season and are super affordable! I hear in the great blogger world a BB cream is their next little no. excited stuff indeed!
The magnetic nail polish is available in these shades:
...all of which are pretty dark *runs and hides*, poor poor beloved pastel shades! I'm guessing this is because of the effect not lending itself to lighter shades. I have to say the grey or the blue are probably my favourite, yet i'm still not overly enthused, having said this i'm 90% certain one will 'fall' in my basket on my next Boots trip...*sighhhh*
Much Love ♥
