NOTD: NYE Glitter


Nails Inc. Polish for Instyle Magazine - Electric Teal and Topshop polish - 3D 



I had been wanting this polish from Topshop for a long, long time but for some reason I never got around to purchasing it as I would always go for another lipstick over one of their polishes. This beautiful glitter shade always caught my eye as the holographic particles always looked beautiful in the light. I wasn't sure whether or not to get it as I wasn't sure whether the colour payout would be the same as it was in the bottle as I knew that if it was anything less, I would have definitely been disappointed. 

I bought it when I was sale shopping around Oxford Street, the day before New Years Eve and I just had to try it out as soon as I'd got it! I decided to put it over the Nails Inc. polish as it was pretty much the same colour as my dress and I thought it would look nice with the glitter over the top (hopefully!). 

I can only say great things about the outcome. The Topshop polish's payout was exactly as it was in the bottle. I think I used about 3 coats over the top of 1 coat of the teal polish. It photographed quite well, but not quite as great as it was in person. All I can say is I couldn't quite stop looking at my nails... and so couldn't recommend the polish enough. 

I paired it with the OPI Nail Envy as a base coat and the Seche Vite Top Coat, and it looked great! 

The only negative thing I can say about the pairing is that it didn't last that long and that this happened... 


The whole nail polish fell straight off my nail! I wasn't wearing false nails, it was just the polish that came off. I can't say I've ever seen this before or this has ever happened to me! It happened to most of the nails eventually, so I guess the only good thing about this was that I didn't have to put up with the pain of taking off glitter polish as we all know how bad that is! 

Have you tried this polish from Topshop? What other polishes did you pair it with? What are your favourite Topshop polishes?

  5. This nail polish is so pretty, so bad that it's fall off, on the other hand it's great that you didn't need to remove the glitter. xo

  8. I have this polish, I had to get my hands on it as soon as I saw it in the New In section on Topshop! It's a close favourite, along with Adrenalin. I've teamed it with Models Own Nude Beige as well as a black polish.

  9. It's such a good look!
    The peeling nail polish has happened to me before, it's usually when I make the layers of polish too thick! But it's such a shame as its such I beautiful colour!
