NOTD- Nails inc. Porchester Square

A little while ago I bought these 3 Nails inc. polishes from their website and slowly I'm working through them, so here is my brief review of Porchester Square :)

L-R, Curtain Road, Porchester Square, Holland Park

I'm not normally a neutral nails sort of girl, I love pinks and pale natural colours but I'd never really latched on to this trend despite my housemate at uni being totally obsessed with neutral nails. There was something about this on the website that I just couldn't resist, I have a feeling it's because I saw the sparkly cap version and fell in love with it so I bought the standard just to check it out really. Popping to Boots to try it would have been an easier/cheaper option really...

One coat of the lovely Porchester Square, 
I am still a bright colours fan at heart but I think I will be headed to the muted side a little more often from now on...

Porchester Sqaure is a lovely mushroom shade, I'd like to think that is where its name has come from, as it sounds like Porcini mushroom but I think that is just me! I wasn't sure that it would suit my fair skin tone that can look quite pink/red with cool toned nail colours but I actually think it looks great. This colour is likely to suit a lot of people and I guess that is the exact reason they call it a 'HERO SHADE' on the cap, because it just is.

The only thing I would say with this polish is that mine is quite thick and not the quickest to dry, in fact I am just wearing the one coat and think the coverage is perfect just left at that. Two could end up a little gloopy and messy I think and make the drying time much longer.

It's taken me a while to get around to this one because I just wasn't sure how I felt about it and now that I have I think I'll be using it all the time, it could be love! 

What do you guys think? Are you big fan of neutrals and have you you tried Porchester Square?

Couldn't get this out of my head all day

Topshop wishlist

I've always had a lot of love for Topshop but I do go through phases where there isn't really anything that I fancy and then phases where I could spend enough to make Mohamed Al Fayed blush.
I'm going through the latter at the moment and the picture above shows the items at the top of my wishlist (I didn't realise I'd fallen for the stud trend so badly...or pink)

Is Topshop appealing to anyone else as much as it is to me right now?
