No 7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour – Milan
I have a love/hate relationship with this polish. I love the colour, the finish and the glorious glitter, I hate the fact that it is impossible to photograph accurately. Believe me, it is much prettier, and paler in real life! It is an intriguing iridescent pink with silver shimmer running through it – perfect for getting your fingers festive as the Christmas season approaches.
I bought this varnish in a moment of mild panic as I realised I had an expiring No 7 Boots voucher and no real need for any of their products. I wouldn’t normally peruse the No 7 (or Ruby & Millie) counters if it wasn’t for those pesky, enabling vouchers, so I thought I would have a quick look and was drawn in by this particularly sparkly polish.
I wish I could say these are my real nails but I owe all their loveliness to Elegant Touch fake nails. They are the french manicure ones I wore to the Cosmo Blog Awards. I was impressed they were still intact by the weekend so, before they all flicked off, I seized the chance to give them a speedy swatch of this new polish. I only needed two coats to achieve a deep opaque finish and the glitter is really fine, so doesn’t leave you with a gritty finish to your nails, which is always a bonus!
