Today's Mani Monday features a shimmery nail polish by Topshop.
It is called Valley and is number 201. I purchased this nail polish last year and I must say that I was quite surprised with the quality of it.
Topshop is not really known for their makeup collection but when they had a sale (which is more often than usual these days), and so I decided to purchase a few of their makeup products to see how they work. I will be reviewing each product separately, so hopefully they will be up soon.
Okay now onto the nail polish...
Valley is a shimmery apple green pastel shade. A very shimmery nail polish. It comes off as a bit powdery and streaky on its first coat. Once you apply the second coat it becomes opaque. I am not a fan of the texture of this nail polish because it meant that some nails needed more layers than others. The nail polish didn't apply evenly in some places so I had to keep re-applying. This can be a bit tedious especially if you are in a hurry. It also takes a longer time to dry than most nail polishes.
Although there are a few negative aspects to this nail polish, I can't deny the fact that it is a beautiful colour once applied.
This is the first pastel shade that I have purchased which contains micro glitter in it. I really like this finish, it's quite unique and despite the re-applying aspect, I think it is definitely a colour to consider for the upcoming spring season.
Topshop has quite a large range of nail polish and I am definitely going to try another shade. I think the next will be a one that does not contain any glitter though, just to see how the application will be.
This nail polish retails for R99.99 but I think this has changed. I definitely look forward to trying out more colours because they have quite a unique selection of colours.
That's it for today's Mani Monday! If you have tried any nail polishes by Topshop I would love to know which ones in the comment below. I hope you have a lovely week,
