After trying to cram a new polish into my nail storage a couple of weeks ago – and failing to find any space to fit (seriously, not one cm of space) – I decided that the time had come to have a bit of a clear-out. Despite the fact that I paint my nails quite a lot, I tend to stick to a small selection of much-loved colours, often forgetting some old favourites in the process and there were still a fair few polishes hidden away in my stash that hadn’t been touched for ruddy ages.
So, after clearing out a few of the dustier bottles, I’ve been making a real effort to branch out and be a bit bolder with my polish collection in the past few weeks and thought I’d give y’all an update on how it’s going. The most unexpected favourite by far is Butter London’s The Full Monty, a beautiful gleaming gold that applies like a dream and adds that perfect level of metallic gleam to my mitts. Delightful.
