Nails of the Week - Polished London Nail Enamel in 'Fushcia'
In the last GlossyBox I received a bottle of Polished London's nail enamel in the colour Fushcia. I had never tried this brand of polish before but had heard a lot of good things about it so was excited to try it myself.
The below photos don't really do this colour justice. It's a deep red wine/grape colour. For some reason the colour just won't come up as deep in the photos as it appears in real life and funnily enough the photos I took using my flash are a much closer representation of this shade than the photos without flash (even though it was the middle of the day when I took these, go figure?)
The one thing I noticed about this polish is that is seemed to be a bit watery to apply and I needed three coats to get good coverage. It also seems to take a very long time to dry between coats so I think I may have rushed the third coat a little which meant it bubbled quite a bit unfortunately (you can just see some of the bubbles in the above photos).
I'm not sure if these problems happen with all the polishes in this range, maybe I was just having a bad day.
Has anyone else used a Polished London nail enamel before? If so, what's your favourite shade?
