For the longest time I have thought this polish was called Skull & CROSSbones - rather than GLOSSbones.
It was only when someone corrected me yesterday on Twitter that I realised my mistake.
"Oh yeah - so it is" I thought when I looked at the bottom of the bottle.
What a divvy!
Anyway, name confusion aside, I declare this my new favourite polish.
(Excuse crappy nail job and the fact that the photo does not do this polish justice)
I hauled this a while ago from the same trusty eBay shop - Link! - I always use and it's taken me sometime to give it a go. Every time I looked at it I just didn't feel excitement and I was a bit worried that it was going to come out like Essie's Great Expectations - which is very similar and a bit of a miserable light grey shade on my skin.
I was very very wrong!
This is AMAZING! Yes - that's right I am going to over-exaggerate my love for this to the max so prepare yourself for lots and lots of adjectives.
It's a simple, creamy milky grey but it's just so......modern. That's the best way to describe it. I love light pinks on nails - but that's not original. I also like darker greys, but they can often be foreboding.
Skull & Glossbones is the more modern alternative - neutral enough to wear anywhere but interesting enough to catch someone's eye.
This shall be my friend for the next few weeks I think.
Whilst we are talking about polish...
This is a bit of tangent but I wondered if there was anyone else out there in the same boat....So I removed my toe nail polish yesterday and I suddenly realised that my poor toenails have probably been covered in polish - with no more than a week off - for.....well, to be honest, bloomin' years!
That realisation made me a little sick - and whilst natural toenails also cause me to produce a little vomit, I am going to let them breathe for a while. After all this time, they definitely deserve it!
God, even thinking about toenails is making me cringe...but anyone else out there treated them in the same way?
I am off to drink some Chilean red wine peeps - have a great Saturday!
