When I do a nail look, I usually keep the polish on for a day or so. Following my Nail of the Day post a few days ago, I can say, for the first time in a while, that I’ve kept a nail polish on for a good 5 days! The polish in question is the TopShop Nail Polish in Hypnotic.
It is a gorgeous duo-chrome shade – silver with hints of pink and some green too – and I adore it.
When I first painted my nails, it seemed a little bit lumpy and bumpy, but as it settled down it seemed to look smoother. Me being the extremely clumsy person I am, it smudged a bit at first which wasn’t great.
But when it was fully dry, this nail polish really proved itself. It’s been on my nails for around 5 days and has barely chipped, even without a top coat! I am thoroughly impressed, and when I use it again I’m going to be more careful during and after the application – it might last even longer!
One thing I have to say is that the duo-chrome effect is only really visible in daylight, which is slightly disappointing but when it does shine through, it looks beautiful!
The nail polishes from TopShop range from £6-£6.50, this one being £6.50, but I really do think they’re worth it. They should really make a point about them being so chip-resistant on the packaging – they’re great!
Have you tried any of the TopShop nail polishes? What do you think of them?
