Seventeen In The Surf

I just *happened* on this shade in Boots two or three weeks ago! I love pastel, matte glitters so it was a real surprise to see this - and great to see one of the lower end high street brands dipping their toe into this kind of thing. Go Boots!

The polish is a mix of light blue, light green and pastel pink matte hexes in various sizes and some larger peach hexes too. Application was easy - this is one coat and no fishing for glitter required at all. I finished the mani off with a coat each of Gelous and Seche Vite.

My base for this mani is John Lewis nail polish in Brick - another surprise find on the same day. I'd no idea John Lewis even had a polish range, but there are a few rather nice colours (I bought this and one other, which I've not worn yet). Formula of Brick is good, I like the colour, and I like the whole ethos of John Lewis shops (quality products, fair prices, good working conditions for the employees (who are the owners of the company) and no external shareholders), so I'll be keeping my eyes open for other colours they bring out in the future.

I purchased Seventeen In The Surf at Boots and John Lewis Brick at John Lewis.  

This is the last of the pointy nails for a while - I enjoyed them this shape the last couple of times I had them like this but I'm not really feeling them this time round, so I've decided to go back to square. I'm off to get my nail file now!

  1. I have both the Seventeen shades and they are lovely. Hadn't thought to put it over red, but will definitely give that a go now.

  2. John Lewis nail polish ... who knew? (A new brand to stalk though, how exciting!)
