I caved! After not buying any new nail varnish in 2016, I ended up buying two bottles in America. I think a 10 month ban was pretty good going for an addict like me and, in my defence, the two new bottles are lovely (a metallic gold from Essie and a cool monochrome top coat from Formula X).
With autumn in the air, I fancied a truly seasonal manicure so reached for my deep, berry-red tones and picked Pavillion Road from Nails Inc. I applied two coats although it was slightly streaky in places so I probably could have done with a third coat.
I love this rich colour and the formula lasted almost an entire week with only one chip on the 6th day.
As a side note, I have been really impressed with all the Halloween-inspired nail art I’ve seen this year, especially the mini-series on Mikhila’s website.
