topshop nails in 'suffuse' - £6 (buy online here)
I've recently purchased my first ever buy from Topshop's makeup section, a serious shocker as I've been wanting to since watching Fleur's video on their makeup selection back in 2010. That's actually crazy when I think about it, how did I resist it that long?! I'll never know. Anyway, Topshop currently have a fab deal on at the moment, when you can get 2 for £8. Considering this applies for their whole range of nail polishes, which either cost five or six pounds, the saving is quite good and very motivational for first-time buyers like myself.
The website states it to be 'rose' in colour, which I agree with partly. I'd say it is a rose/champagne/pale bronze which is really vague, but other than that I don't think I could say it any other way. It's definitely less pink than I expected: I thought it would be more similar to Twilight Tease. Saying that, I think it's a beautiful colour, really unique and would suit a massive range of skin tones. I would say it's quite work-appropriate as well, for anyone who doesn't mind a subtle shimmer.
I won't go into huge detail as I'm sure many of you have tried out Topshop nail polishes before, but I was pleasantly surprised by the formulation. It was completely opaque in two coats and has resisted chips in the two days I've worn it. The brush is perfect in my opinion - American Apparel nail polishes and Rimmel Pro have always been my joint favourites but the brush of this beauty is a close second. It helps the polish apply in a non-streaky manner, which is good as I find shimmery polishes can be prone to this problem. Price-wise I think it's justifiable when bought in the 2 for £8 deal, but otherwise no (I have a cut-off limit at £4/5, that way I can afford my growing collection).
