Nabi - Lavender

Hello again!

I decided to do a proper nail swatch of one of those smelly Nabi polishes I hauled a few weeks ago (click here to see).

I chose Lavender because it was the only polish of the three that didn't apply as a thin watery mess on the original tape swatch.  It was horribly 'plasticky' smelling on application as I expected but the coverage was pretty good and the polish dried fairly quickly. Thank goodness the smell faded fairly quickly too. The colour is a totally pretty musk pink which I would love to wear in spring or summer. 

Please forgive my horrible cuticles showing remnants of leftover dark polish - I cropped these pics within an inch of their lives but I couldn't hide them completely without the pictures looking totally silly...

Full sun:



If I'm feeling daring I'll try out the other Nabi polishes and see how they fare on my nails. 

Until my next post.
