11 Jun Review, Swatches: Topshop Nail Polish Color Collection of Shimmery Shades
Topshop is introducing this anniversary collection of nail polishes to celebrate the store’s first birthday. Inspired by the antique, metallic leather swatches seen in the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, these three colors really manage to combine what’s old with what is ever-so-new.
Heart of Gold—a glam but still subtle, rich and totally fab shade of gold. Went on glossy and slick with just the right amount of sparkle. I loved it; in an odd way, it’s a neutral, but with more with punch—it goes with everything. Staying power was pretty impressive too. I got almost a week’s worth of wear from it, which for me is a lot since I seem to be hard on my nails and I have seen my polish chip in a single day.
Starlight—A beautiful, silvery shade that evokes stars, diamonds and the gleam of moonlight on the water. I am crazy for these colors—the wow factor is high, but they don’t play as overdone or trashy. These are shimmering shades but with a certain elegance to them and they impart a classy, not overdone look.
Moonshine—Topshop calls this color rose gold, and it does indeed have a pinkish cast. But I thought it read more like copper.
These colors are in stores for a limited time only, so get them while the getting is good. These 3 shimmering nail shades retail for $10 each at Topshop stores.
