Nail of the Day: Revenge is Pretty! :)

It's been quite a while since I did a really simple mani- with just one polish and no stamping/taping/dotting etc. But I was feeling pretty lazy today, and I spotted the perfect 'lazy mani' colour in my collection - 17s Revenge. Revenge is a beautiful brown shade from last years Autumn collection; it has a hint of auberginey tones, and a lovely pink duochrome effect over the top- I've not worn it nearly as much as it deserves, it's awesome!

I used my lovely Sally Hansen Double Duty and Insta-Dri combination, along with 2 coats of Revenge. I don't know if it's deteriorated over time, or if it's just not a brilliant formula but the polish was a little gloopy and hard to apply, although luckily it smoothed itself over and you can't tell- I just hope it doesn't get any worse!









I love these kinds of polishes- so easy but still really interesting, and it tends to look different in every light :) I love a good duo chrome! I'm still on the fence about the Models Own Beetlejuice collection (all duochromes) I don't love them as much as I thought I would so I've still not purchased any, but this polish- and remembering how much I adore duo chrome polishes- has made me rethink... so much for the nail polish spending ban!
