The hard to describe colour of Antique...

Have you ever had a polish that you just can't describe?

Well, this is a polish I have in my untrieds, it's called Antique by mien for Marks And Spencer.


This is a gorgeous colour. It's a metallic.... ummm.... tbh, I don't really know! lol! It's a kind of plummy, bronzey, goldy, silvery, pink.... :O
When I asked around the family, I got, 'a coppery pink!' and 'a mauvey brown' and even 'candied aubergine'.... bless. I have no idea how to describe this but whatever it is, it's lovely.
And just because it's sooooooooooo gorgeous, I decided to plaster Sally Hansen's Hidden Treasure over it. It's what I do. 

This actually turned out quite nice too. Above are some different angled shots of SH/HT. You can see the different colours shimmer through.

If anyone out there has Antique, how would you describe it?

Also, yes, I have changed the shape of my nails but I will explain why in another soon to come post :)

Hope you enjoyed,
