You Named It What?!

Hi guys :)

Don't you just hate it when a company brings out a gorgeous colour and gives it THE most pathetic name?

Well, how about this...
This gorgeous little polish has the uninspired name of REDDISH PURPLE... o_O
Seriously... And what a beauty!
 



The above pics where taken with flash.

It is a super dark (magenta?) base, almost black, with a cerise glitter. It's awful with 1 coat, I mean, I actually grimaced when I saw it but drooled once I had a second, thicker coat on. The one coat kinda looked like a streaky sheer grey with pink glitter. I finished this off with black french tips and clear top coat.


The above picture was taken in artificial light (kitchen) and the picture below was taken in the bathroom with flash. 


This polish deserves a better name but the company who make this also have polishes by the names of Dark Green and Dark Blue... Believe me, both are stunning.

OOOOH! As you know, if you read my ramblings, I had to file my nails down due to having too much fun and not looking after my nails. Ah well, it was soooo worth it! Anyhoo, I decided to use one as an experiment.

This, Ladies and Gentlemen, is the STILETTO NAIL CHALLENGE!!
I filed this thumb into a small baby stiletto... ish shape. I plan to grow this nail as much as I can as a stiletto to see just how practical it is. Will I stab myself in the eye? Will I stab someone else's eye? Are my children's lunches safe with this (soon to be) stanley knife thumb or will I send them to school with holes in their sandwiches? We'll soon find out I guess :)

I am going to post weekly pics and reviews of the Eye Putteroutter.... Stayed tuned :)

    1. I know, it is a shame. I was conscious about the nail for the first few days, now I forget about it until I am going to paint or remove polish.

  5. So pretty! Name shmame, you should give it a nickname! I'm gonna enjoy watching for posts about your baby stiletto nail! I feel like it wouldn't be practical.
