I decided to purchase the shade ‘we’re in it together’ though I was initially a little disappointed as the colour of the polish didn’t match the image on the website; it looked a very pale pink on the site yet in the bottle it’s actually a true Barbie pink with miniature blue/purple glitter flecks. Nevertheless, at a price of only £1.99 I’m not too worried and it’s still a pretty colour, just not what I was expecting. The application was very easy thanks to the large, and slightly squared, brush although it did take a little while to completely dry. I was quite pleased with the formula of the product itself; I only needed two coats to achieve an opaque colour and it lasted reasonably long without chipping considering I didn’t use a base or top coat. It's a cute colour but definitely one I'll get more use of in the summer months.
I also wanted to share with you one of my favourite nail care tools- my crystal nail file. I honestly can’t remember how long I’ve been using mine but I received it as a Christmas present many years ago and I love it. I would never consider buying, or even using if I can help it, an emery board after using a crystal file as it works quicker and more effectively. It doesn’t feel at all harsh and can in fact help to reduce the amount of chipping, splitting, and peeling when used on a regular basis since it’s not rough on the nails. They’re easy to clean and, if taken care of, will last you for years. I definitely recommend one!
