Good morning :) It looks like we'll be having great weather this weekend, yay!
I bought this lovely little nail polish from the Nails inc. website for £5 thinking it it looked like a nice shade of pale pink and I'd not seen the matte effect before. On the Website it's called Curtain Road, when it arrived though it was called Curtain Street, so who knows!

OK, looking at my photo it looks just the same as the website, perhaps I had just imagined it to be the colour I was hoping...
It looks a lot pinker in real life than on the website so I was a little disappointed but actually I really like the shade now and think its the perfect match to a matte polish as it's a very powdery, girly sort of look.

The polish itself is a bit of a nightmare to apply, it's quite thin and runny and the 1st coat is a wonderful streaky one. The 2nd coat improves things but it's still not quite right, so it takes 3 coats of this bad boy to get it looking opaque and streak free. One thing working in its favour is that it is the fastest drying polish I've probably ever come across, I don't just mean touch dry either. You can press on this after a a minute or so and it leaves no mark, even after 3 coats it is still a quicker dryer which at least makes up for the fact that 4 coats could be needed.
Another thing to mention is that this chips SO easily and hasn't even lasted 24 hours on me. I really like the look but I think I'll just use this now and then as a novelty and definitely not everyday!
Right, I'm off now; my friend and I joined the gym yesterday and we're going to attempt another 50 lengths of the pool and then we're going to watch Beauty and the Beast 3D at the cinema! I am so excited about this, gutted it's only in 3D because I really don't like wearing those glasses which make no difference at all but it's in my top 3 favourite Disney films ever. I LOVE IT.
I'll be back tomorrow with a very looonnnnggggg post.
I'll finish this post with a quick feel good song for the weekend!
