The Drop Dead Gorgeous Mini Nail Kit (£22) contains Arabesque: Pink glitter, as with a lot of glitter shades this feels a bit gritty, Chinatown: deep red, Candy Darling: Sheer palest ivory with a very slight pink tone and Saratoga: Ruby red with gold shimmer. Apart from Candy Darling, which goes on a bit streaky, the others go on well, you need 2 or 3 coats to build to the colour in the bottle and they wear well with minimal chipping. I bought this set for the two darker colours, as I tend to feel a need to wear red round this time of year. I think this would make a really nice gift for Christmas. My favourite is Saratoga!
Please excuse the sloppy application; I had done them in a hurry just to give you an idea of how the colour comes out (first one is Chinatown)
You will no doubt have seen numerous posts about NARS Mekong. I have finally got round to getting this much raved about espresso brown infused with gold micro glitter. In the pan is looks stunning, however once applied in turns into an almost charcoal shade on me. Don’t get me wrong it is a really nice shade but I really want the shade in the pan. The texture is one of the good NARS one, smooth, blends well, really pigmented and doesn’t fade.
