Mango Lace

Revlon’s Mago Zing! lives up to its name – all the beautiful colours on a mango skin condensed into one hot, hot duo-chromey polish. Foolishly I thought that pastel orange would be more visible, but Mango Zing! subsumed it. If you caught it on just the right angle it stood out, but you’d have to be looking pretty closely to see it.

Oh so much zing!

(I also did a really bad job of sitting still while waiting for these to dry; I had to touch up my index several times, which the polish hates, and snagged my pinkie. When I chipped the polish the next day, I gave up and took it off completely.)

Summer sakura

It feels like it’s rained almost non-stop this month – tiring, if not altogether surprising for spring. I’m so ready to bust out summery colours on my nails.

So I did.

Sizzle is one of my all-time favourite polishes. I wish I’d bought more of it! In the bottle it looks peachy pink with a gold shimmer, but a single coat comes out a beautiful apricot on my nails. A trick of the light because of all the gold, but a trick I love.

Because I didn’t want bright white tips, I used Sunflash as a topcoat – it’s a very sheer ‘crystalline’ polish. Just enough to take the edge off.
