♫ Joe Hisaishi - One Summer Day
You all probably know by now that I'm a sucker for anything pink. Today I have a lovely pink nail polish to share with you. :) As you might have seen from the title above, it's The Body Shop's limited edition nail colour in the shade 02 Twinkling Pink.
This nail polish is a part of The Body Shop Christmas 2010 collection, which includes 2 glittery nail polishes - Starry Night (black) and Twinkling Pink (pink). I first saw them around Christmas in 2010, and totally loved the colour when I tested it out at the store. However, I was extremely reluctant to fork out RM22 for a 5ml bottle, considering the fact it had so little product and there weren't any other TBS nail polishes to compare with. Luck was with me a few weeks later though, because I got a RM20 rebate from a gift purchase, so I quickly went back to The Body Shop and snapped up this jewel for only RM2! *grins*
I am really glad I picked up this colour, because it's absolutely beautiful. ♥ See the photos below to find out why. :P
In the photos above, I only applied 1 coat of Twinkling Pink (along with a top coat). 2 coats would make it completely opaque, but I as you can see from the first photo, it covers well enough with just a little bit of the nail line visible. I'm afraid the colour in the photos is a bit off though; it's actually closer to the first 2 photos, maybe a bit darker.
Why I love this particular nail polish? The colour is gorgeous, and unlike the other nail polishes I own. It's a soft pretty pink with fine shimmery glass flecks, which in some lights make it look sort of metallic. Application is a breeze too, as the formula is smooth and even, plus - if you don't mind a bit of VNL - it covers really nicely in 1 coat. (Also helps me save the nail polish; it is only 5ml and limited edition, after all.) A lot of people like pink but shy away from Barbie-esque pink shades, so I think this kind of pink would be perfect. It's girly sweet and subtly edgy at the same time.
Would you rock this nail colour? :)
01 Starry Night, which is black with uneven silver glass fleck glitter, but that will be a post for another day.
