Friday treat: Topshop nail polishes

This is the first in what could become a series. All about, you guessed it- nice little Friday treats. When I say *could* become, what I mean is that I’d like it too, but it might not be every Friday. My criteria for something being classed as a Friday treat are the following:

1. It can’t be a big, anticipated purchase – it has to be small and impulsive (not that I’m encouraging impulsive spending or anything).
2. It has to be bought on a Friday.

So pretty simple really. I should probably add that it doesn’t always have to be a beauty treat, but it most likely will be.

This weeks Friday treat are these two little beauties from Topshop’s make up range. My first NOTD of 2012 has been Topshop Parma Violet (I love a purple/lilac nail polish) it’s lasted so well that it just made me want more from the Topshop range.

I adore the packaging and the colour range is always as on trend as is possible. I loved their recent metallic collection too, so decided to add a couple to my own.

I planned to just get one as my Friday treat, but I was in a hurry and can’t make decisions so ended up with two. Oops.

They are:

Moonshine: A warm metallic that’s partly a pinky rose-gold, partly a pale bronze with a silvery shimmer running through it.

Mercury Miasma: A metallic blue with silvery shimmer. The shimmer is a bit chunky than in moonshine, so more like a fine glitter than a shimmer really. I don’t have anything like this in my collection already, so excited to try it out.

What do you think of Topshop nail colours? Any recommendations??

Bought by me.

    I love Topshop polishes, especially the metallics! I reviewed Hyperreal last week and it’s gorgeous 🙂

    I adore Topshop’s extensive range of nail polishes! I would buy them all if I didn’t already own nearly every colour in the world. I’m too scared to approach the metallics though… sometimes I find metallic polish a bit garish or tacky looking. These look lovely though, especially the rosey-goldy one. x

    Absolutely LOVE topshop nail polish – especially the metallics. Thoroughly recommend ‘Glimmer’ and ‘Hyperreal’ – posted about them recently as I think they are really good NYE/Party colours!
