After being able to try some Topshop Beauty products for the first time, I decided on a whim to pick a few bits up in store and I was surprisingly drawn to nail varnishes…
If you have been a long term reader of Thumbelina Lillie, then you will realise that nails aren’t something I feature often. I am an absolute novice when it comes to painting my talons (or lack there of!) and paint my nails once a month, if that. Call myself a ‘beauty blogger’ ey? I’ve hunted high and low for neutral shades that suit my skin tone and I think I have found two that do just that. The first comes from their original line and that is Mannequin (£5), a warm nude with a hint of peach. It looks chic on the nails and dries super quickly and opaque in two coats. I can feel myself wearing this an awful lot as it seems to go with everything. The second is a bit more something and is Sixteen Candles (£6) from the Matte Metallic range. It is a stunning peachy pink and the finish is heart-eye-emoji worthy; It dries matte yet still has a metallic sheen when it hits the right light. The Topshop Nail Varnishes last a few days before chipping on me too, which is always warmly appreciated.
Face products like foundation etc. are something that I don’t tend to switch up often. I kind of find what I like and what works best for me and stick to that without straying to far due to a fear of oxidising products making me look ol’ tangerine-esque. So much so that I sit here still surprised that I actually picked up the BB Cream in Light (£10). With an SPF of 20 this claims to ‘hydrate, perfect and enhance’ – we’ll soon see, yes? I am still seeking something with more of a lightweight feel compared to my regular foundations, so if this fits that bill I’ll be a very happy lady indeed. Let me know if you’d like to see my thoughts on this when I do try it out.
So have you tried any of the nail varnishes from Topshop? If so, let me know your thoughts in the comments down below; I think that I’m certainly going to pick up a few more of the matte shades. If you have any products to recommend to me from Topshop, do reveal that too! Thanks for reading!
