Mannequin Hands

A few weeks ago I was sent this polish from E.L.F. in Innocent and didn't really think a lot of it. It's a difficult colour to describe (a creamy greyish pink neutral?) and it didn't really stand out. Nevertheless, as I was well overdue to get my gel nail infills I decided to give it a go in an attempt to mask the re-growth.
I can't believe I was so dismissive! The colour is gorgeous and is a perfect nude for my skintone - not too beige/ yellow and not too dark. It applied smoothly and topped with my trusty Seche Vite dried quickly to a lovely even finish. You can see just how good the payoff is after two coats as the line between my natural nail and the gel is well hidden. I can't comment on the chipping as with gel nails most polishes last much longer, but there was minimal wear at the tips, as you can see in this photo, which was taken after 6 days of wear. All this for £1.50, I am mighty impressed and will be sure to order some more... well it would be a crime not to ;). Currently I have my eye on:
Mod Mauve

Purple Pleaser
 Mango Madness

You can find E.L.F's nail varnish range here. Have you tried E.L.F. nail polish before? Are there any that take your fancy? xxx


  1. That colour looks like a great nude. They are such a bargain, loving the look of Mango Madness, yum!

  2. I've only ever bought 1 nail polish from E.L.F. and it was completely different from the swatch :( so many people have recommended them though so I might give them another go. I'm not sure about the plastic drips they put on some's a bit weird, but kind of cute/quirky! xxx

  3. Hi! I just recently joined your blog - love it! I only have one nail polish from ELF - its a classic red. I really like it. The Mod Mauve is really pretty -hmm might need to pick that up. :)

  4. never tried elf anything.... wish I could... thanks for your thoughts though.... i like the colour

  5. I have ordered a bunch and they're on there way to be delivered here now. I'm so excited!

  6. I haven't tried their nail polish yet but I am liking the colors you've shown!

  7. Haven't tried their nail polish but it really seems like a nice product. I'm always pleasantly surprised by their products.


  8. Innocent looks amazing!!
    I've bought Mango Madness because I thought the colour was so gorgeous, and it is, but it's also really streaky, I need 3+ coats to get a decent coverage...


  9. I have tried quite a lot of their polishes, I really like purple pleaser nice for autumn.

  10. Hey !!!
    i have all of those that you just mentioned!
    the mango madness is really pretty through glass, but I thought the nail polish was too creamy and thick... but it was a gorgeous color for my toes :)
