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
