Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay 7 Day Gel Colour in Mint for Life  //  CK Nail Polish in Silvivor
I just want to say how much I am getting a kick out of nail polish names at the moment.  I didn’t pay much attention to them before I started blogging, but since I have I find them really cute and clever.
I also love that mint is really in at the moment, and so highly available.  As you can see from my duvet cover, which is the backdrop to these pics I really love the colour – though my linens are more of a duck egg.  I think only us girls would understand the subtle difference.
The wear from the Maybelline polish was not all I would have liked, and chipped after only a day.  That being said I did use the nail to pick a sticker off of something, which is a big nail polish no no.  I’m also trying out all new nail polish products with no top coat just to gauge how long they last, and how much of a difference a top coat makes.
The CK nail varnish applied smoothly and lasted really well.  Like alot of others I have been wondering why CK cosmetics are so cheap right now when Calvin Klein is such a high end name.  After asking around on the forums and twitter, and googling the question, it would seem than the CK cosmetics have been discontinued.  It’s kind of a good news bad news situation, as I love the CK items I have, but would have never been able to stretch to them if they hadn’t been highly discounted.  So if you’re still seeing CK products in Poundland and other similar outlets, they really are while stocks last.
Are there any looks, colours or effects you guys would like to see?  I’m getting better with the basics after not doing my own nails for some time (with the help of a well used corrector pen).  I have a few things up my sleeve, so stay tuned for more nails of the day posts.
