As George will tell you i’m more of a natural beauty than showcasing stocks of Rimmel coral red lipstick and MaxFactor eye shadow, much to my mums dismay! But I am an avid fan of nail varnish, and recently have been buying them just for the name.
I first noticed a couple of weeks ago, both in my Elle issue and walking through Boots, that the names of the nail colour attracted me more than the colour. For instance – Mary Quite Contrary and Round and Round the Garden are names christened by Rimmel, and I doth my hat to them (maybe borrow George’s hat, or just bow in my Coast dress). Mary is a dusky lavender, and Round and Round the Garden is a timid chalk green (the little sibling of the powerful and bold emerald).
I took them and immediately hunted for Mary’s nail colleagues. Ring a Ring O’ Roses, Ethereal, Little Bo Peep and Funtime Fuchsia. Little Bo Peep literally I just had to have – could not stop smiling! I was very tempted to have Pulsating and Pompous just because I laughed out loud!
I may sneakily wear Mary to work… no one will notice not like i’m wearing Pulsating, or Red Carpet……… Seriously, go to your nearest Boots and indulge!
