New Nail Colours from Topshop

When it comes to fashion, I don’t have a healthy relationship with Topshop. Most of it falls into hipster territory, which terrifies me and truth be told, a lot of it is ridiculously overpriced. Occasionally there will be a piece I will purchase but generally, I don’t get Topshop fashion.

Their make-up range, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. The cute packaging (I love polka dots), the endless range of polishes and lip products – it outperforms against the average high-street cosmetics brand for which I applaud Topshop for because quite frankly, others have been too quick off the mark to slap their name on some make-up only for it to be dreadfully mediocre.

I’m pleased to see Topshop has played it hard and played it cool and even though I am considerably late to the party, I’m liking what I’ve tried from Topshop’s make-up.

I know that was a rambling introduction but it had to be confessed. Now. Let’s move on swiftly to two new colours I was kindly sent to try.

First up is Teal My Thunder*, which is a bloody marvellous name. (Yes, I know my cuticles are parched – let’s just gloss over that and concentrate on the product, shall we?)


Secondly, but not least, is the deliciously blackcurrant pastel Prestige* (“Worldwide!”). I’m sorry, I added the extra word in quotation marks as a nod at Stepbrothers. (If you have not seen the movie, we can’t be friends.)


These creme polishes are opaque in one coat though I went for double for good measure. The formula is wonderfully rich in colour and bone dry in minutes. It’s also a breeze to apply, when normally I am quite cack-handed with nail polish jobs.

I heard rumours that Topshop polishes were the bomb and now my first hand experience with them confirms it. I can’t wait to try more! Do you have any favourite shades from Topshop nails? Please post them in the comments box below and I will probably add them to my shopping list.

Topshop nail polishes cost £6 each and are available in stores nationwide and online.

    Britny, Charlotte Tilbury has a quad that may be worth checking out. Are you looking for matte based shadows?

    When I was at the Charlotte Tilbury counter in Birmingham’s Selfridges, I tried a different quad – not tried this one. Selfridges stock her make-up and I am in love with the lipsticks. I think it’s better value than Tom Ford although the quads are smaller in comparison. I have tried a TF quad and CT is much better.

    Ooh I have that one! Not used it yet… Sorry! I have never had a problem with Nars but you do need to touch and feel the product before buying. In your case this is virtually impossible.
