Topshop is introducing this anniversary collection of nail polishes to celebrate the store’s first birthday. Inspired by the antique, metallic leather swatches seen in the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, these three colors really manage to combine what’s old with what is ever-so-new.
Heart of Gold—a glam but still subtle, rich and totally fab shade of gold. Went on glossy and slick with just the right amount of sparkle. I loved it; in an odd way, it’s a neutral, but with more with punch—it goes with everything. Staying power was pretty impressive too. I got almost a week’s worth of wear from it, which for me is a lot since I seem to be hard on my nails and I have seen my polish chip in a single day.
Starlight—A beautiful, silvery shade that evokes stars, diamonds and the gleam of moonlight on the water. I am crazy for these colors—the wow factor is high, but they don’t play as overdone or trashy. These are shimmering shades but with a certain elegance to them and they impart a classy, not overdone look.
Moonshine—Topshop calls this color rose gold, and it does indeed have a pinkish cast. But I thought it read more like copper.
These colors are in stores for a limited time only, so get them while the getting is good. These 3 shimmering nail shades retail for $10 each at Topshop stores.
