Well hello there!  Hope you’ve all been having a great week so far.  This is a scheduled post as I am currently away on holiday with my family.  We are off hitting the US of A and when I get back I hope to have some lovely nail pretties for you to drool over!

But enough of that, today I want to share with you another lovely Nella Milano shade I have been asked to review.  This one is called Lady Lavender and, as the name suggests, is a lavender shade.  Its not too pale, but its not a dark shade either; lets check out the pics!

What you see above is three thin coats over a base of Essence Anti Nail Split Base (purchased by me) topped with a layer of Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat (purchased by me).  The colour was quite hard to capture, as it is more purple leaning than the pictures would have you believe.  However, you get quite a good idea of the colour on the Nella Milano page here.

Formula was good, a bit of the thin side, hence three coats but the colour builds up really well and I don’t like to overload by brush.  Drying time was also good.  Wear time was also good, these polishes seem to play well with my chosen top coat.  The brush is thin yet flexible and you can get coverage for one nail with one dip of the brush.  I was surprised how much I loved this shade once I got it on my nails.  Maybe its something to do with the improved weather we had whilst I was swatching.

In their own words ‘Made in France, Nella Milano nail lacquers are colour rich and long-lasting, making it very easy to keep your nails naturally chic at all times.  Nella Milano stands for effortlessly stylish, elegant and fashionable.  There is a Nella for any mood and personality and Nella Milano colours will perfect and complement any individual style.’

On the website you can search by collection, there are eight sets and one set of top and base coat www.nellamilano.com.  You can also visit the brand on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook to keep up to date with releases and current shades.  The price point is £8.95.  But this week, Lady Lavender should be on offer for £4.95, so if you like the look of this, get moving!

Let me know what you think in the comments.  What are your favourite lavender shades?
