Seventeen – Deconstructed Suede

If you have been into Boots recently, you may have noticed a HUGE amount of nail polish on sale for between £1 and £2 depending on the shade.  It seems to be mainly older 17 (now Seventeen) polishes, but there were a few things of interest.  Like this one.  This is part of a limited edition set that came out, along with some nail studs and a new mascara.  I also got some nail studs.

So this, for want of a better name, is Deconstructed Suede.

As you can see above, its a textured finish polish, it dries to imitate a suede finish.  In fact, in person the effect is super pretty.  Formula was pretty fast drying, in fact, if you don’t have enough polish on your brush then best to leave it to dry and then come back!  I used two coats for the pictures above.

Its a metallic gray with a hint of pewter and in some lights brown in it.  It does dry darker than in the bottle, which is quite common with the suede shades I have from other ranges.  I do like it.  I’ve not put on a top coat but I did base with G&G HK Girl but you can still see a few of my nail ridges so if you have prominent ridges you might want to use something like a ridge filler before hand.

Anyway, well worth the bargain price!  Did you pick anything up from the Boots Nail Sale??  Let me know in the comment.


New Things I Have Spotted #65 – House of Holland, Seventeen De:constructed, Miss Sporty, Bourjois, No7 and Christmas 213 Chanel

A whole host of new nail products have snuck their way onto shelves in the last week or so, lets just straight in.  First up, in Boots, I noticed that the House of Holland falsies are now out. There are several nail offers in Boots, so if you fancy these, it worth checking that out.20131118-085148.jpg

Also in Boots, a new range within a range on the Seventeen stands.  This is called De:Constructed and includes nails, nail studs and mascara.  Its all limited edition so if you fancy it, get it now.



Oh My Gems! on the Miss Sporty stand. Three new shades, purple, red and orange.  Price point is £1.99



Then, you will all recall my love of all things textured – Bourjois has jumped onto the textured trend.  A lovely, pure silver.  Love this stand where you can feel the textured.  Lovely.


Then, I noticed a whole load of new polish items in the No7 area.  Including this lovely looking flakie nail polish – which is part of their Christmas 2013 collection.





Finally, limited edition Christmas 2013 Chanel – *sigh* love this, Rouge Rubis is on the left hand side.


Let me know what catches your eye?  I have mine on that limited edition Chanel polish…..
