For some time now, I have been longing to try out some yellow nail polish so when I saw some eye-catching City Colors polishes selling for N150 at Central Supermarket, Uyo (Oron Road), I did not hesitate to snap up one of the custardy shades on sale.
I couldn’t (I still can’t) understand why this brand does not subtitle its products but it didn’t stop me from falling for the cubic shape of the bottle and its solid black cap, reminiscent of the Chanel Le Vernis range.
A steal over a splurge any day.
Oops! I forgot I was supposed to buy some real custard.
More disheartening, when I applied it, the yellow was watery and too sheer for my liking; after two coats I could still see my nails!
I did some improvising and was pleased to discover that a coat of glitter – Revlon Soft Sands – saved my nails from being too ‘Fluorescent Adolescent’.
Now if only I could sell this combination, I would call it Midas Touch.
Until then, try it out for yourself.
