This is a polish that's been on my wishlist, well forever. So last week when I had to order all boring stuff like thinner and refill of my top coat and so on I decided to treat myself to at least one nailpolish (I got two). Essie Van D'go
This is three coats with top coat. The formula is typical pastel-formula, thick and streaky but definitly not the worst kind so it was ok to work with. Van D'go is a really pale peach colored pastel creme, and it's pretty much whitebased which I like! I must say though, this doesn't look so great on Swedish-pale-we've-had-no-sunlight-for-three-months-skin. Inside it looks ok, but the minute you step outside and your hands get a bit red, it looks like flesh! Yuck! So this is a color that will definitly benefit from a little tan. And dear God am I in need of a tan!! I hate February!! It's possibly the worst month of the year, perhaps together with November, it's almost spring but still butt-cold and the Summer is still faaar faaar away. :(.
This mani looked a bit boring so I decided to put on some nailstickers that I won (!) at Lillasyster! Wohoo, this was the runner up price but I've never won anything before so I was so happy! And the stickers are awesome!!
I really like this combo! Looks sofisticated and a bit old school :). Sadly though, I put on a bit too much top coat and went to the gym and ended up with ten smudged nails. Boo! I was sad, cause I really would have wanted to wear this longer. Lesson learned here - don't rush!!
What do you think of Van D'go? Don't you just hate February??
