I have exciting news – while I didn’t count it as an official “resolution,” I made a commitment just before Christmas to stop biting my nails for good. I went for an embarrassing manicure on December 24 and vowed to let it be the start of a new era. Two weeks later…so far, so good.
While I definitely don’t have long and beautiful nails just yet, I’m far less embarrassed to show them to the world. What does this mean? I can proudly review nail polish now!
I had the chance to try a brand I’ve never heard of, Rococo Nail Apparel based out of the UK. According to the brand, they’re quite popular at London Fashion Week and promise high-quality product, on-trend shades made to last.
Right off the bat the packaging was impressive – the container came in a box! Pretty fancy for nail polish, I think (then again my knowledge in this area is limited). The shade was Night Scene Molton Lava, a shimmery brown from their Autumn 2014 collection.
I found the polish really easy to apply and highly pigmented. In two coats, I was happy with the results. The colour itself was one I normally wouldn’t select, but there’s no doubt the quality was there. I also found it dried really quickly and had a high-shine finish.
You can find this product at Murale.ca and stores for $20 a bottle.
