Lilac Love Part #1

I have developed a "thing" for lilac over the last couple of weeks. I think as spring has sprung I have been thinking about pastels and I was searching for a pastel polish to go with a floral top I have.  I had lilac in my head and was mooching around Boots when I realised I had Models Own "Lilac Dream" at home.  I put it on with a top coat of Seche Vite (yep, still got a "thing" for it too).

This is one of the reasons why I love blogging. I forgot I had blogged about it almost a year to today and couldn't remember what it was like on so gave it a whirl and the latest results are below...

I was SO pleased with this shade, with the coverage of two good coats and a topcoat.  I think it looks so different from how it did in my first blog post and to be honest if I'd have looked at it before applying this time I don't know if I'd have went for it. Don't you think it looks very different? I think it looks so much nicer this time.  I don't know if it's the topcoat that has given it that something a bit special.   I can tell you for sure what it has done though...  I am now on my 9th yes NINTH day of this polish - the photo was taken on day 7.   The longevity of this combination is outstanding.  Really, really impressive.  I now have one small chip on my right thumb nail and a tiny bit of wear from the tips.

Good isn't it?

Anyway just thought I'd share as honestly I'm so impressed (in case you hadn't noticed).

Also am I the only one of used their own blog to look back and compare?   It's like my own little diary of beauty stuffs.  I'll be back soon with more lilac love in the shape of a lust list of lilac coloured fashion things so keep a look out for that...
