NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Review: Gone Fishing by Topshop

This time last year Mint Green was having a serious moment and, as it always goes over here, the bandwagon was well and truly jumped. Then autumn came, and I packed my summer brights away and kissed goodbye Orly - Holla, my neon yellow AA polish and Topshops War Paint (it's worth noting that Models Own Hedonist was not - I like to rock that all year round)....

Gone Fishing by Topshop was included in the stash of hybernating summer brights, and in all honesty, I never thought that it would grace my nails again. But stranger things have definitely happened and whilst sporting an all black outfit and my Topshop Lipstick in Inhibition, I found myself looking a little... Moody? I'm a chirpy little bird when it comes down to it, so I felt there needed to be a tiny bit of balance to the slightly emo look I had going on.

The spring/summer nail polish box was raided and low and behold, Gone Fishing was plucked out. I applied a nude polish first to ensure there was no white nail showing through, and then applied two light coats (one normal coat will probably do - I just seem to like applying nail polish in stupidly thin layers). It added a perfect pop of colour to my gothic attire and even brightened up my neutral and grey jumper days at work - lasting for a full five days before one bit chipped and I ended up picking it all off - naughty.

If you want a mint green that is very pigmented and very green (not these pale or mint blue wishy-washy shades) this is for you. It's cheap as chips (sort of... it depends on the chip shop...) and is a great spring/summer shade - even though it's February. But let's just ignore that...

P.S My rings are in a set from New Look for around £5 if you were wondering!

  3. Topshop nail polishes are so great. This looks like it might be a good dupe for Essie's mint candy apple!

  9. This is the loveliest mint. While I own a serious plethora of mint nail polishes, they do tend to be a little on the blue side. This exactly what I think of when I picture mint.

  15. So pretty, I've been going for summery shades lately too! Must be that we're craving the sunshine... right now I'm wearing Butter London's "Trout Pout"... coincidentally the name goes quite well with your Topshop one!
