NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Clinique: Black Honey

And the award for my favourite product name of 2013 definitely goes to Black Honey. Sounds deliciously Halloweeny. Last week I got my mits on this and moved the navy nails aside (don't worry, not forever) to give Cliniques Black Honey* a good run. As if the name wasn't yummy enough, the colour is just beautiful, a dark cherry colour, perfect for autumn. It's safe to say I'm well and truly smitten.

Now on to the basics - wear time? Standard. It lasts a good three to four days (more with Seche Vite) but is prone to chips on even my short little nails. The finish? Glossy, but even better with said topcoat. I prefer a super glossy finish over matte with this one, but each to their own. But their selling point (aside from the beautiful colour)? The formula is meant to be great if you're sensitive to nail polishes (mum, listen up if you're reading). Lot's of us aren't sensitive to the chemicals in most polishes, but if you are then you'll know about it! The downside? My mum can happily start raiding my polish collection now.

Black Honey won't be going anywhere any time soon. But I must admit, I do have my eye on a few more of their polishes - Really Rio, Party Red and Concrete Jungle are all at the top of the most wanted. Watch this space...

  1. Gorgeous dark and vampy shade, but with more depth than a completely black shade - lovely! Xx

  4. Such a pretty shade. I'm surprised you said it chipped after 3 days as I've heard the Clinque polishes last for ages. Might check it out though.

  5. Love the colour but I prefer Essie "diffusion line" brushes and it looks a hell lot like Essie Sole Mate. + clinique nail polishes are super expensive where I live and I'm not sensitive to any ingredient so I will pass this one :).
