a-england Week: Day 6 - Guinevere

I was drawn by this colour, not quite knowing why I was attracted to such a light shade. Then Adina put my thoughts into words: "it's so chic!"... and I was sold!

This lilac has a hint of grey that makes it oh-so-interesting. It's not a little girl's lilac, it's a mature lavender, if that makes any sense. It's classy, glossy and incredibly feminine.

Cremes can often show ridges and imperfections and, despite being quite light, this polish is very forgiving. The formula on this is great. It's smooth and has great staying power.

One thing that normally annoys me about light colours is that you need loads of coats, but this nail varnish looks gorgeous with just two. Ideal for impatient or busy ladies!
