NOTD & La Mode: La Roux 5/30/105/30/2010
In my recent ELF haul I received 5 free nail polishes with my purchase. Obviously, I have to do a NOTD to showcase each of the free goodies.
I'll start by saying that I did not get to pick the colors so it was all a surprise to me. The first polish I'm trying is called "Innocent" by ELF. My guess is it's called Innocent because it's very light and dainty. Maybe it could have been called "Dainty Innocence" to drive the point home.
With and without flash so you can truly see how light this polish is, which isn't a big deal because I was going for something minimal. So I would suggest this color if that's the look you're intending.
My qualms: I think I would have wanted a shade just a tad bit darker. Also, the bottle is a bit weird (as another blogger mentioned on her review of ELF polishes), and it starts to chip after 3 days of wear. This is 2 coats plus a Sally Hansen top coat.
Overall, I would give "Innocent" by ELF 3.5 out of 5 stars.
...on to the next...
I know some of you have probably heard of La Roux--maybe for a while now. But I live in America and we're always late. We never get anything first and that goes for fashion/music/movies.
I was surprised when I came back from Europe and saw commercials for Iron Man 2 "Opening Friday" after I had seen it in Paris more than a week earlier.
Anyway, I've been really into this duo's song "Bulletproof" so I did some research about this UK band and decided that I enjoy Eleanor Jackson's style.
