while re-organizing my stash recently I found some bottles of nail polish that have been sitting in the back of my Alex drawers for quite a while and that I've nearly forgotten about. I decided to give those "losties" another try and show them to you. One of those polishes is Essence - Top Speed (16) Paparazzi, a pretty black with holo glitter in it. Under indirect lighting in my lightbox this one looks like a black with simple silver glitter in it. When the light directly hits the nails, those glitter particles sparkle really nice! To see this, read on after the jump!
I really can't remember when I got this but it must have been several years ago. I think the Essence Top Speed nail polish line came out in 2007 (please correct me if I'm wrong!) so this might have been sitting in my drawer for four or five years by now. After all this time it had thickened a little so I added three drops of nail polish thinner and its texture was back to normal. I used two coats for this manicure.
I hope you enjoyed this "old lady"! What are the oldest polishes you own? Or can you even recall what your very first nail polish was? Let me know ;)
Thanks for watching,
