Now, I absolutely hate this packaging. In my eyes, for a £9 bottle, it comes across as cheap, tacky and very 1998 sleepover-ish. Even the writing on the front of the bottle has started rubbing off already, which in my book is naaat good. However, my mind changes on the formula. This polish is so smooth and easy to apply..possibly one of the easiest I've come across! In the photos, I am genuinely wearing one coat as that was all that was needed to get the glossiness and shine that I'd expect from a red polish, which I was super pleased about. 'Valentine' is a very deep berry red, and comes across as quite vampish, which I'm actually quite enjoying. Other than me applying the worst nail job in the world, so far so good with chipping. I only used an Orly top coat and all seems to be going ok, but of course this could change. Would I buy this in the shops? No, and this is because of the packaging. It just goes to show that you can't judge a book buy it's cover, but Filthy Gorgeous should maybe think about their packaging for that reason, as they could be losing customers.
In other news, I'm back from a little unplanned 2 week blog hiatus! My Sailor has just had his last 2 week leave before he deploys, and even though I'd planned to blog, it just didn't happen as we were so busy having fun and out and about. He's now back to ship doing last preparations before deploying, and I'm back at work, so obviously back to blogging. I missed you guys!
