NOTD - Polished London in "Portobello"

I'm not usually a fan of receiving nail polishes in beauty boxes as they tend to be more on the side of miss rather than hit but the colour of this polish I received in this month's Her Fashion Box caught my eye straight away.

The beautiful opaque shade of indigo sits right inbetween a deep shade of purple and navy blue.  I usually have my nails shellaced at the nail salon as my nail polish always seems to chip just hours after applying it or I don't sit still for long enough and they smudge.  This polish is so opaque I could've got away with one coat but I applied two and a top coat.  Dry time was around 15-20 mins and there was no hint of streaking or smudging which is almost a first for me.

The photo above is taken 3 days after application and shows the true feature of the nail polish.  Only my pointing finger is slightly chipped on top and a small amount of wear on the tips.  Most other nail polishes I've worn would've peeled around the sides and chipped a lot more than what is shown here.  I'm crazy impressed with this nail polish and have made many compliments on it also.  The wear time is around 4-5 days and Polished London is also "4 free" which means there's no nasty's.

RRP is $7.99 and I'll definitely be looking to buy some more shades in this range.

P.S Don't forget to like Imminent Beauty on facebook (link below or on the side bar) to be the first to hear about the beauty boxes, when blogs go live and everything else beauty related!


  1. Love that colour, and great that it wears well. I haven't seen that brand before but if I see it for sale somewhere, I might just have to pick some up.

    1. I saw an ad that said they have it priceline now but I haven't seen it for myself. I'll be keeping an eye out too :)

  2. The colour looks great on you. I love opaque nail polishes that only require 1 or 2 coats.
