The Sample Size Mani

Hurrah! The postman finally delivered my April Birchbox after missing my delivery - Damn not having a post box. I knew exactly what I'd be rummaging for once I ripped into the packaging, and here it is. In this month's Birchbox they're promoting nail brand Colour Club's collaboration with stylist Gala Gonzalez and decided to let us subscribers choose what colour from the collection that we wanted to layer onto our tips. With a selection of four on my hands (literally) this called for a process of elimination.. 

Left-Right: Breakfast At / Heirloom Pearls / Gold Struck / Aquamarine Azulino

It got down to Gold Struck and Heirloom Pearls until I finally settled on the latter. Pale pastels aren't a colour I usually lap onto my nails, but for spring summer I've been inclined to pick up a few bottles whilst browsing the isles of boots. So, the deats. The colour is a lovely pearl tinged ivory and not at all the dreaded tip-ex white that takes pretty pastels to a whole new pasty level. It looks dreamy on the nails but the down side? The formulae isn't that easy to work with. My tips received 3 lashings and there was still a slight streak to the finish, but I'm going to keep working with it as this light and lovely base oozes (oozes? OK.) spring time season. This sample size mani has deffinetly sparked a need for more pastel shades on these digits. *wiggles fingers*
