This is my favourite nude-y pink nail varnish. It would definitely be my "mannequin hands" pick, and has the added benefit of being a treatment that reckons it can give you longer, healthier nails in 5 days.
It's Sally Hansen's Age Correct Growth Treatment, and this is two coats topped off with her Instant Dry topcoat. Now, I've tried all the classic (or "classical" as any Showhouse contestant worth their salt would say) pale pink shades from Essie, including Mademoiselle, Ballet Slippers, and South of the Hi'way and the streakiness drove me to distraction, as did the fact that 3 or 4 coats were required to hit bottle colour.
By contrast, this goes on really well and only takes 2 coats to be opaque (although 1 would work for a more natural finish). Oh, and at 6-ish quid it's about half the price of its Essie counterparts. Score!
What nail varnish or other lovely beauty bits are you wearing today or planning to sport over the loooong (yay!) weekend?
