NOTD - Adrenalin by Topshop Nails

Friends & I recently rehashed a shopping route which I hadn't taken for ages. A busy & equally stressful struggle shop through the pandemonium that is Oxford St. We started in the basement of Topshop & while one of our trio tackled the mile long returns queue, myself & the other engaged in an in depth analysis of the shoe department. Conclusions: Chloe Greens shoe collection is surprisingly good, we don't mind creepers but they're definitely not for us and we're a fan of platform trainers but only in certain colours & styles. We eventually meandered up to the top floor where I soon found myself in my element, the make up section. 

I've wanted to try one of the Topshop glitter nail polishes for ages but have been struggling to decide between Ice Crush, Adrenalin & Razzmatazz. With the help of my shopping support group I eventually went for Adrenalin, which is the pink based option out of the 3 because, well, it's pink, need I say more.

Adrenalin features holographic glitter in a transparent pink based polish. The glitter is a mix of normal circular flecks and larger hexagonal pieces which is a favourite combination of mine as it gives the appearance of depth to the polish! I absolutely love this nail polish, in fact I'd go as far to say that it's one of my favourites & I have a pretty huge collection (50+)! I'll definitely be buying Razzmatazz (the blue/purple toned version) next time I'm in Topshop. I think the reason I love these 2 in particular is because they have a coloured gel base instead of just being a standard clear glitter (Ice Crush). The pink in this adds a gorgeous undertone & I imagine the blue/purple option (Razzmatazz) will do the same.  

This looks stunning worn on it's own but you'll need 3 coats to get full coverage. It can also be worn over other colours for a variety of looks. It hasn't chipped on me yet but it has started to ware slightly on the tip (though I find this the case with most polishes unless I'm meticulous in applying my top coat over the top of my nails). The only thing I dread is removing it...!

Available for £6 from Topshop
