Didn't This Used To Be A Lippie?

It's time for another random pick from the Boots 17 Gift Set, and it's a colour that makes me feel old, really old. Boots 17 High Gloss Twilight Teaser, come on down!

The polish itself is a nice nanny colour and pretty sheer, taking four coats to get the coverage you see above. I'm not sure if I like it for the right reasons though, cos I'm 99.9% sure that Twilight Teaser was an 80s classic lipstick that I used to write "Me <3 Raul" on a the sheltered side of either Tesco or Fads. Lasted years and years up there too. Raul, however, didn't.

Some badly stamped nails, earlier

Gave it a very messy Konading with Bundle Monster plate BM 210 and some Superdrug MUA Shade 2 (black). It looks a bit rubbish because my hands are extremely non-cooperative today, however the plate itself is lovely and produced some fabby stamps on my other hand, albeit upside down :)

There then followed a slight polish ruining incident whilst cleaning the cooker and I thought that some glitter would hide the majority of the damage. Some Saffron Colour 44 - a sheer, pinky shimmery, glittery polish - was applied over the top and it was an improvement of sorts.

Chuck glitter over the crap bits and maybe no-one will notice

Kinda reminds me of minty sucky sweets with icing sugar. Doesn't taste as nice, though, I checked.
