At the end of 2013, I got a little bit obsessed by Mulberry’s pointed signature ballerinas. As usual, I waited for a sales bargain, but somehow I completely missed the start of the sale and by the time I got my act together, they had sold out in my size. Not even Mulberry’s helpful customer service department could track any down (there were a pair at Heathrow, apparently! Hmm!). So, I purchased the gorgeous high heeled versions (which I love!) – but I live in flats, so my wistful lusting wasn’t sated… Until I saw a mention of the shoes in the Mulberry section of Purseblog’s forum, that is! Turns out, Kafka.co.uk had some in stock… Not only that, but they were at sale prices. Not only that, but they were in my size. Not only that, but they had both pairs I was hankering after! NOT ONLY THAT, but there was a 10% off code as well! My goodness…
Burberry Nail Varnish: 102 English Rose
Since the launch of their nail varnish collection, Burberry have introduced a large range of new colours, including selections of nude, red and ‘runway’ shades. As English Rose is my favourite lip colour, I wanted to pick up the same colour for my nails!
Burberry’s English Rose (102) is a pretty ballet pink with a hint of peach. It’s very sheer and takes a few coats for full coverage.
It makes for a great neutral, although it’s just slightly lighter to my skin colour, which isn’t my preference.
The only niggle I have with the Burberry range is that the brushes are hard to use – I wish they’d use rounded brushes like Dior! What do you think? Have you had a chance to try any of Burberry’s range?
Purchase Burberry nail varnish online at Burberry.com for £15 for an 8ml bottle. Find the nails section here, and English Rose here.
And just because I can’t resist my matte top coat:
I always prefer my colours in matte! So glad I stocked up on this top coat…
