Today in my manicure I am wearing SoSu by Suzanne Jackson’s nail polish in Who’s The Boss with No7’s Nail Effect Polish in Dancing Shoes on my nail tips.
My polish look begins with SoSu by Suzanne Jackson’s Nail Polish in Who’s The Boss, a blackened cherry red, it’s such a rich glossy shade! I picked this up loving the look of nearly noir shades, which as soon as I clapped eyes on it, I thought why not!
This polish was part of Beauty Blogger Suzanne Jackson’s initial beauty launch back in the Spring of last year, her Gel Nail Polish Collection. I had seen these polishes on my travels here and there and admired the variety of shades, so when I began blogging I kept thinking they looked nice enough pick some up to try. Happy with my polishes I tested out I regularly check the SoSu polish stands for any new shades that might be up my street.
For some reason I only noticed this Who’s The Boss shade in more recent times, even though from what I can gather this is one of the original shades she launched her range with.
The colour is almost a chocolate toned cherry, this shade reminds me of an upcoming polish shade recently previewed for Dior’s AW16 makeup collection. A perfect polish addition for the coming season!
This polish is a rich creme formula with loads of gloss, 2 coats of this is what you need for full opacity. Finished off with a top coat and this polish really sings! This shades lasts really well, I get at least 5-6 days out of this shade before any signs of tip wear or chipping, with it’s gel polish formula giving reasonable longevity and goregous shine.
It looks so nice, even without an extra florish. But I couldn’t resist adding a little pizazz!
The shade is still available from SoSu polish stockists here in Ireland, in pharmacies and select Penney’s (Primark) stores. Do check out her Facebook page for updated stockists near you, you can also pick up her polishes for her SoSu Makeup Range website.
To complete my look I added dusting of No7 Nail Effects Polish in Dancing Shoes, a beautiful holographic silver toned glitter, just on the diagonal of nail tips!
It’s really striking in the light, my camera is failing to show off the wonderful sparkle but when it dazzles, it’s beautiful. I don’t tend to wear holographic glitters to often, but lately I am really getting back into them, especially when they are a finer glitter like this. These polishes are much easier to remove and generally less hassle.
This particular shade I received in a No7 set at Christmas, which had 12 polishes for each month of year in miniature size. These polishes I tend to use when travelling, just so I can take more colours with me. I know what your thinking, polish addict problems!
But some how this shade for one reason or another I had not used at all, not even to swatch, so I thought why not give it a go in a mani! The shade is still available from No7’s makeup range if you want to pick it up, a great topper to add to your collection.
This polish formula is good for keeping your nails chip free, thats the one good thing about glitters I find. Especially with my strategically placed holographic glitter nail tips! It covers a mulitude of sins!
I must say I love the richness or the Who’s The Boss shade against the coolness of Dancing Shoes, especially when I move my hand, my nail tips flash all different holographic colours as the light hits. Plus with just the tips painted it’s less in your face, for subtle sparkle. A great combo!
