NOTD: Exposed, Topshop



After a few weeks of bare nails, it was time to try out a new polish. Queue Exposed by Topshop. Ever since I saw Master Plan by Essie I've been wanting a pale, off white grey so I picked this one up on my last trip to Topshop because I have no will power in that shop when it comes to their nail polish stand. The shade is everything I wanted, although slightly paler than Master Plan- you probably know that I'm not all that into bright shades on my tips and this is so muted and pretty. Now here comes the kinda bad news. I know I'm usually safe with the Topshop formula but this polish was so streaky that I needed three coats. That's something that I usually reserve for a shade as pale as Ballet Slippers, but if you're willing to put the effort in the final result will be super smooth and shiny. I'm willing to overlook this little hiccup because I'll get lots of wear out of this little babe all throughout the year. 

I hope you all enjoyed yet another long weekend? I spent my weekend at work from a ridiculously early time on Saturday, before spending some time with friends, and revising in between. I can't wait until these exams are all done so I can just enjoy summer, although I'll undoubtedly be worrying about my results until August 14th comes around.

  2. I love this colour, a slightly different take on all the white-tinged pastels that have been knocking around. I've never bought a Topshop nail polish, I may just have to invest. Good luck with your revision/exams!

  5. This is such a pretty shade of polish, it's a nice alternative to all of those bright whites. And I am obsessed with your midi ring!

  7. This is such a lovely shade! I really like pale, off white colours since white can be really in your face sometimes! And good luck in your exams and try not to worry about the results!
