Bourjois Amande Defile Swatch

You know sometimes you see something that gives you that lovely feeling of nostalgia, that almost takes you back to a different time in your life? Well, while walking past the Bourjois stand this weekend, I had that feeling whilst staring at this polish; Amande Defile, a pistachio green polish.

When I was about 11, I was given 3 polishes from Boots; a gorgeous lilac, a pale blue and a pistachio green. The green was my favourite, and I wore it whatever chance I had. So this polish is a blast from the past.



Frustratingly, and very oddly, my camera would not capture this colour correctly......except for the lid! The lid is the EXACT colour, but the bottle and polish would not come out correctly. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Also frustrating was the application of this polish - like trying to apply milk! I'm going to leave the lid off for a minute or two next time I use this, hope it thickens it up a bit. I had to apply 4 coats it was so thin! But I still love this colour, I can see it being used with some of my lovely glitters:)
