If it’s good enough for Beyonce….

14/01/2013

I know I shouldn’t – and I really hope this doesn’t offend anyone – but I can’t help but feel that for me, doing a NOTD (nail of the day for anyone who just thinks that I’ve got terrible spelling) is a little bit of a cop out. It’s just really easy to wack on a picture of your nails isn’t it? But – aha, the obligatory but – in a big fat U-turn and contradiction of myself, that’s exactly what I’m doing today.

There’s  two reasons why I’m going back on my laurels with this one: –

Number 1 – I read somewhere recently (pretty sure it was Company or Glamour…feel free to correct me) that the colour blue makes you happy. With the Christmas period well and truly over, the cold weather kicking in and just January generally being a it of a shitty dry month in general, I’m all for trying this latest gimmick!

Number 2 – The nail varnish I’m talking about today is practically a dupe of Nails Inc. Baker street aka, the ‘Beyonce nail varnish!’ Anyone that knows me, will know that I’m a little bit obsessed with Beyonce, pretty much just want to be her and…have become that person forever on the quest for a Beyonce arse. (#SkinnyGirlProblems) For my ‘street cred’ – not that I’d have any left for using that phrase in the first place – I probably shouldn’t have admitted that but, what can I say? I just can’t help but love the woman!

And the nail polish in question? Bourjois Bleu Fabuleux

Next to my recycling bin (which conveniently is identical in colour) don’t say I’m not a glamorous, classy girl!
And finally, here I am wearing it out…
…suits me doesn’t it?
3 Words (quoting Chezza C) – IN MY DREAMS!
I typically forgot to take a picture of Nails Inc. Baker street, but I would go as far to say they are pretty much identical. Nails Inc. polishes are priced at £11.00 and the Bourjois range (which you can find in Boots and Superdrug) retails for £5.99, which of course, the tight arse, cheap skate, pikey, bargain hunter in me, absolutely loves!

Have you tried this polish? Would you agree it was a dupe for Baker St? Whatever the answers to those questions may be, I’d love to know what you think!
Thanks so much for reading everyone, hope you enjoyed this post!

      Thanks Melanie. I have to admit when I was googling the whole 'mood lifter' thing, blue definitely wasn't getting a good right up. I need to find the article to back me up now ha!
