MANHATTAN LOTUS EFFECT NAIL POLISH 78C SWATCH AND REVIEW


I went on a trip to Berlin a year and a half ago to view the sites. Back then I wasn't that bothered by beauty products - and so sad I wasn't! As I went into a chemist I saw this, and fell in love. I'd never heard of the brand before and just loved how the colour looked. This gorgeous sky blue with hints of green, I had to have it. I put it on that evening and loved how amazing it felt and looked, and I believe that this nail varnish inspired me to do more with beauty.
Unfortunately Manhattan isn't available in the UK, but should be. There's a few colours on Fragrance Direct and on Ebay, so I will go on a splurge after the spending ban! I found this up again recently on a trip back home, and really wanted to share this. This is such a gorgeous creamy nail varnish that needs few coats. 'Extremely long lasting, intensive colour. Lotus extract strengthens nails and gives extra long lasting colour brilliance'. It's packed full of colour and gives an amazing finish worth showing off. The finish of this almost feels rubbery - And takes forever to chip. Sadly, I've only tried one of Manhattan's polishes, and so sad I have. After using this again I'm questioning if it's even better than OPI - And for everyone who knows me, I LOVE MY OPI! As you can see below, the colour is just stunning, and really is beautiful. After wearing this people asked me where I got it, and with a smile I'd say 'It's not available in the UK.' I'm so smug! Really wished this was in the UK and I can't wait to shop online after the spending ban is over. What do you think of the colour? And have you tried Manhattan Cosmetics?! This gorgeous colour is rfom the Lotus Effect collection in shade 78C. Thank you so much for reading!
