Beauty backtrack

By Georgia Collins


A couple of weeks ago I posted with great excitement and enthusiasm about the new range of nail colours from American Apparel. Well it’s with a heavy beauty heart that I have to report that the polishes have since been taken off the shelves. I know, disaster! Apparently, rather than the formulas being toxic as some blogs have suggested, it’s actually the solidity (or lack of) of the bottles themselves that’s the problem. So while AA go off and rectify this – and I hope they do because I’m still dreaming about that dove grey shade – I thought I’d give you another cool new colour to try. I’ve just painted Van D’Go, £8.95 by Essie on my nails. It’s a rather delectable shade of milky apricot, sort of half pastel half neon. I can’t quite figure out what exactly makes it so gorgeous but whatever it is, it has well and truly got me out of my winter rut and feeling excited about spring colour again.
