NOTD a surprisingly lovely duck egg blue; Mint Choc Chip from Boots 17

This little Lasting Fix polish is one of a selection of copycat Spring pastels that 17 have brought out in the last couple of months. There's also a pink, a purple, and a pale yellow that Amanda Wright models here.

I picked this one up after seeing the gorgeous pastel blue-turquoise Lisa Eldridge wears in this video.

This polish may cost a mere £2.99, but the shade is a stunner and I've had quite a few compliments on it.  It's just blue enough to still be a blue and not a turquoise, but it's a blue with an unusual greenish warmth that really stands out.

I didn't expect to be able to emulate whatever's on Lisa's nails for under £3, but I have to say that with 2 coats and a wholesome topping of the magical wizard's-glaze that is Seche Vite, this lasted as well as any high-end polish that I own, as well as looking the business.

Lasting Fix polishes are currently on offer at Boots - you can get 2 for £5, though as usual Boots only have a fraction of the shades on their site, and these spring ones not included.

(NB Boots if you're short on content editors for your site, my rates are super-reasonable.)


  1. Hiya, ooh I don't think they had this shade when I picked up the yellow, but I like it!! Thanks for the message too! xx

  2. Such a pretty colour! Will definitely take a look when I'm next in Boots!
