I have to say that this is the first challenge I have decided to take part in and I’m really looking forward to it!
Many thanks to Debbie over at The Crumpet for organizing it, and all of the lovely people at Crumpet’s Nail tarts Facebook group! 🙂
There’s even a Pinterest board here If you’d like to go see some more of the other lovely nails from the challenge!
- The polish you use should be at least one year old.
- If you haven’t been a polishaholic that long, you can use the oldest polishes you have.
- The polish should be previously used, but if you’re stuck, you could free a yearling from Mount Untried.
- You can use more than 1 polish as long as it fits the theme and the rules.
My GOT Pink Nails
Avon Futura Kir Royal F65
What makes this polish worthy (over all my other pink polishes) to be showcased in the GOT challenge?
This is a shade called ‘Kir Royal’ and it’s from the Avon Futura range, and as far as I know (tho I could be wrong) this polish was made in the late 80’s!
Avon Futura Kir Royal
Just look at that packaging!
I applied two coats (over two coats of base coat) and OMG the smell! The fumes! Ugh! I think it even made my sinuses crinkle up, and I ended up sticking my hand out of the window lol.
I dread to think about what chemical nastiness is in this!
It’s actually a nice colour and it’s incredibly glossy, but applying it was a nightmare! The brush is really stiff and scratchy, it was like trying to paint my nails with a toothbrush! That could just be that the brush is so old it has gone stiff but the bristles where very thick so maybe all old polishes where like that.
I have to admit that this is one of my untried polishes, rather than one I haven’t used for a long time, I do have another one from this range which is the same age that I’m going to be using later on in this challenge! 🙂
Oh if you have any info on this polish or polish range I would love to hear about it! I have done a bit of research but I really can’t find that much about them 🙂
