NOTW: Umberto Giannini Lady Cloudia

This week's nail polish is courtesy of one of my colleagues. I noticed her nails last week and as I've never tried an Umberto Giannini polish before I wanted to give it a go. I was also an elephant at the weekend (rugby sevens, don't ask!) so a grey polish worked perfectly for that.

Firstly, I love the name. This deep grey is called Lady Cloudia, certainly the colour of the clouds above us during the rugby on Saturday. The brush is quite thin but it still went on fairly evenly and built to full coverage with two coats. It also dried really fast.

If you fancy something a bit different to all the neon brights going about at the moment then this is a great colour. I've had it on for 4 days now and I have a few minor chips but all in all it has lasted well.

I think most people think of Umberto Giannini for hair products but I really like this polish and would like to try more of their Painted Lady nail polishes. I believe this one is from a set from Boots which also includes a lovely pink called Lady Love, a gold shimmer called Lady Luscious and more - a full set review can be found at this blog

What do you think? Have you tried an Umberto Giannini polish before?
