NOTD - Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum, We're Nubbin' It

Hi loves,

So, while wearing the beautiful OPI Suzi and the Seven Düsseldorfs that I showed you yesterday I had a little accident. I was moving some tables at work and broke my middle fingernail on my left hand right down :( It was the first time in a long time that I've had a break that wasn't due to a peel, and the nail was pretty strong, it was just a silly accident. At least it showed my nails are getting stronger though, just need to get rid of the damn peels, which I suspect are bad at the moment because of my general health not anything I am doing wrong. So, we're back to super nubs again, and I didn't even manage to get the nail that I broke even because the break is too far down. The nails on my right hand are ok, and the big ridge on the middle finger where the nail came off has all but grown out, so you might see a bit more of righty for a while!

Anyway, I was feeling pretty fed up, and I didn't even bother removing my polish that night - I just trimmed all my nails down and left them. Then when I got home from work this morning, I had a lovely package waiting for me that cheered me right up, from one of my gorgeous birthday club ladies. She managed to grab me a sweet mini bottle of Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum the last time Dollface opened her shop. Thank you so much hun! Expecto Patronum is probably the only indie polish I have ever really lusted for - sure there are others on my wishlist but I'm quite happy to let them sit there. I had to have this one.

I used two coats of Expecto Patronum over one of OPI Alpine Snow, with a top coat of Poshe. I don't know if you could get it to opacity on it's own and I didn't want to try - I've only got a mini! I'm not wasting this baby! My teeny tiny nails look like spearmint polos! I know what I'm going to be buying later...

And say hello to righty. Cue slightly awkward hand pose...

Ah, isn't she beautiful? I have been spring cleaning (OK, I know it's nearly autumn, I'm either really late or super early...) this morning and it's already chipped quite badly on two fingers :( I'm going to have to be inventive and try to make it last another day though because I really don't want to take it off! I can't stop looking at my nails :)

Like I said, I don't have any other indies (apart from one Lynn, but she doesn't class herself as an indie, she's a higher being or deity or something. Anyway, do you have any recommendations for ones I should check out? Preferably one that ships to the UK for a reasonable rate and will leave me with enough money to feed my kids with* after a purchase...


*Just re-read this, and it sounds like I feed my kids money, and had an image of them chowing down on a bowl of 50p pieces for breakfast.. They don't, but I need money to buy food to feed them with. Just thought I should clarify...

  1. Hahahhaha, so funny...no feeding the kids pennies!Not even with milk! E-mail me at gotmytwinkie at gmail.com I might know someone who will ship to the UK.

  2. This is a really nice polish and reminds me of spring too, It's horrible when a nail breaks , i have a split on the nail bed very sore but i keep fixing it with the teabag method until it reaches the free edge!

  3. I jut bought this one as well, can't wait to get it on. Your pics are lovely. Sorry to hear about the break


Thanks for your comments! I appreciate them all :) I'll do my best to answer any questions, but if you just can't wait feel free to contact me via email or Twitter!
