Weekend in Paris

Is the name of Miner's A/W Nail Paint that I have been obsessed with currently. Of course I'd enjoy a 'real'  weekend in Paris too but until then, this beautiful colour will do.

Before showing you that, here's a sneak peak at five gorgeous shades that Miners Cosmetics have come out with for A/W. Fortunately they all have a gorgeous cream, glossy finish to them without a speck of glitter or shimmer.

Such deep, statement colours are simply perfect for the fall and you do not have to fall back on your boring browns and reds.

In the picture below we have, Fairytale of New york, Bangkok Blues, Weekend in Paris, Plum and London Calling. Without sounding sarcastic, nothing in this world can describe London better than an understated yet glamorous taupe! 

Although I cannot fault any of the colours really as the deep jewel tones definitely call out to me, I have two favourites namely Bangkok Blues and Weekend in Paris

Bangkok Blues is a gorgeous sapphire blue with a slight green undertone to it, which makes it pretty interesting and different from the rest of the blues I own. A good three coats are needed to achieve an opaque finish however. 

As for Weekend in Paris, it's pure love at first sight. Such a delightful colour with flawless application and finish. Reflects the romantic city in every way!

Funnily it even reminds of Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) most worn Lip colour in Gossip Girl. Such pinky-reds is what she always wears. Now only if I can find a lip colour in this shade too.

It's a pretty good collection overall and for prices like £2.99 each, this is the perfect choice if you want to replicate runway trends for less.

Miner's Cosmetics also have a spanking new website that's not only pretty looking but much easier to use. Do check it out!

Weekend in Paris looks like a stunning colour. Are they this glossy naturally or did you use a top coat? I've not tried these before but I think the bottles are quite nice. Gorgeous autumn colours too

@Melissa - They are naturally glossy to be honest besides Bangkok Blues. This is my third day wearing 'Weekend in Paris' and its still super glossy.

Fairytale of New York and London Calling are definitely my favourites. I love a good cream polish and the price can't be beat!
