The perfect polish for showing off an engagement ring..!

I'm still in shock regarding the title of this blog post! I haven't written in a while as I've been busy working, studying and what not, and I didn't have anything that excited me enough to write about... until now!

On Thursday evening my wonderful boyfriend proposed, completely out of the blue, and of course I said yes :D After we'd done some celebrating and told family and friends, we went searching for the ring. Soon people were asking to see a picture, but I had a major dilemma on my hands (ho ho): what nail polish should I use to best compliment the ring?! 

I settled on Rimmel's new 60 Seconds polish in '200 Princess Pink', one I'd bought a few weeks ago but hadn't yet tried. It goes on a lovely pale pink with a good consistency and has a nice thick brush. I found two coats gave a perfect, even colour with no streaking. It dries super fast and has remained chip-free for the past four days. 

The ring! White gold & diamond :) And the nail polish!
