Mind The Gap, Victoria

I found the most gorgeous blue polish from Rimmel called 'Mind The Gap, Victoria', which I assume must be based on the London Underground Victoria Line blue. It is a beautiful pale cornflower colour. I must admit it's quite a summery colour but as I don't wear a lot of dark polishes, I'm sure I'll be using it all year round.

This colour works really well with white so I chose a few patterns to draw on, as typically I couldn't just choose one. I love the close dots and weave effect, and the lines worked out better than I was expecting. I need to practice the zigzags a bit more as they are a bit messy. Also, basketcase (on the thumb) is easier to do with a striper brush than freehand using a nail art pen, but I didn't want to use a different medium for it. 

The first time I wore this polish I planned my outfit badly and ended up teaming it with a burgundy top. The boyf was very happy to point out that I was wearing Aston Villa colours! I'll have to be more careful in the future.
