NOTD: Shellac Dark Lava

Do you ever get like me where there's a colour that's been taunting you? "Pick me! I'm amazing! You'll love me!"  Shellac in 'Dark Lava' has been sat on my wall rack whispering sweet nothings to me as I work.  It's an amazing extremely dark red, almost burgundy, kind of plum shade.  I have no idea why but I swear this is the shiniest Shellac colours, perhaps it's the slight shimmer it has or the combination of shimmer against a dark background. 

I held off for a while as the sun was still shining and it's very dark but when it was time to redo my toes I caved in and used it.  I've enjoyed it that much in this past week that when it was time to switch my fingernails I decided to put it on those too!!

Whilst I was in my summerhouse doing my nails I had my cats outside.  I don't generally let them in but it was cold so Poppy came in for a look around.  She's actually looking up at my Shellac wall rack there so I tell myself that she was picking a colour. 


I'm going to the US next month so I will have to decide on which colour to apply to my nails, I have a feeling I will need to fight all urges to put this one back on again!!  

Side note: It will be business as usual on here though, I have each post scheduled ahead for 9am every morning as always because that's just how I roll.
