I love 'British Summertime' - It's a gorgeous silvery grey and I although it didn't feel dark enough for the winter months, I'm pretty sure I'll be rocking this in the spring and autumn. My main criticism of these nail polishes actually relates to the bottle, which looks pretty, but that big black top makes it pretty awkward to paint your nails, especially when painting the dreaded right hand :( The brush was much thinner than I am used to with the Essie polishes, but that made it perfect for my
wrecked smaller nails, which were clearly in need of some TLC!
When it came to how hard-wearing the polishes were, I'll let the photos I took
over five days (on my iPhone, sorry) do the talking...

During my five days wearing 'British Summertime', I prepared and cooked three evening meals, washed the dishes (with gloves on) three times, had four showers, went to the gym and enjoyed a weekend in Bolton. As you can see, minus a few small chips, John Lewis COLOUR was good for a full three days, which is about on par with my beloved Essie. As most people paint their nails specifically for a night out, John Lewis COLOUR is a great investment as it goes on well and looks great!
My buddy Mandeep tested 'Rosy Cheeks' for me as I felt it was too bright
for my see-through skin.
