Yummy Mummy May I

Nails I Love


Hi Goddesses

Mummy May I has long been at the top of my list of favourite polishes.  There’s just something about it that is simultaneously simple and special.

This reminds me of a spooky blackcurrant jelly!  The base is a beautiful browny purple, which is then littered with specks of violet micro glitter.  Unlike its sister, FORTUNE TELLER, the glitter is all the same size, but no less dramatic for that.

In the bottle, Mummy May I is super pretty, devilish and full of voodoo.  Put it on the nail, and this looks like blackcurrant crush, the clash of the bruised skin mixing with the sweet inner juices.

There is a slight jellyish quality to this polish, and the first layer goes on worryingly sheer (but then the 2nd coat goes on really thick, go figure!) but that just adds to the squished quality of the colour.  This is like purple hearts exploded and were then mixed into the polish, and now they bloom and beat violet, begging for mercy.

This is no longer my all time favourite polish, but it’s still a Top 10-er.  As a purple whore, it ticks so many of my boxes – shiny, speckled, 2 things going on at once, dark, magical, witchy, decadent …. I do love this so.

I am disappointed in my photos though.  Whilst I have given myself a round of applause for not needing to cover up any messiness with my logo lol, I don’t think my photos are as good as the ones Captivating Claws and Trace Face Files took recently – they did a much better job of capturing the purple base.  Ho hum, can’t win em all!

Enjoy J


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
