I would not have chosen to buy this polish. I don't really do these subtle, nude shades anyway, and I already have (and really like) Essie Sand Tropez, so I don't really need another. But I don't look a gift horse in the mouth!
This is two coats of Colville Mews, with topcoat. I thought it was ok, but I prefer the way that Essie's Sand Tropez looks. I am really bad at describing colours, and the two look very similar in the bottles. However, I think that Sand Tropez has a touch more grey in the mix, and Colville Mews has more... something else. And whatever the something else is, I think is less flattering on my hand. While I really really liked Sand Tropez, I'm not overly keen on Colville Mews.
Also, this one chipped and peeled really badly during the first morning of wearing this. As I had such a fail with the Nails Inc Jubilee, I wondered whether it was to do with the basecoat I used. Instead of my usual OPI Nail Envy, I used the mini Caviar Basecoat that came with my Nails Inc set - I used this both with Colville Mews and with Jubilee the other day.
You can already see a couple of tiny chips on the tip of my index finger, and that's within hours of finishing painting.
My ring is OPI Be a Dahlia Won't You? and I Lily Love You.
I will try this again with a different basecoat, but I doubt I'll end up keeping this one.
(I have never heard of Colville Mews as a London street, so I looked it up. Apparently it's in Notting Hill, near Portobello Market.)
