Midnight Passion by H&M

Last weekend, after my sister’s baby shower, we went to the mall for a quick shopping trip and I insisted on going to H&M to utilize a $6 gift card to Wrapp that was about to expire. After searching through racks and racks of clothing and not feeling very inspired by the selection, I headed straight to the nail art section. Initially, I was going to get a box of cute panda and owl nail stickers, but saw that their nail polish was on sale for buy two, get one free. Normally $4.95 a bottle, I walked out of the store with three bottles, only having to pay $4 total.

This swatch is of Midnight Passion, a beautiful vamp-y red shade that I’ve never had the opportunity of owning before. The color actually brings me back to tenth grade, when a classmate walked into my AP World History class wearing the most beautiful dark red nail color by Chanel. Looking back, I remember being envious– she was so fashionable and always up-to-date with the latest trends. So now, every time I look down at this beautiful color, I feel pretty proud wearing it…is that weird? Hahah ;)

I’ve never tried using nail color from H&M before, but if this particular shade is indicative of how the other two will apply, I’m hooked! Such smooth application, and only two easy coats needed!

After this great experience, I’m super excited to swatch the other two! Stayed tuned for this weekend’s November guest post, as well as next week for my next swatch. Have a fabulous weekend! xo
