Diabolical Nail Polish by Firebox*

We all know at this point that I love Wes Anderson right? So when Firebox sent me their Diabolical Nail Polish set based on the utterings of M. Gustave, the premiere concierge at the Grand Budapest Hotel, I was more than a little intrigued.

With names like Physically Repulsed, Enchanting Old Ruin and Dynamite in the Sack, the guys over at Firebox know how to grab the attention of any Anderson fan.

A delicate sheer pink, Physically Repulsive gives you the slightest wash of colour so your nails don't look too naked. Even with three coats the colour isn't that opaque so enjoy it for what it is. It reminds me of the delicate pastries found in Mendl's. A classy and sophisticated shade.

Reminiscent of the bare walls of the jail M. Gustave and Zero spent some of their time in, this slate grey shade will be perfect for autumn (or the dull Summer weather). I used three coats of the polish to make sure it became fully opaque but you could probably get away with just two. Also, there's no top coat on these swatches so check out that shine!

Another autumnal shade to crack out in September, Dynamite in the Sack is the same royal purple shade of M. Gustave and his fellow hotel staff's uniforms. Another two/three coater, this shade is a stunner.

Now for some technical bits. The brushes are long and wider than your average so application is a doddle. The formula of all three is quite thin, hence the three coats on all of them. Just make sure you let each coat dry enough before applying the next, otherwise it'll be streak city.

This polish set is the perfect gift for any fellow Wes Anderson fan who also happens to love nail polish. You can pick up the Diabolical nail polishes in a set (with GORGEOUS packaging) from Firebox HERE (£12.99)
