I’m a big fan of cocktails. At some point in the past few years, the humble cocktail bar experienced a bit of a resurgence. Gone are the days of the tacky image yuppie Del-Boy style cocktail, and enter a new generation of posh bars serving exotic and delicious concoctions. Yum.
A Long Island Iced Tea, for those not in the know, is a mixture of vodka, rum, tequila and cola. It’s not one of my favourites (I prefer the fruit or vanilla based drinks) but hey – it’s a classic, and if someone else is buying, I won’t say no.
Given the fact that a Long Island Iced Tea is usually kind of brown (or tea) coloured, I’m confused as to why Precision christened this one with the same name. It’s beige. And I’d never drink a cocktail that was this colour!
Name aside, this is a nice work-appropriate shade. It is thinner than I normally like in a nail varnish and I think this was four coats in the end. I had no application issues at all though and it went on beautifully. I dried it with Nubar Diamont and it ended up looking pretty good.
I wore this polish for three days as I had a run of client meetings meaning that I had to be work-appropriate for a fairly lengthy period of time. By the end of the third day, this polish looked as good as if I’d just applied it. I am really happy with the wear and longevity of this, and those of you who want a neutral toned, long lasting nail varnish could certainly do far worse than consider this one.
It might not be the most exciting colour but it served me very well indeed. Strange though – exotic name, boring shade. Still, like I say, not every day has to be a wacky colour or effect, and I was extremely pleased with this.
What do you think? Is it something you’d choose? And tell me – what’s your favourite cocktail (or mocktail?)
