Vintage Valentines - 17 - Space Babe

Lilac/silver pearly foil  

Welcome to the second Vintage Valentine!  

This polish comes from 17,  which I don't think is a particularly 'covetable' or collectable brand.    

17 or Seventeen is a Boots exclusive brand aimed at a younger market (15-19 year olds according to the internet).  The brand itself is over 40 years old, launched in 1968.  I'm not sure how old this polish is but this version of the 17 packaging was launched in 1998.

Space Babe is an Advanced Wear One Coat Polish in a lilac/grey pearl/foil.

Application was ok, but of course it's pretty brush-strokey and I did two coats for completeness.

It's quite pretty and has a soft glow, almost like brushed steel

  1. Hi - what's the closest colour to this you can recommend on the high street now? I have been hoping it'd come back for years so I Google it every now and then, and found this post today! ��


Thanks for your comment - I appreciate all of them!
