Hope you're well today.
Here we have a surprise buy for me, a super-cheap £1.99 nude polish! Now I'm not a big fan of nude polishes, despite loving my pastels, but this one caught my eye because I'm looking for an antique cream for a nail art look I've got in my head.
I thought this might be the one I'm looking for. Unfortunately it wasn't, (not cream coloured enough) but I like it all the same:
It was streaky in one coat, and opaque in two, which is what's shown here. The formula was a tiny bit runny, but nothing too awkward, and perhaps half a shade darker once on and dry than in the bottle. It reminded me very much of the 'camel coats' we all used to wear, way back when...
It also reminded me very much of a bottle of concealer, and once I'd got that in my head I felt weird painting it on my nails haha! Here's another pic:
And finally, here's a pic of the brush, partly because there's a flash on the packaging that says 'new flat brush' so I thought you might like to see it, and partly because I always want to show brushes on my polish review posts. I'll include front view & side view to show that it is, indeed, flat:
And actually, the brush was the only thing that slightly let this polish down, the shape was actually fine, I did my little finger in more or less one stroke and pressed flat it went into a more slightly rounded shape, but it was just that little bit too stiff bristled to be perfect. However, bear in mind I'm comparing it with Nails Inc and Jessica polishes that cost more than a tenner each. No complaints on glossiness or coverage though!
Also not only are they £1.99 each, they're 3 for £5 in Superdrug, which is where I got mine, so they really are a bargain! Thoroughly recommended.
Until next time...
