As promised, here is a quick review of the Primark Beauty nail polish set that I purchased in the week. I had been desperate to give it a try and was inspired this morning when I realised that it was so blazing hot outside! I had a spare hour, so I painted the nail wheel with the standard colours and then did a bit of basic nail art over the top to see how it came out.
The polish had quite a nice smell to it at first, not chemically like a lot of other polishes, but I soon realised that the sweet smell was covering up very heady fumes which was not nice and stuck around for quite a while. Note to self, open a window for ventilation next time.
I used two coats of polish on the nail wheels but I would recommend maybe three, as the application was a bit watery. I would also suggest using a base coat and a top coat. The finish was not at all glossy so a top coat is a must.
On the positive side, I really like the colours and each shade has a tiny hint of shimmer which makes the colours pop. It also looks really nice in the sun as well.
I didn't expect miracles for £2 for the set, but I was happy with them overall. I would never replace my precious professional products such as OPI, however I would definitely buy Primark polish again if I saw some colours that I liked, or it was getting towards the end of the month and the bank account has approaching empty.
I can't wait to try the Minx-like silver chrome false nails next! Watch this space.
