As a serial nail biter for the past 20 years, I have now given up and decided to try all the different varnishes, which I will now review!
SIZE and LOOKS - The bottles are a simple rounded design, holding 10ml. You can clearly see the colour inside.
WHERE TO BUY - I have been told you can buy them in Superdrug, but I got mine free with a newspaper.
PRICE - These nail varnishes are quite cheap at £3.99. They are a middle kind of polish, not dirt cheap, but not expensive.
COLOURS - There is a massive range of colours with different finishes. I have the colour 'Atomic' which is a bright orange with a matte finish. There are some nice sumemry colours and 'clubbing' colours.
BRUSH - The brush is long and small. I managed to paint my nails without getting varnish all on the surrounding skin. It is easy to use with both my left and right hand.
CONSISTENCY - It is a thick consistency and so you could probably get away with just using one coat if you were in a hurry.
END LOOK - The colour I had was a nice matte finish. Sometimes I go over it with a clear top coat if I want it shiny. You have to wait until it is completely dry though before you do that, or it mixes together and takes forever to dry.
DRYING- This varnish dries relatively quickly, but I waited a bit longer just to be on the safe side.
REMOVING - So long as you use a good nail varnish remover, I had no trouble removing the varnish and it did not stain my nails.
CHIPPING - The polish is quite resisitant and takes 2-3 days to chip.
OVERALL RESULT - A thick varnish which looks quite glam!
