I begrudge paying lots of money for something that i do not wear very often, especially if it is polish for my toes that will be covered by socks and shoes for most of the year, so i will always try out a bargain.
I am a bit of a primark fan as it is cheap and cheerful and i believe that the company is making good efforts these days for better working conditions for their manufacurers too. They have been doing a make-up range fairly recently and i thought id take a look. The make-up itself seems to have 2 different themes. The extremely cheap and cheerful range, with basic make-up pieces such as lip and eye liner in clear plastic wrapping, is basic to say the least but is priced between £1 AND £1.50. There is then the more advertised range, which to be honest looks a little like the packaging to Benefit products, dare i say it. All the pieces in this range are boxed with very stand out packaging and funky design.
Back to the product though, this Nail laquer as Primark like to call it was in the cheap of the cheap range and cost me £1 - bargain! It came in the transparent clear packaging with the solid pink varnish inside.
Once out of the packaging sits a round cylindrical pot made of glass with an opaque white plastic lid. The pot holds 10ml of varnish, which is actually a decent amount! The labbelling is minimal with the writing 'Nail polish - Designed to accentuate your nails'.
The rear of the bottle states that it is flammable, and where it is produced. ONce opened, the limit to use the varnish is 2 years and to be fair, with the amount i use varnish it will still be sitting with my other products then too!!
Now the brush/applicator on the varnish is bristle and roughly 1cm long coloured in black. the Varnish is quite thick and as stated previously, a fuschia pink in colour. I found it very easy to apply to be fair, but i needed 2 coats and around half an hour to allow it to dry properly.
The colour is very bold and the coverage once 2 coats are applied is good. I have worn both sandals and shoes with socks since applying the varnish over a week ago, and have only found 1 chip on my little toe, other than that all the colour has stayed!
For £1, i cannot really ask for a lot more, you cant expect gold plated applicators and super glue like stay for a quid. Well worth a go, 5/5 from me!
