Advantages Range of colours
Disadvantages Where shall I begin? You'd better read on...
I’m quite a fan of Urban Decay make-up; the eye shadows are my particular favourites. They have a fantastically wide range of bold, shimmering colours which always seem to stand out from the other brands. Not only do they look good though they actually wear really well, they last all day or night and look just as good at the end of the day as they do when you first put them on. I don’t begrudge paying £10 for them because I know they actually look great (they look great on everyone by the way, I’m not being arrogant!). Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the nail enamels.I don’t seem to have had much success in the nail polish department recently. I tried a L’Oreal one a while ago which was supposedly chip-resistant but it was pretty useless. I expected better from a brand like Urban Decay
The aims of Urban Decay are pretty clear; they want to make-up for creative people who want to stand out from the crowd and give beauty an edge, in their own individual style. I’m not particularly bold with my make-up but I do love experimenting with the colours of the eye shadows and I totally support the fact that none of the products or ingredients are tested on animals. I don’t think I ask for a lot from a nail varnish, I want one that goes on easily, gives good coverage and doesn’t chip easily, I don’t think this is too much to ask especially when you are paying £8.50 for the product!I was drawn to the Urban Decay nailvarnishes simply because they have such a fantastic array of colours. I thin there is pretty much a colour to suit anyone for any occasion, they have great names too. I went on the website to see exactly how many colours there were and found 27 shades. I have to admit the colours are gorgeous, check out www.urbandecay.com for the full range. I chose Hotpants, a super-matallic pink. In the bottle it looks so shimmery and the colour is not exactly neutral but it is not quite as dramatic as some of them such as Bruise, a reddish purple with a green sheen, which to be honest just looks like oil!
The website claims that the nail enamels are new and improved offering polish perfection. They then go on to give four perfectly plausible reasons why the nail polish is so great. I’ll take you through each one of them.Firstly they praise the new bottle design saying it is easy to use with an all new ergonomic cap. Well I don’t have any gripes about the bottle. It is pretty similar to many others; the glass is quite thick with Urban Decay on the front and 10ml on the back. There is also a sticker on the bottom of the bottle telling you the name of the shade. The lid is silver with the brush held inside it. Ergonomic? I’m afraid I wouldn’t know even if it was but it was pretty easy to hold and use in a comfortable shape which you can see from the picture.
