I got a lovely surprise parcel in the post last week – a selection of products from the newly launched Miss Beauty London range, which is exclusive to PoundWorld and every item is just £1! I thought I’d try out the 4 nail polishes I received for this week’s Midweek Manicure post. The shades I’ve got to play with are 374 Tiffany*, 375 Candy Floss*, 382 Malibu* and 387 Starkers* – how fab are those names?!
Tiffany is a really pretty mint green colour, obviously named after the iconic packaging of the high end jewellery store. Excitingly it also has a very subtle diamond shimmer running though it too. It’s a really bright pretty colour on the nail and perfect for summer.
Candy Floss, as you’d expect is a light sugary pink. On the nail however it’s practically clear. It can be built up however and I added three coats for the below pictures. I usually like my nails to be quite bold but my mum would adore this barely there light pink.
Malibu is a super bright coral pink and looks gorgeous in the sunshine. I can imagine this will be one of the most popular shades in the collection as its a very universal colour.
Starkers is a taupe-y nude shade. It’s quite brown toned but looks very chic and will be a great shade for work, and wearing all year round.
The bottles are a really generous size – 12ml for just £1, which is such a bargain! I really like that they have nice long shaped brush handles, which makes them really easy to paint with and often you see stumpy little bottle tops on budget nail polishes.
I did find the consistency of the polish very thick and a bit gloopy, so it came out quite patchy on my nails and gave a very grainy effect, as you can see here. It is blimmin hot in London right now (and my boyfriend gets very annoyed when I put my nail polish in the fridge haha!) so this could be a contributing factor. However a good slick of topcoat and it smoothed this over and gave a nice shiny finish. I used three coats on each finger to try and counter act the patchyness of application and each layer dried nice and quickly, as it says on the bottle.
