Boots 17 nail polishes..

Another nail related post (there's another to come!) When I saw these new pastel polishes in Boots recently I had to have them! I am used to wearing mostly dark shades and now its spring I wanted a change.

L-R Fairy Cake, Sherbet Lemon, Parma Violet, Mint Choc Chip, Orange Soda

I bought them when they were on 3 for 2 (I got another 17 polish not part of the collection)

My thoughts? I love the colours, the staying power is rubbish! They chipped on me within hours (thats without a top coat but I rarely use one), the consistency is good on all but the pink one, its terrible after 2 coats and 3 coats just makes it look tacky and not very nice. Mint choc chip isn't mint but its a nice blue colour, and Orange Soda really isn't a pastel. The lilac one is my favourite but I had 3 chips within 2 hours of it drying.

  1. I only picked up one, the Orange Soda and i haven't tried it yet. I'm so sad it comes up so much darker than in the bottle, i liked the idea of a pastel orange, which i hadn't seen anywhere else. Glad i only picked up that one if the formula is a bit rubbish!
