So i indulged this weekend and treated myself to 2 new nail polishes. I couldnt decide on which one to wear so i decided to wear both; one on my tootsies and one on my fingernails.
Both are by 17 (Boots brand) but from different nail polish ranges. RRP: £2.99

17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish - Woo Me

This was an impulse by purely because i was buying two other 17 products and it was 3 for 2. I loved the colour - a soft pale lilac, ideal for the upcoming spring days :)

Unfortunately this didnt go on too well, it seemed watery and thin. I have quite a few different 17 nail polishes and this is the first time i've expereienced this while using them. It also dried extremely quickly which can be a plus but it was drying before i had even finished painting the nail! Once i'd put on a second coat the colour thickened up and looked much better.

The colour is divine though, soft and light. I'm thinking of trying out some different nail art techniques and i think this would look great with something added to it (possibly black polka dots?) The range of nail polish is 'Lasting Fix' and it claims to last 5 days chip free ... we shall see!

17 High Gloss Nail Polish - Sphinx

This nail polish went on better than the one above, it was thicker and didnt slide around too much. The colour however wasnt what i was expecting. The swatch above shows it being a light golden colour which is how it appeared on my toes, the bottle shows the colour to be a nice rich gold/bronze which is really what i was after!
The coverage is great and i would definately buy another from the High Gloss range.

Do any of you use the Boots 17 range? What nail polishes can you recommend?

  1. Ooh this is a pretty colour, shame about the consistency of it. I've not tried any of the 17 nail polishes but they always look real pretty! x
