2True Glossywear Nail Polish
Advantages: The colour range is nice
Disadvantages: It goes on streaky and is certainly not long lasting
Now its summer ( I say summer in the loosest sense!!) I love to have my toenails painted all the time. Feet are generally not the most attractive part of the body and I always think painted toenails make them look so much nicer. I have been trying some of Superdrugs 2True range lately and decided to give their nail polish a try. At just £1.99 I wasn't expecting the best quality but going by the other things in this range that I had tried I was pretty confident it wouldn't be too bad.
The colour I bought was called Shade 8 and is a nice mid pink. The bottle is quite stumpy and round and had a black lid with a silver band around it. It has the 2true logo on the front along with the words glossy wear nail polish and the shade, apart from the ingredients on the back that's it for the bottle.
The brush is attached to the inside of the lid, as you would expect, and because of the stumpy bottle design is quite short.
I used this polish for the first time on my toes. I applied the first coat and immediately noticed that any pearl effect I saw when the polish was in the bottle disappears as soon as the varnish hits the nail. The second thing was that this polish is so thin and watery it goes on terribly streaky. I continued to paint all my toenails and felt sure that a second coat would sort this out. After all on the Superdrug website it states " Simply apply two coats of your favourite nail colour for maximum effect and prolonged wear".
With this in mind I applied the 2nd coat. This made barely any difference, the varnish still looked very streaky and watery. I applied a third coat and although still quite blotchy my nails did look slightly better.
To be honest I just didn't have the time or inclination to do a forth coat so I left them. If it had been my finger nails I couldn't have got away with it but as it was my feet and no one was going to be looking too closely I left them but I was very disappointed with the nail varnish. It looked blotchy and streaky.
Its described as glosswear and actually it has a very high shine finish so this part is true, however stating 2 coats will give maximum effect is a load of rubbish!
I wore the varnish for 24 hours and it was already starting to chip, maybe this is what Superdrug calls "prolonged wear!" So now the varnish looked chipped as well as blotchy. I definitely wont be buying this again which is a shame because they actually do some really nice colours in the range. OK I accept that it was cheaper than other brands and I wasn't expecting the best quality but going on other products in this range I was expecting something a bit better.
I wouldn't recommend this one at all.
Summary: I wont use this again
