Advantages: Lasts well, lovely rich colour
It is quite ironic that for my birthday this year, I received several nail varnishes when in fact this is the year that I have had the least time to look after my nails as I am usually running around after my little girl. However, I was fortunate enough to receive this Barbara Daly Nail Varnish, whose range is available to purchase online at Tesco direct, as opposed to the stores, where this range appears to have disappeared. In fact, years ago I used to purchase quite a few things from the Barbara Daly range until it seemed to disappear and I just assumed the range had been got rid of. It was only when I received this gift, I realised Barbara Daly was still creating make up for Tesco. This 11ml bottle of nail varnish, costs £4.50, which is average priced.
Barbara Daly has created a range of nail varnish colours, but I was given this Purple Velvet, which I was pleased with, as purple is a colour I use a lot of, particularly on my toes. Although I don;t have a lot of time to paint my fingernails, when the weather is good, and I get my sandals on, I always paint my toenails, but that always seems to take less time and is easier. So, after my birthday, when the weather was warm for a change, I had my sandals on everyday, and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to test this nail varnish.
Applying the varnish was easy, and the consistency of the varnish helped a lot. It spread well over the nail and even after one coat, the finish looked sleek and smooth, no bumps and the nail was well covered. I was impressed with how quickly this varnish dried, as it doesn't claim to be superfast in terms of drying. Since it was toenails, I didn't bother applying a second coat on my toenail, although I always would on my fingernails, though it does state that this product only requires one coat. The colour was warm and glossy and looked lovely on my toes with my sandals.
I had my sandals on for the duration of the week that I first applied this varnish, and by day four it was still looking as good as the day it had been applied. Now, toenails don't chip like fingernails, but I was still pleased with how well they looked. Even after another couple of days the nails were looking good, but fading slightly and coming away a little more at the nail, but I didn't need to repaint, and just gave a little touch up, as I didn't have time to remove the varnish and start again.
All in all, I was very happy with this product. THe varnish lasted very well and the colour looked lovely on my toes. I was more impressed with this varnish that some of the highstreet brands that make big claims! A great nail varnish that lasts better than some of the others!
Summary: A nice rich colour that lasts
