Advantages: Great to work with, worth the money
Disadvantages: Not sure it strengthens my nails (but it doesn't hurt them either!)
I have a huge collection of No7 Nail polishes in my collection thanks in the main to Boots who quite often run promotions and special offers on them. I am now a huge fan of the range due to the general quality of them and the colour range offered.
One of the products I use the most often though is this one and I have owned this for absolutely ages now. I always use a base coat to protect my nail before I apply nail polish to help give a smooth look, to stop staining and to even help colour stay on longer. As a beauty therapist I have seen people with stained nails that are horrid and I don't ever want my nails to look like that I can tell you!
What you basically get for £5.50 is a 10ml glass jar which is see through with a twist on/off cap to the top of it which holds the brush you apply the liquid with. On the front of it we are simply told what it is and who it is by, the size is stated on the back as are the contact details for Boots. Its a simple and good quality looking product this one.
Well it is a clear nail product that you apply onto clear nails. I have worn this on its own or painted over the top of it with my chosen colour because it is clear it is very easy to apply. It smells like normal polish does, its runny and rather sticky, again like most nail polishes are really and it dries to a gentle but natural shine in about two minutes, leaving the nail looking clean and smooth, freshened up and ready to coat however many coats of nail polishes over the top you want to! This is meant to strengthen the nails and I can't really say alot about that as I'm not really sure if its helped mine or not really to be fair!
All In All:
This creates a smooth nail to polish over and work with and I find that this even protects my nail polishes from staining my nails even when wearing very, very dark colours and for days at a time! It gives me a smooth base to work with and is fuss free to apply, its easy enough to remove with nail polish remover of course being clear and like I have stated earlier I have worn this on my nails just to feel something are on them and they've looked really clean and healthy!
A bottle of this has lasted me absolutely ages and for me this is a must have product that is worth every penny that it costs!
