MUA Nail Varnish
Advantages: cheap, nice shades
Disadvantages: the brush can sometimes not be of great quality
Superdrug sell some great products with the brand name of MUA. (Short for makeup academy)
I was after some cheap nail polish to add to my collection and decided to purchase some colours I liked from the mua section. Their nail polish comes at a great price of only £1, which is a lot cheaper than some other brands.
It comes in quite a smaller bottle compared to other nail varnishes as it is only 6.2ml rather than the standard 10ml ones but I guess this is reflected in the price difference. You still get quite a lot of use out of it though which makes it worth buying.
The nail polish bottle is a straight bottle and the lid is of the same shape. On opening the nail varnish the brush is also slightly smaller than usual however it fits nicely in the bottle and is easily applied. The bottle is simple in design and does not state much appart from ingredients (which I don't think anyone really reads) and that it is flammable. One of the nail polishes that I have is shade 1 - which is a really nice blue colour that I like.
However with the price of this nail polish comes a flaw. I have bought a few of these nail polishes now and have found some of the brushes to not be of great quality, as some have come out the bottle and rather than being straight have been rather shabby and hard to apply neatly with. I have had to return some of these in store as I bought them online and found it rather annoying not to be satisfied with the nail polish. But I do think I was probably just unlucky with some of the ones I received as I doubt they would be so bad regularly.
I still think it is a good product, the nail polish is easily applied and lasts a few days without chipping. It is not a quick dry nail polish though and so can take longer to dry but the overall results still look good.
It would be an ideal buy for those with young girls who are starting to like nail polish and generally is a nice little buy for when you want to do your nails. I would still purchase the mua nail polish range again, but I still favour other nail polish brands instead due to the quality of the product at times and so do not buy them all the time.
I give the product 3/5 stars.. it's sold at a good price and has nice shades, but I found it to be of average quality.
Thanks for reading :)

Summary: good nail polish but there are better brands
