Advantages: good variety of colours, dries quickly, good value when on offer
I am quite a big fan of the Boots No7 range of cosmetics and over time I have tried quite a few of their products. One product that I do really like from the No7 range is the Speed Dry nail varnish which comes in a variety of different colours.
The No7 speed dry nail varnish comes in a 10ml bottle which is currently priced at £7.00 from Boots stores or online at www.boots.com. If any of you are regular shoppers at boots you will be aware that they often give out £5 off vouchers for No7 products when you spend £5 on items in store. This brings the cost of the nail varnish down to just £2.00 which I think is a great bargain and this is how I normally purchase these nail varnishes.
The nail varnish comes in a chunky clear glass bottle which enables you to see the exact colour of the nail varnish inside. My last purchase was of the hot pink (40) shade which is very vibrant and looks lovely on my dressing table. The glass bottle has a sliver screw on lid which has the brush attached to it on the inside. There is very basic information on the bottle with it only containing the name, colour, company contact details and that the varnish is flammable. To be fair the bottle is very small so there is not really room for any further information and really how to use nail varnish is pretty self-explanatory.
I personally find this nail varnish really easy to apply, the lid to which the brush is attached is quite big and slightly curved which makes it very easy to grip. The brush is made of quite fine black bristles and the varnish coats the brush well to make it easy to apply to my nails. The varnish is of a great consistency and neither too runny or too thick and gloopy which I have found with many nail varnishes in the past. This varnish glides onto my nails smoothly and easily giving a nice even, glossy finish. I always use two coats of the varnish to give a good coverage to prevent my nails from being seen underneath. The polish certainly does dry faster than some other that I have tried which claim to have fast drying times and I am able to get on with tasks after a few minutes rather than sitting scared to touch anything in case the varnish smudges.
As far as lastability goes than I also have been impressed by the results of this nail varnish. I have fairly long nails and spend a lot of time cleaning, typing and using my hands in general all day but if I apply two coats of the varnish then I tend to get two days wear before I begin to notice little chips usually on the ends of my nails, with me normally reapplying after three days.
Personally I think this is a great nail varnish from No7 it is quick and easy to use, dries quickly, fairly long lasting and great value if purchased with a No7 £5 voucher.
Summary: a great speedy little nail varnish for perfect nails
