NOTD: Primark Beauty Babes Nail Polish

As I was reaching the till to pay for my Primark goodies last weekend, I spotted this little nail polish set...


Their product placement ploy worked, and I bought it on impulse (it was only £2 after all!) The packaging was cute, with a built in mirror, but the reason for buying was the lovely array of colours in the set. The colour selection was gorgeous, so girly and pretty, with all the pastel shades I’m loving at the moment.


I like the names of the polishes, they seemed very suited to the colours. The set included a nude, a bright pink, a baby pink and a lilac in sweet little 7ml bottles...


I didn’t have high hopes for these polishes as they were so cheap, and my suspicions were confirmed when I tried out the lilac polish. The formulation was rather thin and sheer and so I needed to apply 3 coats to get a good colour payoff. However, once the colour was on and I’d managed to keep streaks to a minimum, I adored how the polish looked and the lovely colour. The polish also lasted almost a week without any chipping which I was very impressed with.


I then tried each of the other colours on a single nail. This was when I discovered it was only the lilac and baby pink which were sheer and needed more coats to show the true colour. The formulation of the nude and bright pink was a lot easier to work with and I only needed 2 coats to get an even colour.

Left to Right: Blush, Lolita, Sorbet and Bloom

Overall I thought these polishes were good quality for the small price. This a lovely little bargain set to buy if you'd like to get an idea of whether you like the pastel polish trend.
