Shade 1…. catchy…
Naming them must have ran the risk of breaking the budget for this new £1 line of makeup from Superdrug
Ok, enough sarcasm…
Shade 1 is a blackened blue. The best way to describe it is opalescent… a darker-than-navy base with royal blue glitter particles. The glitter isn’t chunky and a top coat isn’t necessary to smooth the finish. I had to go and stand in direct sunlight to capture the sparkles for the photo which is why you can see my conservatory roof reflected in my tips!
For a £1 polish it’s a good looking finish. Formula isn’t the best… it dragged at the cuticles and if I look carefully there’s still a couple of streaks visible after two coats. However, it’s not horribly gloopy or difficult to actually paint with which is an irritation I often experience with high street polishes. Yes, I’m a nail polish snob I know (bar Asda!) *hangs head*
Ohh that’s a good comparison actually…. I’ve tried two from the MUA line so far and quality isn’t as good as the George formula. The MUA polishes that I’ve tried have a denser, thicker formula, but they are fairly quick-drying.
Tip wear is a little worse than average, not by too much though and I haven’t experienced any chipping after 2 days, so I’m very pleased with that.
I think I’ve covered most things… for a £1, you know you’re not gonna get OPI quality… but I think this is a stonking shade and if you like your blues, definitely check it out next time you’re passing Superdrug! Alternatively, the entire range is now available to purchase from the website.
