W7 Metallic Mars NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 13 - 2011

I love a good bargain and this W7 polish, purchased for the princely sum of £1.95 is a very good cheapie indeed!  Sure, it’s sheer (4 coats minimum) and it stinks so badly that I was worried my husband would phone NHS Direct for advice on solvent abuse.  But look, for less than £2 – it’s a pretty, pretty subtle duochrome.

Wear was great, I often find this with sheerer polishes… perhaps a side effect of those multiple thin coats?  Either way, I have no complaints on chipping or any of that nonsense.

I purchased W7 Metallic Mars online from www.nailpolishdirect.co.uk, priced at £1.95 – I believe that it’s a discontinued shade so don’t hang around if you fancy adding it to your collection!

    Pretty, I often wondered what these polishes were like. I don’t think I have the patience for 4 coats though. x

    I have Metallic Neptune, a blue/green shade. Took 2 coats. It’s a wonderful colour.

      I have Venus, Jupiter and Mercury, they are all awesome! And stinky, they gave me headache on painting.
      They can also be found in Savers for £1.99 each

  3. Lovely and sheerer polishes dry so much quicker too. I have Metallic saturn a beautiful green colour. Actually, forgot I had it till saw this post!!

  5. I dont really like W7 but these colours are much better than their neon range.

    Hurray – Metallic Mars – Lovely colour but as you said the duochrome effect is very understated. Very nice though
