Inexpensive Beauty Find: M&S Limited Collection Nail Polish in Leaf

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 30 - 2012

Going a bit ga-ga in the search for a lovely green polish to see you through the drearier months?

Green isn’t a colour you’d usually associate with the final weeks of Summer is it?  We’re used to seeing the shade fill Spring collections and lead the way when it comes to the pastel trends but put that thinking aside because I’ve found a rather lovely green that will work beautifully for the more subdued months ahead…

Introducing, Marks & Spencer Limited Collection Polish in Leaf.  A dusty green creme that will set you back just £3.50 for an 8ml bottle.

Two coats will achieve opacity from a formula that doesn’t need chasing around the nail to get it to lie smoothly.  For the shiniest of finishes, you’ll need a top coat but don’t let that put you off because this mini-marvel packs a punch when it comes to pigmentation.

Marks & Spencer Limited Collection Polish in Leaf is priced at £3.50 and available both instore and online at

Have you tried any M&S polishes since they revamped the line?  How do you find them?

    Have wanted to try out the limited collection nail polish since they came out & leaf was on the top of the list. Caved and went to purchase last week and found it as part of a mini set of 3 for £6

    Obviously these are now mine :-)

    I’m not a huge fan of greens and blues on my nails (unless we’re talking minty pastels!) but lately I’ve been loving L’Oreal Color Riche le Vernis in Blue Reef. This looks lovely on your hands!
