NOTD: Boots 17 fast finish nail polish in ‘Purple Jewel’

This is my NOTD with Boots 17 in ‘Purple Jewel’. Love this colour, but hated the application! The formula was ok but the brush was terrible – the bristles were all wonky and sticking out making it almost impossible to apply neatly!

No flash, artificial light

With flash.

It was also hard to get the right amount of product on the brush without it going all streaky. This is two coats which had to be applied quite heavily due to the brush problems. I’m going to put this down to a one off fault though as other bottles of this polish have been really good.

PR sample.

    lovely colour, looks like it would be perfect for a night out. I haven’t tried this brand but I don’t think I’ll be put off, it sounds like the quality is usually good. x

    It’s always so annoying when you get a bad brush, very pretty colour though! 🙂
