Primark PS… Quick Dry Nail Polish review

I was walking through the Sheffield Primark the other day and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw how big the beauty section was! Having been used to the much smaller branch in Barnsley that never seems to have exactly what I need, I was immediately excited to check out the selection!

Being very tight on time, I quickly honed in on the nail polish section and picked up four gorgeous colours. At 60p each, I wasn’t so sure they’d be much good, Sure, they were smaller than a normal nail polish, but I really couldn’t argue with 60p per colour!

I picked up the colours Nude, Pink Party, Mushroom and Rainbow – a good selection of solid colours and glitters. If you know me in real life, you’ll know that anything that glitters immediately catches my attention and I just have to have it! My nickname was always magpie when I was younger because I used to collect anything shiny and keep it stored away in my little box in my room!

The colour that I decided to try out was Nude. It looks a little pinker in the bottle than it actually does on the nails, but I’m not mad about it. I slicked the first coat on and was pleased to see that the coverage was pretty good. I’d definitely need a second if I wasn’t going to wear a nail topper, but I think that’s pretty standard anyway. The nail polish claims to dry in 60 seconds and for once, a product wasn’t telling me porkies! Even in my unbelievably humid office, my nails were touch dry within 60 seconds so I went on and added a second coat that really smoothed out any ‘wishy washy’ areas and left me with a lovely, subtle colour.

Normally, nail polishes chip on my nails within a day which is absolutely soul destroying. I was pleased to see that I actually 2-3 days out of this polish without the need for retouching! I was really impressed!

I have tried the Pink Party over the top of the Nude but sadly that chipped for me within a day which made me feel so sad! I’m not going to give up on it though because it’s a beautiful shade and looks exactly an offering from Shellac. I found this out when a client visited me with identical looking nail polish and asked me if it was Shellac like hers!

I’m really looking forward to trying the other colours out soon. I’m also looking forward to visiting that beauty section once again when I have a little more time. Purely for research reasons, of course…
