Miss Beauty Haul

While browsing the aisles in Wilkinsons my bf came across these Miss Beauty nail polishes. They were priced at only £1 a bottle so he encouraged me to pick out some colours I would like to share with all of you! (isn't that nice of  him).

Miss Beauty is a UK brand made by Pascalle LTD who formed back in 2004 and are based in Stoke on Trent. The company produces everything from skin care, foundations and concealers, to powder and creme eye shadows, eye liners and of corse nail laquers and treatments.  Their clients over the years have included Molton Brown, M&S, Bodyshop, l'occitane, UK supermarkets Tesco, Asda and Sainsburys and COTY (the new owners of OPI).

Thats quite a resume for a £1 polish!

Lets see if their "right first time" mentality has paid off.

I picked up three colours from the range, no.11 Lagoon, no.12 Lilac and no.16 Ocean

Ocean is dusty muted teal/aqua colour, darker and more muted than OPI Mermaids Tears, very similar to the base colour of No7 So Neat, but missing the gorgeous shimmer.

Application was a little tricky, the first coat applied streaky, but the pigmentation was good. In the end two coats was enough and is what you see here.

My camera is picking the colour up to be much more of a vibrant green than what it is :(

Drying time was quite speedy, touch dry in around 3-5 minutes.

Lagoon is a beautiful cobalt blue colour with golden shimmer. Application was easier than Ocean, less streaks. I used three coats here.

Lilac is the sheerest of the bunch, but still a gorgeous colour. More of a magenta than a lilac in my opinion but lets not pick hairs. This is four coats.
