6 No7 Nail Varnish Swatches

I collected this bunch of nail varnishes when Boots where doing their ‘£5 off No7’ offers.  Normally I would never buy No7’s range as it doesn’t particularly appeal to me but I’m glad I picked these up.

Pink Grapefruit 80

A saucy sexy muted hot pink.  Very wearable and perfect for summer.  Used two coats in swatches above.

Hot Pink 40

2

A gorgeous girly Barbie pink.  Two coats.

Coral Kiss 39

These swatches were just after ONE coat! Can you believe it! This is my favourite red nail polish in my collection, the perfect post-box red.

Highland Mist 55

4

I don’t know how to describe this shade! I guess its a light brown with a hint of peach. Two coats.

Dreamy 33

I’ve never worn this shade out, but only because it reminds me of something Grandma’s would wear on their toes.  But it is a pretty colour, it sparkles and shimmers in the light. Two coats.

Totally Teal 115

Unique teal colour, I find this is the most streaky and un-even to apply but the colour is stunning and quite different.  I’d only wear this if I was matching it with shoes/jewellery on a particular day.

What I think -

I am always pleasantly surprised when I use these polishes as they are very pigmented and apply really well.  You need two coats max for a gorgeously even manicure with great shine.  They are all very shiny which I love because they look expensive on the nail and they don’t take too long to dry – especially the two Speed Dry ones I have.

I think each polish costs £6-7 which I personally think is quite expensive when you can get great shades at Barry M for £4, BUT after trying them out, I think the extra pennies do make a difference, in terms of amount of product in each bottle and the amount of pigmentation and shine you get with each coat!

I’m hoping Boots do another one of these offers soon that I can pick some more up!

Do you have any of these shades? Which is your favourite?

  1. All these colours look great! I agree though, I'd only pick them up when Boots have their £5 off offer on. I've used it to buy a base coat before, but nothing else.. yet! :) x

  2. That really IS the perfect red :) If Boots still do those £5 vouchers, I'd definitely pick that up since I'm needing a replacement post-box red! xxx

  4. The only one of these I've got is Highland Mist, but Pink Grapefruit looks fab. Roll on the next £5 off vouchers!

  6. The No7 colors are limited in the States- or at least where I live. But I do have a neutral pink and their Base/Top Coat- totally amazing, I bought a back-up right away. Nice swatches.
