No7 New Nail Polish Swatches!

Today I am bringing you a whopping 12 swatches of the new No7 nail polishes that have recently launched!  In all of the swatches below I used either two or three coats.

 1

3
Lucky Lilac (50) – how beautiful is this!  The formula of this polish is perfect, I think I only used two coats above.  A gorgeous pale lilac.

2
Pinky Pure (160) - a pale, almost white, baby pink.  I think this would look beautiful with tanned skin or for a colourful twist on a French manicure.  Can be a bit streaky but should be fine with four coats.

4
Disco Nights (370) – when I first saw this in the bottle I was like ‘ew!’, but it looks absolutely stunning on the nails, as you can see in the swatches above.  This really does glisten in the sunlight.

5
Hot To Trot – This is one of my favourites, a lovely copper gold.  This is the shade that Nail Artist to the stars Jamie Nunn used to create the Antique Marble Effect (seen here), by painting the polish on a sponge and then lightly pressing the sponge onto the nail over another colour!

6 
Cheeky Chops (240) – another of my favourites!  Perfect for spring and summer, a beautiful pink with a hint of peach.

7 
Mojo (230) – This nail polish impressed me; great formula, lovely orange/red colour with a noticeable gold shimmer in the light, very pretty.

8
Crave Me – Both me and Zoe (from The London Lipgloss) agree that this is the most perfect red for a nail polish!

9
Perky (260) – The colour in the bottle of this is BEAUTIFUL, but on the nails it is a disaster!  The formula is so watery and after three coats you can still see the actual whites of my nails.  Maybe this would look better painted over a white nail polish?

10
Jammy (270) – I think this will be a hit in Boots stores, Jammy is a lovely hot pink with a pink shimmery opal effect in the light. 

11
Devils Delight (190) – a deep red, very sophisticated and mysterious.

13
Dollar (340) – Another of my favourite, how bloody amazing is this!  Reminds me of mermaids and stormy seas.

12
Stand Back (300) – this has a great formula and is very pigmented, the colour is perfect for toes!

What I think – I love all of these polishes (with the exception of Perky!) because the formulas are great; they are all extremely pigmented and sit really well on the nail.  For most of the swatches above I only used two coats which is impressive in my opinion.  Each of the polishes also have a new brush applicator which I prefer to the old ones – they are wider so you can almost coat the whole nail in one sweep.  I’m also impressed with the colours, I have never seen a polish like Dollar or Mojo before.  These retail in Boots stores at around £6-7 which I personally think is pricey for a nail varnish, but with Boots vouchers they are much cheaper and with the new formula and brush I guess its worth it!

Do you have any of these new shades?  What’s your favourite out of the bunch?

  4. I haven't tried the new colours but I have a couple of older colours, I love how they apply and how they dry etc but I find they chip quite easily which is a shame. Love these colours tho!

  7. the lilac is definitely my favourite, it's so feminine and pretty! the blues look lovely on your nails too, but whenever i wear that shade on my fingertips, it doesnt get a very good reception from the boys! They seem to only like reds, pinks and french manicure!

  12. Dear Katie,

    (sorry for my English, I am French)
    First of all, I love your blog, I love to read it and the pictures are really beautiful.
    May I ask you to tell us the composition of each of the products you show ? As you know, some are responsible for diseases such as cancers.
    I think that women should work together so that cosmetics companies only sell safe products to us.

    Thank you a lot,
