Mid-Week Treat: £1 Pastel Blue Nail Varnish

Pastel Blue Nail Varnish Wilko's Review

I'm always a bit wary when buying very cheap nail varnishes. The nail varnishes I normally buy are made by well established brands, albeit it not the most expensive ones. Sometimes though, if I see a real bargain in a great colour, I'll pick it up anyway, thinking that at the very least I could use it to do some nail art. So, when I found this gorgeous pastel blue nail varnish for a mere £1, I figured it was at least worth a try.

This beaut is from the 'Miss Beauty' range at Wilko's, and is is shade no. 31, 'Pastel Green'. In my eyes, it definitely looks more like a very subtle pastel blue, which is absolutely fine by me. Blue is such a wardrobe staple for me, so this varnish fits in nicely with most of my outfits. It also looks especially good when worn with denim of any kind. It's also a very summery shade, and makes me think of cloudless skies whenever I look at my nails.

I've had a run in with this brand before, and I have to say my previous experience wasn't great. The past colour I chose was a dark metallic navy blue, which unfortunately chipped very easily - it didn't last one day before chipping. However, this shade seems to be holding up a bit longer, and after wearing it for a couple of days (without a topcoat) I have noticed only minor chipping. Hopefully I can make it last a good while if I pair it with a decent topcoat.

If I've got the patience, I'll hopefully be using this to create some lovely floral patterns on my nails. But in the real world, I know that my nail painting skills aren't that good... Maybe an accent nail is the best way to go?

Any cheap nail varnishes that you would recommend?
