Bargain summer nail varnish; No7 Spring Meadow

Oh the clearance stand at boots, home to so many unloved and forgotten beauty items. This time, however, my eye was caught by this beautiful  Tiffany blue-ish shade from No7.  A group of this 'spring meadow'shade were priced at £3 each, which is half of their usual price. I thought this was the perfect summer colour so happily picked it up.

Now, I do still think this is a gorgeous colour but I can see why it was reduced, the formula is just so thin! I had to apply 3-4 coats until I was happy. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just means this wouldn't be a shade you would reach for if you wanted a speedy mani. I used a topcoat and have slight chip wear after a couple of days, believe it or not that is actually pretty rare on my nails so I guess the building of layers pays off. I am glad that I got this shade as I do think it is divine, and I don't mind a long winded mani, I just watch a YT video in between each coat!

Would you wear this colour, or be put off by the formula?


  1. Its a shame that its quite thin as the colour looks really nice. Its not great when you need to add loads of coats to get the right finish though. x
