MUA Nail Polish
I've been trying a few nail polishes from two of MUA's ranges, the normal £1 range and also their Love Hearts range.
From their £1 range I've been trying and absolutely loving shade 1. It's a bluey-purpley-black with little tiny bits of glitter which make it lovely and shimmery. If this shade was to have a name rather than a number its perfect name would be starry night as it literally just reminds me of space and galaxies and things like that! It took a couple of coats to be opaque but I just love the effect it gives. I wore this with an O.P.I. topcoat and it lasted a good few days without chipping before I had to take it off for work. I haven't actually worn shade 'All Nude' as it is just a plain white polish which isn't something I would usually want to wear, but there have been a few times where I've wished I had a white polish so for £1 I thought I'd pick this up just so I have it. This also took 2/3 coats to be opaque but for a white polish that's what I'd expect. Both shades definitely worth their £1 price tag!
MUA's Love Hearts range is a collection of nail polishes and also lip balms, consisting of very girly colours ranging from pastels to brights. Shade 'U ROK' is a really nice pastel purple colour and 'U R FAB' is my favourite - I'd say it was a deep berry pink which I just think is gorgeous and really stands out. 'U ROK' took two coats for an opaque coverage and 'U R FAB' was fine with one coat but I applied two just out of habit if anything! Again I wore both of these with an O.P.I. topcoat and they both lasted for days without chipping. I was quite disappointed with the brushes on these, I don't know if I just got some dud bottles but the brushes were both really 'sticky-outy' and not sleek at all. One of them looked as if it had been put into the bottle awkwardly and so a part of the brush kind of sticks out where its moulded into that position. However they were still usable and for their £2.00 price tag it doesn't spoil it too much - it was just a little annoying.
