MUA Nail Polish | Review & Swatches


Hey girlie's!!!

Recently i decided to try the MUA nail polishes for the very first time...yes I'm slightly late on the ole £1 MUA nail polish bandwagon but the Superdrug in my town has always sold out of the pretty colours that I'm after. Ive been waiting patiently and finally got my hands on the shades i was after 'yipee'. 

First nail swatch 1 coat, second nail swatch 2 coats.

Natural Days is a pretty light pastel pink colour, its very girlie and fabulous for either Spring of Summer wear. I used 2 thick coats of this to make it completely opaque as with just the one coat it was a little streaky.

Pistachio Ice Cream is my favourite out of the 3 i picked up, i just adore it. Its a mint pastel green colour which i think is fab for summer. Id never tried a greenish nail polish before but i instantly fell in love with this, even the shade name is adorable. I found 1 coat of this was completely opaque, but i went for 2 coats for extra lasting power. This shade is also a great dupe for Essie's Mint Candy Apple.

Ameretto Crush is more of a everyday shade that you could wear no matter what season we're in so i bought it whilst it was finally in stock. Its a muted dusky rose pink colour which i thought to be quite unusual, i certainly don't own a polish this colour so i thought id give it a whirl. Id definitely say 2 coats will give u maxium colour with this and it leaves quite a nice glossy finish too.


I'm really impressed with all 3 of these little bargains, if i had to round it up id say, they all dried really quick, the formula is quite runny with all so the polish itself applies quite thinish coats of polish which sometimes can be streaky but as soon as you apply the second coat i found all mine to be completely opaque without a streak in sight. The packaging is super cute, i love how all the shades now have names instead of numbers too and the fact they are all £1 each is just brill. 

Have you tried any of these shades?? What did you think??
