Primark Nail Polish- Is it really that good?

Being a first year student I'm starting to realise the value of money, sort of, well not at all to be honest. After freshers week and going on the odd shopping spree or ten I am now ridiculously poor. So now I realise when my mum said I should budget I should of maybe listened to her.

Like anyone else I love having my nails done whether they're simply painted or done using acrylics- I hate plain nails they bore me so much. I wanted something different on my nails this time I was bored of the one dimensional colours I always have, I wanted something more dimensional. Seeing as I'm low in funds I decided to have a browse in Primark for some- stereotypically Primark is seen as a cheap place to shop however you can't always guarantee the quality.

I was a bit sceptical at buying the nail polish at first as I thought it would be one of those cheap nail vanishes that would be really runny or just cheap off easily. Although I was far from wrong....

I decided on the colours "Bright Pop" and "Fallen Angel". The black nail polish contained glitter and after two coats managed to give me this night time effect, whereas the coloured glitter helped add a sense of depth and colour to my nails. I also added a top coat of nail polish to ensure it was secure.

Surprisingly the nail vanish stayed on for 2 weeks! Yes there were a few chips where I shut my finger in my wardrobe or drawers (which is a regular occurrence for me) but that was it! I would definitely recommend using these nail vanishes!

Let me know what you think :)
