MUA Nail Polish

L has previously reviewed and shown you some products from the MUA range at Superdrug which you can catch-up here. Now for a £1 I had wanted to get a couple of the nail varnishes to try but only ended up with these 4 first. I've had them for a while really, but thought I would show you some swatches now as I think these would be good for A/W and the Christmas season.

The four I have got are shade 1 which is dark navy, shade 2 black, shade 13 green, and shade 8 which is red. I have to say the black and navy are my favourite of the four colours. They are colours I am more likely to wear!

I have tried to show you swatches above which were just taken on my iPhone with and without the flash. The black, navy and red were 3 coats to get a nice even colour but the green took 4 coats and I am still not really happy with it. It still doesn't seem opaque enough and out of the four this is a bit runny. These are easy too apply, as the lid is easy to hold and the brush is a good size.

The Black (Shade 2) and the Red (Shade 8) have both got a great finish and after 3 coats looked really great with a lovely opaque finish. The Navy (Shade 1) is such an amazing shade, it is really dark but has tiny blue glitter so it come out with a lovely sparkly finish. The green has a metallic finish but it is very watery and goes on very thin. I probably won't use it again as it is paler then I was hoping for.

For a £1 I think these are value for money, even though the bottle is small. I'm now looking to pick up some of the brighter and pastel shades for spring! I also think that the Nail polish and the Eyeshadow's are the best part of this range and are worth the £1. I am not particularly a fan of the lipsticks but L does have some which she likes.

You can check out the rest of the MUA range here on the Superdug website.

Have you tried any of the range? what are your thoughts?

Bit late to the post on this lot. But I don't think you can get these colours anymore. If anyone from MUA reads this post. PLEASE PLEASE bring them back!
