Seventeen Polka Dots Nail Effects Blue Mix

This is from the new set of Seventeen polishes from Boots. I put it over OPI Sorry I'm Fizzy Today. :-)



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes for a coat). It dries kind of matte like - which surprised me but I think it's pretty cool :-) I got really good coverage for 1 coat and minimal dabbing was required. I found it best to dip the lid in and out a few time before painting the nails - this way I got lots of dots on the brush. It's a good match for the pink :-). Swatched so no lasting time.

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10

Lasted well = N/A as swatched
Coats = 1
Finish = semi-matte glittery
Removal = easy used foil method
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Boots instore 3 for 2 offer

My Personal Rating = 7.5/10 :-)

    1. Yeah it is! The brand is sold in a health & beauty shop called Boots and this is one of their lines. It used to be called "17" but they renamed it to "Seventeen" not that long ago! :-)
