Boots 17 Nail varnishes!

I went on a little shopping trip to Bluewater (a shopping mall in Kent) last week as I wanted to pop into MAC to get my Liberty of London fix!  But I stopped off in Boots on the way and picked up two cute 17 nail polishes!

We have – Mint Choc Chip

A lovely milky minty green/blue varnish, I adore this colour and I think its very apt for spring/summer. 

And Orange Soda –

I wanted a coral varnish and I picked this polish up aswell.  It turns out its more orange than coral, but in the flesh its much a paler milkier colour than in these images.

Both of the polishes are VERY pigmented and apply really smoothly.  All the images here were wearing just two coats.  The varnish can apply quite streaky sometimes on the first coat, but the second coat should sort it out straight away.  What I love about this brand of varnish is how quickly it dries.  You’d think that a creamy varnish would take ages to dry (like the Barry M ones) but this dries very quickly, within two minutes.  These polishes had the sticker on ‘just in’, and came out with the ‘Candy Collection’’ range, and which also includes a cute lilac polish, as well as a milky yellow and candy floss pink.  I applied the orange one on Friday, and spent the whole weekend unpacking boxes in work so the ends chipped quickly which was expected, but other than that they lasted pretty well. 

I’m quite impressed with these polishes and will definitely pick more up (after my make-up shopping ban! not sure when it’ll end!).  They are also great value – under £3 a polish.

Has any one else tried out these new candy shades? What do you think!? XX
