Today I am bringing you a whopping 12 swatches of the new No7 nail polishes that have recently launched! In all of the swatches below I used either two or three coats.
Pinky Pure (160) – a pale, almost white, baby pink. I think this would look beautiful with tanned skin or for a colourful twist on a French manicure. Can be a bit streaky but should be fine with four coats.
Disco Nights (370) – when I first saw this in the bottle I was like ‘ew!’, but it looks absolutely stunning on the nails, as you can see in the swatches above. This really does glisten in the sunlight.
Hot To Trot – This is one of my favourites, a lovely copper gold. This is the shade that Nail Artist to the stars Jamie Nunn used to create the Antique Marble Effect (seen here), by painting the polish on a sponge and then lightly pressing the sponge onto the nail over another colour!
Crave Me – Both me and Zoe (from The London Lipgloss) agree that this is the most perfect red for a nail polish!
Perky (260) – The colour in the bottle of this is BEAUTIFUL, but on the nails it is a disaster! The formula is so watery and after three coats you can still see the actual whites of my nails. Maybe this would look better painted over a white nail polish?
What I think – I love all of these polishes (with the exception of Perky!) because the formulas are great; they are all extremely pigmented and sit really well on the nail. For most of the swatches above I only used two coats which is impressive in my opinion. Each of the polishes also have a new brush applicator which I prefer to the old ones – they are wider so you can almost coat the whole nail in one sweep. I’m also impressed with the colours, I have never seen a polish like Dollar or Mojo before. These retail in Boots stores at around £6-7 which I personally think is pricey for a nail varnish, but with Boots vouchers they are much cheaper and with the new formula and brush I guess its worth it!
Do you have any of these new shades? What’s your favourite out of the bunch?
