MUA Love Hearts Nail Varnish Swatches!

I <3 U

I’ve got to say now, ‘I <3 U’ must just be my new favourite nude nail varnish!  When I saw it I knew that I was going to love it and the colour has not disappointed me – it almost looks like a pale baby pink on my nails and it really suits my pale skin. 
One thing I did not love about this polish was the formula.  I nearly gave up after the second coat when it still looked horrendous and streaky on, but after the third coat then this actually looked okay.  You can tell in the photographs above that it is still a little streaky in some places, but it isn’t that noticeable.  This would be incredible if the formula and texture was better, but for £2 it is a bargain.

U & I
This is actually my first ever yellow nail varnish!  Its a gorgeous shade, almost like a bright pastel yellow and it is very striking when worn.  I’m going to save this for the summer because I suspect it’ll look gorgeous with a tan.  The formula of this polish is a little better but still needed three coats to be perfect. 

What I think – I’ve never tried MUA nail polishes before so I can’t compare the Love Hearts collection to any of their previous polishes, but I think these are gorgeous colours.  I love pastel shades and these are perfect for spring and summer.  At only £2 then these really are a bargain and a great little addiction to any nail varnish addict, but I do wish the formula of I <3 U was a little better!

Have you picked up any of the Love Hearts collection so far?  Have you tried any of MUAs nail polishes – if so, what do you think?

    I love these two colours! I wouldn't have thought MUA polishes would have been good but these look lovely! x

    I have bought one, it's dark blue with some glittery staff. It is quite small, 6.2 ml and doesn't say any name on it, just Shade 1. I think it is just the lead-in collection and cost 1 pound. (I have got it in Cambridge.)I agree with you, the formula is isn't the best, I need 3 coats for the perfect look. Sfter the 3 coats, I think it is beautiful despite the fact I don't use so much dark polishes. Do you have any idea what is this collection?

      Hello! That polish sounds absolutely beautiful – was it from MUA? I think it must be in their permenant collection range. I will have to go and check it out! x

    These are gorgeous shades, but the formula doesnt sound too great! xxx

    'I <3 U' is like the perfect nude! Shame about it being a pain to apply but can't really complain for £2 so will definitely pick it up! xx

    I've tried their pound ones, but they didn't last more than a day 🙁 Love hearts collection colours look very nice, but I just haven't got the time to reapply a nail polish every day.. xx

      I've actually found that the nude one lasted on my nails for about 4 days before chipping which is really impressive, and that was without a topcoat. I probably should have mentioned that in the review, ha! x

    The superdrug store near me doesn't carry MUA nail polishes. No fair! They look lovely. 🙂

    I bought U Rok today. I was going to get I <3 U but changed my mind thinking it would look weird with my skintone. I really want to get the yellow one now. 🙂

    Got U R FAB the other day, found the same thing with the streakiness, but its a lovely purpley-pink 🙂

      Ahhh I want that one! I've been eyeing it up – looks gorgeous!

    The yellow is really nice, but too bad that the formula isn't so good. Cute candy in the picture 🙂

    I really need to buy some of these. The nude looks perfect and I really want to try the blue-ish and liliac colours 🙂
