The gorgeous weather in South Wales last week had me craving bright and happy colours, especially on my nails.
I am not a fan of No7 at all, I'll be honest - I've had horrendous results with their skincare and the make up just doesn't appeal. However, their Spring 2012 display caught my eye recently on a trip Boots. I had a quick glance and really liked the look of the bright pink/coral nail polish with the adorable name 'Cheeky Chops'.
I had accumulated a £5 off No7 voucher which meant this cost just £2 - bargain.
As gorgeous as this colour is, I don't really like the formula. It was not the easiest polish to apply and went on very streaky. Whilst the polish is nice and opaque, each coat streaked so I ended up applying 3 rather thick coats and then patching up th streaks.
I noticed that the polish was starting to appear a bit gloopy as I was applying it too, so I'm not sure how long the bottle itself will last.
With a basecoat of Orly Bonder, three thick coats of Cheeky Chops and a top coat of INM Out The Door, this polish lasted just a mere 12 hours before starting to peel off in the shower...this has never happened before with other polishes and it's not the fault of the base or top coat which are tried and tested favourites of mine, so I can only blame this polish - or rather the fact that there was just so much of it on my nail.
