Review: Topshop Nails - Bad Habit

I absolutely adore red nails, there's something so classic and timeless about them and they go with EVERYTHING.
So when my favourite Bourjois 1 Seconde nail enamel in the deepest, richest shade of red started to dry up, I was devastated (exaggeration alert - I was a bit upset for about five minutes). After scouring Boots' up and down the country I realised that the unknown shade (why don't Bourjois print shades on their bottles?!) was probably discontinued and I'd just have to get over it.
That was until Monday when I received this lovely Topshop number from my boyfriend!
I've been wearing falsies from Primark (which I cannot reccomend highly enough) so when they started to chip away and look a bit dull I decided to paint them to try and get another few days wear out of them, and here is the result:

Pretty good, huh?
I really like Topshop nail polishes - they have a great consistency which means they don't run off the nail but they settle easily to avoid lumps and streaks. They're also ridiculously shiney so I don't have to apply a topcoat, and nicely pigmented - I got the above result in two coats.
The colour is almost exactly the same as my coveted Bourjois enamel so I don't feel quite so bad about throwing it away now, and I think they retail at around £5 which is an absolute bargain.

  1. im in love with this nail colour! i got a similar one as a free bee from a mag.. amazing!

  2. Pretty blog! This nail polish is gorgeous :) how much are the Primark falsies?

    1. Thankyou! They're only £1 for 24 nails, total bargain! The glue you get with them isn't great which is their only downfall, but I'd highly recommend them, if you can get hold of some stock up! They sell out really quickly apparently x

  3. Also love a classic red nail.. I've tried some pretty crappy nail varnishes recently but after your review I am defo going to try the topshop ones..
