NOTD: Elixir by No7

Today my nails of choice are Elixir (#480) from the Ultimate Nail Colour range by No7 at Boots.  I got this nail polish quite a while ago and never used it (majorly regretting that now, its gorgeous) so I think that it has now gone into the revamped ‘Stay Perfect’ range at No7.

The above photos are taken with two coats, before any clean up and before the application of a top coat, to give you a true indication of what the polish is like.  The formulation of the polish is fairly thick but it is fast drying and very buildable.  The polish becomes a deeper red with the more coats you apply.  The application is exceptionally even and can easily be left at just one coat.  The colour is beautiful, very rich and shimmery.  All in all, I love this polish.

This polish really reminds me of Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone because the stone was the ‘Elixir’ of life and it is a similar colour to this polish.  I’m off to see the new Harry Potter film at the cinema tonight.  I always go to Cineworld and have the Unlimited card as it saves me a small fortune.  Can’t wait!

What do you think of No7’s nail polishes? Are you a Harry Potter fan? What do you think of the new film?
