NOTD: Shade 1 by MUA

On Saturday, i purhased this nail polish from Superdrug’s MUA Make Up Academy and tried it out as soon as I got home.

MUA Shade 1

The polish doesnt have a shade name, but it is Shade 1 and can be purchased in Superdrug stores or online here for only £1.  Yes, only 1 of the finest queens english pounds!

At first sight, I thought this was a navy polish, but its actually a black, with blue and purple reflects.  The colour is so stunning, it will definitely see me through many a Christmas night out!

This nail varnish definitely needs two coats as the first coat comes out looking streaky but after a second coat it is transformed.  I always apply two coats anyway so this really isnt a problem.  Plus, its mega fast drying, which is great for me as I ALWAYS leave painting my nails until the last minute.

I have to admit, I was a little dubious at first as I didnt have high hopes for a nail polish costing only £1 but having used it, im so pleased i put my faith in it.  The only let down I would say is the packaging which is a basic nail polish pot but with a sticker on for the information.  It makes the product look cheap, which of course it is, but you know what I mean!  This of course, doesnt bear any reflection on the performance of the nail varnish and at a price thats affordable for everyone, I dont think anyone can grumble!

I’m definitely going to try some more MUA nail varnishes.  Ive got my eye on shades 4, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15 and 18….. not many haha.

Have you tried any MUA products?
