In a continuation of my H&M Cosmetics line reviews, I bring you a post about their new nail polishes.
These retail for $6.99 each, not a bad price for a bottle of nail polish in my opinion. The packaging is simple, gold writing on the clear glass bottle, and a white cap. Very clean and simple like the rest of the line.
I bought two different colours, Stucco and Copper Penny. Stucco is a regular formula and Copper Penny is a metallic.
Stucco is a gorgeous bluey-greeny-grey shade. It's so incredibly unique, I'm not even sure how to describe it. In some lights it looks more green-grey and in others more blue-grey. I think the best description would be a grey robin's egg shade.
Copper Penny is a brilliant metallic bronze. Again, I have never seen a shade like this. There might have been a similar colour in Essie's fall collection this year, but this would be a cheaper dupe for that.
I have to say, I am incredibly impressed with these polishes. I didn't really have high hopes, especially as someone who doesn't really care for nail polish. But the first time I used Stucco, I fell in love. It is so opaque you can get away with a single coat (although I still used two, it's just personal preference), it dries really quickly, in under 10 minutes, and it doesn't chip easily. Usually my nail polish chips within a day, but it took a solid 3 days for this to chip (and I'm hard on my manicures). Copper Penny is the same, very opaque, quick-drying, and chip proof. I love that all of the formulas are the same, whether regular or metallic.
I definitely would suggest you try these polishes, they are absolutely amazing.
