No7 Speed Dry Nail Polish in Blackberry

This is one of those polishes that I've had my collection forever but I just haven't got round to reviewing it. As you can see by the pictures, I'm about half way through the bottle (I say I'm, it has been stolen more times then I can count by numerous family members).

I love love love fast drying nail polish. I am one of those people who, no matter how hard I try to sit still, I always mess up my nails.

Blackberry is a lovely dark red/purple shade, with a hint of golden shimmer. I love dark plum shades on nails. Perfect for winter! It costs £7.00 for 10ml. I bought this polish at Boots with a £5 No7 voucher. I can't seem to find the polish on the website - I don't know if it's been discontinued, but I thought I'd share it anyway.

It applied well, taking two coats to become completely opaque. True to it's name, it dried very quickly. Unfortunately, this is where all the good things end.

This may well be one of the worst polishes for chipping that I have ever used. It didn't even last half a day. Not impressed with the wearing time at all, which is a huge shame because the colour is just beautiful. I still wear this if I'm going for the evening, but I don't apply it regularly. I definitely will not be repurchasing, hopefully I can find a similar shade elsewhere that lasts longer.

Have you tried any of the polishes from No7? What did you think?

Disclosure: I bought this product myself.
