£1 MUA Minty Nails

Good afternoon beauties, 

how are we all this fine Monday afternoon? It’s so gorgeous here, I’m enjoying a bit of peace and quiet, r&r. Sat in the garden, sipping on a nice cuppa from my favourite mug, and getting some cake inspiration for a certain birthday girl :)

 These look delicious, although I'm not quite sure mine will be quite up to this standard... we can only hope!

I have a new nail colour obsession, MINT!!

Sorry I think the sun is shining on my nails, not sure if you can see the colour too well...

I LOVE this shade, super summery and reminds me of a mint flavour ice cream cone in the countryside. It's something a little different than the shades I normally go for, and brightens up any outfit too :) The best part, its only £1. Yes beauties that's right, £1!! Bargin in my opinion.

It's by a company called MUA (Make Up Academy), exclusive to Superdrug. The whole MUA range (over 100 beauty products), from blushers to lipsticks, are just £1. Insane right?! THANK YOU Superdrug for coming to the rescue of beautie junkies like myself, a make-up addiction can set you back some serious moolah. 
I would reccomend all of you to check out this range, at the price, you can't really go wrong. I know I shall certainly be purchasing some lipsticks and blushers, even just out of curiosity. I've particularly got my eye on the MUA blusher in shade 3, I have a sneaky suspicion it looks very similar to a NARS blusher I have...

 I also want to try the lipstick in shade 5, a cute pale pink colour...

Obviously the packaging isn't going to be the most glamorous in the world, but it does the job, and you can't really begrudge them. The only thing I will say about this varnish is that you definetly need to do 2 coats, as 1 coat alone is rather see-through. I would also advise a top coat too, just to make it last longer as it can chip easily otherwise. But for a quid, these negatives are rather insignificant. Great for when you want to try a more daring colour without splashing out too much :)
If any of you wanted to try this particular colour, it's shade 5 (they don't have names)!

Laters Xx
