BEAUTY: Introducing Mary Kay Nail Lacquers

Wednesday, 9 March 2016

Nails being painted with nail varnish.

Now that my nails are well on their way to growing really healthy and long, I'm keen to try out a variety of different nail polish brands. When my nails are short I avoid drawing attention to them by painting them, If I do opt to put anything on them I usually opt for a clear polish or something in a very soft pink. When they are long, I'm happy to go for something bolder, obviously! I was recently sent two shades from the Mary Kay Cityscape collection. A beautiful purple shade named aptly named 'Berry Stylish' and lighter shade named 'Gallery Grey'. These are two of the shades available from the collection. They also have 'Garden Terrace' which is a dark moss green colour & Polished Pearls, which is a more silvery pearl shade as the name suggests!

The formula for these lacquers is relatively thin, but their pigmentation packs a punch, you don't have to worry about having to wait around to apply multiple coats.To be honest, with Berry Stylish I could have definitely got away with only doing one coat, but I'm a creature of habit and had to do another! With just two coats the result is a really opaque finish with no streaking.  I found these shades really glossy, so if you are like me and love a glossy nail these are for you. (I really cannot get into the matte nail trend, I'm not a fan!)

These Mary Kay lacquers retail for £9 each, which a little on the pricier side, compared to some of the other brands available on the market, but I think it's worth it due to their pigmentation, glossiness and longevity. If you apply them in thin coats and have the addition of a good quality top coat the polishes can last up to 3/4 days without chipping which I think is really good compared to others I've tried.

Had you heard of this brand before? Would you try the lacquers?

Much love,

  3. Sometimes with nail polishes its worth paying a bit more for something which lasts and has a decent colouring to it x

  5. I've only heard about Mary Kay recently after watching the beginning of this years Project Runway over in the US.

    I think that price is really good actually if the polish lasts a little longer.
