You know when you fall in love with a nail shade? Yeah, that. I fell for Make Up Gallery’s Parma Violet the moment I saw it on the display.
Just a reminder, Make Up Gallery is the just-launched Poundland makeup brand so before you ask, yes, this amazing polish is just £1!
Being a £1 nail polish I was very nervous about using it. I do my nails to last at least 7 days so I hate polishes that apply badly or even worse, chip. I really did not want this beauty of a colour to disappoint me. And it didn’t.
This polish is creamy so the risks of staining are higher, but not for this one; it applied beautifully, smoothly and in a very uniform way. The brush has slightly rounded edges, which makes application easier – if I can point out a fault it would be the bristles are slightly short.
Alone, this colour is stunning. I added some black tips (L’Oréal Color Riche Black Swan) and the amazing glittery Prisma Gloss Silver topcoat by Orly (love – it makes any nail polish special).
H0nestly, I don’t think Parma Violet needed anything added, I almost regretted adding the details to it. Totally in love.
