|17 forever bottle|
Here is the brand 17 which belongs to the Boots range, the polish itself is called Forever. They have such nice colours but I think they are far too expensive for an own brand nail varnish.
Here is the bottle. It's simple but I love the writing on it. The brushes are grand! They are wide enough to cover the nail but not so wide that your pinky finger is slathered is polish. The bristles are quite sturdy making the polish easier to control.
The polish in the bottle is quite accurate in representing the colour that you end up with on the nail.
The bottles seem quite small but a little goes a long way! Each bottle holds 8ml of varnish.

I love the way the polish looked with my skin tone. It applied so well.
The major downfall, for someone who doesn't own quick drying topcoats,is the drying time. It takes a fair while to dry. Now I don't mean hours but compared to Catrice and even Barry m, this polish is just not on the same level in terms of speed in drying.
It does dry evenly though. It didn't bubble when applied and I wore this for a week without chipping (I'm surprised I can remember that fact but anything useful for exams just floats straight out of my head haha)
These were taken waaaayyyyy before I even knew normal people like myself could actual start up their own nail polish blog. I had never heard of cuticle's (which explains my blog name in a way :P ) and the thought of buying cream designed to moisturize them wasn't even going to appear on my radar for another few months.

Overall, I am delighted that I bought this polish. It's pretty much what started off my obsession with doing my nails. I think this was taken in September of last year on my first day back to college.
What do ye all think? I know a lot of ye don't have access to this brand. I think it is only available in Ireland and the UK. If ye had the chance would ye buy it? Do ye have any suggestions for a nice nude polish?
That's all for today! Hope ye all enjoyed this post. Thank you all for following. I am almost up to 40 followers and I can't believe it.
