Lottie London is a fairly new brand that hit the stores around March time this year. It recently hit my local superdrug store and I thought I’d try a nail varnish from the brand. I didn’t pick up more than one incase I didn’t really like the formula/it didn’t last long (I am quite picky when it comes to nail varnishes).
Firstly can we talk about how cute the packaging is? The brand is aimed at teenagers and young adults, although I think they would suit any age! The packaging would look so cute on a shelf and it’s hard not to want to buy the whole range purely based on packaging alone (do not fear, I would not do that). Not only do their nail varnishes look very appealing, so do their brushes. I didn’t purchase any but if I do in the future a post will be necessary!
The polish I bought is in the shade ‘ hit refresh‘ and as you can see from the photo above the shade is an absolutely gorgeous pinky nude. There are about 60 nail polishes in the range and they are all stunning! Serious nail envy with some of the brighter shades, they look beautiful and I will beyond any doubt be buying some more in the future. The formula of the polish is great! The colour pay off is great for a nude, two coats are needed to create a good clean opaque varnish, but I would recommend three – the nail polish dried relatively quickly so it isn’t much of a problem. In terms of application, the long brush made applying the varnish relatively easy which is good if you aren’t very accurate when painting nails. The longevity of the varnish was pretty good, especially for a nude. The first time I wore it it didn’t last that long and that was with two coats, so three is definitely needed. With 3 coats it lasted about five or so days without chipping badly
At £5.99 (just slightly pricier than Barry M yet cheaper than Essie), Lottie London nail varnishes have got my seal of approval! I think they would be great as gifts as well, as their packaging is more professional in my opinion than other brands such as Barry M.
I’ve literally worn this nail varnish so much over the past couple of months and it could possibly be my favourite ‘pink nude’ I’ve tried (which is a big deal as I am obsessed with my pinky nude nails).
