Nail of the day: MUA cosmetics Stormy Skies

I do love a nice nail varnish that's cheap as chips, but this one from MUA is cheaper than chips.  At €1.35, you could probably stand there in Superdrug, empty out the coppers in your purse and still have some left over.  The sales assistant would probably be shooting your daggers, but sure you'd be happy out with a grand nail polish and a lighter handbag!

I picked up a few of them recently in my local Superdrug in Santry and truth be told, if they'd more in stock, I would have snapped them up.

Stormy Skies is a dark green shade with fine gold shimmer running through it.  It almost looks like it's a gunmetal colour from afar, then it can look almost black in some light, but upon closer inspection, you can see just how dark the green is. 

I can safely place it into my "sophisticated" pile of polishes, meaning that it's quite understated and very office friendly.  The photos below show two coats and the formula is fantastic, especially for such an affordable polish.  The only thing I wish they'd fix is the teeny weeny skinny brush.  It means you've to go back into it a couple of times to coat the nail, but once you can live with that, it's plain sailing.  We'll also ignore the obvious "inspiration" for the bottle design taken from Essie. 

Will I keep buying MUA polishes?  Absolutely!  You can buy them in Superdrug or if you're nowhere near one, you can purchase online here.  I made an order on Saturday the 17th of August it arrived last night, so if you don't mind waiting, they've lots to choose from there.

You like Stormy Skies?
