Surprise product - Technic nail varnish review

It's not unusual for supermarkets have beauty and make-up sections, but whilst doing my weekly food shop last week I stumbled across an unexpected item tucked away down one of the isles. This product was a sample of nail varnishes that were placed between some snacks and cleaning products close to the check outs. 

The polish is from a brand that I've never heard of before - Technic - and according to the bottle this is part of their Pretty Pastels collection. I noticed that it was selling for an absolute bargain - only £1 - so decided to add it to my shopping. If it turned out to be a great polish then fab haha but if it was pretty awful £1 isn't much of a loss.

Admittedly there wasn't a huge amount of colour choice and some of the available choices weren't the nicest - think slime green. However there was one shade that caught my eye called "Mr Blue Sky".



When I got home I tried this out pretty much straight away. I applied 2 coats along with a clear top coat and to be honest, was pretty impressed. The colour came out the same as shown on the bottle (does anyone else ever find it can look completely different sometimes? Such a disappointment) and had a lovely gloss effect. The polish lasted for a pretty reasonable amount of time with only a few tiny chips after around 4 days.

After searching around I can't seem to find a website for Technique so unfortunately can't leave a direct link. Yet it seems you can buy them from different online stores including eBay and Amazon ranging from £1 to £2.50.

Now, I'll be honest and say this isn't as good as some of the more popular nail varnish brands - but for £1 it does a good job. I'd definitely recommend this product if you're on a budget or just fancy a mini beauty treat.

If anyone else tried this or have any other budget nail varnish brands to recommend I'd love to know.
