Best Buys: March and April

Yeah, I was a bit slack with my 'new buy' posts for March and April so I've decided to compact it into a post talking about the best products I bought from those months. There's still quite a few things so I will put a page breaker in! As I've said in a few of my posts, recently I've really been in to nail polish, so this post is going to be nail polish heavy!

NOTW 5: Mars

For this NOTW I wanted to try a new bright colour that I bought recently. It's Technic's 'Mars'. It's a really bright redy-orange colour thats really hard to describe. It's looks super bright in the bottle but not as much on the nails. It's still very noticable however and the colour is really nice on! This polish is super pigmented and on the swatch below I had only applied one coat! It was pretty much completely opaque and there weren't any lumps or bumps! There is a downside however and that is it doesn't last very long. I had a chip within a day and by day 3 it had started peeling and chipping off every nail. Overall for only 99p I think is a great colour to get despite the wear.
