Boots vochers

Those £3 off number vouchers are back again.
But they are extra good value at the moment as the polishes are buy one, get one half price, so this makes them buy one, get one free Very Happy

I haven't bought a No7 polish in years - never got on with them at all. Patchy, streaky application and horrendously quick to chip. They would have to have improved a hell of a lot to be worth £3 - does anyone know if they have?

I think alot of application issus are down to personal body chemistry.

I get on well with No7, but you may aswell throw Nails Inc in a quarry for how long it stays on my fingers.

Yes, you're probably right - nothing seems to suit everyone Smile I've never tried nails inc though - seems very expensive for something not particularly special.

I think the No. 7 polishes are great, aren't the vouchers usually £5 off though? I don't tend to shop at Boots, I think Superdrug is better personally

I think they used to be £5 - but a couple of years ago they re-packaged all the No7 stuff, made the polishes cheaper and reduced the vouchers to £3 off. 

I use both really - I like a lot of the superdrug own brand stuff, but there's a boots at the retail park near work so I can pop in without having to pay to park Smile

How much do you have to spend in the first place to get a voucher?

I'm with you on this. I can't stand No7 polishes. I've got a handful, mostly given to me or picked up for next to nothing and they're all awful. I put a gold one on a couple of weeks ago and it looked like I'd just thrown it in the vague direction of my nails. Lumpy bits, flooded cuticles, the works.

Actually I've just remembered I have got one I like, Pearly Pink. It's not pink by any stretch of the imagination but it looks great under Barry M Croc Effects.

It's anything over £5 because if you are clever about it you can buy a lunchtime meal deal and a polish using a voucher and get another voucher at the til, I quite often end up in an endless circle of vouchers by doing that. Laughing

I steered clear of them for years too mmmmchoc, then tentatively bought one a couple of months ago. Nothing's changed Laughing Still not for me, anyway.

I definitely wouldn't pay full price for them but for £3 I think they're pretty good and the top coat is brilliant, it's funny how some polishes just don't suit you but everyone else seems to like them, it's a bit like Nails Inc for me, I know loads of people really like them but I find them awful to apply and they chip almost instantly on my nails. Mad

The scientist in me is wondering if it's worth doing a bit of a survey to see if there are any patterns... 

I think a couple of people have said Nails Inc is no good for them but No7 is fine - so I'm wondering if that's a common thing... And if the people who don't get on with No7 do get on with Nails Inc? And if there are any other brands with similar relationships?

Or is that a bit geeky Smile

Nice one Sal - thanks for getting us started Smile 

There's a lot of brands I've never tried (china glaze, Nails Inc, a lot of the sally hansen ranges) so can't comment on.

I don't get on with:
nail envy
No7

I do get on with:
models own
Sally Hansen CSM
Rimmel salon pro

I've not had much luck with nail envy or SH Instadry.
Several Kleancolour chunky holos just never dry on me -they remain permanently like toffee - the black was the worst Sad
Also Revolution - I was one of the people who found it didn't help with removal and went all tacky on naked nails.

Kleancolor never dry on me either! The only brand I have problems with regularly are Nails Inc, they just seem to chip so badly on my nails.

I have problems with Models Own, but nails inc has been the worst.

I love Sally Hansen, China Glaze and Color Club.
