Nails of the Day – 17 Risky Red

I have to admit, it’s been a while since I tried a polish from the 17 range… a while since I bought anything from them actually, but the ‘Supreme Shine – up to 10 day wear’ range looked rather promising, and grown up.

Today I am wearing Risky Red, which is a lovely bright blood red colour. You may notice that it’s a little bit messy – I found it tricky to apply! The formula was great – really glossy and opaque with just one coat – but I found the brush quite hard to work with. It is short and fat but very dense. On one hand it’s fab as you can get so much of your nail covered in just one swipe of the brush, but on the other I found it hard to get to the sides of my nails without either leaving a gap, or getting it on my fingers! That said, the colour is gorgeous, and it is definitely supremely shiny, as it says on the bottle, which I love!

I’m on day 2 of wearing it and there is very very slight tip-wear to my forefinger, which is always the first to go. Nail polishes don’t tend to last for long on my nails anyway – but I certainly don’t think it’ll last the full 10 days. The polish is only ¬£3.99 (and 3 for 2 at the moment) – it’s great value for money.

Have you tried any of these polishes? Do you have the same brush issue, or is that just me!?

    I have Risky Red and it is the best blood red I have tried. I agree though about the brush I like brushes to be rounded at the end or shaped in some way, it makes it so much easier for applying!
