For someone as terrible at painting their nails as me, it may seem bizarre to have a rather large nail polish collection. I think part of this may be down to my makeup hoarding nature, although the main reason being that my local salon lets me bring in my own colours and worst case if I do get a chip I can at least attempt to patch it up. So when I was lucky enough to be gifted a bottle of True Brit nail enamel in Country Tweed, I was over the moon. A girl can never have too much nude makeup right?!
First of all, the packaging is gorgeous. I know, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging that will look pretty on my dressing table. And the name “Country Tweed” is super cute and very British, in fact, all of True Brit‘s nail colours are named after things that are quintessentially British. With their current collection features names like Taxi Cab, Village Fate and Henley Regatta. As a Londoner, it’s kind of hard not to have a sense of British pride, despite seeing mugs with the royal family and “keep calm” slogans on at every corner.
Anyway, I digress. On to the most important thing, the formula and how it performs. True Brit claims to be made from the finest ingredients including elderflower & rose extracts and vitamin E. It’s also lovely and thick to apply, or so the lady in the salon told me and so far they’ve survive a week without a chip. I have to say I’m pretty impressed and it makes it well worth the £12.50 price tag, I can see myself getting a lot more use out of this little bottle. True Brit is available exclusively on their website.
Have you tried any nail colours by True Brit yet? What did you think?
