H&M Rust Nail Polish

H&M rust Nail Polish: H&M (99p) 
white dots: ebay nail art pens (review here

Saw this when I was checking out a few weeks ago in H&M. I've never tried their polishes before but I thought the colour was really unusual and I didnt own anything like it previously so I thought it was worth trying out! I know things like this are generally put at the checkout to entice you into spending that little bit extra, and obviously it works. But I really like the nail polish, it took two coats to be opaque and had a pretty average drying time. The colour is unlike any nail polish I've seen before, a strange warm dark muted orange, definitely rusty but not brown. I think its gorgeous! Plus I really like the bottle too, just has a really nice feel it it and I love the font! Bit of a nerdy thing but oh well! Perfect colour for autumn winter!

  2. Love the unusual colour of this. The H&M 99p polishes aren't too bad for the money, I get tempted by them too often though! x

  10. I didn't realise that H&M did nail polish, 99p is such a bargain! It's such a unique colour and like you said perfect for autumn, I like how it contrasts against your pink jumper :)

  13. Love the design you've done! I think I saw this polish a while ago but didn't buy it. I didn't realise it was 99p though! Might have to pick up a bottle as I really like the colour

  27. That colour is lovely, so unique! I love H&M polishes, the ones that I've tried have all been really good for both application and staying power. I have a lovely forest green from there that is one of my favourite nail polish.

    Love the font used too! xx

  28. Oh wow this is a GORGEOUS colour. And only 99p?! Definitely going to have to get one.

  29. Did it stain? I have used H&M in the past and the red in particular leaves a nasty nicotine stain on my nails.

  30. I used to use H&M face powders during my teenage years. They were really good but I chose to stop using it because my skin dried up and became so much less oily. But I still give credit to H&M for decent cosmetics! xx
