2true Limited Edition Crystal Nail Polish - Ibiza

If you follow me on Twitter you already know the reason for my extended silence: on Wednesday 28th November I became a mum for the second time, welcoming another little girl, Lucía, to our family.

During the last few days of my pregnancy I was contacted by 2true Cosmetics and asked to review some of their new products. I was very eager to test a brand I wasn't familiar with and aimed to meet their launch date of 5th December but unfortunately my recovery from C-section has proven a little slower than I was hoping for.

So today I am showing you the colour I was most excited about: 2true Limited Edition Crystal Nail Polish shade 8 - Ibiza. The press release describes the Crystal shades as "perfect for event season" and I couldn't agree more. The formula is thinner than I had anticipated but two coats ensure full coverage as the micro glitter is very densely packed. The most noticeable colours on shade 8 are fuchsia and turquoise, giving it an overall metallic purple tone from afar. Very feminine and eye-catching!

Drying time is average and a layer of top coat enhances the product whilst smoothing over the surface. Removal with pure acetone was easier than your average glitter and there was no staining afterwards.

A couple of very important points to add are that 2true nail varnishes are B3F and not tested on animals. Their products retail at £1.99 each or three for £4.99, exclusively from Superdrug. These 7.5 ml bottles are ideal for those who just want to try something new without breaking the bank. I was impressed by the quality of such an affordable polish.

2true Cosmetics are a British brand and all their products are made in the UK/EU, to European quality standards. 

Please note that the product reviewed above was sent to me free of charge by the company's PR for my unbiased consideration.

      It was my first experience with the brand but for £1.99 they are definitely worth a try!
