A few weeks ago I needed a new top coat, and thought why not buy one for £1 in Poundland rather than pay more?!
Well, I thought nothing more of it - and then I had two weeks where my manicure was chipping very quickly. And apologies to Boutique and The Body Shop who I was thinking hadn't made very long-lasting polishes...it wasn't them. It was my budget top coat.
Don't be tempted by it. For something like a top coat it seems you shouldn't go budget - best to spend slightly more than £1 on it!
