Cheap n cheerful – Cutex’s French Manicure range

Hi!!!! Has everyone been enjoying their weekend? πŸ™‚ Mine got off to a lousy start – due to being unwell I did not make it to the Morricone concert. 😦 Since Saturday, however, I’ve been feeling much better and I did get to do some fun things this weekend. I also received a huge surprise early birthday present from Mr R (my birthday is actually this week)! I will tell you all more about that later on.

I briefly mentioned this polish in an earlier post, but love it so much I thought it was worth a proper review post all of its own – from Cutex’s French Manicure polish range. πŸ™‚ There are several colours in the range, including pinks, whites and creams, and I have ~

#603: French Rose

Here it is, on my nails today! πŸ™‚

I've got 2 coats of the polish on here. This pic unfortunately does not show the pinkish side to this polish to the fullest!

Price: I picked this up on sale for $2.99 AUD but usually it’s between $5 and $10 AUD, if I remember correctly.

Where can I get it? In my earlier post, I mentioned Priceline, but tonight I realised that actually I had bought it at Chemist Warehouse! You can get it at both of these places, however, as well as discount department stores such as Big W and some supermarkets.

I love the shade of this polish as it is a nude but it has a slight pink in it. It is long wearing however be careful to apply thin coats. I did have problems with the polish peeling off the same day (!) when I applied it thickly (I had wanted a more opaque effect at the time, but I now know that was not the way to achieve it!).

With a top coat this lasts on my nails up to 5 days, which I’m very happy with. However, as time goes by the colour of the polish can change slightly – becoming slighly more yellowed than pinkish. This has happened regardless of whether or not I’m wearing a top coat.

A good performer at a very good price! My rating of this product is based on the price I bought it for, which of course is a sale price –

Beautiful rating: quality 4/5, value 5/5.

Usually I’m very talkative, aren’t I, and have something to say down here! Not much to say tonight! (Don’t worry it’s not you it’s me! ;-))

Have a great week ahead everyone and thank you for visiting, reading and supporting the blog! I hope to have a new (privately hosted) version of the site up and running by month’s end… Overambitious much?! LOL πŸ˜€
