No7 Beanie

I decided to buy this polish after seeing a review on another blog and the name stuck in my head, so when I went to Boots to use my magical £5 off No7 voucher I decided to give it a go.

My first impressions weren’t great as the formula was no7_beanieparticularly thick and hard to work with, resulting in quite a lot of lumps and bubbles. 

So unfortunately, due to this the colour didn’t even last 24 hours on my nails. But I am willing to forgive and forget and give it another go sometime. I only have one other No7 nail polish and that one has a great formula (note to self: must do no7_beanie2a NOTD for that polish) so hopefully application will be a smoother with Beanie next time I use it.

Apart from this, it is a really nice, subtle and unique shade which is not quite brown and not quite grey. I don’t usually go for neutral colours but this could be the start of something new. I am still searching for the perfect nude polish though!

Anyway let me know what you think of No7 Beanie or if you have it/have another No7 polish with questionable consistency!



  1. I have Beanie and I was really happy with it compared to my other experiences with No7! I didn't find th formula too thick, maybe you got a bottle that someone had opened?
    I hate the bottle design though, so impractical!

  2. That's a shame. Good colour. I'm having a giveaway soon and I've already put you down for an extra entry as I'm checking my comments and so you qualify. So if you want to enter just log on tomorrow and follow the instructions!


Let me know what you think or just say hello I love hearing from people who read my blog!
