Poundland Polka Dot

Greetings All!

I saw this polish in my local Poundland a couple of weeks ago. It's by a brand called Pretty, and it's called Polka Dot polish. Pretty have quite a big range in my local pound shops with various trends - matte polish, scented polish, little flocking  and caviar kits, nail art bits. I was intrigued by this one (and also matte polish), and you think for a Pound, it isn't the end of the world if it's totally rubbish!

This polish isn't amazing. It smells really strongly, and it's a little bit thick. However that thick base helps the glitters lie more smoothly, it dries fairly quickly, and it isn't too difficult to get the glitter on your nail, which it often can be with cheap polishes. It's a mix of black hexes and smaller black glitter.

This is 2 coats over a bright red Bourjois.

It isn't too bad at all! In fact I quite like it! It looks a little similar to Nubar Black Polka Dot, but the budget version. The hexes look a bit taco-y, but they did lie flat on the nail. I'm kicking myself that I didn't try it matte, especially as I've been mattifying a lot lately.

I do get a lot of Revlon and Sally Hansen from Poundland, so this isn't the best value polish or anything, but for a quid, I like it! I'll be trying more from their range in future (I was going to try a scented one, but it doesn't say what they are supposed to smell of, which is a little disconcerting!)


  1. I saw this but didn't get it, regretting it now!

    1. Lol I can always justify buying polish for a pound!

  2. I'm going to have to get back into Poundland asap... dammit!

  3. I see another visit to my local Poundland in the near future! :D

    I love polka dot effect polishes. :)

    1. Me too! I've had the Nubar one on my shopping list for a few months, as I've been wanting a plain black glitter. This one will do nicely!


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
