Beauty UK or Beauty No-K?

I have a few Beauty UK polishes. They are only cheap - but some if the colours are nice - so they chip easily and are not amazing.
Since I am running out of my beloved NYC Top Coat, I need a new one that's not too expensive since I only ever wear it for a day and get through it really fast.
So, I bought Beauty UK's '2 in 1 Top Coat' which is fine as a base coat but rubbish as a top coat.
Last night, I finished my nails, with top coat, at least 30 minutes before bed but when I woke up, they were all scratched and dented. Since then, I've painted on the blue and added a coat of NYC.
You can see on the thumb where the polish has basically 'stretched' because the top coat didn't do its job and dry the polish underneath :(

So, basically, don't buy Beauty UK top coats :D

  1. I love the Konad, looks so cute

    you need Seche :-) tis magic in a bottle!!

  2. Thanks Rebekah. I've heard the rave reviews about Seche Vite and I've seen that so many of the polish bloggers use it but I just can't afford it. I'm on a student's budget :(
    I don't normally pay more than £3 for a polish unless I realllly want it!

  3. ooooh thats lovely :) Have you tried Models Own nail polishes yet?


  4. Marina,
    Thank you. And no I haven't. Are you a fan?
    I have to say - once again, they just cost too much for me :(
