No7 Temptress

The time has come again when Boots are giving away a £5 No7 or Ruby and Millie voucher with any purchase of £5 or more in store. I had to buy hair dye yesterday so I grabbed my voucher and, as I always do, pelted over to the No7 counter to pick out a polish.
I picked up 'Temptress' which, in the bottle, looks like Brown with a hint of Red. When I put it on, I was kind of disappointed because it's more of a Red with a hint of Brown. I'd call it burgundy. 

Application wasn't any prettier than the resulting colour. There was plenty of drag, I had to use 3 coats and the coverage is still patchy with some visible nail line.

I was super disappointed when I put this on yesterday but I've been wearing it since and it's really grown on me. It's very elegant but vampy at the same time. I don't think this formula is worth the full price of £7 but if you have a voucher, it's worth paying £2. However, there are plenty of other exquisite shades in the range that are more deserving of your attention. 


  1. Despite the issues you had, I do like that color. I'm glad it grew on you. The color in the bottle sure doesn't match the mani.

  2. What IS it with No.7? I recently did a mani with Betty Blues (which is too gorgeous in the bottle). On the nail? Rubbish. I would have been annoyed if I hadn't used my £5 voucher to get it!

    BTW, I like the jelly finish on this one.
