2True Shade 10

Regular readers of the blog will know that I have decided that navy blue is the “in” colour this winter. I know that fashion week has been raging for what feels like a billion years, but to be honest, I haven’t been paying much attention. Is navy blue the “in” colour? I don’t really care what other people are doing – it’s a colour that has dragged me out of my perennial black and for that, we should all be grateful.

So, here we have the latest polish from 2True’s awesome Quick Dry range, and as luck would have it, it is navy blue. Win. I’ve been harping on for a year or two now about wishing that some company would bring out a navy creme polish (as up until now most of the ones I have seen have been jellies), and here we have it.

I tell you what, badge this up as a high end polish and I swear you would never know that it’s a cheapie that retails for a couple of quid in Superdrug. This applies like a dream – the flat brush really suits my large nails, the polish flowed beautifully and there was zero dragging or pulling. Amazing. It was pretty much opaque within one coat, but I did two just to be on the safe side. I added a coat of CND Air Dry but even without it, this was shiny and glossy and dried mega fast.

I have yet to meet a 2True Quick Dry polish that I didn’t like. These are absolute staples in my collection for when I want a creme finish that is gorgeously pigmented and dries fast. And now they’ve scratched my navy itch – marvellous. Just one slight issue… I suggest you have a shower after you remove this one, unless you want to be sporting smurf fingers for a good while afterwards….

What do you think? What’s your favourite colour this Autumn?

    I am with you on the navy, I am a bit navy-obsessed this past month or so and it is unbelievably hard to find a navy creme polish.
    I will be hunting this down asap!

    Fabulous colour! I’m always so cheered up when I read a nail polish post, really like the colour, and can actually afford to just nip out and get it! x

    What a nice colour. I think it’s great for cheapie brands to be so on trend. And as for the smurf hands, it’s blue – they all do it!

    This looks amazing. I always seem to bypass the 2True counter. An LOL @ your last pic. Thats some staining. My fav budget navy is Barry M’s. Only polish I’ve ever rebought from running out.
