Boots Number 17 Peacock

Are we feeling summery yet? Hopefully this will get you in the mood!

This little gem is from none other than Boots No 17. I’ve said it before and I will say it again – this is a much under-rated brand in terms of nail polish. I know that the stand and bottles and general clientele hanging about the stand (tweenage girls giggling and making a mess of the samples) might not be all that appealing to older ladies, but I urge¬†you to take a closer look the next time you are in the vicinity.

This may not be the most sophisticated polish in my collection, but I don’t care. Look at it! It glows. So beautiful. Application was absolutely fine as well – for a little bottle, these 17 polishes apply remarkably well (please disregard the fact that I also appear to have painted my fingers).

I’m already imagining how this is going to look on summer toes, and can’t wait for flip-flop season to hurry up and arrive!

What do you think? Would you wear this? What’s your favourite 17 polish?

    Weird. I really like it in the first photo but don’t like at all it in the second.

    It is an underrated brand. Very true. I have a few.

    It’s lovely, a fantastic holiday colour. I don’t own any 17 polishes so I think I’ll have to change that!

    I love a lot of 17’s colours but they wear so badly. I often can’t make a day without chips, even underneath seche.

    @Vic I have the same problem, but some of the newer shades seem to be better on that score. Having said that, Barry M and 2True are about the same price and have much better wear, so I’m trying to stay away from the Boots varnishes!

    Well bought this today but I would say mine looks greener than your pics
