Graffiti Nails - Pistachio Review

Today we have a nail polish review on the blog! I was sent three polishes by Graffiti Nails for review purposes and I thought I would split them up into three posts and maybe include a fourth post with some nail art. The first of the three polishes is featured today.

Graffiti Nails are a new nail polish company that at the minute are UK only with plans to launch internationally. I first heard about this brand through One Nail To Rule Them All's announcement post which you can view here and I have to say I was very excited to hear more about the brand. I'm really glad I have the chance to review them. Graffiti Nails say that there ''enamels are easy to apply, long lasting, have a high shine and dry quickly.''

Pistachio* is a lovely mint green colour, and out of the three I was sent, this is the one I was most excited about. I'm loving all things mint at the minute! The swatch shows three quite thick coats.

My first thought was that the polish smells quite strong, very strong in fact, I had to open the window to avoid a headache. I am quite sensitive to polish smells though so this might not be a problem for everyone. I found the brush easy to use and also discovered that the square lid can be removed to reveal a smaller round handle which some people may find easier to use even though I had no problem myself with the larger square handle. I found that the coats had to be quite thick otherwise the polish dragged a little from the coat below and that three coats were necessary to cover brush strokes. The polish dries quite quickly and does have the high shine promised on the website.

Overall I would definitely use this polish again but definitely near an open window to avoid the fumes!

Keep your eyes peeled for the next two polishes to be reviewed! Do you like the colour? Have you tried Graffiti Nails? The polishes are priced at a reasonable £3.99 each with free postage if you buy three polishes on one order!

*Polish sent for review purposes. All opinions are 100% honest.
