Biscuit Nails by Next Oh So… Cosmetics

To promote the (recent?) release  'Oh so...' their affordable range of Cosmetics, Next is offering four shades of nail polishes when you purchase of copy of Easy Living Magazine. I had no idea Next was doing makeup, so this operation is perfect for me, if only for one slighty detail...

There is a problem right away: the magazine costs £3.70 and the nail polish retails for just £2.50. Ooops. But it's worth it if the shade is stunning, right?


There are 4 shades on offer: biscuit (nude) shimmer (white with golden shimmer shining through it) blush (a delicate pink) and metal (dark metal grey).

My friend and I went half and half and bought 'biscuit'. I now wish we bought shimmer and biscuit doesn't suit her nor me. The shape of the bottle will remind you straight away of the bottle from Beautyuk, apart from the top of the bottle which less round than the bottle of the Beautyuk.

Biscuit applied beautifully, had a little bit of dragging but gave me perfect coverage in 2 coats. Drying time was fantastic. I am very impressed by the quality. Sadly this shade is not for my friend, nor for me, and reminds me a little bit of Caramel from Nails Inc, another magazine/bottle of coke freebie, but not as 'horrendous'.

If any of you bought 'shimmer' and fancy a swap let me know and let’s do business Smile

I love this colour on you, Liloo! I really like the application of the Next polishes; I have a pastel blue and it's perfect in TWO coats, that's right, TWO! Someone needs to teach Chanel a thing or two! x
