MUA’s Nail Polish – I’ve been looking for this shade for ages!


That’s the trouble with MUA – it’s so cheap, yet so fashionable, that it’s getting pretty difficult to find the product you’re after! In smaller Superdrug stores there’s usually only a small stand with a handful of products left on display so I count myself reeeeally lucky if I find something I like, and I grab it there and then!

With this nail polish, I’ve been looking for a nudey-mushroom colour for ages and luckily enough my last trip to Superdrug saw me grasping this glamorous little bottle in my hand & thinking to myself; ‘I’ve been looking for a mushroom shade for ages’. At that exact same moment, the lyrics of the song being played on the in-store radio included the word ‘mushroom’ (can you believe it?! what song was that?!) so I knew I had to have it.


So here’s how MUA’s shade 19 turned out on my nails – the first coat produced a very sheer nude colour, this pic is the second coat and a third coat created a dusky-lilacy-mushroomy shade. I quite like them all actually – so that’s 3 coats over 3 days giving 3 slightly different looks! It wore pretty well too – I do a lot of washing up but it only chipped on day 4. In fact, the writing started coming off the bottle before the polish chipped on my nails! And all for £1, what a bargain.

  3. Hi cassiefairy! I got to this from the review you left on the MUA website – very helpful so thanks! I’m desperately after shade one myself – have you ever seen such a pretty midnight blue? And at only a pound it’s a total bargain too.
    Could the song you heard be this one by any chance?: (not mushroom but mushaboom – close enough!)

    • haha it must have been mushaboom then! thanks for your lovely comments and yes I’d love to get the midnight blue too – MUA is just too popular & sells out too quickly! let me know if you find it & email me a pic! x
