REVIEW: Aldi Lacura Nail Polish

During a quick stop at my local Aldi recently I decided to treat myself to a new nail polish, as the colour caught my eye – it would match the top I was planning to wear to a job interview that week (no- got down to the last two, then rejected. Boo.)

Now admittedly, £1.99 is more than I would normally spend on anything in Aldi, except possibly wine, so this felt like a big splashy purchase for me in the circumstances. However, in the grand scheme of things I can accept that it is a reasonably priced treat.

I have to say, I was impressed by the quality of the polish too. It did not disappoint. The colour was as I expected from the bottle, and the coverage was pretty good. It had a good consistency and nice opacity, but for my tastes I preferred to apply two coats to get a good consistent finish.

Having applied it, it lasted well. After 3 days, I only had two small chips and was able to keep the nail polish on without it looking annoyingly rubbish for about 5 days in total. I thought that was pretty hard wearing for such a cheap product, especially as I was at the gym and out and about doing all my normal stuff during that time.

For the price then, I don’t think you could ask for much more. There was a limited selection of colour options in my Aldi, about 5 or 7 different options I think. However, if you like the look of one of the colours I say go for it. For value and relative quality I can’t really give anything but 10 Extreme Points. Cheap and cheerful.
