I have an obsession and that obsession is nail varnish. I can’t help buying them (Just this week I’ve 3 new ones on order!) whenever I’m out or shopping online. I don’t think my Nail Of The Day posts have even touch the edge of my collection but every time I pick out a new one I’ve not tried I do like to try and swatch it for you all.

I do love 17 Fast Finish nail varnishes, I think they are excellent value for money and on my nails seems to last quite well too. The finishes are generally quite glossy which is good (If you do like a gloss finish, which I do) and they dry quickly too.

Today I thought I would share with you Knockout Red – I’ve actually had this since the 17 Launch of the Miami Pop Collection last year (Review and Swatches here), but I’d forgotten about this free gift and just left it in a bag! So for your viewing pleasure, here’s my sexy vixen nails today!

The top image is most accurate but as you can see there is very little difference between either.

This is a rush red, what I call a true red. Not too dark or light and more of a blue tone than orange. Its what my other half would call a ‘Slutty’ red.

The finish is nice and glossy (Images/Swatches taken without top coat on) and 2 coats gives you really good coverage.

17 nail varnishes are affordable and come in an array of colours, I often find they can last as well as some high end brands and at a massive fraction of the cost! Although my bottle here was a freebie, they are usually £2.99 each! Bargain!

If you have a Boots near you they are also on offer at present – 2 for £4! I know where I’ll be going when I go to town next.

Do you think its a Knockout Red?

Lots of Love,

Mel xxxx
