Primark Nail Polish Review – Cheap but Good Quality!

Hey guys

I know a lot of people are nervous to buy cosmetics from Primark.  The general thinking is that it can’t be good if it’s so cheap.  Well from my experience, that’s not always true!  I’ve had a variety of cosmetics from Primark and with the exception of a couple of lipsticks, they have all been surprisingly good.  I currently use a Primark False Lash Effect mascara and I actually prefer it to the way more expensive (and very hyped) Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara!


This is just a quick review of a Primark nail polish I picked up quite a few months ago but haven’t got round to using yet.  Sadly I can’t tell you the name of the shade, as it doesn’t have one!  It just has a code on the label: 5B19B.  However hopefully the photos will help you track if down if you like it!

This nail polish was £1.  Yep that’s right, just £1!  It is a grey-nude shade with a subtle gold shimmer.  It looks quite sparkly in the bottle but is more muted once applied.  Definitely work-safe!


The varnish is a really nice texture, quite thick without being gloopy.  It applies evenly and has a nice, wide brush so it only takes a couple of strokes to cover the nail.  I applied three coats here, but it would actually have been ok with just two if you’re in a rush.  This is photo is without a top coat, and it has a nice, glossy finish.  Primark have a large range of colours and finishes, and I will definitely be giving some other shades a try.

Have you tried any Primark nail products?  If so, what did you think of them?  Let me know below, or follow me on social media!

    I haven’t tried any if their makeup but mainly because the one near me nevervseems to have colours I want in them. I will keep looking when I go and that colour is so pretty, I’ll probably get that at least if they have any of it.

        It’s fairly big and has a good range of everything else, there’s just one small stand for makeup and nail varnishes. Might have a look around other parts of the shop though as I don’t tend to go everywhere, they might have them in a far corner hidden away somewhere.
