Prim + Proper Nail Polishes featuring Victoria Violet, Eh? and Whistler Winter - Review and Swatches

Just in time for #ManiMonday, are these beautiful, longwearing polishes from Prim+Proper. This Canadian brand, exclusive to London Drugs, is  so impressive in terms of wear time. There is literally no chipping and it lasts a full week. And I love that packaging!! Its looks very high end at an affordable price. More on these, on today's blog!

WHISTLER WINTER
This icy pinkish white is beautiful and reminds me of winter weddings. Its a lovely shade that goes to full opacity with three coats and is reminiscent of the glistening snow when sun shines on it.

EH? 
It is creme finish, blush pink nude that is so hard for my camera to fully capture in the swatches below. This shade, like every nude shade, had slight issues with brushing. I needed to be careful to avoid that from happening. This needs 3 coats to get opaque and its the kind of nude that I can never get bored off. Its not very taupe, not very blush, just the right amount of both shades and it looks beautiful! Every coat dries pretty fast so its easy to reach 3 coats within 15-20 minutes.

VICTORIA VIOLET
This stunning creme finish violet shade was part of London Drugs' UltraViolet collection to celebrate Pantone's Color of the Year for 2018. I love this shade! It goes with every outfit and it is so spring like, yet sophisticated and wearable for any occasion.

Each of these polishes are easy to apply and are long wearing and chip resistant. They dry pretty fast on nails, which allows me to quickly apply a second or third coat and get done with my manicure in 15-20 minutes. The quality of these polishes is comparable to more higher priced nail lacquers and I strongly feel that Prim + Proper has much better quality and performance than my OPI polishes. I was looking for an affordable nail polish brand as I got sick of the underperformance from OPIs and other medium range brands of nail polishes. I am so happy to discover these because it makes doing my own manicures so much more affordable and fun. They have an amazing range of colors to pick from and I already have my eyes on the maroons and reds! :) 

Prim+Proper nail lacquers are available at London Drugs for only C$9.99
