Makeup Revolution Nail Geek Dreams
This is Dreams, from the new(ish) brand Makeup Revolution, which launched online and exclusively in Superdrug stores this year. The Nail Geek range of 45 nail polishes launched last month and they cost just £1.49 each online at the moment. Plus, you can buy collections of five polishes for the price of just four. So that makes them even better value.
I have several polishes for review, but I don’t like to post them all in one go, so you’ll see them gradually as I wear them over the next couple of weeks.
Dreams comes from the Cool Nails collection and is a pale blue. It was a little thick and the brush was quite scratchy, so it didn’t leave the smoothest finish. However, top coat completely negated this minor niggle and the polish smoothed out beautifully with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. It has a very slight scent, but there’s no mention of this on the website. It’s not unpleasant in any way, but it did surprise me. It makes for a nice surprise though. Inexpensive polishes like this can sometimes be rather stinky, and this had a pleasant odour rather than a cheap, chemically smell.
Although my brush on this particular bottle was a bit scruffy, this hasn’t been the case with the other bottles I have, and I do rather like the brushes. They have a long, thickish and flat wand, a bit like the Sally Hansen brushes, but with shorter and non-curved bristles.
These polishes really are excellent value for £1.49 (or less). It’s worth noting too that they come in bottles of 12ml, which is more than you get from most of the budget, British brands available in Boots and Superdrug. Barry M polishes are 10ml; Rimmel are 8ml; Beauty UK are 8ml and 9ml; 2True are 7ml and 10ml; and MUAs, although cheap at £1, are practically half the volume of the Nail Geek polishes at 6.2ml. I think only Collection matches Nail Geek for quantity of polish in the bottle, and they’re double the price. Models Own bottles are larger – at 14ml in size – but again, they cost much more at £5.
This manicure wore supremely well. I wore it for four days with no chips at all, which represents outstanding longevity for me.

I haven’t seen them in stores either, but you seem to have the best stocked Superdrug and Boots in the country, so I’m sure they’ll be there near you.
