NOTD: Boots Seventeen Fury

Normally I like a duochrome to be wham-bam-in-your-face colour-shifting mayhem. This one's subtle, though. It's basically a warm gold, but persuaded by just the right quality of light, it assumes an ever-so-slightly-different warm green cast. I don't think anyone but me really noticed this during the week I wore it for, but that was OK. It was a duochrome experience between me myself and I. 

It's a well-behaved three-coater. Not metallic enough to present brush-mark issues, and not sheer enough to be thin or globby, either, it's pleasant if unremarkable to apply. This polish carries a claim of single-coat application that's dry in 50 seconds. That's tosh. But it's certainly not a bad polish.

As you can see from these pictures of the 4-day-old manicure, it's moderately vulnerable to tip-wear and has also developed a few hair-line cracks. It didn't want to chip or flake though, and given its £2.99 price-point, well out-performs reasonable expectations.

You can buy this badger at Boots, where it's currently part of a 3 for 2 offer

Is this polish organic? I only want organic beauty products.
