Beauty Review: 17 Fast Finish Nail Polish in Fury

Ah, 17. I think this range was probably some of the first make-up I ever bought back when I was a teenager - and even now it's a brand I come back to more often than I'd like to admit, as it's well priced and has a good range of fashionable colours as well as more classic shades if you're in need of a cheap beauty fix. I've sung the praises of the 80s neon Poncho Pink before, but today I'm wheeling out something a bit more on-trend - Fury, a metallic shade from their Fast Fix line (17 has three different nail polish collections which regularly rotate their range of colours).

First thoughts are that it definitely lives up to its claim of being a one coat polish - the coverage was absolutely perfect after the first application, although I did do three coats for consistency with my other nail blogs. It also dries really quickly which is great if you're a bit pushed for time but still want to do your nails before you go out. The shade can be a little bit deceptive though as it almost has a duochrome feel to it - in the bottle it looks quite golden but when it's on it looks like more of a bronze.

As always base is Nails Inc Hyde Park and top coat is Seche Vite.

This probably seems too good to be true - it dries quickly, it doesn't streak, the coverage is fantastic and the range of shades are great. However, there is a fairly major catch: it's not exactly the most durable. I put this on last night and within 24 hours two of my nails had chipped majorly. That said, for £2.99 a botttle I suppose you can't complain.

I'd recommend this if you're hankering for a new nail polish but don't want to spend too much and aren't time-rich enough to do a full manicure, but it's definitely a formula for a quick fix before a night out or a special occasion.
