Tesco Beauty Freebies regularly have freebies to give away and all you have to do is sign up and answer a few questions.
A lot of people have received a mascara which doesn't sound that impressive so I was surprised when I opened the envelope to find a nail polish. Tesco have accidentally sent me two packages so I received two polishes, and luckily in two different shades!

They're gorgeous:

Velvet and Shock. Both 11ml.
Velvet is hard to describe but I'll try my best: Shimmery bronze with red and mauve undertones.
Shock: Red with a lot of purple and fuchsia undertones.

Here are some swatches: (Quickly applied to nails, that's why they're a little messy.)

All you need is one coat, but I always do two out of habit.
These are perfect Autumn/Winter shades and I cannot wait to use them so look out for a few nail posts with these bad boys in!
It's Tesco so I doubt these will be expensive :)



  1. velvet looks super awesome. and you;re right, the mascara is boring, i got it in my pack and you can't even tell it's on your lashes :-<

  2. I got the nail polish in velvet - it's not really a colour i'd go for but i'll definitely be trying it out :)

  3. Thanks for sharing this info, I never knew about this! Those colours look lovely! xxx

  4. Wow that Velvet colour is lovely! I never knew about these surveys x

  5. shock looks amazing! how much are they? xx

  6. Phoebs: I've just looked and the 7ml ones are around £3 but these are 11ml so I think they'll be £3-4 x

  7. Wow, the shades are nice and the pigmentation is great!:D

    Thanks for the swatches!:D
