Product Review: Pupa Bright Nail Polish Fixative

Name: Bright Nail Polish Fixative
Brand: Pupa
Size: 5ml
Price: €6,90

From Pupa’s website:
It creates an ultra-bright film to protect nail polish on fingernails, so that it lasts longer.

What I liked:
– gives nails a shiny finish
– makes nail polish last longer
– the packaging
– the price

What I didn’t like:
– nothing really

A few months ago, Pupa released a nail care line featuring top coats, base coats, cuticle pens, nail files and everything else you need to take proper care of your nails and create beautiful manicures. The fist thing I managed to buy from it (which wasn’t easy as the line’s selling so well that at least half the products are always out of stock when I go to the shop) was the Bright Nail Polish Fixative.

The Bright Nail Polish Fixative is simply a shiny top coat. It’s very easy to use: just like with any other top coat, simply apply it on top of nail polish once it has dried. This top coat provides a very shiny and brilliant film on the nails that highlights the color and makes it stand out just that little bit more. Needless to say, because of its shiny finish, it is not the right product to apply on top of matte polishes though. :)

In addition, this top coat also helps polish last longer. Whenever I use it, I notice that nail polish remains intact on my nails for at least 5 days before starting to chip a bit, which is not an easy feat on me. After all, I use my hands a lot for typing, housework etc and I just have to compulsively wash them 50 times a day so as a result, I’m lucky if a nail polish lasts 3 days on me. But if you treat your hands more gently than I do, this top coat could easily keep your polish chip-free for at least a week.

To be honest, there really isn’t anything wrong with this product but I can’t say that it has blown me away either. It’s simply a very shiny top coat that does what it is supposed to do. Nothing more, nothing less. The price is also quite cheap so if you wanna give this one a go, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Available at: Pupa counters

Summary
Pupa Bright Nail Polish Fixative is a top coat that provides a shiny finish to your nail polish, intensifying its color a little while helping to make it last for 5 or more days without chipping. The packaging is cute and the price cheap.

      Trisha, I wish its price was lower too. Although considering how expensive cosmetics are in Europe, this is pretty cheap. :)

      Makeup Morsels, yay indeed! I agree with you on the need of a quick-dry top coat too. I wouldn’t say this is the fastest top coat I used, but it doesn’t dry pretty quickly.
