This is I <3 U from the recent Love Hearts collection from MUA. I wasn't keen on this when I first saw it, because I was like "Oh, the token nude, the typical nude, the everyone-goes-for-it nude." It's not often I admit I'm wrong (I am stubborn, but not enough to admit I'm not stubborn :P), but I was incredibly wrong.
Isn't it just the most gorgeous nude? It's a pinky-peach nude, with a strong milky undertone which makes it both elegant, pretty and cute at the same time. Although I'm medium skin-toned, I can imagine this working for most other skintones, as it's quite neutral in tone and it's not so pale that it would pull white on darker skintones.
Most of the time when I can't stop staring at my nails, it's because there's something glittery or in-your-face on them - rarely has a nude been able to do that, so major kudos to MUA for this gorgeous shade!
It wouldn't be a Let's MakeYuUp review without some whinging (not gonna lie :P), and for £2 there's not much whinging that's worth while. But I will forewarn that the picture above was with 4 coats, and layers were only applicable after the previous layer was completely dry. As the brush is round and kind of brittle, the application was quite streaky. That being said, because the formula is incredibly thin, layers dry incredibly fast, it's not a problem if you overload your brush with product so as to avoid too much contact between the nail and the brush, and even with 4 layers, it really doesn't feel or look that heavy.
To be honest with you, for £2 and such a gorgeous colour I wouldn't think twice to run out and get this (I'd get a back-up if cheaper nailpolishes didn't have a history of major clumpage). It's a gorgeous, romantic, cute and fun shade that will never get old :)
