You get what you pay for
I find that MUD nail polish is very inconsistent. Some of the colours, in particular the lighter colours (which you wouldn't expect to apply well), are great. However, I always have trouble getting an even and pigmented coat of any MUD dark coloured nail polish onto my nail successfully. The MUD glitter polishes are great, and so are the orange/pink/green polishes. The blue and purple polishes are very opaque though, and no matter how many coats I put on my nail, the colour pay-off just isn't there. MUD nail polish is a bit hit and miss if if you ask me.
If you are experimenting, but I wouldn't rely on it for a special occasion or in a rushed situation or touch up.

Extremely happy with MUD nail polish.
When my local Woolworths Store had a sale on MUD nail polish, I bought 9 of them at $2 each. There was a container full of them and there were many beautiful colours. Because I do my own nail art, I chose three light pastel shades (peach, apricot, green), 2 medium shades (blue, turquoise), 2 bright shades (lime green, bright orange), a dark shade (grape) and a frosted wine shade.
I love the blue shade "baby blue" and use it a lot in my nail art as it is such a pretty shade of blue.
For a cheap nail polish, the quality of MUD nail polish is good. It has a thin consistency but 2 coats are sufficient to give opaque, smooth coverage. They also wear well but then I always use a top coat as habit.
I love MUD nail polish for its cheapness, size : 13 ml , the colours and quality. There are so many beautiful designs that I can create using just these 9 nail polish shades in different combinations. The polish drying time is fairly reasonable too.
If you are a person who loves using Ulta3 nail polish, you will find that MUD nail polish is just as good too.
I never regret my decision to buy practically all the colours available when I saw them on special at $2.
Ideal for a person who loves doing their own nail art.

I like to try cheaper nail polishes as I find that they can surprise when it comes to colour, quality and wear. The MUD nail polish range is no different, it may be cheap but it is surprisingly good quality. I have "Paparazzi", which is a gold glitter polish. In the past I have found glitter polishes to be a little difficult to work wit, however I found the MUD polish was easy to apply and it did not clump up on the nail. What really surprised me was that it didn't require many coats, 1 to 2 light coats was enough for a strong colour.
I would consider adding different colours from the MUD range to my nail collection in the future.

My favourite colour is Pinkalot, which comes out as a nice dark pink, although you do need to apply many layers to get the darker pink that you can see on the bottle. When you do apply it, the colour gets paler as it dries. It is quite runny and thin, and it easily drips onto my fingers and it is hard to get off. I love the result that I get after I apply 3-4 layers as it is a pink that is not to dark or light.

Great cheap nail pilish
Pretty good nail polish for the small price tag! It's not high end polish by any means but what do you expect for$3. Honestly does do a good job and the coverage of these polishes are somewhat better than the middle range polishes I've tried before. A little thin and runny but you just ensure you wipe the brush on the bottle so little remains before application and build up a few coats. Looks nice on and wears well for a basic polish.

Great Quality & Price
I recently had my first manicure and pedicure in over a decade and it inspired me to try out painting my nails again. I bought this one because it wasn’t a big investment if I got bored with it. I got it from Woolies in the ‘nudely now’ shade for $3. I actually prefer the shade on as it dried looking slightly lighter and more pink than how it looks in the bottle. I applied it with a base coat then two coats of this polish – I couldn’t be bothered with top coat at that point although I will use one next time. It’s opaque after two coats and has a glossy finish to it. It has actually chipped less and lasted longer than the professionally applied expensive nail polish I got at my mani/pedi, even without a top coat. So for me this was a success and I would definitely recommend giving it a try. Once I get better at applying nail polish I will try out their darker shades and see how I go.

I absolutely love these nail polishes. After just a couple of coats you get a nice opaque smooth colour on your nails.
The polish leaves a nice shine and are very easy to paint your nails with. The polish doesnt start to dry that quick that the application becomes hard and they even look good with one quick coat of polish. I have never tried wearing them without a top coat but i put a top coat on and i dont experience any chipping for a few days and even then a touch up is all you need and it still looks great :)

Great! Awesome cheap buy that has good results
I have Glitterazzi which is a sparkly glittery rainbow effect and Nudely Now which is a lovely mushroom nude colour. The sparkly one is easy to apply and dries quick. The nude one you have to do 2 or 3 think coats as it is a little streaky and it takes around 3 thin coats to build to a solid colour. It has pretty good shine factor, dries quickly and comes in a value packed 13ml bottle - so cheap for how much product you get. Compares well to more expensive products, pity my local store has hardly any but when I get my Woolies online shop that has the full range. Really happy with this one!
Opaque colours you need to build the coverage with around 3 thin coats, don't try to do 2 thicker ones or you will get streaks
Anyone who wants great value and quality that compares with more expensive brands

I love MUD nailpolishes!
I have Chili Pepper and Nudely Now which are my favourite nailpolishes in my collection :)
They are a great consistency, more on the runny side but dry incredibly quickly.
Whether or not you judge a nail polish on the brush or texture, I would say this polish has an amazing colour result which is what I'm after!
No need to use a heap on the brush, just build it up and have fun :)
Nude is great for every day wear, for work or if you don't like obvious colour...
The Chili red, I wore out to an engagement party, it really pops :)
