"This is a good acrylic eggshell fir the price. I use it when a fast drying time is needed and this does the job. Two coats over a good quality undercoat is sufficient for a good finish. Downside is that it really needs to be applied with a roller as brushing doesn't give your piece a smooth and even finish and you will be repeating coats endlessly with a brush. But I find this is a case with all of the acrylic eggshells I have used so it's not limited to this budget product... Applies with a roller you can get a good smooth and even finish with two coats. Will use this as my fall to paint when a fast drying time negates the use of an oil based finish."

Review 4 for No Nonsense Trade Acrylic Eggshell Emulsion Paint Brilliant White 2.5Ltr
"I paid more for the Acrylic Trade, hoping that the extra money spent would save my precious time. Wrong... I thinned to a perfect consistency for flow
I then used a £7 tool (1.5") afer pre-wetting, and filing the stock.
Even then; I struggled to apply sufficient product to achieve either a smooth finish, or a good opacity. Despite the expensive tool, thinning (only about 5%) and excessive application (due to poor opacity) even then it just dried in lines - and never settled flat.
I left it for over a week, thinking a second-coat was the answer?
Tried sanding down with flower-paper, the base coat just rubbed off - due to poor adhesion. (Like trying to sand down "cling-film")
I then attempted to put a Second coat on the small areas that had actually taken. They " Still Wragged Up" !! What kind of of paint can't re-cover on its-self after a whole week of drying???
Save your money and time. Stick to an oil-based eggshell.! It will flow better, and dry flatter.
Definitely the worst paint product I have ever attempted to use."
