Nail Files: Nails Inc

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to share some nails inc 3D glitters with you. Nails inc does glitter the way it's supposed to be. They are densely packed and more often than not, you can get away with just one coat of glittery goodness.

First up is Marylebone.
Marylebone is the pastel pink from the collection. 
It's nearly impossible to show the purple mirco glitter in it.
The obvious is the silver and pink glitter. 

Up next is Maida Vale.
Maida Vale is described as a pastel silvery blue.
But honestly, I see it with purples as well!
This only required 1 coat of the polish. 

These polishes are amazing. They are densely packed and can be applied by just painting them on (unlike some glitter that needs to be dabbed). They have an incredibly drying time. That being said, they are thirsty for topcoat!!! They want it all and will stop at nothing. Ok ok I maybe exaggerating quite a bit but they do dry gritty without topcoat.

What do you think?

Until then my dear readers.

Hello my lovely readers,
I hope everyone is doing well. I'm still unpacking at my new apartment and it's been extremely time consuming. I've still been doing my nails. These are not the best pictures as they were taken with my iPhone.

I hope you all enjoyed these manis as I have enjoyed creating them!

Nail Files: Nails Inc

I feel like nails inc hasn't  gotten much attention or love. It is one of my top 3 nail brands. They have such a wide variety of colors and finishes. I love the bottles as well as the polish names. They are available through I have a friend in England that ships me polishes that are only available over seas. Enough of this plain text. Onward to the colors and photos!

Seven Dials is a soft yet vibrant jade green color. It only took 2 coats to achieve total opaqueness.
Seven Dials has a creme finish.

Foubert's Place has elements of grey, brown and dirty green. 
On the nails inc site, it's described as a cool grey khaki creme shade.
I used 2 coats.
Paddington verges on the almost black scale. 
It's a deep khaki grey creme.  I used 2 coats but perhaps needed i3 because there was some pulling near the cuticles.
My friend sent me this color and I haven't been able to find it on any site.
Porchester Place is a bright tangerine polish with hints of peach. 
The formula is on the thin side but not hard to work with at all.
I used 3 coats because of my ridge filled nails.
Westminster is a gorgeous purple shade with red tones. 
It applied so beautifully (like all nails inc polishes).
I used 2 coats.
Chelsea Emabankment.
2 coats. Small yellow gold glitter.
It didn't dry gritty.
I actually like the way it felt dry. 
I can;t really describe it. 

Hampstead Gardens. 2 coats. Honey Mustard creme. This is a color most consider ugly.
I love it! I don't really care if it doesn't go with my skin tone either. So pretty!
Cambridge Terrance is a silver liquid metal. 2 coats. Not a unique polish but an gorgeous formula!
Last but certainly not least.
Jubilee was released for the celebrations of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. 
It comes with a crystal cap and is limited edition. 
The colors represent Union Jack.
Blue, white and red densely packed glitter with silver micro glitter. 
This unfortunately is not available on
It can be purchased on

Which do you like?

Stay lacquered!

It's never too early for halloween

Hello my loves!
I hope this finds you all well. I've. Even super busy with work, moving and buying car. Feels like everything happened all at once! Things are beginning to wind down and I have somehow figured out to balance it all including blogging. I do miss blogging a lot.

I did this nail art last year but have decided to revisit and revise it. I love seeing how much I have improved.

I also did a googly eye manicure. I have gotten a lot of comments on the googly eye mani.
I am updating from my iPhone to see how the app is. I hope it posts well!!
