It’s random nail swatch day, and today they come courtesy of Nails Inc.
There are so many nail polish options around these days, special effects polishes etc. I just can’t keep up. If I can actually find the time to paint my nails (and it doesn’t get smudged instantly) then I like to have something bright and perky – cheerful isn’t it?!
Here are three picks from Nails Inc – Nail Jewellery in Sapphire (£11):
This sapphire true blue has a ton of multi sized glitters, large and small. Two coats gives decent coverage. I have to say I am drawn to glitters perhaps because I am not so great at getting perfect application and glitter is easy to apply and hides a multitude of sins. This is a fin colour to wear – it didn’t last long on my toes though, I would definitely recommend a good top coat with this one.
Special Effects 3D Glitter in Hammersmith (£11):
More uniform glitter in this one in different tones for the ‘3D effect’. I found this easier to apply than the first and it has a finer texture. Again, this hides a multitude of nail sins and you can not be so great at application and still end up with an ok nail with this product!
The Thames Crystal Cap Polish (£15):
This grey (is it supposed to be the same colour as the Thames?!) is a neutral cool grey which I quite like for a more natural nail. It looks more grey mauve on my nails, which I quite like, and applies well too. This lasted longer than the glitter polishes, of course the glitters have more ‘height’ making them for vulnerable to wear and tear!
