I get a bottle of Nails Inc Gatwick in my Cohorted beauty box a couple of months ago. I was pleased to see one of my favourite brands included but not so glad about the matte finish. I do have the Nails inc matte top coat which I use to change my polishes anyway sometimes so a red matte seems unnecessary.
The polish is a really orangey red and it goes on quite runny at first and is shiny then as it dries it turns in to a matte effect.
I always use a base coat to avoid staining my natural nails. This takes two coats of colour but it is quite runny so it is important to do thin layers or the cuticle can become flooded which is not a good look and can be difficult to tidy up. I usually finish my manicures with a top coat to help the nails last a bit longer but obviously it would defeat the point of the matte effect to add a shiny top coat!
These cost £11 individually but can be bought online a bit cheaper if you shop around. Each bottle is 10ml if you buy from the full sized round bottle style.
I liked this but decided I prefer red shiny nails, the matte did not do it for me with this colour so my bottle will probably not get used very much. It is still a brand I love though and my matte top coat is one of my favourite products.
Oooohh who thought of this little beauty!
I so love the effect of this on my nails and need more.
Love the way this brand names the nail varnishes and this is called WESTMINSTER BRIDGE.
This is a top coat to apply to the colour you are wearing and totally transforms it.
I not one for these fads that come and go or do anything radical with my nails. I like the clean, classy look of a red or black coat and go wild in the summer with other colours, what I mean I don't like dressing them up, then this came into my life via GLOSSYBOX and it was one of the best samples I think I've tried.
I honestly used to think these were gimmicks but it actually worked.
I was wearing black nail varnish when I tried this and in just one application of the brush it transformed my nail into a very polish, professional, matte look finish.
I think the strongest look was with the pink nail varnish I wore for a party and oh my goodness I love the matte effect it created.
It was quick to dry and I found that it was stronger than the paints they sell! It helped my nail varnish not to chip at all throughout the day or night.
This is a little pricey however at £15, but for the quality this is very good. If I had not tried this as a sample I doubt I would have but now I need to have a matte look in my makeup case ready. I guess you could say the GLOSSYBOX worked!
This is by far my favorite Nails inc product i have bought. I picked this nail varnish by chance as i was looking for a product which turned my shiny nail varnishes matte. You can either buy a coloured matte nail varnish or matte top coat. I decided on the matte top coat so i could use all my different coloured nail varnishes, not restricting me to just one colour.
The nail varnish comes is a matte glass bottle, which looks fogged up, with a silver lip. The nail varnish on its own is kind of a murky clear colour and is a thick consistency. The brush is of an average size, enabling you to paint you nails in an average of two or three strokes.
I started off painting my nails the shiniest colour i had which was black. I wanted to paint them with a really shiny coat so i could really see how shine changed to matte. I left my nails to dry completely then applied this top coat and fell in love with the result, it completely took all the shine out of my nail varnish. Where the top coat is quite thick a protects the colour underneath it take quite a few days before it begins to chip.
Overall i am so pleased i picked the matte coat and not the matte coloured nail varnish as it works so well and i got so much more use out of it, enabling to pick the colour im in the mood for and then turn it matte. I think the matte top coat is pretty good value for money at £12 as like i said you can use it with many nail varnishes. I would definitely recommend this product, i am so pleased i bought it.
