Nails Inc. Jermyn Street Polish
Advantages: Long lasting, lovely colour
I received this nail varnish a while ago. It was a birthday present and came in a set of 4 beautiful varnishes. I love painting my nails and was thrilled to have received this as a gift, particularly as I know that Nails Inc have a great reputation and are a little on the pricey side.
So, the product I am reviewing is a full size 10ml bottle. It is, as per the photo, a clear bottle which shows through the lovely colour of the 'Jermyn Street' varnish and the top half is a chunky silver coloured lid. I find the Nails Inc bottles very attractive and am getting quite a collection now!
Jermyn Street is a kind of taupe/mushroom colour, and I have to admit, I wasn't convinced by it at first. I used all of the other shades that came in my set, leaving trying this one out until last. It's not that I didn't like it, it's just very different to my usual pinks, corals and purples that I normally wear.
The lid simply unscrews to reveal a brush attached to the centre of the lid, which is the perfect size for applying this product. As with all Nails Inc varnishes, it goes on very easily - I do always wear a base layer of clear, which helps as well. I used 2 coats as it's quite a pale colour and I really wanted to ensure it lasted. I finished off with another coat of clear and I was ready to go.
It dried relatively quickly and doesn't smell any more than any other normal kind of nail varnish. The end result was beautiful and I was amazed at just how much I loved the colour. I found that as it was a kind of 'nude' colour, it made my fingers look longer and just looked stunning on. I had so many compliments when I wore this nail varnish, everyone was asking me what it was. I found that I couldn't stop looking at my nails as it was just so lovely!
The varnish lasted well and I managed to get a week's wear out of it without too much damage atall. It lasted a lot better than most of my other, cheaper products.
I have just had a look on the Debenhams website at the prices and I believe that the pack of 4 I got was priced at £25. Individual pots of polish are £11 each. This is much more than I would usually choose to spend on a nail varnish, although they do last really well and have a fantastic range of colours. After lots of experience of nail varnishes, I can easily say that it is clear to see Nails Inc are worth the extra that they cost as the quality shows. I have recently learned that TK Maxx sometimes sell Nails Inc polishes, so it may be worth checking as you could get a bargain.
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend Nails Inc in general, and Jermyn Street more specifically. It's a lovely coloured polish which is of great quality. A little pricey, but worth the investment to have a few colours to treat yourself every now and again. Or you could always ask for it for a birthday pressie...
Summary: Worth the investment.
