A good friend bought me some new Nails Inc. nail polishes for Christmas and I couldn't wait to use them. The first one that I got to try was the limited edition Motcomb Street. Nails Inc. polishes are pretty expensive considering they're £11 each for a single bottle so they're not something I would buy myself very often. However, Nailsinc.com often have them on offer at 3 for £22 which is basically 3 for 2. This nail polish comes in the typical Nails Inc bottle which is quite small and made from glass. The lid is metallic silver and unscrews to come off. On the see through bottle is the Nails Inc. logo along with 'limited edition' printed below. The back of the bottle has on it the company address along with showing that there is 10ml of liquid inside. If you turn the bottle upside down, you can see the name of the nail polish on the underneath. Motcomb Street is actually a really dark navy blue nail polish although I originally thought it was black. It wasn't until I started painting my nails that I realised I had gotten the colour wrong. As you paint on your first coat, the colour looks like a mixture between a strange green colour and blue but don't be put off, the second coat makes all the difference. The brush used with this nail polish is just like any other and generally takes 2-3 strokes to cover one nail which isn't too bad. The nail polish itself is quite thin so be careful how much you have on your brush at any one time. This isn't too bad if you're doing one of your bigger nails but I did my pinkie finger first and ended up with way too much. What I really love about this nail polish is how quickly it dried. Although it isn't a quick drying product, the first coat dried in a few minutes which made it possible to do the second coat quite quickly. After the second coat, all of my nails were completely dry and not tacky at all after about 10 minutes. This polish is also extremely easy to remove which I was glad to see. I use acetone to remove my nail polish instead of general nail polish remover which does make it a bit easier than normal. Using cotton wool pads, each nails needed one quick swipe over, removing all of the nail polish. Although I do think this is an expensive nail polish, I love the colour and I think it will quickly become a favourite.
I picked this varnish up in a bundle of colours off of eBay recently. Motcomb street is a dark blue, navy nail polish. Nails Inc products are formulated with the latest professional technologies and are self-levelling on the nail, which helps those who aren't the best painters! Nails Inc products, including Motcomb Street can be purchased online from Nails Inc, Harvey Nichols, Debenhams and some Boots stores. This varnish has an RRP of £11 for 10ml. The polish has a good consistency, it's not too thin so it streaks and applies sparingly; equally it is not too thick and gloopy. The thin, smooth brush loads just enough product for an even application for each nail. I apply this over a base coat and find that coat 1 of Motcomb street dries within minutes. A second coat is needed for an opaque colour on the nail, and this applied effortlessly, the polish glides onto the nails. The colour obtained from this varnish is very much identical to that in the bottle. In the home, in artificial or poor lighting, the nails look very dark-virtually black. When the nails are seen in good, natural light, the navy shade is obvious. It is a modern take on gothic nails, and in my opinion looks very en-vogue. Last time I wore this I didn't use a top-coat, and I found the varnish to last 3 days before it started to wear off around the tips of my nails, but there was still a glossy shine to the nail. When this is worn with a top-coat, this can last up to 5-6 days. I thought this colour would be a pain to remove, but it is easily removed without staining the nail (when worn with a base coat), I was pleasantly surprised by this due to depth of colour of the varnish. Overall, this is a lovely varnish for those who prefer dark varnishes, it is a refreshing change to black polish. The formulation if this, make application simple and effortless, provide long lasting results.
