Nails Inc. Piccadilly Circus Polish
Advantages: Goes on nicely with no streaking
Disadvantages: Just the price
The months leading up to my wedding last year I got gel overlays done on my nails in order to grown them and keep them looking nice for the day, I did continue this for a month after my wedding and had the last lot done in September, however I then decided that it was getting a bit expensive at £30 every 3 weeks and with a baby on the way didn't really want to be spending that out on my nails every few weeks, I am actually trained in manicure etc so can actually do them myself so I decided that I was going to grow my nails naturally without the gel. Once all of the gel finally came off with a bit of picking, my nails were a bit of a mess so I had to keep them painted for several weeks, this was quite close to Christmas and the nail varnish I was using was really old and starting to get a bit past it so I asked my parents to get me some new nail varnishes for Christmas, I didn't mind what make or colour just something pretty. they actually brought me several different brands one of which was Nails Inc, I had heard a lot of good things about this particular brand so was keep to give it a go.
The Nails Inc Nail varnish comes in a short yet wide rounded glass bottle, this allows you to see the colour of the nail varnish inside, there is nothing fancy about the packaging, it has the words "Nails Inc London" written on the front of the bottle in white with the colour written in small white lettering right at the bottom which in my case is "Piccadilly Circus". The only other information on the bottle appears on the back and includes contact details for Nails Inc should you require it and a symbol to show that this product is flammable. The bottle has a large chunky shiny silver lid which simply screws on and off of the bottle, the lid is actually the same size as the glass section of the bottle doubling the size of the whole thing.
As I have mentioned the Nails Inc nail varnish I have is called Piccadilly Circus, this is basically a darkish red colour, in the bottle the nail varnish looks like a bit of a pinky red however once applied to your nails and fully dried it does look like a darker red with no pink in it at all. I decided to try this colour out on my toe nails first as I had never tried this brand and wasn't sure how I would get on with it.
Upon removing the lid I had a quick look at the brush used to apply the nail varnish, as with most nail varnishes the brush is attached to the lid with the lid forming the handle. The brush is quite long meaning that you can get right to the bottom of the bottle thus not wasting any of the product, the bristles that you actually apply the nail varnish with are also quite long and the whole thing is quite thin, personally I like this when it comes to a nail varnish brush as the long thin bristles means that you can easily and smoothly apply the varnish to your nails in just two or three clean sweeps eliminating streaks forming in the nail varnish. The nail varnish was of a good consistency, it was not too thick and quite runny which again is ideal to achieve a good finish. I applied the Nails Inc nail varnish to my toe nails and was very impressed with how smoothly it applied, I could easily cover each nail with just two or three sweeps of the brush and there were no visible streaks at all, also the thin brush meant that I could go right to the edges of my nails without going over the edges onto my skin.
When I paint my nails I usually apply a couple of coats to get a nice rich colour, however with my Piccadilly Circus Nails Inc I could actually get away with just one coat, which on my toe nails I did, the colour looked nice and bright and it covered perfectly, it was not patchy at all, normally when I just apply one coat of nail varnish it does not fully cover and looks quite dull and patchy, however when I had finished after just one coat my nails were fully covered and looked lovely and shiny. I have since used this colour on my finger nails, I did apply two coats to these purely as I felt it may last longer due to my hands being in and out of water and the nail varnish generally getting more wear, however I was just as pleased with the rich red colour and the coverage as I was when applying it to my toe nails.
After applying the nail varnish the next thing was going to be to see how long it lasted, as this was not a cheap nail varnish I was hope it was going to be hardwearing and long lasting. After wearing the Nail varnish for a few days I was pleased to see that it was wearing very well, there were a couple of chips in the ends of my finger nails, however I did expect this after a few days as on your hands nail varnish gets a lot more wear with being in and out of water and everyday activities, however my toe nails were still in perfect condition and had not chipped at all, I was extremely happy with this as I hate having to constantly touch in my nail varnish every day, this would be an ideal nail varnish to wear on your toes for a holiday as it would with stand all of the general wear and tear your nails go through. I didn't need to reapply the nail varnish to my fingers but simply touched in the chips and you would never know they had been there. When I did finally remove my Nails Inc nail varnish I was a little concerned that I hadn't applied a base coat and that my nails were going to be stained red, however this was not the case my nails had not been stained at all, again I was very pleased with the results.
As I have mentioned I received my Nails Inc nail varnish as a present however their on line shop is selling this for £11.00, personally I think it is rather expensive for a nail varnish, my Mum didn't actually pay this much for it, however I'm not sure I would be prepared to pay this amount of money for a bottle of nail varnish. However it is of an excellent quality, it is long lasting and leaves your nails looking in lovely condition, the colour is rich and it is pretty chip resistance although it does not make any claims to be. I would also say that this particular nail varnish is long lasting as you can get away with just one coat, however this may not be the case with lighter shades. To some extent I would say yes the nail varnish is worth the money as it is of such a high quality, however I still think that it is a bit over priced and I'm not sure I could bring myself to pay that amount of money for nail varnish. Obviously the price does depend on where you purchase it from.
I would definitely recommend Nails Inc Piccadilly Circus nail varnish, it is a high quality nail varnish that is long lasting, very resistant to everyday life and is very easy to apply. The nail varnish gives a lovely smooth and shiny finish to your nails and the red colour of this particular shade is very rich. Personally I think this is a colour you could get away with wearing on both your finger nails and toe nails so it is very versatile, it would be an ideal nail varnish to wear when on holiday. For me the only disadvantage of Nails Inc is the price tag, in my opinion it is a bit over priced for a nail varnish and I do not think I would buy this at full price, however if you can find it a bit cheaper than it is definitely worth it and is a high quality product, other than the price this is definitely a product I would recommend to anyone.
Summary: Very nice polish but a bit pricey
