Disadvantages: Chips easily and is very expensive
-- Reasons for buying --
I have used many different brands of nail polishes in the past and find it very difficult to find one that is long lasting and for a reasonable price. This was quite expensive, but I had read so many positive reviews based on this product. So on my travels, I popped into Boots and came across this gorgeous colour!
-- Appearance of the polish --
This polish comes in a glass transparent bottle, with a silver screw-able lid. On the front of the polish, 'nails inc', with 'london' underneath is clearly displayed. The lid is very good and keeps the polish secure and safe from spillages. The bristles on the application brush are an average length and surprisingly soft, which I do believes affects the outcome of the polish in a positive way. The shade of the colour, is a beautiful pinky red. I have never recognised a colour similar to this before, so I was very enthusiastic to try it.
-- Application --
It's very easy to apply, I simply remove any old nail polish, trim and file my nails and then continue to evenly coat both hands. The polish dries very quickly, within a couple of minutes and then after I continue to apply a second coat. The colour is very true to what you see in the bottle, I have had past experiences where the colour looks different in bottle, to on your nails.
It is also extremely easy to remove, no harsh scrubbing with cotton pads and nail polish remover for this one. A simple few strokes is all you need! I would definitely recommend using a base coat before applying the colour, as it did tend to stain my nails a little pink, which didn't take long to fade, but doesn't have any benefits for your nails.
-- My experience --
I found this polish a joy to use, the colour is absolutely gorgeous. The application brush makes it easy to evenly coat your nails and achieve flawless results. The colour is very flattering and isn't too in your face, so subtle enough to wear for any occasion. I also found that it dried very quickly compared to other polishes I have used.
I did find a couple of downfalls with the product one being the price of the polish, which I will list below and the other being that it chips within the first couple of days. I do tend to bite my nails, which I think may have caused it to chip more easily. When I applied it to my friends nails, she said hers didn't start to crack until the third day, which isn't much better. I then also applied a top coat to my nails to see if this made a difference, the results lasted a lot longer, so that would be definitely worth trying.
-- Price and Availability --
This is available in most drug stores and online stores. I purchased this from Boots for £11. I find the price to be extremely expensive for the 10ml you receive. I do really like the colour and only spending it once every so often isn't too bad, but if it was more regular, I probably wouldn't purchase from this brand.
Overall I absolutely love this colour, it's extremely flattering and very subtle. It's very versatile, so you can wear it with pretty much anything. The price is a little to expensive for me, so I wouldn't make a habit of buying nails inc nail polishes, but as I'm very fond of this colour, I will re-purchase when I need to.
Summary: Lovely colour, quite pricey and chips quite easily!
