I was recommended this by one of my friends after my nails kept getting stained from using brightly coloured nail polishes. I bought this in Debenhams for £7 for a 10ml bottle. Nails Inc state that this nail polish is a liquid silk wrap for the nails which will protect the nails from breakage and staining as well as hiding imperfections in the nail. The real silk contained in the nail polish is supposed to bond the nail together mending peeling, splitting and ridges. To use this nail polish you simply apply one layer on clean, dry nails. It comes out white and paints on the nails a pale white colour. The nail polish didn't take long to dry and I was ready to apply a colour on top within about 2-3 minutes. After using this nail polish I noticed that my nails seemed stronger, it really feels like a luxury treat for your nails. It also made my colour last longer. Nails Inc do state that this polish enhances your colour and makes it brighter. It did make my colour easier to apply as it seemed to smooth out ridges leaving a nice surface to paint on. I would recommend this to anyone with weak nails looking for a treat as you can use it alone without colour, although it does look a little odd on the nails because of the pale white colour. But mainly I would reocmmend this to prevent staining, I paint my nails all sorts of bright colours and I have found that it stops colours like green, yellow and orange making my nails look like I smoke 20 a day! This is a brilliant buy, as I have said in my other Nails Ince reviews I normally use cheap nail colours and spend more on the base and top coats to get a professional finish.
Nails inc colour enhancing base coat With my poorly finger hopefully on the mend (the bandage is off) it's time to start on my nails again. As a treat to myself I bought several of the Nails Inc products in the hope that the damage can be repaired. WHAT DOES IT DO? This is the base coat which is apparently a silk enriched base coat for instant nail strength. It can be used to prevent staining of the nail from colour or environmental effects, and as a smooth base for longer lasting polish, and will intensify nail colour for a vibrant colour. The base coat also promises to help the removal of polish so no more stained cuticles! PRODUCT AND PACKAGING... The base coat comes in a white box with information on the back. When I open the box there is a normal type of nail polish bottle, nice and chunky with a big silver screw on/off lid. The brush is the same as I would expect with nail polish and it smells like nail polish. The base coat looks white in the bottle and on the brush and when I apply it, it does look slightly white, but when it dries, it goes almost clear but if I look closely, it does have a very very slight white tinge but only if you know that it's there. For anyone looking at nails without a coat of colour, nails look as though they have been painted but not with any definite colour. USING IT... Apply to clean dry nails underneath your usual nail polish, and finish with a top coat. Use whenever you reapply nail polish PRICE AND AVAILABILITY... The base coat costs £11.00 for an 8ml bottle and is available from chemists and also from www.nailsinc.com, where the other products can be ordered online VERDICT... This base coat goes on easily and dries quickly, leaving a smooth base coat ready for nail polish. When a coloured polish is applied, it goes on smoothly and does make the nail colour look nice and vibrant without any loss or change of colour. I also like to wear it without any colour over the top and find that it gives a nice clear and smooth finish with the very slightest hint of the fact that I am wearing nail polish. It also serves to strengthen my nails so that when i do reapply and add a colour, i find that my nails are growing nicely. The promise that the base coat will aid the removal of nail polish has proved to be true and I find that nail colour can be removed easily and effectively with no residue round my cuticles. Using the products together is having a good effect on my nails but i think thsi would be equally effective used with any nail polishes. A great product to strengthen nails and one which i would recommend. Thanks for reading. Daniela xx
