Nails Inc St James Park

The name of this week’s polish is a bit of a homage to the cathedral on the hill in my hometown (even after yesterday’s abysmal result!). Today I have chosen Nails Inc St James Park for my manicure and pedicure, and as a proud Geordie it couldn’t be anymore apt.

St James Park is a bright pink with a hint of coral, it is stunningly shiny and I adore it. The colour goes on smoothly and was perfectly opaque with just one coat. It is completely different to any of the other pinks or corals I own and is the perfect summer colour, it looks gorgeous on toes with sandals. (I know it’s February and I’m in Newcastle, but hey, I’m thinking ahead!)

Photographs show a base coat, 2 coats of colour, and a top coat. Thanks for reading!

Nails Inc Charing Cross

Red nails are my absolute favourite so this week’s manicure and pedicure is with a polish I wear quite a lot. Nails Inc Charing Cross is a bright post box red and one the best reds I own by Nails Inc, it’s slightly lighter than Victoria & Albert but slightly darker than St. James.

There’s just something about red nails that makes me so happy, I especially like the way this colour looks on my toes. For a long time red was actually the only colour nail polish I used to wear! For me this is a must have red, if you have any must have red nail polishes feel free to name them in the comments!

Photographs, as always, show a base coat, 2 coats of colour and a top coat. Thanks for reading!

Nails Inc Kensington Passage

Soooooo… I didn’t blog last week! I’ve been mega busy but I’m making up for it now! Last week’s manicure and pedicure was Nails Inc Kensington Passage. This polish is a bright coral shade and I received many compliments on it. I love the way this colour looks and I think it looks amazing in the summer too.

This polish is one from the gel effect range, quite a few people did ask me if they were gel nails however I didn’t notice any particular ‘plumping’ effect whilst applying. Kensington Passage is available to buy here, and photographs show a base coat, 2 coats of colour and a top coat.

Thanks for reading!

Rimmel Out Of The Blue

I’m clearly in a teal mood at the moment as this week I have chosen Rimmel Out Of The Blue for my manicure and pedicure. This colour is hard to describe, it’s a dark teal green with blue undertones. These photographs don’t do it justice at all as I was wholly unable to capture a true likeness.

Application was easy due to the flat brush, I really much prefer a flat brush when applying nail varnish as it just makes it so much easier to achieve smooth, clean lines. What is even better about this nail varnish is that I picked it up for just £1 in Pound World in South Shields!

Photographs show a base coat, 2 coats of colour, and a top coat.

Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street

This week’s manicure and pedicure will not be everyone’s cup of tea! Queen Victoria Street is a bright emerald green and I just love it! I bought this nail varnish last year and I’m already half way through the bottle, which, considering how many nail varnishes I have, is a massive achievement!

Application is easy, the formula of the polish is consistent and perfectly opaque after one coat. Photographs show a base coat, two coats of colour, and a top coat. Although these photographs are not wholly colour accurate as the polish is slightly darker and brighter in real life, but my camera refused to capture this!

Thanks for reading!

Nails Inc Green Park

I’ve been a massive fan of neutral colours recently (last week I wore Nails Inc The Thames) and this week’s manicure and pedicure does not disappoint. I’ve chosen Nails Inc Green Park which is hard to describe as a shade, it looks green in the bottle but goes on kind of a slate grey; with a hint of teal green! Maybe I’d best let the photos do the talking!

Application was smooth and easy, the formula is perfect and the colour is opaque after one coat.

Photographs show a base coat, two coats of colour and a top coat.

Nails Inc Crown Passage

This week’s manicure and pedicure is something super sparkly which I didn’t even know existed until the other day! Nails Inc Crown Passage is a black nail polish flecked with teeny tiny multicoloured pieces of glitter – it’s like a galaxy on your nails!

I found this nail polish in TK Maxx on Sunday for only £3.99! I’m so mega thrilled with it and it has become an immediate favourite! (I know, I know… I say that about almost all my new polishes!) I think this shade may have been limited edition as it is no longer available to buy on the Nails Inc website, although it is still for sale on Amazon. I’m already thinking that I may have to stock up while I can!

Application was smooth, although as this polish is quite runny the first coat did look slightly streaky, although this rectified itself with the application of a second coat and the colour evened itself out. I can’t stop staring at my nails as they look different in different light. I have tried to capture the colour as accurately as I can in these photographs which also show a base coat and a top coat.

I hope you like it as much as I do and thanks for reading!
