Free Nails Inc polish w/ Glamour

 I must confess that I am not a huge fan of Nails inc polishes, not so much because of their formula, but their packaging. Maybe it is just my personal experience, but I have found that the lids of the bottles never close tightly and so the polish dries out super fast. Yesterday I even discovered that one polish, which I had previously used only twice, had actually disappeared on me, leaving behind less than half a bottle of thick, pink gloop :(. Off to the trash it went, and I was left wondering what I had spent £10 on...

However, being the sucker that I am (let's face it) I still picked up Glamour today purely for the free Nails inc polish. I decided on Victoria, a deep, dark cherry red reminiscent of the Chanel Rouge Noir craze many of us went through a few years ago.


On application the varnish was quite streaky, though I find that to be the case with most dark polishes. To get a really opaque, rich colour I would recommend applying three coats, though I am far too lazy to paint my nails five times over (base coat+3 coats polish+ topcoat= far too much work), so I stuck with two and I think the overall look is pretty good, though not entirely even. Luckily, my Seche Vite topcoat comes to the rescue of any patchy manicure as it provides a high shine masking any streakiness.
This colour does require a bit of work, but it is vampy, sexy and perfect for autumn. Now I just have to wait and see how the polish lasts. If it goes in the way of its ancestors to a sticky, dry death I shall definitely be reporting to you all :).

Has anyone else had this problem with Nails Inc polishes?

  1. Oh dear not so much luck with nails inc, Nubar has a vineyard collection that has the same rich wine tones but the application is alot easier and of course its vegan and animal friendly :0)

  2. Oh I got the link pink nudey colour, it looks very pretty on but is nothing special. I love this vampy colour though, it looks great! xxx

  3. Not a fan of Nails inc. The application takes a lot of work and even then, it still comes out streaky...uneven. For those reasons, I think they are overpriced. My favourite nail polishes are from Chanel and OPI.

  4. Nails Inc polishes always seem quite thin and seem to need several layers to get a decent colour. Gorgeous colour though, perfect for winter x

  7. I do find Nails Inc to be pretty inconsistent across the brand. But when it's a good'un - it really works!

  8. I find Nails Inc polishes vary so much, but yeah I almost always need 3 coats. I only ever buy their polishes from the clearance page on their website. Otherwise I just stick to OPI, China Glaze, Zoya and Barry M. I subscribe to Glamour so didn't get to pick the colour. This is the 2nd time I've received 'Victoria'. I got the same shade with my magazine last year!

  10. not a fan at all! The only Nails Inc. I have are the two polishes that have come free with Glamour (one the same time last year, I think I got Victoria then) and I had exactly the same experience as you! This time round I got Shoreditch, a hot pink, and I'm just not impressed- it needed 3 coats and then chipped super quickly. I think I'll stick to my cheapy Collection 2000 polishes!
