Review: Nails Inc.

i own a few bottles of nails inc. nail polishes and so thought i should do a review on them. nails inc. is a high end nail polish brand in the UK and each bottle retails for around £10.50. however, iv never paid that much for any of mine. they have previously been given away as free gift with magazines such as InStyle and Glamour and i have also purchased a collection from QVC. (if your interested in trying out or buying more nails inc. nail polishes, i would seriously recommend buying them from QVC as sell then for much lower prices).

so this is my collection:
from left to right: kensington cavier top coat, kensington cavier base coat, InStyle Coral, Brompton Place, Sloane Mews, InStyle Bare, Jermyn Street, Chester Place, Eaton Mews, Dover Street Market, Victoria and Chesham Place.

one thing i do love about these nails polishes is the names! there all named after streets in London, i love it.

i used the top and base coat when i can be bothered, but i do like these two products. the top coat does add extra shine and allows the colour intensity to last for longer.

i usually apply two coats of the nail polish and it lasts for ages! they give a high shine finish and some of then even give a high gloss finish which i love. the gloss finish polishes (Chester Place, Dover Street Market and Victoria) compared to the matte finish polishes (instyle coral, Brompton Place, Sloane Mews Instyle Bare and Jermyn Street) in my opinion are better. i think they look more expensive and i always get compliments when wearing them. two of the shades, Chesham Place and Eaton Mews give a metallic finish.
the two shades i was disappointed with were the two free shades i got with Instyle magazine a couple of months ago. (these are the two shades with instyle in their name) they almost seemed like fakes because they were a lot more streaky and hard to apply compared to the other matte finish colours i own. the brush was also different and in my opinion of a cheaper quality. so if you were disappointed with the shades offered with Instyle Magazine i would definitely try again with a colour perhaps from a set or a gloss finish polish which are my personal favourite.
i'l be sure to take some picture when i have them on my nails, but i definitely recommend nails inc.


  1. Great post! I have never tried a nails inc polish other than the one i got free with in style. I have always thought they were FAR too expensive but will definately be checking qvc out! xXx

  2. Great collection! They're all lovely colours. x
