If there’s one thing I do love beauty wise, it’s nails. I seem to collect pretty shades like I do with fragrance bottles, I have ever known brand and generally a lot of pink, so it was nice to see what Nails Inc have coming out soon to mix it up a bit.
What I love about Nails Inc has to be how trend focused they are, each season I always seem to buy their catwalk inspired nail collections, which not only are they excellent value but the colours are always spot on. I can’t wait for the autumn/winter 2012 collection to hit stores in August as it features a gorgeous deep forest green shade based on Victoria Beckham’s show, as well as a navy glitter, a delicate nude, and a glossy plum seen at Paris Fashion Week shoes Chloe and Louis Vuitton, this is one gorgeous collection of varnishes.
The press preview was fun, I was introduced the to the classic shades, the gorgeous new neons with my favourite being Notting Hill Gate, a shocking pink, I like the idea of trying a neon and nude manicure with just the tips having a flash of colour, and I also loved the Sprinkles Collection, which adds a cool glitter effect to the nails, as well as the scented Juicy Sheers, a high gloss transparent colour that is actually fragranced with orange and strawberry scents, it has to be tried to be believed.
One of my favourite collection had to be the amazing new fishnet magnetic effect polish, which is pretty special for people like me who aren’t so great at creating their own nail art, as this polish does it all for you in a matter of minutes just by hovering over the magnet close to the polish, it was amazing and I can’t wait to try it out. The new shades are: Piccadilly a gold shimmer, Soho a chrome metallic, and Spitafields, which is an unusual green metallic that looks great with the fishnet pattern.
The there is the Nail Jewellery collection another favourite, it is a polish that adorns your nails like jewels without the mess of gluing diamonds to them. I can’t wait to try Princes Arcade, another pink shade over Black Taxi for a dramatic look.
The Nails Inc website already have a service where you can Pick & Mix your own colour collection, which is perfect for gifts, but I was able to test out the Couture by Nails Inc, which allows you to choose from a variety of embellished lids, your own colour, and you can also name the label, and customise the gift box with fun stickers from fashionista or simply Thank you.
Watch this space for my very own Fashionista Barbie, I think you can probably already guess but it is a shade of pink!!!
It was a great preview and thanks to Nails Inc’s generosity I came home with stacks of new shades to test out from their very own Pick & Mix stall, which I of course will be sharing when I use.
