You guys, I am super, super excited about this. Nails inc. is finally available here! I first discovered the brand a few years ago on a trip to London, but I was stupid enough not to stock up on it then, so once the two colors I bought were gone, I was out of luck. It was tragic. They've been on Sephora's website for a few weeks now, and then this weekend, I finally got a chance to go to the Sephora in Santa Monica which has its very own nails inc. display. (I tried to take a picture of it to put up here, but there were at least three women crowded around it at all times and I just couldn't bring myself to ask them to move. It seemed kinda rude). I fell in love with many, many of the colors, but I talked myself out of my first impulse, which was to buy them all instead of paying my rent this month, and made myself stick to buying only two, with the promise that I could come back another weekend and pick up a few more). I grabbed Foubert's Place, which is described as a "fatigued olive." (I couldn't resist because I don't own any colors like it). It looks more green in the bottle than on my hands indoors - it actually looks dark grey on me when I'm inside, but when I look at my nails in the sunlight, the green definitely comes across. It's a very pretty, perfect for fall shade.
The other bottle I couldn't resist was the Special Effects Electric Lane Holographic Glitter Top Coat. (I know, it's a mouthful). It's a clear polish with holographic glitter in it that you can use alone or as a top coat over any shade already in your collection. I love, love, love this polish. It's such a great way to make those shades that you adore but have grown a little sick of seem new again. I can totally see myself using it all the time. Love!
Some of the other shades I'm coveting are Maddox Street (a metallic dark smoke), Basil Street (a beige camel), and Tate (a deep garnet). I also got sent a few shades and out of those three, I'm totally obsessed with The Thames, a deep cement gray. I wore it all last week and I loved the formula, the fact that it didn't chip quickly, and the classic neutral color.
Nails inc. polishes are available now on Sephora's website and in select stores (you can call them to find out if yours is one of them). They're a very reasonable $9.50 and up (which is apparently cheaper than they are in London. Crazy!)
Note: A sample of this product was sent to me by a PR representative working with nails inc.
