Hope you are all amazing. I absolutely loved my experience with Nails Inc London. I had never used them prior to my visit and I have never purchased their goods. I was always more of an OPI fan, and although they are a great nail brand I have to say that Nails Inc are equally as good with a bit more exciting colouring choices that are girly and fun. They are also a fashionable brand too! Their neon paints are super bright and long lasting, something I didn’t expect. I had painted my feet using the neons and my favourite was the pink neon. I love neons in general and is the perfect bright shade. The yellow was surprisingly a great cool colour if you are feeling a bit edgy.
The other shade which was great but not my favourite was the red/orange colour, this is purely due to my skin tone. The other two were colours I would definitely use more. Lottie Tomlinson’s collaboration with the paint spray can in ‘Good as Gold’ is a great go to for me. I love anything in gold and anything that is sparkly. What is phenomenal about this range is that they are spray, as far as I am aware no brand has attempted this method. I was a bit hesitant at first to try it as I am super clumsy, I laid down some newspaper outside on my garden and sprayed away to my heart’s content. The finish was great. I usually hate laboriously painting my nails and it has become a chore for me, so this was a fun way to just spray away and bam, it’s all complete. This was all mess free too!
I have naturally long healthy nails but I hate how they aren’t as strong and long lasting as, say, acrylic or gel nails. I love the finish of shellac but they cost near enough the same as acrylic nails. I had only recently gotten acrylic nails, as for a whole year I had been eau naturalle. Maintaining them, whilst working a job and starting a business is very tough. My experience at the nails counter in Selfridges was a lovely experience, they were quicker than I had thought and the quality of the manicure was high. I had picked a French manicure with a triangular finish. I love getting this style as it’s easy, classic, feminine and goes with everything. I have always had a round shape, I will only keep a square shape with natural nails. I highly recommend Nails Inc, their polishes glide on like silk and they last very long, something we as women want in every polish in our demanding lives!
Until next time,
