Neon Nails Inc of The Day

Happy Sunday Folks! Everyone ok? I'm feeling a bit under the weather, not poorly enough to demand tea and sympathy all day but not chipper enough to motivate myself to get ready! That may come under LAZY in the dictionary... Not too sure!!!

Anyway had the house to myself this morning so spent it in bed, painting nails, electric blanket on, Gavin and Stacey on Netflix and surrounded by my curious cats (who incidentally got bored quickly and decided to cat nap!).. Bliss yes?

So today I've gone for PINK on my nails. Not that I'll be making any boys wink any time soon... that will take some work believe me!!! (Unless the unbrushed, unwashed look is catching on?)

Todays weapon of choice was Nails Inc in Notting Hill Gate, it's sold as a neon shade so I was psyched thinking I was in for the Baker Street of the pink world... 

Needed the flash to 'capture' the colour

Not quite the NEON I expected but still a striking colour
You can see the tips of my nails if you concentrate and squint :)
In all honesty it doesn't have the stand alone 'kick' that Baker Street has, I wouldn't describe it as neon pink that's for sure, more barbie bright! Plus I needed four coats to to achieve full coverage which is unusual for Nails Inc... 

With half an hour of 'me time' left and feeling like my nails needed more OOMPH! I decided to have play around and jazz the colour up... So I whipped on Nails Inc Electric Lane holographic top coat and striped on Essie's Matte About You over my remaining two fingers.

EEE the shame, got picture happy before I 'neatened up' my splodges! Damn disgrace!!







I adore the holographic top coat, it's not chunky bits of glitter, its a smooth polish full of itsy bitsy particles that catch and reflect the light. And it smells like glue! Don't know why that's a good thing but i distinctly remember thinking OOOH when I caught a whiff of it!! :)




And there's todays products... I'm liking but not loving this look my so my guess is that this evening will be spent catching up on Corrie (still surrounded by sleeping sleeping kitties!) and repainting my nails to something I'm actually 'feeling' !!


What do you think? Have you tried any of these products? Any ideas for my nails tonight??

Thanks for reading

  4. oh this is so pretty, I did a look like this on someone recently with neon pink and glitter but I'm absolutely loving the matte polish. I've bought loads that don't seem to work, maybe I'm doing something wrong so seeing this on and that it really does go matte, I have to buy it :) x

  9. I tried the nails Inc polish ages ago, but they really stained my nails. However, after reading this and considering a lot of time has past I'm definitely going to give them another go.

    I hope the formula is better!

    Great blog, followed.
