Nails Inc. Swatches

Hi lovelies, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend-mine was brilliant! I visited The Paint Shop in Selfridges in London and spent far too long browsing the huge collection of polishes! I was being very good though, and did not buy any.

Today I have a selection of swatches from my Nails Inc. polishes.

What do you think of the coverage? These are all 2 coats.

Nails Inc. Ruffian

Hi beauties, I have a ruffian for you today. Not a normal ruffian, a triple ruffian! I created the look with all Nails Inc. polishes.

Base: Wellington Square

Mid: Grosvenor Street

Top: Holland Park Road

I love this because I love ruffians so much. The colours compliment each other so well and my Seche top coat has made them super shiny!

What do you think?

Gradient Mani

Hi all! After getting frustrated with my chip I decided to do a gradient mani, which I have been itching to try for a while. I chose similar colours because I wanted it to be quite subtle for my first go.

I chose rose libertine and coralicious from the Rimmel 60 sec range. I love the shape of the brushes, the polish is so easy to apply!

I used a round make up sponge cut in half to do my sponging, and I painted the polish on to paper rather than directly on to the sponge. Once I got the hang of it, it was quite a quick process. Quick but messy! As you can tell from the pictures, my nails are still in a mess!

After sponging my gradient, I painted an Avon plain gold glitter and Nails Inc special effects ‘Reading’ on to my ring finger in a gradient style too.

I am quite happy with that for a first attempt. It has cheered me up after my chip!

Edit: Here is a slightly less messy gradient picture!
