Longwearing, 1-2 coat opacity, smooth application, quick drying, non-staining, cool-toned suiting, hot & striking.

Only thing I don’t love is the application brushes, which I find a little on the thin side, requiring up to 8 strokes to cover the nail evenly and smoothly – but thankfully it’s not SO quick drying that it starts to drag if you go over it a few times.

Another thing I love is the price!  £2.89 each or 2 for £4.99 at the moment in Superdrug.

    Def NOT long wearing. They’ve always chipped a little by the end of day 2 on me, no matter which basecoat I’ve used. It’s downhill from there …

    Fab colour range but you get what you pay for.

  2. I got this colour in a swap and love it!! It is long lasting too.

  3. Hey Yinka, I wonder why it’s not very long wearing for you – I honestly usually get 3/4 days wear out of this before the tips begin to wear and even then I don’t see any proper chips. Still, my experiences with Nails Inc. have always been rubbish whilst most others sing the praises of the brand!

  4. Hi Michelle, nice swap, is that the recent one you got which included the Safari palette? I still haven’t got my hands on a Safari palette *note to seld – must try harder!

    I dunno :-( It happens with ALL my Barry M shades. I think I better start wearing gloves to do the washing up whenever I have BM on. It’s so annoying though – argh! It doesn’t stop me from buying them though! LOL

    I wonder if the same will happen with that Nails Inc polish I ordered on Sunday. Time will tell.

  6. …or just leave the washing up to clean itself 😉

    Thanks again for the heads up on the Nails Inc super bargain xx
