Nails Inc. Belgrave Place – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 24 - 2009

Nails Inc still isn’t a favourite brand of mine.  I find the formula a little too thick – great for achieving opacity in 2 coats or less, but not so good for clumsy types like me.

Belgrave Place is a beautiful inky blue and although I love the colour, this polish isn’t a keeper for me.  Despite use of a base coat (I’m obviously not using one good enough), this stained my nails quite nastily upon removal.

Will I ever find a Nails Inc. polish I’m in love with?  The search continues – recommendations very welcome!

Sorry for so many NOTD posts, it feels like a bit of a lazy cop out as they’re much easier to do than full on reviews.  I have some MMU haul posts as well which I really need to be doing and I have a HG to share with you all – ‘citing!

    I’ve never used Nails Inc because i’ve been content enough with other cheaper brands but i love this colour! Shame it stained your nails though :(

  2. Hi Lauren, it is a fab colour isn’t it! After my last Nails Inc experience, I figured it was a brand I was happy to live without… but I saw this in Boots on the clearance shelves for £5 and loved the colour so much, I had to give it a go!

    i think the bottles are so cute, but we don’t carry it here. have you tried essie or butter?

  4. mizzworthy says:

    Nails Inc are not the best I agree – their base coat also made my nails peel really badly! Pretty colour though!

  5. Hi Jenn, Thanks for your comment! I’ve heard so many raves about Nails Inc… but I can’t seem to get the formula to work for me at all.

  6. @SukaandSpice – I haven’t tried either Essie or Butter London yet although I’m lemming ‘Blowing Raspberries’ from Butter’s Spring/Summer collection

  8. I did indeed thanks Yinka! I got Jermyn Street (same as you I think) and my Mum got herself China Town xx

    I know, I am discovering this post like 8 months too late. Tonight, I am browsing for nail polishes. I have an exciting life.
    Still want some suggestions of colours to try from nails inc? stumbled on two shades from ‘a stroke of color’ blog:
    – kings road (pink with lilac iridescent, finish? i dont know) and
    – winpole street (purple with some iridescence again i think).
    my dream colour would be to find a pink with a blue iridescence to it, for everyday wear, like kings road
