NOTD – Nails Inc. – Jermyn Street

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 17 - 2009

So, my Nails Inc. freebie arrived (I bet Nails Inc. HQ was positively buzzing with nail polish elves fulfilling orders last week).

I ordered Jermyn Street, a beautiful deep mushroom colour with a slight lavender hint.  It’s certainly unusual and sophisticated enough to wear any time you see fit.

It has a stunningly beautiful high gloss finish (no top coat used in the photo) and longevity seems pretty decent aswell with only minor tip wear after two days.

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know my rocky history with Nails Inc.  I just don’t love the formula of the polishes I’ve tried thus far.  I’d love to say that this is the polish to change my mind… but it’s not.  I don’t know if you can see… but on the outside edge of the little finger is what I’m talking about.  It goes on a little too thick and starts to dry a little too quickly for me to get a lovely smooth application.  Honestly though, for this shade… I’m happy to overlook my problems with the polish.

  1. I love the nail polish fairies! That was such a great offer. I got London Nights (didn’t realise it was black – I cannot pull it off) and Brooke Street which is an awesome colour but not feeling the consistency.

  2. @LionLovingTiger – I know! I don’t think I’ve ever come across such a generous ‘giveaway’. I’m sorry that London Nights was a no go for you :(

    i cant stand nails inc either, i love the colours but the formulas are so gloopy.

  4. @Lucy, I’ve just bought more *eek* considering I keep saying how I don’t like them, why can’t I stop buying them? LOL
