NOTD – Nails Inc. – Mayfair Mews

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 3 - 2009

This is a shade that was sent as a freebie (for joining the newsletter I believe) back when I took advantage of the Nails Inc. offer a couple of weeks ago.

It’s a hot, hot jelly shade! I would describe it simply as 50% red 50% orange.  I can’t commit exclusively to either camp for descriptive purposes!

It applies VERY sheer for what appears to be such a bold, solid colour.  The above photo took 5 coats and it’s still not fully opaque.  But yanowot?  This is my favourite Nails Inc. application yet!  Woohoo!  It’s thin but very quick drying.  Love it!  The result is a gorgeously smooth, bubble-free jelly-like finish.  There wasn’t quite enough shine for me, so I added a quick-drying top coat.  I think this would make the most awesome pedicure shade – it makes me very sorry to see the last of summer (well, not that we had one.. but I know you know what I mean.)

I can’t find this shade on their website, so if you wanna get your hands on it… make sure that you sign up to their newsletter next time you make an order!

I’ve said it before, but having to apply lots of coats really doesn’t bother me as long as the application is smooth and forgiving.  I’m usually doing my nails whilst watching telly or surfing t’internet so if it takes a couple of hours from start to finish – I don’t care.  I find it quite therapeutic!

How about you?… do you enjoy doing your nails or do you find it all a bit of a chore?

    i LOVE doing my nails. I really like the action of just painting something.. lol. it takes me a few hours too, i like to drag it out and make sure each coat is perfect.

    I have the same bugbears about nails inc that you have too i think, from reading your other nails inc posts. application on all the ones i have is terrible, they’re too unruly and gloopy and i end up with 10 coats on that i just end up peeling off because its too thick. it’s a shame because some of the colours are really pretty. glad you’ve found one you like though!!

  5. @Rebecca It’s fierce isn’t it! It has such a lovely jelly like finish… ultra glassy!

  6. I’m wearing this now, I’m glad to note that yours took 5 coats. I have two on and its awful – in the dark light last night I thought it was OK once done but in daylight I realised I was wrong! WIll apply more. I have top say though, this is my worse Nails Inc yet. And I love them!
