Continuing on my quest to test out all of my untrieds from Nail Sale I come to this fab Nails Inc called Arlington Street. Until my recent coffee date with Emma the only Nails Inc I had ever had in my stash were a couple of old magazine freebies – Nails Inc at £11 sitting well beyond my normal price range. I was lucky to be gifted some really lovely neutrals and nudes which have impeccable formula and a glossy finish similar to Barrym Gelly.
During my browsing of nail sales I spotted a lot of NI polishes for between £2.50-£4 depending on the person, level of use and how many I was willing to buy. I scooped this particular polish up in a 4 for £10 plus P&P offer which meant each polish cost me £3.15 and I think that these polishes come under the heading barely used – possibly used for one swatch if that so a definite bargain. As many of you know I am not a purple person but as we head into autumn I am discovering myself in a red and wine coloured polish binge which has lead to darker purples creeping into the collection and then this purple/blue duochrome glass shimmer polish. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. Not my normal cup of tea for sure but definitely eye catching and the application was flawless.
In the shade this is a deep berry purple which takes two thin coats to achieve a lovely even finish. I think the shimmer (which is packed in there) sits in a red purple base (which you can see around the edges of my ring fingers) but whatever the formulation… I really liked this polish.
Not willing to leave things alone I added some Born Pretty glequins (don’t forget my discount code if you go shopping!) which switch between purple, green and blue iridescent to create a half moon manicure and then some coloured crystals in pale green which now I am looking at it created a Darlek on my ring finger >.< I think this combination of deep berry colours and pale pastel greens is perfect as the weather begins to change – yes, I am delighted that autumn is here, sorry sun lovers! The electric blue flash in this polish really makes it for me, I am not sure I would like it as much if it were a straight purple shimmer… I don’t know… maybe… OMG am I converting to purple? Has the change in the weather started changing your colour preferences?
