Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish

How I’ve not written about these colours sooner I don’t know – as these have fast become my g0-to nail colours. These are the new Gel Effect nail polishes from Nails Inc and they’re pretty darn awesome. Ok, so lots of brands have jumped on the whole ‘gel effect’ band wagon, which essentially just means really glossy polish with arguably some longer-lasting staying power than the average polish – and whilst I love these claims. To me, these are just amazing quality polishes – creamy, easy to apply to create a gorgeous even colour in minimum coats that then drys to a perfectly glossy finish. Basically, everything I want from the average polish…

The other thing I love about these polishes is the four shades in the current range pretty much encompass my favourite nail shades – a grey-ish ‘go with anything’ nude in the form of Porchester Square, the deep wine shade of Kensington High Street, a classic tomato red of St James and then a rich purple of Bond Street. Now if they could just do a gel version of Baker Street and I would be over the moon…

My top pick of the bunch would have to be Porchester Square – the gel version of one of my all-time classic favourites. But all four shades are total winners with me and I really hope Nails Inc do expand the colour offering for the Gel Effect range as the formula is amazing.

On the nail front, on a totally separate subject – I do need to find myself a new base coat as the one I was using and loving has been failing on me recently (peeling off or chipping in 24 hours with most polishes!) so I need to find a replacement…what’s your go-to base coat?!

    Gel nail varnish, like so many other innovations, has passed me by! I read your review and rushed straight out to try one from the Rimmel Salon Pro range.

    I really love the colors Porchester Square and Kensington High Street. I saw them at Sephora the other day and debated about it, but I ended up passing. After reading some good reviews, I may have to go back!

    I can’t even choose a favourite colour from these, they all look amazing! I’ve heard good things about Barry M’s gel polishes and I love the nails inc brand as it is so these sound just marvy!
