Nails of the Day (NOTD) – Nails Inc Uptown and Barry M Socialite!

Hi everyone!

I’ve had a lot of feedback on my Nails of the Day posts, and they seem to be really popular.  I of course want to give you guys what you want, so here is another nail post!  I received this Nails Inc polish in the shade ‘Uptown’ in my May Love Me Beauty subscription box.  It’s a really nice subtle, neutral pink shade.  Something that would be perfect for work, or low maintenance nails (as it doesn’t show up too badly if it chips whilst you’re out and about).

As it is quite a muted shade, I decided to liven things up a bit!  I did an accent nail (or as I call them, a feature nail!) in glittery pink.  I chose this gorgeous Barry M shade in ‘Socialite’, which I received for my birthday from a friend.

The Nails Inc nail polish was easy to apply and had a lovely, creamy texture.  It actually lasted slightly longer than the other Gel Effect one I have in ‘Bond Street’ (review here), which I was pleased with.  Bond Street chipped literally the day I applied it!  This lasted a couple of days (so I would hope for better with a gel effect really, but at least it lasted longer than Bond Street!)  The Barry M glitter was easy to spread out and not too chunky, as some glitters are.  It was annoying to remove, as all glitter polishes seem to be, but they’re worth it for the prettiness!

Although I haven’t paid full price for either of the Nails Inc Gel Effect polishes, I do think they should be longer lasting at £14 each [update: now £15 each)! You can find Uptown here* and Socialite here*.

    I like the combination and the feature nail works really well. Pale pink is great when you don’t feel like redoing it if it chips. I got a Gel Effects one the other day in a box, the Soho Place one and so far three days in no chips which is good for a nails inc one on me. I find them a bit hit and miss in general for staying power on my nails.
