Having read some good reviews about the Nails Inc Gel Effect nail polish, I finally succumbed to the temptation of owning it myself. I bought a few shades and here I am reviewing the shades Uptown and Old Bond Street for you. Read on to find out more.
Discover the best-selling Gel effect polish range formulated with revolutionary plasticizer technology for a flawless manicure at home. Gel effect polish glides on effortlessly and the extra wide brush ensures easy application. Highly pigmented to provide exceptional coverage and with a plumping agent to level out any imperfections on the nail.
My Experience with Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish Uptown and Old Bond Street:
Packaging/Brush Applicator: The Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish comes in a sleek rectangular bottle with the cap matching the color of the polish. The packaging is quite attractive. The brush is slightly wide and flat. It picks up a good quantity of the nail polish and the brush covers the entire nail bed in just two strokes. The application is so much easier compared to the regular nail polish brushes and there is no streaking either.
Formula/Performance: The nail polish has the perfect consistency; initially it feels a little thick, but it spreads very easily making the application very smooth. Though you can cover the nails in a single coat, I prefer 2 coats to achieve complete opacity and an even finish. It dries down to a gorgeous crème gel-like finish and has an amazing shine. The drying time is pretty good too and should be under a minute or so, but it is the staying power that takes the cake for me. It is just amazing and it stays on easily for 6-7 days without any chipping. This is the longest that any nail polish has ever stayed on me with all my housework and furious typing on laptop.
Uptown: Uptown is a very lovely dusty pink. It is a sophisticated nude shade and I am glad that it does not make my hands look darker like some other nudes do. It is the perfect shade for office wear or any other formal occasion and is bound to give your hands a well-manicured look.
Old Bond Street: Old Bond Street is a deep indigo blue color. It is quite dark and almost appears black in some lights. Those of you who like deep dark shades will absolutely love this nail polish. It looks sleek and classy on the hands.
To summarize, these nail polishes are on the expensive side, but they surely do give the gel-like effect to your nails and live up to all their claims.
