Review for: Porchester Square, Other more...
I have this product in Mayfair Lane (a light, classy pink) and porchester square (a purple-toned gray). I love the color selection and I love how quickly this product dries. On my nails if I don't use a top coat, it gets crackle-y, but if I do use any sort of top coat, it lasts for around 2 weeks! The ~10$ at Sephora for this stuff is definitely worth it. Will continue to purchase.

I have the colors Porchester Square and Hyde Park and I love them both. The colors aren’t streaky and they last a good while. Both colors are unique and I get compliments on them a lot. Just wish Nails Inc made more colors!

Review for: Porchester Square more...
I discovered this line at Sephora and obsessed over the Porchester Square shade. The perfect mauvey pink shade with a hint of gray. The formula is not the best and rather expensive compared to other comparable polishes.

Personally I love nails inc. the gel like line is great because I paint my nails they dry almost immediately and they look flawless. very easy to apply as the brush is a flat tip wide brush. I would definitely buy again in all the other colours. it's best to use with the Kensington top coat and kale food base coat. love love love that Mauve colored purple.

Review for: New Oxford Street more...
I love Nail Inc! Their polish is the best, no chipping for weeks!!!! It has a great brush and although one coat is enough I usually apply 2. The colors are very pigmented and rich and shine lasts for weeks as well, no need for a top coat. I seriously threw out all my other polish and bought about 10 colors!

I gave Nails Inc a try a few years back because of a color I found in Sephora. I have not looked back since and they have become my go to polish over OPI and Essie. You will find either Nails Inc or Deborah Lippmann on my hands and toes at any given time. I highly recommend Nails Inc, not only for their color and formula selection, but for keeping your nails healthy and strong while you wear it.

Review for: New Oxford Street more...
Overall, I'm a be fan of this entire line of gel polishes. The brush is wide, making application quick and easy. The formula is a standout-- one coat is nearly opaque and two coats leaves a perfectly glossy sheen.

I usually pair this polish with an at-home, non UV gel top coat and it does maximize the life of the polish. I don't quite get the ~10 day life that I've read about on other blogs but the polish does last longer than your typical polish. I'm rough on my hands and don't see chips until a few days in. I'm a big fan.

While I much rather go to the salon to get a mani, I do love buying nail polishes. These nail polishes are amazing in the fact that the brush is wide enough that you get almost your whole nail in one coat. The color variety is great too. Usually I do two coats, then clear on top. It does take a while to dry and chips within 2 days but applying it is so easy that I'm willing to overlook that.

I love this color. I got it from Birchbox awhile back and didn't think I'd like it but the color is one of those off color shades that people always like. It usually lasts without chipping for at least a few days, but then I typically switch to new colors once a week or so. Totally recommend it when you need a unique neutral that won't bore you!

Review for: Uptown more...
This is one of my favorite colors of all time. It also applies very smoothly and looks amazing. I got it at our local family dollar and was so happy with it. I use it all the time too, I just love the shine it leaves when it dries. I'm not usually a big nail painted but I really like this product.

What is the price tag on this polish? I can't day I have ever heard of this brand before.

I have looked this color polish every time I am in the store for a few months. It appears to be a brownish muted purple color....does it stay true to color on nails? I am old. I don't want something wild.

How thick of a coat does it look when applied and how long does this last?
