NFU 046

This is 3 coats, a very red looking orange,
And here is one coat over a black. 
Sorry for the missing finger... I gouged out the polish off my pinky.

Essie Super Bossa Nova

I wonder why it took me SO long to wear this color... LOVE IT! (2 coats)

Nails Inc Brook Street

2 Coats
nails Inc describes this color as: Soft pink coral nail polish.

All of the Nails Inc swatches that I am going to show you in the next couple of weeks are between 2-3 coats, with a few exceptions, which I will point out.

Although these colors might not be unique in the nail polish world, the quality of the Nails Inc formula makes them one of my favorite brands. So much so that I have bought many of them paying the going rate in the UK (which is 11 pounds!). Nails Inc even made an appearance in New York City for the 2009 Holiday Season when they were available for a very limited time at Henry Bendel (here they were on sale at $16 each).

Just imagine cremes that are SO pigmented that you only need ONE coat... if you are careful.
This will explain why I need to get all the other colors that I don't have from Sephora! They are an absolute steal at $9.50 each. And I can't wait to get them all, so I may swatch them for you.
I am going to show you all the ones that are available there first in case you are interested =P

OPI We'll Always Have Paris Suede

This is 2 coats,
And here it is with Top Coat 
The OPI Suede collection are my go-to polishes when I am in a rush, they dry in a flash, and become even better with a top coat!

Color Club Space Case

This is 2 coats, I usually love pinks... but this is too bubble gum for me (and not in a good way!)

Old Nails Inc Swatches and a question...

I wanted to show you once again the Nails Inc colors that I have previously swatched as they are currently available in the United States (Woo Hoo!!!) at http://www.sephora.com/. I love the Nails Inc formula and color range! So much so that I have a collection of over 70 of them!

I have 15 of the colors that are available at Sephora, and have previously shown you there 3:
Of these 3 I will have to reswatch South Molton Street and Saville Row.

I just wanted to give you a heads up, that Nails Inc swatches will pop up everyday until I show you all the colors that I have which are available at Sephora.
I will also start a blog sale (although I need to take pictures of the bottles which need to find a good home) as I need to raise funds to buy all the Nails Inc colors that I don't already have =P

BUT... I wanted to know if you would be interested in seeing ALL the Nails Inc colors I have? Even if they will not be available in the USA?
Thank you in advance for your answers...

OMG!!! Look at the email I just got!

I LOVE THOSE BOOKS!!! I NEED THESE!!!
It is too bad that nailsinc.com doesn't ship to the USA =(

nails inc London
The most exciting collaboration of the year - Little Miss nail polishes available here first!
Little Miss SplendidLittle Miss Chatterbox
Little Miss SunshineLittle Miss Naughty
To celebrate their 40th anniversary, Little Miss Sunshine, Little Miss Naughty, Little Miss Splendid and Little Miss Chatterbox went out for a manicure. Little Miss Chatterbox couldn't stop chattering about wanting her nails painted a soft greige; the colour of the season. Little Miss Splendid failed to find a minty green that was perfectly splendid enough for her, while Little Miss Naught had trouble looking for a pastel colour that was a naughty enough purple. And Little Miss Sunshine couldn't find the precise peachy shade for her. So they went to Thea Green, founder of nails inc. 'We can't find the perfect colours for our manicures', they all chanted together. 'Don't worry,' said Thea, 'I'll make them for you.' And that's just what she did.
Which Little Miss are you?
Little Miss Chatterbox - perfect taupe nail polish
Little Miss Splendid - fresh aqua nail polish
Little Miss Sunshine - soft peach nail polishLittle Miss Naughty - muted purple nail polish
Little Miss polishes are a fantastic way to give a unique and personlised gift to someone special. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to snap up these beautiful polishes. They are true collector's items that no nails inc fan should be without.
I know the colors are not unique... but look at those bottles!
Sorry the bottle pics are all over the place! I just couldn't figure out how to edit them nicely...

Sephora by OPI IM Beauty, with Color Club Starry Temptress Topcoat

I believe this ws 4 coats! What a streaky mess... It eventually evened out. But if you want a color like this go with Zoya Pippa, which is a bit brighter but is easy to apply.

This is one coat of Starry Temptress Topcoat,

Rescue Beauty Lounge Iconoclast

This is 2 coats

Knock Out Ox with NFU 083

This is 2 coats, it has a rubbery finish.
Which looks amazing with a top coat, although this is not an original color in the least. 
Here it is with a layer of NFU 083, a swatch of this is coming in the future!

Nabi Charcoal

This is 2 coats, I picked this up at a blog sale... and I wish I could find it in real life.
