Nails Inc launched a range of gel effect polishes and I picked up two when I was last in the UK-the cool mushroom 'Porchester Square' and the vampy berry 'Kensington High Street'. Porchester Square is also available in the permanent polish range and is one of Nails Inc's most popular shades.
The gel effect polish gives the high sheen and 'plumpness' of a gel manicure (something I love) but without the need for a UV lamp or a soak off (my pet hate). You just apply as a normal polish.
I really love Porchester Square. It looks so polished and shiny. It lasted the longest a nail polish has ever lasted on me-five days and it was still going strong with not one chip (I am the girl who has to usually change her polish every two days). It applies smoothly and streak free. I applied Essie First Base, 2 coats of polish then a top coat of Seche Vite to add more gloss and cut down on drying time.
Kensington High Street is a gorgeous vampy winter berry shade. Slightly more difficult to apply without a streak free finish but the wear time was equally as good.
Removal is super easy with your usual nail polish remover.
I really can't knock this new formula-I suspect I might pick up the bright pink 'Downtown' and the baby pink 'Mayfair Lane' when I am next in the UK.
I purchased Porchester Square and Kensington High Street from Debenhams for £14 each.
Have you tried these new polishes?
