Nails: Nails Inc Porchester Square

23 August 2012

This was another of my ASOS 'treats' - I think that paying for their premier service has definitely injured my bank balance, although it gives me something nice to look forward to if work has been stressful!

Porchester Square is one of Nails Inc's most popular polishes, and it was released with this crystal cap in honour of the Queen's jubilee. Now I love anything sparkly, anything royal, and my collection of nudeyish polishes is never ending, so this suits me right down to the ground! As you can see in the last photo, I'm not likely to lose this shade in my 'favourites' box, that lid is kind of unmissable ;)

 Believe it or not I'd never tried a Nails Inc polish before this, but I have to say I'm so impressed by the formula. Its creamy, smooth, and in 2 coats provides a perfect streak free coverage - I can see why these polishes are so popular despite their price. What's more, I really like the colour of this too. I didn't get on to well with Chanel's Particuliere which is also a mushroomy shade, but this one is much lighter and grey based, rather than Chanel's brown tone, so this is a real winner for me. I'd say its like the grown up Model's Own Utopia, in that it still has that slightly lilacy undertone, but it looks slightly more sophisticated. It has a nice glossy finish, and just makes nails look very neat and polished.

Chips wise I'm not expecting anything life changing, but given that I spend eight hours a day typing away at a computer no polish lasts any more than 2-3 days on me, so we'll see! I'm hoping it'll make it over the bank holiday weekend, and from the quality of the formula so far it's looking good.

So, now that I'm sucked in to the Nails Inc hype, which shade would you recommend I pick up next?


  1. Love that shade! I think (hope!) Nails Inc is here in Sephora...can never have enough nudes :)

  2. Great colour & I love the packaging!!

    I'm having a GIVEAWAY over at my blog if you wanna check it out!


  3. I love the packaging on this, I organise my nail polishes in an old beauty box too :)

  4. Love Nails Inc polishes - however, even if I use Barry M with a base and topcoat (with vigoruous typing and sports) I find it lasts a week even!


  5. It looks like a beautiful nude shade. I only have one Nails Inc polish and it is a glitter one that I don't like very much.


  6. Such a lovely shade, and the lid is so pretty!


Thank you for all of your comments - I read and appreciate every one :)
