In Style x Nails Inc

Nails Inc Polishes in You're a Peach & It's Red, Babez - via In Style magazine

I have been a pretty bad blogger over the last couple of weeks. I do, however, have an excuse - I've just returned home from one of the best weeks of my life in sunny Las Vegas, so expect a hefty haul post soon. I'm currently battling through the jet lag, and figured that the best thing to do when a gal just can't sleep at one thirty in the morning is to catch up on a bit of beauty blogging.

I think that this edition of In Style is on sale in the UK for a couple days more, so grab it while you can ladies and gents. Once again, they've come up with a knockout trio of shades for a very reasonable price of £3.90. The third shade, Totes Pink, is a pale pink/purple which initially didn't appeal to me, but I'm now kicking myself for not getting.

You're a Peach is the shade which first caught my eye, and which I drove to six - yes, six - newsagents looking for a few Sunday's ago. I can't explain the joy I felt when I finally managed to track it down, so I have to admit that once I applied it, I was initially a little disappointed. As is often the case with pastel shades, this required three coats to avoid being too streaky, and the formula didn't seem as smooth as other Nails Inc shades I've used. It was initially (dare I say it) a litlle gloopy, but once sealed in to place with topcoat it's a really pretty peach shade for spring and summer. If I'd have paid full price for this I'd have been gutted, but as a magazine freebie, I'm happy to have it in my collection.

It's Red, Babez is probably one of the worst nail polish names I've ever read, but it's also one of the nicest red-orange shade's going, so it balances out! The formula of of this polish is much easier to apply, and the colour really is ideal for summer. I've been wearing it on my toes, but now that the sun's finally shown its face it'll be working it's way up to my fingernails ASAP. This has a lovely glossy finish, and is definitely up to usual Nails Inc standards.

Are you a Nails Inc fan? What have I missed whilst I've been away? I'm off to carry on the fight with jet lag and attempt to get some sleep before sunrise...
