Whilst heavily guarding my wallet at Sephora in case some really expensive makeup item tried to lure me in, I caught a glimpse of something magical and sparkly that I couldn’t take my eyes off of. It was called Nails Inc Crushed Diamonds Winter Mews.
Now normally a silver nail polish is pretty much completely uninteresting to me. I have seen them ALL (or so I feel like) and I can’t even remember the last time I bought one. But this was different. This really did look like iridescent crushed up silvery diamonds. And then I picked up the bottle, which is a new style for Nails Inc, and I was sold. SOLD! Give me something heavy and expensive feeling and I swear that is the tipping point for me. Plus the cap comes off for easier painting, so yeah. Love.
Winter Mews has silver and iridescent glitter and the overall look is super sparkly and amazing. These photos are nothing as cool as it looks like in real life. Never-you-mind the bad reviews it got on Sephora because clearly those people don’t know what they are talking about.
This is very opaque and it pretty much completely covered my nails in two coats. Because it’s so super glittery it is on the thick side, but it’s really easy to work with. It never gets clumpy or gloopy unless you use way too thick of a coat. It’s not a top coat (again, despite what some of the clueless people on the Sephora reviews said), it’s definitely more of a full-coverage polish, so it wouldn’t really work over another color unless you used a super thin coat.
It’s beautiful sparkly and amazing. I love it. It does have a textured-like finish because it’s so glittery, so it would need a top coat to get it smoother, but you may not be able to get it completely smooth. I don’t care because it’s magical. 🙂
This is limited edition for $15.00 and can be found at Sephora.
