New this summer from Nails Inc. are Mirror Metallic Special Effects and Nail Jewelry polishes.
Mirror Metallic polishes in Stratford (bronze with pink) and Cheyne Walk (purple with gold) are a highly reflective polish created with mica pearls and give off a duochrome effect. Nail Jewelry polishes in Burlington Arcade (silver), Piccadilly Arcade (emerald), Princes Arcade (pink) and Royal Arcade (blue) are heavy multi-shaped glitters in a clear base.
Cheyne Walk is a medium purple metallic with slight gold duochrome effect. I actually saw the duochrome effect more in the bottle under certain lighting than on my nail. It’s fairly subtle but there. As far as a mirror finish well, I didn’t really see that. It doesn’t seem any more mirror-like than most other metallic polishes. Still, it’s a nice shade though it was a bit sheer and took three coats.
Royal Arcade is a blue glitter in clear base. The glitter pieces in here are micro, small, medium AND large! Many sizes and shapes, and it covered really heavily, which is good. I used two thick coats here. I was kind of surprised that after the first coat, the glitter pretty much stayed in place as I was applying the second coat, and I only waited maybe a minute in-between.
Pricing: $9.50 for 0.33 oz.
