Nail Inc Lucky Dip and Jazzy French Manicure

You may or may not have realised this, but I am/was a Nails Inc Virgin. I thought the polishes were rather overpriced and no particular colour was screaming out at me to invest in so I just stayed away quite happily. This all changed when I happened upon their lucky dip offer which they seem to run every month or so. Instead of £11 a polish they charge £18 for SEVEN random polishes! Bargain or what?! So although I've been reducing my spending quite drastically recently it would have been a crime not to order them! And here they are:


As you can see, it's a pretty good variety. From left to right: Blenheim Terrence, Lanesborough Place, Sloan Gardens, Mayfair, Phoenix Place, Maida Vale and Justice Walk. I was quite pleased with the variety of colours and finishes and I think I will use all of them, possibly with the exception the Phoenix Place as me and pink polish aren't the best of friends... 

Anyway, I decided I had to try as many of the polishes as possible, and Mayfair was screaming out to be the perfect French Manicure tip so I went with it. I was right - it's pearly cram instead of white making it more natural and less harsh. I covered my French Tips with one coat of Essie Sugar Daddy and allowed to dry before free handing with a striping brush a stripe of Justice Walk, followed by and second stripe of Maida Vale. The glitters are both fabulous, catching the light easily and perfectly complementing the simple but classic french manicure.

I hope you like my take on the classic!

  2. Ohhh you got a good mixture of polishes there! I never buy the lucky dips as I'm bound to end up with the crackles or the crappy colours!!

    1. Before I ordered I spoke to some of the ladies on A Brit of Nail Polish on Facebook and everyone who had got them before said they got a good mix and NO crackles (cause that put me off too!), also it helped that I didn't own any as it meant I had no chance of getting dupes! But I've seen a few girls who got exactly the same as me so I assume they have a set lucky dip - so if you get crappy ones so will everyone else! Bx
