NOTD: Pink Diamond

Written by:

So, expect some truly horrific images that include close-ups off my shocking cuticles and bad application technique, but it’s all necessary to show you the colours and effects of the varnishes I’ve used!

This NOTD combination was inevitable, as I’ve had my eye on Notting Hill Gate ever since I first took it home from the Nails Inc event.  It’s a perfect pop of bright pink that looks fabulous on fingers and toes and I absolutely love it.

As I’m out tomorrow night for my bi-annual socialising session (I seriously need to get out more.  SERIOUSLY) I decided to bling up my nails with some glitter.  But not just any glitter, oh no, it had to be Nail Jewellery, and what better shade to go with Notting Hill Gate, than Princes Arcade?

So this NOTD includes two coats of Notting Hill Gate and two coats of Princes Arcade.  Notting Hill Gate was almost opaque on the first coat, but I added another as I knew the brightness of the pink would be dulled by the purple tones of Princes Arcade.

I love this NOTD: it has everything I love in a nail look; brights, pinks, glitter and sparkle.  I definitely think that Nails Inc’s Jewellery range are an adult’s answer to sparkly fingertips as there’s just something slightly more sophisticated about the size and arrangement of the chunks of glitter.  I suppose it looks a little more expensive as it’s very much like having nails dripping in diamonds, so I’m a total convert….at least I will be right up until I try to get the bugger off come next manicure.

It’s safe to say that my pictures do not do the nail jewellery justice as it’s really an effect that needs to be viewed multi-dimensionally.  I tried really hard to capture it, but sadly to no avail.

Both Notting Hill Gate (S) and Princes Arcade (S) are available now from the Nails Inc online store here, priced at £11 each.
