It may have been a bit of a blessing in disguise that I completely forgot to paint my nails on the way to London the other week, as I managed to swipe Tor’s Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc polish in Bamboo White from her bag to paint my nails on the train. I actually only own a few Nails Inc polishes and after seeing the press releases and swatches of these polishes, I was debating whether to pick up one of these polishes.
Personally as much as I love the colour (an off white bone shade), I think for £25 per bottle or £45 for the duo you’re paying for the name instead of the product. Now don’t get me wrong the matte black bottle looks stunning with its concave opaque shape and with the side window displaying the bottle is stunning and would look amazing on display. However for £25 I just think that is screams waste of money to me.
In order to justify the price of the polish, these polishes have been developed with an exclusive formula which features silica-rich bamboo extra which strengthens the nail, as well as providing the nail with essential nutrients. Considering I was painting my nails on the train, I found that the polish applied very smoothly to my nails and didn’t look streaky at all. The swatches above are of two coats, however I only needed to use the one coat for it to be fully opaque.
Personally I can’t comment as to whether this helps boast healthier nails, as I only wore this for four days before reverting back to my Nail SOS programme (post coming soon). However there was very little tip wear, however as I was off work I was very rarely using my laptop. As soon as I put this on my nails I instantly thought that this looked very similar to Models Own Utopia, however as you can see from the photos Utopia is much more grey/taupe toned in comparison to the Nails Inc polish. If I’m honest I bet you would be able to find a more affordable nail colour which would cost a fraction of the price. Would you pay £25 for a nail polish?
