Nails Inc. Black Taxi and Princess Arcade- Nail Jewelry

Humpday is here and I'm in Pink...

  Sort of.. Anywho, I recently got to try some of Nails Inc. London's newer releases and I'm really pleased with what I received. Among my pretties were Princess Arcade and Black Taxi. It only made sense to pair them.
 I'm really feeling the index and middle fingernail accents. Layering Princess Arcade over Black really intensified the effect of the beautiful Magenta glitter blend. Princess Arcade has such depth and it makes for some beautiful gradients. The formula on Princess Arcade is slightly thick but manageable. I layered Two-ish coats of the glitter over Black creme. Nail- jewelry is right!

Here is my base color Black Taxi.
 This you see here is just ONE coat of polish. The formula on this was a little thick but easy enough to work with. Besides, they had me at "one-coat- Black".
So I'm really loving my new Nails Inc additions. Nails Inc is available at Sephora stores.

Nails Inc. Floral Street and Kings Cross Crackle

Good evening all!

  I know crackle polishes just became a "thing" again just last year, but doesn't wearing a crackle feel old school now? Nail trends come and go crazy fast don't they? Nails Inc. recently sent me one of their new Special Effects Crackle polishes to try along with a lovely White creme so I paired them for an eye catching look. 
 Kings Cross is a vivid neon Orange crackle. The formula on this crackle is the best I've ever come across. It applies like a jelly and you can really have a play on crackle textures. Meaning, the formula on this allows for thinner or thicker application for thinner or thicker cracks. It is very easy to work with.
  As you can see Kings Cross breaks up great and smooth. I hate when crackles get "lumpy" and you end up needing 17 coats of top coat to smooth it out. Kings Cross gets an shiny squishy texture once top coated and it looks awesome. The only downside is that I don't know how many colors this crackle would look good over since it's slightly sheer.

Here is my base color Nails Inc Floral Street. The name threw me off lol :D.
 This polish was such a pleasant surprise. The formula on this color is so smooth, even and perfectly pigmented. This is not a very bright White. This is a "soft" White. The formula is not a jelly creme but it applies like such. This you see here is just Two effortless coats of Floral Street. This might just be my new favorite White creme.
If you like shatters but have had issues with formulas I suggest checking these crackles by Nails Inc. Out. Nails Inc. polishes are available at Sephora.

Thoughts on neon shatter? I kinda love it.
