Nails Inc Royal Mews, the holographic one....

So today I have a new holographic silver polish from Nails Inc. I got this polish as part of a 7 piece kit on QVC, it was their Today's Special Value (special deal of the day) and each polish worked out to be about £4 which I thought was pretty good value.

This one is called Royal Mews and I heard it will be released on it's own later in the year.

Basically it's a pretty subtle silver holographic polish.

This is 2 coats in some rare English winter sunlight. You can see some peach and pale green shining through.

In fact, I thought it looked better when the light is a bit lower as the colours come out a bit more:

But in my opinion it is best in bright artificial light:

Application was smooth and dry time decent. It took 3 thin coats to acheive opacity but I didn't get any bald spots like sometimes happens with holographic polishes. I did top this one with a topcoat and it made no difference to the holographic quality.

I think this is a nice introduction to holo's if you don't already have any, otherwise it's a nice work appropriate polish. I like my holo's a bit more in your face so after a day I topped mine with GOSH Holographic (which I will show you in another post). This made a good base and overall I think it's a nice addition to my stash.

Hope you enjoy :-)


  1. Ooohhh some good swatches! So glad you are blogging! X

  2. I was wondering what this one looked like on the nail. Nice but subtle. Nice to see you decided to blog too :D

  3. Ahh, thanks ladies. x I was really lucky to get a sneek peak of sun that day! I forgot to mention, this polish wore well too, I had it on for 3 days with minimal wear and a small chip on my thumb!

  4. I'm actually really digging the subtlety of the holo in this! Nice swatches =)


Thanks so much for commenting. I took off the annoying verification thing so I thought I better add some moderation to avoid spam messages, you know what the internet is like!

Anyway, it's great to get comments and I'll verify them as soon as they get to me.
