Nails Inc Borough Road

Do you ever buy a polish and love it in the bottle but feel so disappointed once you get it on the nail? Well my dears, for me that is Nails Inc Borough Road.

I bought a Nails Inc Todays Special Value from QVC about 9 months ago and they had 2 auto-delivery shipments and Borough Road was included in the third. I can't even tell you what the rest of the polishes were, they were so boring I could barely be bothered to look!

Borough Road is a dark blue glass flecked polish with a pink micro glitter which is really pretty in the bottle, unfortunately it just does not show up much on the nail. Don't you hate that!

I tried to find swatches online but didn't come up with anything so here is my offering. I don't know if this is from a yet to be released autumn or winter collection but I guess we'll see.

This polish was really hard to photograph but you can see here that I did capture some of the pink shimmer, this was about as good as it got.

I did manage to capute it in some sunlight, where is all that pretty pink shimmer that we can see in the bottle??

This polish just isn't me. I've already take it off and am going to use one of the new OPI Germany's which I picked up today - I'm excited!!


  1. This reminds me of New Kings Road, looked lush in the bottle and was blah on my nails. Luckily the other 3 in the set were amazing! xo

    1. Yeah, it's just so disappointing!:-( There are so many pretty blues out there this just didn't cut it for me :-(

  2. OH wow, look at those flecks, what a gorgeous polish!!

    1. Glad you like it, I was a bit disappointed but then as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

  3. There is nothing more sad than flecks and glitter which show really well in the bottle but not on the nail. :(

    Also, I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award: http://pieseyes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/liebster-award.html

    1. Thanks Lyndsay!

      Yes it was sad, I'm glad I could send it back!

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